I had a spare black 6x8 album as well as a selection of Becky Higgins Project Life pages. I certainly have a huge selection of digital project life cards and stamps to use. The biggest problem was to narrow down a selection to use... and make my own kit, so I made a moodboard of sorts.
Once I'd made this I could set up my album. I made a selection of different page protectors for each day, but am prepared to change these out for others if the photos or journaling require this on any day.
If you've seen my Project Life pages, you may have concluded that I have a thing for different sized pages! I found some Project Life Design I in my stash and realised they could be trimmed down to 4x8 by removing the top pocket. I didn't have enough for one each day, so ordered some more from Crafthouse. They arrived on my doorstep before 8am the following morning! I call that excellent service. At this stage I think that some days my journaling may end up in those pockets and other days, photos.
Next preparation was to make some day of the week tabs. You can see how I make tabs here. These have been attached to the 4x8 inserts just as an added little detail. I used a digital card from Project Life x Stampin Up Moments Like These with digital stamps from Love Day Seed
My last preparation has been to print some filler cards I may use, just as a time saving device. I've traditionally printed these on cardstock on my printer but the dark cards don't print so well, so I've had these printed on photo paper professionally. I love the depth of colour and gloss finish:)
So, that's it until I start my day and remember to take photos as I go. Over the rest of this week, I hope to blog a selection of photos, along with my process for taking those and why, as well as my design process and eventually (hopefully) next week, the finished album. I hope you come back to check it out and I'll certainly be excited to check out other projects online.

Edited: As I hit publish, my Monday has started here in NZ and the camera and phone have both seen some action already!
