Memory Making Success

This past Saturday was National Scrapbooking Day. I worked on various projects throughout the day, and will call it a great success. Do I still have more to do? Of course, I do, but I made a lot of progress. I thought I would share a bit of my game plan with you so that can take away whatever helps you.

My first step, early last week, was to set goals, and make a plan. Becky Higgins from Project Life suggests that we begin with the end in mind. I've used that method for quite a while now, and it really helps me. My current family scrapbook is just about caught up because of the previous statement. It is an 8 x 8 Project Life Album with ring binders. It is exclusively made up of digital pages designed from the Project Life App on my phone. I started the album in 2016, and plan on using that this year as well. One of my goals was to bring it up to date completely. While I fell a bit short, I did get a lot of 2017 done. Here is the last layout I made. Now all I have to do is get it printed. After that it is as easy as slipping it into a page protector.

I also wanted to complete my granddaughter's first year album. It is a combination of traditional, and Project Life Pocket Pages. I had all the pictures printed that I was missing, and simply slipped them into the pockets chronologically. I plan on giving my daughter that album on Mother's Day. Done, and done!

I had a few pages in two other albums that had holes in them. One was our Family Album, and the other was strictly Christmas. I made the two pocket pages shown at the top of this post for each of those albums. They are both hybrid as well, meaning they are a combination of Traditional, Digital, and Pocket Page layouts.

I also made two traditional scrapbook pages for my family album that goes through 2016. Just a couple more additions to that album, and it is history.

So there it is! If I can help you with any of your paper crafting projects, please let me know. I will be happy to share whatever information, and tips that I have.

Thanks for joining me today!
