Like most vacation days, we took a lot of pictures that day.
So many memories crammed into one afternoon.
The island was so beautiful, how could we not?
But when I go back and look at all the beautiful photos, I feel overwhelmed.
These are the photos that I never want to scrapbook.
It’s a daunting task. But I figured it out.
At least, what works for me.
Maybe it will work for you too.
I choose ONE photo that I love and print it in oversize.
I write some journaling about the whole day in Microsoft Word or Adobe Photoshop. What I am saying is ‘just write’. Write it all down. All in one swoop. In this project, I did the journaling right on the page. But other times I’ll put in on a pocket journal card or if it’s too long, it will be its own insert.
Now you’ve started.
You’ve got an oversized photo and your story.
All the other photos go in pocket pages. I add a memory card to fill in holes.
There’s very little embellishing but it helps me get through a large project quickly.
And guess what?
I always love it. Keep in mind you make it work for you. So if you love 2 large photos then print two large photos and put them back to back. If you have too many other photos than going back to back in a pocket page. If you have a wonky size photo then print it the way you want it and forget the page protector – throw it in your album as is.
Hope my process can help you get through some of your large pile of photos.
Have a wonderful day!
