I made it a goal this year to add more notes and details about my photos and our life. It’s usually just a sentence or maybe even a few words, but I love that years from now we will be able to look back at this album and remember all of these little moments.
For this pocket, I wanted to use this little frame to hold our weekly events. Since it’s typed on vellum, you can see through to the next page. It makes for a fun little “peek-a-boo” effect.
Here’s another example of using white space to add journaling. I typed my notes onto the bedspread of my photo. If I would have tried to add my journaling above the photo on the tag, I wouldn’t have had enough space. I love that I was able to add the details about my son’s new “big boy bed”.
Sizing photos smaller than the photo pockets allows you to add titles and journaling onto the bottom layer. For the pocket above, I printed my picture at 4×4 inches and adhered my photo to a 4×6 piece of patterned paper. Doing this gave me room to add some journaling and a title.
I also love to add tags and embellishments to the “empty space” of my photos. I trimmed down a journaling card, typed my thoughts and then added a few little fun layers on top of the journaling card.
And that’s about it!! Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I hope these examples have inspired you to add more journaling and thoughts to your Life Pages album!!
