A few more weeks finished.
Still using the same design A page protectors but adding in those lovely half size pages (design H) when I need a few more spaces for photos.
This next page is when we started our three week holiday in the US. I limited myself to just 4 x 6 photos and in all the middle sections I added my journaling and a few filler cards, mainly from the aptly named Road trip kit.
Over the years I have used a combination of techniques for including memorabilia from these trips in my memory keeping. A couple of times I used books that held all the writing, photos and memorabilia. And this year I added almost all of them to the Project Life album.
I used two page protectors to do this, one with mostly 3 x 4 vertical pockets….
This worked well for receipts and tickets and smaller items like those wonderful Computer Museum badges.
And the other was a 6 x 6 pocket page….
You can’t really tell from the photo above but the booklets I collected all fit really well into the 6 x 6 size. Most of the pamphlet is held inside the pocket making it quite sturdy even though they stick proud a little bit. And all the ‘stuff’ is in one spot.
And the we were home….
This year more than in past years I find that I’m okay not filling every card up. Above is a great example of this. Only two of the eight 3 x 4 cards have journaling on them. The others have little bits of this and that to make them pretty. And it makes the process easier which is a bonus this year.
So keeping it simple and getting it done = happy!
