I am late to the party, but I am joining in with some gals I really look up to for a fun project to get our summer memories in an album. The deets can be found at Little Paper Projects. The class contributors are super talented and continue to inspire me on Instagram and other social media sites. This class is free and it’s not too late to jump in!
I would like to get our summer into an album! I decided to create it digitally b/c I am quick and efficient and have come to terms that I am a digi girl (even though I totally crush on all the paper products out there). I have decided to take on some scrappy planning this school year so hopefully my paper itch will get some relief. BUT this album will be all digital and I am thrilled to finally start putting it together!
The format will be in a pocket style. I am loving the trendy 9 x 12 PL pages, but I need to keep printing at 12 x 12 since it is more economical. I decided to have the best of both worlds. I will scrap 9 x 12 and add a strip of paper or some other goody to the remaining 3 inches. I will still order my 12 x 12 pages, use my 12 x 12 page protectors, and add to my growing number of 12 x 12 albums! I really need to take a trip to Ikea soon to find something to house all of my albums in!
I could cut the strip off after printing, but I am kind of diggin’ the look….
My opening spread is photo-less. I did have photos plugged in, but it was just too difficult to only choose a few photos that represented our whole summer – especially for a family of six. So I decided to just use some of my fun summer items from my digi stash. I did purchase a few new things from Ali Edward’s site.
This left side of my opening is a complete lift of someone who inspires me in a very special way … Annette Haring. What is that phrase when you scraplift someone to a tee? I am drawing a blank, but whatever that phrase is – that is what I did here! Annette is my team mate from the LOVE | DAY | SEED Creative Team and it is a privilege to be on a design team with her!
The right side was just filled up with a bunch of summer goodies from Ali Edwards, Designer Digitals, Studio Calico, and LOVE| DAY | SEED. To get more inspiration for scrapping summer memories, check out all the contributors to the class…
and thanks to Little Paper Projects (Jen Lake) for the fun class! I have enjoyed seeing all the inspiration come through Instagram! I cannot wait to add more pages to my Little Summer Joy Book!!
