Sometimes, the hardest part about scrapbooking is actually finding the time to do it.
So a couple of years back, in 2009, I embarked on a project to complete 52 projects in a year – one for every day of the week. It didn’t matter if I strictly did one layout a week, or if I made a couple within the week and added them to the number. And it was okay if I missed a week because I could always “catch up” at a later date. But regardless of what I did, whether a layout, mini album, or altered project, they had to be something to add to my stash of creative projects. I found that this was an amazing way to motivate myself to take some time out each week, amidst my busy schedule, to scrap. By setting aside 15 to 30 minutes a day to plan, design, and put a project together, I was able to complete a project by the end of the week. So I’ve been keeping that up this year, and it’s been going really well.
We’re currently into week 46, and I’m up to 50 projects!
Project 49: Keepsakes
I made a pocket behind the tag to keep extra photos!
Project 50: 1,2,3
I seriously love the color combination on this one.
Another pocket behind the tags for my extra photos! (:
I’m looking forward to more projects in 2012!
