12x12 Activity Album - Project Life Style
I am calling this Emily's activity album. I wanted a way to document and store her certificates, ribbons, and medals for activities that she has done or is doing outside of school.
The album is a 12x12 orange We R Memory Keepers 3-ring album from Michael's.
I started with an 8-1/2 x11 layout of the only pictures I have from Emily's one-time try at dance in 2007 when she was 4. I made this layout and then put it with the dance recital book.
Than we moved on to swim lessons and I added her certificates to this 8x8 page protector with a tab and some patterned paper.
I added some pictures and journaling to a 6x12 page protector.
Next I took a couple of pictures from when Emily did gymnastics and power tumbling to a 4x6 page protector. I printed the tabs and Memory journaling box from my Silhouette Cameo.
Then we moved on to dive lessons. Once again I used a 6x12 page protector and added pictures, journaling, and embellishments.
I made an 8x10 layout of Emily's individual dive picture. The other side of the protector is her team dive picture.
After lessons Emily tried out and made a local dive competition team. We started attending dive meets locally and out of town. I needed a way to store and document the ribbons, medals, and pictures.
I am using the Becky Higgins Design A page protectors. The 3x4 pockets hold the medals perfectly.
I created a title page for each event. (top left corner)
I printed out all of the score sheets from each event. I printed them at 8-1/2 by 11 and cut off a half an inch around so I could use some patterned paper to add color. These are in 8-1/2x11 page protectors.
I used the same design for all the other dive meets. Score sheet and a Design A page protector with title card, medals, pictures, and journaling.
If I had a ribbon instead of a medal then I included it with the score sheet.
I also used some motivational stickers from Cosmo Cricket to add throughout the album.
I found some motivational printables from the Internet as well to add to the album.
Here is another 8x10 layout for Emily's 2011/2012 dive picture.
For this event, I didn't have enough pictures, so I used a Becky Higgins Design H page protector.
I also made picture collages in Picasa for some of Emily's awesome dive pictures that I paid a photographer to take at one of the dive events. This is an 8-1/2x11 collage in a Becky Higgins page protector.
The album is not full yet so I will keep adding to it as we go to more dive events.
This album was a labor of love!! I am so happy that I have everything in one place and the memories are captured!
Thank you for looking!
