What is a quick and easy way to capture your life right now? Yes, you could take a photo, but what about creating a “currently” spread? “Currently” pages are designed to be a snapshot of you at a given moment to including what you are eating, drinking, reading, watching, listening to, loving, creating, thinking about, feeling, or more. If you tend to document the bigger moments, consider trying this style out. You will be amazed at how much a “Currently” page can instantly tell you what was going on in a certain season of life.
“Currently” spreads are a perfect photo-less form of documenting.
“How about a photo-less layout? I suppose one could call it listing— but let’s make it pretty! I wanted to list all of the things I’m currently loving and doing right now as we transition into Fall. I started out by spelling out my title with the gorgeous deep burgundy puffy stickers from the Umber & Gold Modern Memory Keeping Kit and then numbered my journaling using number stickers from the Umber & Gold Memory Keeping Sticker Kit.
I typed out all the things I’m loving like dark chocolate and chrysanthemums and then paired my list with a gorgeous quote page in the Simple Dori from the Umber & Gold Traveler’s Notebook Memory Keeping Kit.
I decided to dress up the quote page a bit even though it was gorgeous all on its own. I added some gold and brown splatters as well as some asterisks from the puffy alpha sticker sheet. By the time I was done, I realized I had no place for a current photo! While this may be commonplace for some, it is definitely out of the ordinary for me! But guess what? I absolutely love it and it’s totally okay that I don’t have a photo.
Do you ever make photo-less scrapbook layouts? I hope I inspired you to give it a try— you may be surprised by how much you love the result!”
For Odessa, life is currently all about coziness!
