Catching Up on Photos

I’ve been a busy trying to catch up on my photo albums recently. As I said before, I decided to do Pocket Scrapping for my photos from the beginning of 2011, and I’m well on my way to being up to date with them.  I thought I’d share some of the quick pages I’ve been making – this is about documenting photos and stories and less worrying about the art (although they still need to look good!).

A week’s holiday in Queenstown – using a mixture of papers, I printed out the logos of some of the places to add to the journaling.

We got a new BBQ, and as I had a lot of photos I put the title and date down the strip on the side.

Baking with my nephew – these pages are a combination of cream cardstock and rolling pin paper.  Then an Imagine If… Felt Gingerbreadman.


1502A Pocket Scrapping 2For this Luging layout, we had purchased the digital downloads of the photos from Skyline, and it came in branded paper bag, which I cut out to create the title.  The date is on the tickets.

1502A Pocket Scrapping 4When we were in Australia, I visited every scrapbook shop I could find! And I found this Queensland paper, and Caloundra word, so I cut the paper up to fit into the page protector, then found some other papers that co-ordinated with it, and cut the logos out of some brochures I had brought back with us.  Then out came one of my many Dymos, and labelled all the pictures (I’ve used my Dymos quite a bit while catching up on my photos).

1502A Pocket Scrapping 1The last one I have to share with you – Omaka Aviation Centre, I used a photo I took as the title for this, and felt it didn’t need a lot of other explanation.  For the background I had a great KaiserCraft transparency with old planes, so I put white cardstock behind and used this – I love the look.

Here is a selection of what I’ve been up to, I hope it inspires you some!
