Document Your December: Cut Outs and Countdown Templates

It's time for our annual Document Your December sale at The Lilypad. This is a great time to prepare for scrapping December and Christmas 2018, or even to collect some supplies to scrap a past Christmas. There's nothing like some brand new goodies to help me dip into those old pictures and finish those albums!

Liz has Countdown Cut-Outs, and two versions of  Countdown Templates: one with 25 photo spots, and one with 31 photo spots. They are all 30% OFF through this weekend! Let's take a look!

Weeks 38-44: My Catch Up Post!

Finally! After weeks of being behind I finally got caught up on my weekly pages last weekend. I'm going to share all my pages, but before I do I thought I would share a few tips on how to get caught up on those project life type pages.

1. Keep those photos organized! At the end of every week, I would make sure to get all my photos off my phone, DSLR and my hubby's phone. I would keep those photos organized by week. I knew that if I at least kept those photos organized it would be much easier to come back and get them scrapped.

2. Put your photos in the templates first. In most cases I was able to put those in at the end of the week, I just didn't have time to finish my page.

3. Add journaling. I did this before "decorating" my page because I knew once I got it done I would have more freedom to just go in and get that page done.

4. Keep the embellishments simple. I didn't spend a lot of time adding lots of extras. At this point in the game, I knew that if I didn't get caught up quickly I might never get caught up. Now that I'm caught up I can spend a bit more time on each of my current pages.

Would you like to see what I've been up to for the last 7 weeks? It's pretty much about my kids and homeschooling. It's what I do!

Week 38
We celebrated a Birthday. My oldest daughter got her license! We went hiking.
