We are officially halfway through the 2017 Day2Day Project!!! Congratulations to all of those who are continuing with their daily photos and weekly layouts of what will become an album to treasure. I can’t believe it’s July already! I have loved seeing everyone’s weekly pages and getting a glimpse into the daily routine and some amazing adventures that you all go on. Keep up the good work everyone!
The second half of the Pre-Designed Book for the year is now available in the Forever Store ready for you to drag and drop your photos in and just add some journaling – the rest is done for you to make this a fast quick project. It’s available in both 12 x 12″ and 11 x 8.5″ All pieces can be moved around for ease in customization and re-used on other layouts.
It’s time to announce the July Day2Day Themes! There are some great new themes for you to play around with, look through your lens and find something interesting to take photos of that represents your daily life. The first full week of July features one of our all time favourite themes, so embrace the challenge, shoot from different angles, make something “ordinary” look like a work of art. Stretch your photo taking skills and challenge yourself with your captures – it’s all about recording your Day2Day life, those around you, and of course, having fun!
The themes themselves are a suggestion only, to help you out when thinking or planning what photos to take during your Day2Day lives. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to the Day2Day project – snap a photo each day to place on a weekly page that then leads to a fabulous book at the end of the year. Very much like a visual diary! What could be better?!?! This project is the perfect place for those random photos that may not usually have a “home” in regular album making – or it could be the record for your entire year. The flexibility is endless, because it is entirely your own project to do in your style, your way. One of the best things about the Day2Day project is that by taking a photo each day you can improve your photography skills along the way. It doesn’t matter if you use your phone, a “point and shoot”, or a DSLR – all that matters is that you take a photo with whatever camera you have at hand.
Here is the theme list for July 2017! The FREE co-ordinating 2017 Day2Day July Themes Kit can be found HERE at the Forever Store. If you would like to print the handout, you can right click on the image, save it and print it out at home.
Share your layouts on the pixels2Pages Facebook Group, or you can share them on the p2P Plan2Scrap Club which is a private Facebook Group. You can add the hashtags #forever and #day2dayproject and if you’d like to join in on Instagram, post your daily photos using those same hashtags.
For some inspiration look through the gallery below to see the 2017 Day2Day June themed embellishments used on layouts from the 2017 Day2Day First Half Pre-Designed Book. They are also easily recoloured, filled with paper or altered using the Threshold Filter to customise the artwork to your own style. The themes have been designed to co-ordinate perfectly with the 2017 Day2Day Second Half Pre-Designed Books and Forever Design Maps 15 which will make your pages come together quickly, easily and seamlessly making the weekly pages effortless! Both are available in 12×12″ and 11×8.5″ sizes. There is also a 2017 Day2Day 2nd Half Mini Kit available for purchase separately that is included with the Pre-Designed Books for those of you that are using Design Maps, Blueprints or your own layouts with your Day2Day project.
