We're one month into 2016 and so far I've stayed caught up. Which I realize is not such a huge accomplishment. I switched up my format this year - from 12x12 to 6x8 pocket pages/albums. Switching things up makes me excited to scrap again. I remember before I switched to pocket pages a few years ago, I was soooooo tired of scrapbooking I almost gave up on it. I'm pretty excited to take things in a slightly new direction.
When I made my resolutions mini-booklet, I knew I was planning this change, so I made it the right size to slip into a 6x8 page protector in the beginning of my album.
I've stockpiled a pretty large assortment of pocket page styles to pull from. I'm hoping this keeps me inspired. This month I incorporated a page with 12 2x2 pockets. I Instagram so many of my photos, so I just printed a few of them out as 2x2s.
This spread covers a couple events and some little bits and pieces of daily life at the moment. I cut some large Studio Calico cards down to fit in the 2x2 pockets.
I still love writing directly on photos. Sometimes I deliberately take photos with white space just so I can use it for journaling. I printed out pictures of a David Bowie album and Alan Rickman as Snape to add. Those two losses really got to me.
I tried out my Fuse tool for the first time to make a pocket to hold my birthday card from my work friends. It has cat stickers on it and everything! I used an overlay to make a pocket to hold some notes and a funny story.
And when students stop by your classroom to bring you birthday stickers, you definitely save them. That's it for January. Thanks for visiting!
