Scrapbook your year at cathyzielske.com!

Another month has come and gone and today I’m sharing said month in my simple Scrapbook Your Year format. The more I do this approach, the more I feel like this is exactly the type of album I want to be making to summarize a year in the life of this family. But enough of my marketing ploy! Let’s dive … Read More

And just like that, summer is over. Crazy how that happens, isn’t it? I saw down on the weekend and spent about an hour putting together the August pages in my year-long memory keeping project based on my Scrapbook Your Year online class. I really love this simple collection of photos and a handful of words to show me what … Read More

Last month, my youngest child turned 18. I only have two, as you may or may not know, so this is my baby and he is now a legal adult. I snapped a shot of him on his 18th birthday and knew I wanted to use it for a page from mama to son. I decided to film a process … Read More

Mini Album Project: a book of photos and words for the school year

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking34 Comments

Three years ago I shared a mini album project I made for my then senior in high school daughter, Aidan. It was a very simple concept: one photo and one short, written message or memory for each week of that glorious final year of high school.

Another month, another set of pages, another sense of, “I love this system!” That’s my feeling as I put one more set of memories on the books, so to speak. After falling a month behind last month, I decided to just knock out the month of July on Sunday and did so in about an hour. I don’t tell you … Read More

Welcome back, friends, to another installment of Scrapbook Your Year! I played catch up and knocked out another month for my year long album project. Plus, I decided to record a time-lapse video with a few of my thoughts about it. Number of Photos Taken in May: 996 (again, there was a big sports tourney) but I pared that number … Read More

I fell behind a little in my monthly scrapbook project  but it didn’t take long to work my Scrapbook Your Year process and get closer to being back on track! Number of Photos Taken in May: 1,758 (there were three ultimate tournaments and mama rented a big assed lens!) I pared that number down to 560 via much deleting. Once … Read More
