New Year, New Album!

Happy New Year! I hope you all celebrated safely last night! I stayed in and watched movies while hubby was out Uber driving. He called me between rides to share stories about the passengers that he had. And it was good that they all took Uber, as they definitely should NOT have been driving.

Sundays will be focused on a mini scrapbook series. I will show you different layouts that I have done for my black and white striped mini album, that cover what has happened during the week. It won’t have every photo that I take, but will have a few, for sure! Each week will have some journaling, at least to outline the things that happened during the week. There will be just plain ol’ average weeks, where we may not have anything exciting happen, but that is part of life too, right? Just the everyday stuff between the “special events”. But, those days are important too. They seem to go fast, because as we age, we don’t have the “firsts” like we did when we were young. (this was a discussion that hubby and I and a few peeps were talking about just a few days ago) So, we need to celebrate the every day, too!

Now, it’s the first, so there aren’t a whole lot of things that happened this week (of 2017), so today I am just showing a few pics of how I decided to do the title page. It was a combination of ideas that I have seen on Pinterest.

Here are the pieces before I put them in the page protector (to help avoid glare). I used one of the woodgrain papers from the Rustic Home Fundamentals paired with Black cardstock, and some retired gold glitter paper. (yes, we still have gold, but this was one of the other colors in the old 3 color packs)

I used my cricut explore to cut the numbers and words. I love being able to use the fonts that I have on my laptop! (especially since I seem to hoard them!)

This is what it looks like when it’s in the page protector. The page is 6×8, and has four slots that are 3×4. I think that it turned out great!

And here you can see it is in my mini album! I will have the next section for you next Sunday!

So, the new year brings many new things, like the Seasonal Expressions book, which goes live today! LOTS of fun new things in there! I’m going to share the papers below, but you can go to the site and check out all the new stuff in the shop!

      I don’t recall the font for the numbers, but I used Watermelon Script for the glittery words!

      Thanks! It is such a fun font, and I can’t wait to do this album!
