Feature: Scrappin' Passion!
When I scrapbook for the kids and for Steve, it is in a 12X12 format. In these books there are major events in their lives (first day of school, birthdays, Father's Day, etc) or just a layout of some of my favourite pictures of them.
I also keep family yearbooks going, in an 8 1/2 X 11 size. In these ones, there are usually 2 double layouts per month, and sometimes an extra layout in December because we have our anniversary and Christmas both in that month.
But what do I do with all the fun little family trips we take? My family lives in Victoria, so we are often on the island visiting. And in the summer there are other trips to scrap about, like camping, etc. I will put a page of these pics in our family album, and certain moments of holidays get added into each of the kids' books, but that's not enough pages! I needed a place to put several layouts of each trip, without feeling the pressure of space in a book... I think I found the perfect solution:
An 8 1/2 X 8 1/2 chipboard album from Stampin' Up! It is my new favourite size to scrapbook in!!
I covered it in Designer Paper and used my "Summer Home" Scrappin' Kit to decorate it. I am using this scrappin' kit throughout the book as well, and have completed a few pages already.
