You all know how much I loved my Daily Life Project, right? I've been thinking about what I'm going to do in 2015 for the last month or so. Since I loved scrapping the double pages each week I'm going to keep up with that goal but in different sort of style. There were a few things I sort of wish I would have included on my Daily Life Templates: spots for little bits of journaling (instead of one big chunk), spots for all those pretty journal cards you see out there, more variety in photo size, and fuller filled pages. I think I've come up with the perfect style of templates for this project. They are easy to use, hold variety of sizes for photos and journaling cards, and have little bits of journaling spots around the template. The first set will be releasing tomorrow. You can get a sneak peek here or above (see that top template?).
How am I going to print this year, you ask?
While I love photo albums, and that's what I plan to do with my Daily Life 2014 Album, this year I'm planning on trying something else out. Since my kids look at my albums a lot and it's been so hard waiting to order pages for a whole year, I've decided to go back to a more traditional approach.
I purchased this Classic Leather Ring 12x12 Ring Album at Michaels. It's the We R Memory Keepers version, and I plan on printing my individual pages from Persnickety Prints and sliding them in the 12x12 page protectors.
I'm excited about this project because it's doable. I was able to keep up with my 2014 album, and I know I can keep up with this. Plus I'm excited that the style is going to be just a little different than last year.
That's not all I have planned. Want to hear about my two other goals? Well, I'm going to tell you even if you don't want to....because I need someone to be accountable to.
I'm planning on scrapping a calendar page each month so that at the end of the year I have a calendar all ready to order! I also have some special templates planned for this. Also in the sneak peek. Plus, I believe there's going to be a special Scrap Orchard challenge going on for this. This calendar thing wasn't my idea, but I loved it so I'm participating. (I'll keep you posted on the challenge)
Then my final goal is to finish Matthew's Album. My goal is to scrap 2 pages a week until his album is done. This is the one that might be challenging....but I'm going to try. He needs an album on the shelf.
1. Scrap a double page each week of 2015.
2. Scrap a calendar page each month.
3. Finish Matthew's Album.
1. Set aside a specific time to scrap every week. Probably Saturday night. I think I can accomplish 4-5 pages during that time.
2. Have my kit and templates ready ahead of time.
3. Turn of the internet.
1. It keeps my sane. Scrapping is my down time.
2. My kids need the albums.
3. Do I need any other reasons?
Let's do this thing. Who's with me?
P.S. I'll be sharing my pages each week with you again.
