Memory Making Monday - Scrapbooking Tips

Hello, and welcome to another Memory Making Monday on my blog. I don't have any earth shattering tips that will change your life, but I wanted to share a few that might make your scrapbooking a little easier.

Just before Christmas, I decided to start an album that was just dedicated to our Christmases, past, present, and future. I wanted to make it using the Project Life method. I ordered the 3 ring album shown above from Amazon. I just cut one of the insert cards from our Hello December Collection, and slipped it in the front pocket. I then added a rhinestone that I colored with a red Copic marker. That's it! I found all the pages that I had scrapbooked in the past, and slipped them into the page protectors that came with the album. I had a few Project Life pages that I made a couple of years ago, and added those as well. It was really fun to see how my style of scrapbooking changed from year to year. I left the album on the coffee table, and my family and visitors really enjoyed looking at it.

My point is this...whatever style suits you best, just get those pictures out of storage boxes, and into albums for everyone to enjoy. I really don't have a specific style any longer. I want things simple, and doable. I use digital, traditional, and slip into pockets Project Life style these days. Don't fret or over analyze. If you have an overwhelming amount of photos to get done, I suggest you start with the most current, and work backwards. Your friends, and family don't really care how much you decorate the pages, or how many elements you use. Looking at the pictures in albums is what makes everyone happy...including you!

Here's wishing you a wonderful new year of memory making. If I can answer any questions, or help you in any way, please contact me.
