I did alright in 2012 collecting all the items, taking photos & writing each day the problem was assembling the pages into the binder. It was difficult as I did not have a location where I could keep my album out with out it becoming a dog toy or cat napper mat.
So for 2013 I plan to continue the style and concept of project life. I am only going to make it my own!!! After moving this past Spring and seeing the 12+ boxes of scrapbook stuff it made me realize that I have stuff not scrapbooks. It was hard but I made a promise to myself that I would use up everything I have before buying more.
After digging into the boxes and finding several mini albums I realize how much fun I love doing mini albums...so the idea hit me for 2013 I will do a mini album!
Why a mini album?
- It is 6x6 so I can carry it with me
- The pages are both card stock and plastic pockets. The pockets are made from misc other pages that were cut down to fit the size.
- I can use up a great deal of stashed items in that size format
- It will fit on the shelf easier
- There is only 2 of us
- Don't feel obligated to scrap everyday!!!
I know you are asking yourself "How will 365 days fit in a 6x6?"
That is the best part, if and when I feel this album is full I can begin another mini album. It doesn't have to all fit into one book.
Here is a peek at the beginnings of the 2013 album:
I also found myself looking at old scrapbook books and gathering new ideas. I loved how old some of these books were I do not know if you can even buy some of these anymore. The one I love most is The Big Picture: Scrapbook Your Life. The concept is the same just the material we maybe using is different.
Lots of Inspiring going on this last day of 2012!
I hope that 2013 brings lots of creativity & completion of unfinished projects!
Let me know what your plans for 2013 will be....
