Scrapbook Your Year 2018, a walk-thru video of my finished album

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking, Tutorials11 Comments

My year-long scrapbooking project, Scrapbook Your Year, has yielded another volume of memories and is now in printed form. It’s always so cool to get the 12 x 12 book in hand because for most of this project, it’s just me and layered templates and photos. There is such a joy in seeing it all come together in printed form.

Today I’m sharing a walk-thru video showing you the finished result! I now have five digital books (I think in the video I said this was my 4th year, forgive me!), and the past three years have been based solely on my philosophy from my e-course, Scrapbook Your Year.

This year, my finished book is 48 pages and cost me $149.99 to print. I don’t know if that seems like a lot but I purchased very few scrapbooking materials in 2018. I buy a ton of stuff for card making and use it for scrapbooking but I spent virtually nothing on proper scrapbook supplies. To me, this complete book of memories for that price seems like a good deal when you factor in the quality of the product provided by AdoramaPix. I have printed all five of my books with this wonderful Brooklyn-based company and love their quality and their customer service.

Without further ado, here is my walk-thru video:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Looks wonderful. Thank you for encouraging us to document. It is a classic and concise system that is easy to follow and certainly a treasure to have in hand. I highly recommend Cathy’s method. Cheers!

    Eee, I also sent my 2018 (105 pages) to Shutterfly last week; damn international shipping but got all the extra pages for free so can’t complain too much – it’s so lovely having it in hand isn’t it? You rocked it Cathy!

    Beautiful! Did you get the leather book cover? Would this work as a 10 x 10 or would the pics be too small?

      I did not! It could work as a 10 x 10, but I would worry about the type size. In that regard, you could reduce the templates FIRST! Before you start, and then adjust the type size to be a bit bigger for each of readability!

    not saving every photo – you’re Marie Kondo-ing your photos. Based on your raves, I used Adorama Pix to do an album celebrating my mother’s 90th birthday. Good call!

    Cathy this looks brilliant, well done on keeping it going for an entire year, I start off with good intentions but well I guess you have an idea how it goes. Thank you for sharing.
