Project 365/ Photo of the Day Book Giveaway!

Note: I didn't forget about Template Tuesday!  This week it will be Template Thursday!  :)

I am coming up on my third year of taking a photo a day (also called POTD or Project 365)!  This project, while sometimes a daunting chore, is so rewarding for me and my entire family!  We LOVE looking back at the little moments in life that would have been easily forgotten. Moments with friends, celebrations, summer activities, family favorites, handwritten love notes, and kid's art are just a few of the precious moments I have captured in my Project 365 book!

The biggest obstacle I have faced while doing this project is creating a weekly template.  I have read messages on numerous forums that other folks are struggling with the same issue.  They love capturing their daily lives, but putting them into a book and journaling is difficult and time consuming.

Well, for the past few weeks I have been working on a complete Project 365 book to make this project easier for everybody!  That's right, I teamed up with Wild Blueberry Ink and made:
  • 52 weekly psd templates
  • front and back cover
  • title page
  • 11 hi-lite pages for times where more than one photo is needed to tell the story
  • six 365 stickers that are also psd files so you can customize them! 

The paper and dates are already done for you too!  Simply add your photo and journaling, and you are done!

The templates are made so that you can customize them to fit your needs.  Change the size of the photo boxes, move the dates around, or change out the paper!
Also included is a list of  jounaling prompt ideas and over 100 photo ideas for days when you are stumped!
The 11 hi-lite pages are great for highlighting special occasions when more than one photo is needed to tell the story!

This book will be available to purchase the evening of Dec 31, 2010 at Owl Tree Studios.  BUT I am giving one away on my blog right now!  Simple leave a comment in this blog post, and I will randomly pick one winner this Friday (Dec 31, 2010 at 11AM CST)!  Just in time for the New Year!  Wild Blueberry Ink is giving away a copy too!  COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED.

Thanks for stopping by and good luck!!

  6. Just found your blog today. This is a sweet looking set up. I tried doing P365 for 2 years running... I always wind up doing well for the first few months, and then falling behind for the the last half of the year.

  23. 2010 was my first time doing P365 and I managed to get photos almost everyday, but I still don't have an album assembled. I'd love to be ahead of the game and get pages ready every week in 2011! This album looks amazing!

  24. This is such a fantastic Idea. As a grandmother I am always capturing the moment with the little ones and the big ones as well but then left with photo's and memories. What a wonderful way to keep them both together and leave for years to come. Kuddo's to you all.
