There are so many options out there when it comes to all the designs, products and fun stuff you can use in scrapbooking. If you're anything like me, you'll love it all and be tempted to buy everything!! But let's be honest...can you (will you) actually use all of it? Probably not.
I put together this post to share how I used a few repeating products + page designs to create a cohesive look to my 2021 December Daily album.
I missed out on adding these to my cart on December Daily product release day, and for a minute, the FOMO was real. But look at this!! I just made the cutest little window card with Ali's digitals + template in Canva. It took some trial and error, but best part is I got it figured it out! And I'm sharing it here with all of you. It prints as a .pdf double sided, which is awesome because it cuts down on the bulk. And I love that it's digital because I can change it up and add pattern papers to the template.
I created these using Canva, and if you're not familiar with using Canva I suggest this class to get you up to speed quickly on how to use Canva for memory keeping.
In the video below I'm going to walk you through how I set my template up for printing as a .pdf on my HP Envy Photo 7155 printer, which I've had for a few years now. I believe it's discontinued, but this printer looks to be similar.
I've followed along with Ali Edwards and her December Daily project for many years now. I only wish I had found this project sooner, when my kids were little. How I would love to have albums like this to look back on now that they are all grown up. Last year, my album was 4"x6" and I loved how simple and easy it was to create pages in this smaller size. And the photos were super easy to print with my Epson PM-400 printer using my iPhone and the Project Life app. A great combination and really all you need!
For this year I decided to stick with a smaller album again, choosing a 3" x 8" album page size. The exact album I'm using is no longer available but there are currently some other options available in her shop. Albums from this company may also be a good option for this project. You can see how I used this 4" x 8" size album for a past project here.
