1. Choose a week that ends with a Sunday where you will be at home, with no commitments, to complete the scrapbook before you entirely forget what happened.
2. Don't order photos by mail (even if it's a really good deal). Get them from Costco in an hour.
So the busy schedule, slow-to-arrive photos and our summer vacation plans meant that the week I recorded in late May wasn't put into a book until last week. Still, I'm glad to have it done and on the shelf. Better luck in 2015 with recording the details.
Also, I ran out of the original packet of photo pockets I purchased the first year so switched over to Project Life inserts and albums. I was initially resistant to using these supplies but now I don't know why. It was SO convenient. I bought a packet of the "Kraft" edition inserts (cause it was 50% off and I liked the look) and I'll have inserts (and space in the book) for at LEAST 4 more years of WITL so it'll definitely save money and hassle and shelf space in the long run. I wasn't planning to use so many of the generic inserts but I forgot so much detail they were great for filling space.
After taking these album photos I must admit to being very impressed with those bloggers who share their project life albums each week. It's HARD to take a decent photo of photos in those plastic pockets. Sorry these are so bad!
