Last night I finished filling up my ‘Summer Twenty-Eleven’ mini-book. I purchased this book from Elise Joy Blaha on her Etsy shop. It’s a 4×6″ size, and I left it on my work desk to add to, little by little. And as you can see, I added a lot, and it got big! But that was half the fun of it. The empty book came with so many cool papers in pretty colors and designs, and it’s not a book you fill all at once; rather it’s a journal that you fill as you go along with your life. I found it so much easier to do this kind of project instead of having dozens of photos in front of me, an empty book, and not enough time. It really is a journal in the sense that it’s all about the everyday happenings in your life in which you are encouraged to add photos and some cute stuff here and there. You don’t even have to be a scrapbooker to enjoy filling a book like this, because there is nothing you shouldn’t do with it, and it comes as a blank canvas with only your imagination as the guide to give it life. Since mine has so many pages, I didn’t want to tackle the daunting task of photographing it, so I thought I would try something different and [gasp!] make a video to show what I did. I like looking at other scrapper’s videos of how they create things, and especially the final, completed project.
Thanks for stopping by; I’ll be back later!
