Yesterday I was invited to visit with Tracie Claiborne on her podcast, Live Inspired. Before the show started Tracie asked me if I still scrapbook. I said incredulously, "Of course I still scrapbook!" But then I got to thinking, how would Tracie know this, when I stink so bad at sharing my work! The main reason for this is that I've become quite lazy. When I consider the effort involved in photographing pages/projects and then getting them posted, I generally choose something else to do, ha! But, with my 2017 emphasis on writing/blogging I'm going to try and do better. I'll start with this mini album project that I taught at She Loves Color in October. I'm a BIG fan of small albums that can take the place of a bigger, more time-intensive chronological projects, simply because some years I don't feel like making lots of pages and yet I still want to document the year—AND you can EASILY do this when you step away from a timeline and view your life through a different lens—in this case, your HOME. Remember, chronology is just ONE WAY to organize the photos and stories in a scrapbook. This means there are many, many other ways!
Start by watching this video walk through. I've shared a few insights and tips with the images below. If you have additional questions, leave them for me in the comments and I'll add information to this post.
This album features 66 photos from 2016.
It's one of those FUN and DONE projects that allows me to move on and stay current!
