Scrapbook Redirect

Remember Austin's scrapbook? It's been on my "to do" list for, well, 9 months, to keep up with it. And I've failed. If I remember correctly, I only have two months completed, plus an additional title page.

The thing is, I love those title pages. I love having a larger sized photo of Austin's monthly picture, with his stats that month. I really want to finish those for his first year. But I have zero desire to do the other traditional style pages that I'd need for a "complete" album.

So I've changed direction. I've ordered up a black signature binder from Becky Higgins.

I've also ordered 12x12 page protectors, which I will use to insert the completed traditional pages and finish the title pages for the first year. This will make me happy. I also purchased these page protectors, and I have these ones at home already. I'll be using those for all the prints that I had planned on putting into the traditional album. No journaling, much less stress. Just finish the fun title pages, insert my photos, and done.

This has already reduced my stress level because I don't have to worry about having to come up with a year's worth of traditional layouts. I'll share pictures soon :)
