Happy first release of 2020, I hope you're as excited about the new products as I am! I've just finished two books that were started towards the end of last year and was glad to get them documented right away.
I'm using a 6x8 pocket album for this year's books and as usual I've got a formula so that I can keep this a manageable project. While I gathered my supplies and worked through my thoughts, it hit me to create bookmarks to act as dividers for each month. Once I had it stamped out, everything else fell into place.
My stack to be read is growing again and so it was a great way to start my album. Even though I have a typewriter that I enjoy using, one of my shortcuts for this project is to type my journaling on the computer and then add it on top of the journaling cards. Alternatively, I could use the digital cards, but I do like my layers.
Some additional notes about how I'm planning to have my album come together:
I created several journaling cards with the Check It Out stamp and will be able to add a quick review along with the dates I started and finished the book.
I'm using photos printed on regular photo paper as well as an Instax printer. For the above Instax, I wanted it to be floating to go along with the feel of the book and so I stapled it to a piece of transparency.
I'm also planning on adding quotes and other items possibly outside of pockets to add interest to my overall album.
