And for the past
I have decided, though, that I am going to try a new approach in 2012. First, I am not going to create so many layouts. Every single picture I take does not require an entire 12 x 12 page in an album, but I do still want to remember those moments. So, I bought this from Amazon today.
It's the Project Life Amber Edition Core Set by Becky Higgins. I have considered this project for the past couple of years, but thought it meant I would have to take a picture every day of the year and I know myself well enough to know that won't happen. However, I've seen other bloggers showing how they make it work without a picture a day. So, I am going to give it a try. I'm hoping it will allow me to create fewer layouts while still recording whatever memories I want.
I also bought this variety pack of 12 x 12 divided sheet protectors. Having so many different types of pages will give me the freedom to put the album together however I like. Sixty sheet protectors fit into an album. Awesome!
I'm looking forward to playing around with this new system for documenting my family's memories, but I'm not letting myself open a single package until I have put away all my scrapbook pages from 2009, 2010, and 2011. Ridiculous!
