In January I shared my plan for organizing my Project 365 photos. I had purchased photo sleeve pages to fit my 3-ring scrapbook albums and planned to simply insert photos as I went. If I felt inspired to scrap a certain photo or event, those pages would be mixed in with the photo pages. I was okay with this until recently when I realized I wanted something more. Just a little notation spot on each page for more details about the photos and the days they represented. Plenty are “real life” and not exciting enough (nor do I have enough time!) for a full scrapbook page, but did deserve a little more than just a title on the photo.
Over the weekend, I officially started this change by rearranging the photos in the pages leaving a single pocket on each page open. Then I created a 4×6 journaling card in Photoshop:
I printed the cards on both sides of white cardstock sheets, cut them out and added stamped dates using my Making Memories date stamp:
Then began to journal details about the photos and events surrounding them. Between the photos themselves, my blog and notes about the photos on Flickr – I was quickly able to begin filling in the details of the first few weeks of the year. Here’s an example of what one of the pages looks like:
