At the end of a year I like to make a years review LO. Just a brief word about each of the months with the highlights. It's also a really nice way to finish off the years scrapbook.
This year I found a 12x12 paper from Simple Stories that was perfect for this year review page.
It's from the Daily Grind collection - Everyday Hustle.
Here is the LO using that paper.
The paper does most of the work for you which is why it's so perfect for this project.
I did add some of the matching stickers in the centre.
I used some old Thickers and printed off my photos really diddy to fit in the little boxes.
I then use Thickers on the spines. I do add some PVA to make sure they don't fall off.
I still have a couple that need replacing. The two at the top that are unnamed are our first US trip when we got married in Orlando. I need to bite the bullet and sort those. I scrapped those in 2007. They look so dated now and nothing like my style at all. Part of me would love the scrap those photos all over again. I also need to start new albums for my kids too. Theirs are overflowing.
But I have started off well and as you can see I do have my 2014 album ready which is good as I only filed my 2013 towards the end of the year.
Maybe this should be my New Years Resolution....sort my scrapbooks.
If you think this looks impressive and that I look organised. Let me show you what sits on the table at the bottom of this shelf unit.
Not quite so impressive, eh?!!
I still have a long way to go until I feel organised : )
How do you file and store your LO's? I'd love to hear. Feel free to leave a comment here.
Thanks and here's to a better and more organised 2014!!
