Here's my week six layout without the insert.
For my insert collages, I sized my instagram photos to 2"x2". That gave me room for three columns and five rows since I also included a two inch wide title on the front side made out of elements from the project life kit that's available at jessicasprague.com. On the back side, I used the same amount of photos but finished it off with a strip of patterned paper at the bottom. It worked out good to limit the collage to 10 inches tall so that I could still print it at home on 8.5x11 photo paper. I printed the title separately on cardstock.
If you haven't made a collage in photoshop or elements before, it's easier than you think! Just create a new document at the dimensions you want and 300 pixels per inch. Size your pics accordingly and drop them into place with the move tool. If you need help knowing how to size your pics, the video in this post explains how at the beginning.
That was 30 instagram pics in one day! I don't necessarily want to post 30 pics to instagram in one day. It seems that would be somewhat annoying to my followers. I may have posted more than average on that day, but for a lot of them I deleted the image from my feed as soon as the filter was applied. That way a copy is saved in my camera roll, but I don't have to bother everyone with a constant stream of every detail of my life. :)
One of the 4x6 slots contains very brief journaling to go along with all of my day in the life pics. I used a digital journaling card (again, from jessicasprague.com) so that I could easily type it on my computer and print it out on cardstock.
It was nice that I had a little help with the photos on this side. Since I was sick and couldn't go to my little niece's third birthday party, Gary took some pics for me so I could still document what everyone else was doing without me on Saturday!
And here it is all together.
