My solution? It's My Life Album (aka Project Life). I love the ease and quickness about this type of documenting scrapbook. I am able to put in my photos easily and add elements to jazz them up! Sometimes I don't have a lot of time and use already created and beautiful journal cards, or if I have time, I sit down and create my own special creations. I have not veered from traditional scrapbooking, I add 12x12 layouts as well.
As you see some of the journal cards I just placed in the pocket, while others I spent some time personalizing. You really see this on the left hand side with the "Love" journal card and the "Deer Mount" journal card.
I'm so thankful for a beautiful vacation and that my puppy was well taken care of. Because I had less time to spend on this spread, I really focused on pictures I love and memories.
Documenting every day life doesn't have to be stressful. I print most my photos from home and if I don't have anything really interesting that I want to document, than I can skip a week. This is your album, this is your life, it is what you make it and what you want to document. So don't get stressed if you skip a week or if it is easier for you to do a layout and spread a month. Make it your own album. That is why I call this project "My Life" Album.
Join me each Tuesday for more spreads, journal card ideas, pocket ideas, organizing tips and much more related to documenting your life!
