Love Where You Live - A Finished Project | 6x8 Soft Cover Photobook from Artifact Uprising

Hi friends! Do you remember Love Where You Live - a class by Little Paper Projects?  The project quickly turned out to be one of my favorite projects. I set out to document our first home and all the precious memories we shared there.  I documented each room, the small details of the spaces and the special moments we shared there.

At the time the class was underway, my schedule didn't permit me creating physical pocket pages. Instead, I chose to create digital pages using 6x8 templates from Little Lamm & Co turned horizontally.  I used elements from Little Lamm & Co.'s Nest Collection, One Little Bird's Dwell collection and a few of the freebies from the class itself.

You can see more of my digital pages here.

Now, six months later, I decided to print these pages and combine them into a soft cover album.  I used Artifact Uprising, one of my favorite printers, to finalize my project.  They offer beautiful soft albums in 6x8 size so this was a simple solution.  Artifact Uprising's system is easy to use so uploading my images and arranging my album only took about 30 minutes. 

When I received my album in the mail, I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of my album. I've included a little flip through video at the bottom of this post. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I have!

"This little house has been the perfect first home for us.  We love the area we live in, we have great neighbors, enjoy the park, and have learned a lot about owning a home.  Making a house a home is always an ongoing, never ending project...  I’m happy to have done so much of the work ourselves, along with help from our family and neighbors. It gives a sense of pride and is a welcoming place to come home to each evening.  We cherish the memories that are made here and the friends we are able to welcome through the front door.  We are thankful for the traditions we’ve begun in this home and for the blessings God’s given us while living here.  We eagerly look forward to the time we get to spend here in the future."   - Excerpt

Above is part of the five page Google document I wrote out recently about the story of our home and where we live. I'm currently participating in a class called Love Where You Live and really enjoying the inspiration there. I feel so led to do document our home and the memories we share inside those walls.

Today I'm sharing the first few pages of my album.  I decided to do a digital 8x6 album with horizontal pages. I chose very simple elements and lots of white space.  I plan to print the album in a softcover book via Artifact Uprising when it is complete.

I did a quick photography tour of our home using my Nikon DSLR because I wanted high quality photographs in good light.  But, in addition, I've selected and matched in some iPhone snapshots from this year of us enjoying each of the spaces.

I went room by room and wrote out notes to copy/paste into my album.  I wanted to share particulars about the spaces, things we've changed, added, built, and enjoy.  I also noted specific memories about each space, like how we enjoy watching the deer in the backyard via the kitchen window and how Addie stands in the kitchen watching us prepare meals.

I am so excited to share more of my album soon.  At this time however, I've been a little preoccupied with the new fall sticker release and the Love Lives Here sticker release (as well as the fact that this very weekend we tore down our old back deck and are constructing a new one, ourselves!)
