After brainstorming a bit about how I would use this fabulous stamp set, it occurred to me how wonderful it would work with my Project 365!  I have gotten way behind on my album but had already gotten a few months worth of photos printed and inserted into my CTMH Photo Storage Pages. I just love these things! They can hold 6 – 4”x6” photos on each side for a total of 12 pictures!  They work perfectly for this type of album.

As you can see, I have a title spot for each week in the upper left corner and then the pictures for the week, Sunday – Saturday and then at the bottom are the journaling blocks for each day.

Below is a close-up of the journaling blocks. I used the ‘today’ journaling stamp and did a little masking to make it longer to fit the space. I still need to stamp the date on each block.

Below is the title block in the upper left corner. Isn’t the left border darling!?! Looks just like a sheet torn out of a notebook. I used some of the sayings from the stamp set to stamp around the edges and then stamped the days of the week. So cute!

  9. Love the extended journaling spot and using the stamps around the border. Like how you torn out just enough of the edge of the "note" paper to give it the ripped out look.
