Sometimes a Project Life album capturing the whole year can become overwhelming to someone venturing out into the scrapbooking world. I found Kelly Purkey’s Mini album a great inspiration to capture memories from her recent trip. The 4 x 4 album is the perfect size and you can use your instagram photos! SCORE! From Kelly…
I’d saved a ton of memorabilia from my trip last year with Barb and it has all just been waiting to get put into an album. I picked up one of the new WeRMemory Keepers 4×4 albums and couldn’t wait to use it. When Lori from Gossamer Blue sent me the new On My Desk line, I was inspired to get creating! I also mixed inSecond City stickers from my BasicGrey product line along with the stamps from my Travelogue kit.
This was my first time with the 4×4 size and I think I’m addicted now. I like that you can print out 4×4 photos for some of the album pages and it doesn’t feel like they need to be embellished. Here’s a look at my album (sorry, it’s a lot of photos being shared!):
As you can see, I saved a ton of stuff from the trip. Business cards, menus, even the box from Voodoo Doughnuts. I had a huge pile of things to go through and everything that didn’t get put into the album got thrown away. Whew. It felt good to get rid of stuff that I had just held onto.
One thing about the album is that all these pages definitely didn’t fill up the album. It’s probably only about half way full, I could fit a lot more into there. It makes me tempted to pull these pages out and make a simple cover with rings, then use the album for another topic that will fill it up more. Has anyone else used one of the 4×4 albums? How do you feel about the size?
