Scrapbook Album Organization - Part II


Last week I had posted about my HUGE scrapbook album organization project and said I'd update you with some more information.  I thought it would be better to explain in a video than photos. 

I am SOOO excited that Stampin' Up! will be carrying divided sheet protectors in the new catalogue (available June 1st).  I'm anxiously awaiting June 1st so I can stock up, I've run out of the ones I was using.

The spare room is still a disaster and likelywill be for the next couple weeks.  I pretty much spend an hour organizing a pile so that eveything is chronological.  The next hour (the next day) is spent adding them to albums - this generally runs over two days (two hours) because I need to determine if I want to scrapbook the photos or add them to divided page protectors.  So it takes three days to eliminate one pile!  It's coming along slowly but surely. 

It will feel like such an accomplishment when it's all done.  It'll be easy to tell what has been scrapbooked and what needs to be scrapbooked - no more duplicating! 

The years I've been working on, as far as adding everything to albums (1999, 2000, 2001), are prior to my digital camera - when I get to the digital camera years, I will let you know how I'm taking those photos into account, so that nothing is forgotten.

One of the questions I did get was how I'm incorporating my digital layouts.  I've printed my digital layouts and am just including those as pages in the album just as I would traditional layouts.  I love mixing digital, traditional, hybrid and even page sizes in my albums.  Some of them include 8-1/2"x11" layouts that I created.  The 8-1/2"x11" album inserts are also great for the kids certificates that they've received and as you saw in the school album, for their report cards.  I love it!

Anyway, if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment, I'd be happy to answer them.

Thanks for stopping by!

Great job, Sherry! You are so inspiring !

I can't wait until you are able to tell us about your digital photo years. I am not sure how I will choose what photos to keep and which to go and how to not miss a thing.

Its hard to part with photos even if there are 152 pictures from the same day of the same people doing the same things.
