If you haven't heard... I love New York. Not like the "I love New York even though I've never been" kind of way. Like, I truly, deeply have this madly insane love affair with New York. I was fortunate enough to go there twice last year and got to document them all in my 2013 Project Life album. One trip had eleven inserts - ELEVEN.. and I was only there for 3 days.
The photo on the left is from a greeting card that I bought with the intention of using as art on my wall. I scanned it into my computer, made it bigger and added the text using Photoshop.
With my album last year, I had the freedom of using 12x12 albums. Those suckers have a lot of space. This time around, with the smaller 6x8 size, I had to come up with a plan to fit everything in but not end up with an entire album (though that is something I'm thinking about for the future).
I had these awesome Simple Stories page protectors and knew they would be perfect to fit a lot of photos. I used three different configurations; all 2x2, six 2x2 and one 4x6, and six 2x2 and two 3x4's.
I didn't use very many extras because I had so many photos to include. Even still, I didn't get everything I wanted in. Again, this is why I'm thinking of doing a separate album just for my New York trips. The thing with the 2x2 sized pockets is that it can be hard to fit a photo taken in landscape. So to fix that, I printed off a photo as 2x4 and cut it down the middle to fit into two pockets (see above with the Radio City photo).
At the end I used a four 3x4 pocket page because the next pages would be going back to 3x4 sized poockets. I had already printed out the 2x2 photos, so instead of wasting them and printing again, I just placed them over some patterned paper from Glitz Design.
