Here is a sneak peak into the book I just finished up for 2011.
This is what it ends up looking like, with just two hole punches. I use all types of "scraps" that I collect all year long. I have a ziplock bag that I keep and any time I visit somewhere cool or just end up with random flyers, postcards, tickets, maps, etc... I just throw them in the bag for later. It's easy!
At the start of the album, I did a little summary of the year. Big things we did, fun we had, a note to the viewer about our year.
Wedding invitations from dear friends...
It's so easy to put together, just two hole punches and bingo! Most of the memorabilia items I collected during the year do the job of giving it the scrapbook feel, so really just the hole punching and collecting is most of the work. I added some doodling, painting and color here and there and spent the largest chunk of decorating on the cover and back pages.
This method is great fun and I actually look forward to putting together this next year. With a traditional scrapbook the task seems daunting, this one is far less intimidating.. at least for me :)
(psst... the beginning of the year is a great time to start collecting! I just put the random things in a ziploc bag and put it together when I'm feeling inspired!)
