When You Need a Fresh Start

Hi it’s Lisa with you today.

I’ve been needing to rethink how I document. I feel it’s time for a change. I love my traditional 12×12 scrapbooking, but I also love the smaller scale Project Life style of scrapbooking. I tend to find that when documenting for my Project Life Album I document the more of the every day stuff which I like. The problem is, I’ve neglected to keep it up. You can see my video here where I show you my 12×12 album and then how I change to the smaller 8×8 to start a fresh.

I hadn’t realised until I was filming this video that it’s been 2 years since I created for my Project Life Album. I think about it so often and want to create for it, but it just isn’t happening and that makes me sad as it’s fun to look back on. So rather than just give up, I’ve decided to rethink it and start a fresh but on a smaller scale. I’m wondering if that will feel more manageable??   I really hope so.

I really like that by documenting at the end of the month, you can use your kit leftovers. I’ve created 4 pages today in one sitting all using my April kit scraps. I used mostly my DITL kit.

I’ve been doing a lot of Spring Cleaning and decluttering this month so I wanted to record that. I cut down some of my DITL journal cards to fit my pockets.

We’ve had some really good achievements this month that needed documenting. It’s been a busy month.

This journal card with the black circular scribbles was just printed in black, so I took some pens and scribbled around and around so that the colours matched my page. It fits so much better now.

I feel a real sense of relief that I’ve started this everyday documenting again. I’m so happy that I’ve given this some thought and hopefully my issues are now solved and I can keep it up once again. I would love to go back and document the months I have missed. I keep all my photos neatly filed, so it would be good.

And just as I was clearing away my kit and popping all the bits back in the DITL kit bag, I decided to use a couple of the stickers to personalised this Simple Stories Snap Album.

Thank you for joining me today.

How do you scrap/document the everyday stuff?

What works best for you?
