And just like that, I have wrapped up one year of my life in a scrapbook for 2016. (Okay, not just like that—it did take a full year of living, right?)
But I have completed one year using my simplified approach to documenting life, one month and four pages at a time. Here are my pages for December 2016.
I love the consistency from month to month of this basic title page design. A month. A little month circle. And a smattering of my favorite photos for the month. That’s been the approach I’ve taken all year long.
All year long, I’ve mixed in black and white photos where appropriate, and what that really means is that the color quality of the iPhone shot was pretty awful. Black and white saves the day! Although let’s be honest: cool teens always look better in black and white.
And so it goes… a few photos. A few stories. Done and done.
One year in a total of 48 pages. Wanna see what my whole year looks like?
All of these JPEGs are ready to upload to AdoramaPix and I’m going to get my book made in the next few weeks.
My entire process is part of an ongoing, self-paced e-course called Scrapbook Your Year. In this class, I teach you how to pare down your library (it’s really about letting go of expectations that you have to scrapbook it all!) and I teach you the CRAP method of approaching a year-long scrapbook, one month at a time. Plus I provide digital templates for those memory keepers who want to try their hand at creating a bound book from digital files. This approach, however, applies to all memory keepers. It’s simply about getting it done with simplicity and consistency.
This e-course is on sale for 10% off through the end of January. If you’d like to learn more, please click on the image below.
