Yes I am a chronological scrapper. I know there are so many “names” out there who say not to scrapbook that way. But I just can’t help it. It is my need for organization. In the past I have used scrap calendars for each of my kids to keep things manageable. It was just one layout per month per child for a total of 3 layouts each month. Sounds totally do-able, right? Well, even with that relaxed schedule, I did not get my pages done this past year. I made it to March and then dropped off the face of the scrapbooking earth.
Well, the change of the new year has got me motivated to get things done and I am happy to say that I have completed about 8 layouts in about 5 hours this past week. I will be posting photos of those projects over the next few days.
Here are my layouts for the month of April.
This one I posted back in September with the thought that I would be getting the rest of the series done shortly. That never happened.
So here are the next two for the series. This first one was made with a bunch of scraps from my stash. I just slapped down torn strips of pattern paper and boxed it all in with sheet of cardstock that had a hole punched out of the middle of it – cut out the middle and the pattern paper turns into a tidy frame.
This layout was super fast since I used a sheet of pre-layout-designed pattern paper with coordinating stickers and epoxies that have been hiding in my stash. Throw in a thickers alphabet and I was good to go.
