Project Life | Week Six

This week I finally focused on storytelling. It is so heavy with journaling that I'm thinking maybe I should have added an insert, to add some breathing room. I haven't done that yet. I'm trying to keep things contained in the double page spread to keep the cost of printing down.

They look a lot different because this is the first week that I haven't done the big 6x12 photo. There just wasn't one that I felt was worthy of the space when I needed the space for the journaling this week.

Here are the pages side-by-side:

Up close and personal...

At some point I might go back and embellish further. But I'm okay with the simplicity for now, especially because the text keeps think looking a bit busier than I'm used to in my layouts.

"A man's spirit sustains him in sickness,
    but a crushed spirit who can bear?"
Proverbs 18:14


Linking up this week at:


  1. I don't think the text makes it look too heavy at all - I think it still looks clean and bright. I love that scroll/swirly overlay down the right hand side.
    PS Hope all are feeling better now.

    1. Thanks Jules!
      We are all doing much better. My hubby is still home sick, but the rest of us are good.

  2. I love how you really focused on storytelling this week! I don't think it takes away from your pages at all.

  3. LOVE the focus on storytelling! Your pages don't look at all busy to me - I think they look great!

  4. I agree, it looks very balanced! I think it's great you included the loss of Whitney. I can't believe I didn't think to do so as well. :/
    I'm sorry everyone has been sick! Great pages!

  5. LOVE the simplicity of your beautiful pages, Cami! Hugs!!

    Love all the details you included about Whitney and about the week in general. She really did make an impact!

  9. LOVE the journaling! That chicken noodle soup, the little one peering over the edge of the couch, and the little one curled up with a book - awesome! You captured your sick week so wonderfully! Hope you are all feeling better by now! Have a great rest of the week!

  10. You did get a lot of journaling in but you won't regret it when you re-read those stories in the future. Your layout and photos look great.

    Hope you're all on the mend.

  12. Camilla, great pages this week! Love, love love all the journaling... I journal a LOT and I love to see others incorporating that into their pages. I also love the Whitney top hits list. Great idea to include her on your page, I may have to go back and add that! HOpe everyone is feeling better now.

  13. Cami-love these pages, and love all of the journaling!

  14. This is inspiring me to do some digital scrapbooking of my own. :) I have Creative Memories software and I love playing with it! (I mostly just use it for blog stuff, though. :)

    Btw, I've been meaning to tell you--I really like your profile pic. :)
