Today I’m sharing my October pages for my year-long project, courtesy of the Scrapbook Your Year e-course. This simplified, stream-lined approach has really helped me to live my motto of Taking the Crap Out of Scrapbooking. I get in, I get out. Memories are saved. Shall we begin?
Number of photos taken in September: 350
Number of photos used on these pages: 26
Yes. The 2016 Bee Dance figures heavily into this month, because, duh! If you have a bunch of shots from one thing, use ’em if it makes you happy. Bee Dance pics? Make me happy. And Dan’s first set of school pics, too.
Simple. Easy. Done. Honestly? It just makes me happy. And you can tell! Just look at how happy I look in the upper right as I’m desperately trying to record a well-lit intro message to my 30 Days of Thankful 2016 e-course (and yes, you can still sign up until November 15!)
I try to incorporate a bit of my work life into each month (tag shot, upper right, and there are only THREE left of this stamp set, which is NOT the one pictured). I mean, let’s be honest, for many of us, work is a huge part of life. Also, Tara Whitney. #swoon
THIS is working for me. THIS could work for you, too. I have heard from so many students how happy they are to have a simple approach to dealing with an overwhelming number of photos and the expectation that we are somehow supposed to SCRAPBOOK IT ALL.
Regardless of how behind you feel you are, this approach can free your scrapbook mind! Or something like that.
If you missed the rest of 2016, here’s the catch up:
JOIN ME AND MAKE YOUR OWN RECORD OF LIFE! Scrapbook Your Year is an online workshop that is helping women let go of the mucky muck that can bog down a year-long memory keeping project. Learn how setting limits can free you up to share your photos and stories and actually get pages done! To learn more, click on the image below.
CLASSROOM NOTE: I have added 8.5 x 11 templates to the classroom! Granted, the videos are all recorded using 12 x 12 templates, but you can still adapt your approach using the new templates offered in this size.
