Welcome to Not-My-Typical-12x12 Week here at Daily Life - Bits & Pieces. Each day this week I'll be sharing a layout that is not my traditional 12x12 layout. These layouts will be various sizes and formats. The six layouts I'll be sharing do have one thing in common - they all showcase photos/stories/memories from 2007. I decided it was time to clean out the remaining photos from my 2007 storage binder, and with these completed layouts I'm almost there (just a few more to go).
This first layout is 8x8 in size and will be the introduction page in my 2007 album. Yes, that's right, I have a chronological album for 2007. This is a little change from the Library of Memories system and my Category Albums. After giving it a lot of thought and taking Shimelle's Cover to Cover class, I have made some adjustments/ updates to how and where I store my layouts. However, that's a post for another day . . . so back to my 8x8 layout.
I like the simplicity of this layout with matted square punched photos, a strip of ribbon, a strip of washi tape, and some chipboard numbers and accents.The reason I chose to do a 8x8 layout for this introduction page is very simple - the second layout in the album (the one that will go in the page protector behind this one) is an 8x8 that I created some time back.
Do you have an album (or albums) for each year? Or do you store your layouts by category? Or a combination of both?
