A month of scrapbooking – day 30!!!!!

Well here we are at the end of my personal challenge to scrapbook each day for 30 days.

I’m so happy I was able to meet this goal for myself.  It has totally reinforced to me how much I adore this “hobby”, which is actually so much more than a fun paper craft activity to me!  I don’t think you can put a value on preserving your memories.  It shows you how very lucky you are as all of your blessings are right there in front of you.  It is a reminder of the beauty around to anyone who sees your creations.  The books are the most important keepsake in the years to come.

Moving forward I would now like to make sure I complete at least a page a week.  I would also like to get better progress of my basic “month per page” style layouts that I do digitally.

Speaking of digital scrapbooking, the way I do this is through the app “Project Life by Becky Higgins”.  It is so simple to use and it means that you get all those photos off your phone and into a more interactive meaningful format.  I will be sure to spend more time talking about this.

There is also the physical format of Project Life that I have used a lot for my daughters.  For my twins I made them each an album when they turned 13, it was a bit of a love album to nurture them through the teenage years.  For my eldest child I made an album for her 18th birthday of “18 things we love about you”.  Then there was space at the back for her friends and our family to write messages to her.

Today I have been organising an album and kit that will be placed out at a funeral.  I had seen this done by one of Becky Higgin’s followers and I have done it previously.  People can choose to write a message or a memory onto one of the cards.  They then all get put into the album along with photos and any other mementos and are there to comfort the family left behind.

Thanks for coming along for the past month.

If you want to get some more consistent scrapbooking done I’m interested in running scrap-nights to support you.  Let’s talk!
