It's the last day of sneak peek projects before the big release tomorrow, the 15th, at Papertrey Ink! Tonight is the night of the online release party at the Papertrey forums - I hope to see you there!
For my last project, I hinted before at getting my pages completed for my pictures from Team Tacy 2009. One of my huge goals for myself is get my photos and scrapbook pages into albums so that they are ready for family and friends to enjoy. A while back, I saw this post over at Two Peas in a Bucket by Lisa McGarvey and was inspired to keep different size layouts all together in one album. It makes sense for me because I don't scrapbook all one size.
Here's a look at what you see when you get to the Team Tacy 2009 page. I used my page that I shared on the 11th for the beginning.
On the back of that page I added some basic facts about the race that day. I have so many pictures of the day to share and I wanted the rest of my scrapbooking to go quick and not worry about making elaborate pages for all the pictures. I picked up some photo pages that fit into a 3 ring binder at Target quite a while ago- I am not sure if they still carry something like this or not, but I bet there are other sources out there for something similar. I used these to quickly slip my photos into and added stamped pieces of cardstock to add information to pictures - here I did the mileage of each person who rode during the race.
Where ever I had a blank spot that I needed to fill I added a 4x6 stamped accent piece. You will recognize the custom cardstock from my post yesterday...
I made up some extra pennant images that I used on some other cardstock pieces to fill where I needed and also just to slip into a photo here and there.
It really came together so quickly once I had my plan and photos in the dividers where I wanted them to go.
This last 12x12 divided page protector is made by Pebbles Inc. - part of their Share & Tell line.
The pages all came together, including the beginning scrapbook page, in one evening. Have a plan, gather your supplies, print your photos, stamp/organize your elements, and assemble.
Look forward to more scrapbooking like this from me in the future! I am thrilled with what I was able to accomplish!
Thanks so much for stopping by again today!
