July 2015 Digital Layouts

I've decided to switch up the way I post things.  Generally I attack each month's photos in the same manner:
  1. Decide which events have so many photos they get a full page spread.  Create them digitally and include them in my printed book at the end of the year.
  2. Make my bi-monthly calendar pages of the random leftover photos.  These I also create digitally to include in my printed book.
  3. Pull any school related or special pictures out from that month that have a special story that I want to include in the kids scrapbook albums.  I choose to create these either digitally or with paper and stickers, but I always include them in their yearly albums.  If it's a digital layout, I just print it out at 12x12.
Because of this process, I am finding that I am not posting blog entries until each month is done, and sometimes the posts have lots of layouts.  I think from now on I will post more frequently -- as I get pages don -- and will blog them in the following categories:

  1. Monthly digital 2-page layouts
  2. Monthly calendar pages
  3. Hybrid (or traditional) pages and/or digital pages

June 2015 Layouts

One.  That's how many scrapbook pages I made on my vacation to Utah.

I had grand plans to do a bunch of scrapbooking, but what was I thinking??  I attended two weddings, three family reunions, one baby shower, visited two national parks, and spent a couple days sick in bed.  I've added over 1000 photos to my camera roll, and life keeps coming! It was an exhausting but fun vacation, but I'm happy to be at home swimming in all my photos.

Let's get to it!  Here are my pages from June LAST YEAR. 




This is the one page I got done on vacation.  I am loving the digital version of Pink Paislee's Summer Solstice collection that is now available at ACDigitals.com

Book paper from Echo Park Teacher's Pet line, Puffy stickers from MAMBI, and book card, pocket, and label from old KOTM from Creating Keepsakes.

All paper and stickers are from PinkFresh's Life Noted Collection with the exception of the tooth chart, which is from Simple As That's Loose Tooth Collection.
