FINALLY! I know some of you have really been wanting to see my Project 365 album. My office just got a flip video camera and it is SWEET, so here is a little video I made of my album. Nothing fancy. Just feel like we are sitting together flipping through my album (no pun intended). You can even see my horribly chewed finger nails – the bad habit I can’t break.
This album is the easiest scrapbooking I have ever done. Every day (or every couple days) I take my daily photos and use my Ali Edwards days of the week brushes to stamp the day on the picture. (I crop the photo to 4×6, 300 dpi and use the brushes at 700 px in Photoshop). Then once a week I get the pictures developed and stick them in the album. (I get my photos printed on matte paper at either Walgreens or Wolf Camera – mostly because I simply can’t wait to get them in the mail.)
I am not as diligent at doing the journaling cards. I was REALLY behind (like eight-ten weeks behind), but am now only a couple weeks behind. I am hoping to get caught up this weekend, but we will see. I stuck the journaling cards in the first half of the album (I ran out of time or I would have done the whole thing) and this had made things a lot easier because I don’t have to think when I am working on the album. Just pull out the cards and start writing.
I am keeping a 365 blog, so that is what I refer to when doing my journaling cards. I just pull it up and copy what I wrote onto the cards.
If you are not doing Project 365, or you didn’t get a kit so feel you can’t, this is not true. You totally still can do it – and you can start at any time. See this post for ideas about how to do 365 without a kit. If taking a picture every day is overwhelming, just take one a week. (I know I have said that before, but it is so true and so easy. I just think everyone should do this project.)
Hope you enjoy looking through my album!
