This summer, my family and I went on an adventure to the town of Brigus in the province of Newfoundland. Like many coastal Newfoundland towns, its full of beauty and rich with quirks. Usually that translates to a lot of photos being taken. In the past when I sat down to scrapbook events where I took a lot of photos, I would get overwhelmed. Too many photos equals too big a job for this busy mom of three. However, recently I began tackling days and events like this by selecting my favourite photo and printing it oversized. Then using a pocket page or sometimes using a grid format on a traditional page to document the remaining photos. This small change helped me look at this “big project” to a nice and manageable project.
In this layout, you can see that I selected an oversized photo of a tunnel showing my husband and daughter inside a tunnel. The negative space, even dark, allowed for a title or some journaling. On the other side, I used similar Vicki Boutin chipboard embellishments to keep the same style from one page to another.
Keep documenting those memories, big and small.
Try this “rule of thumb” as you document those photo heavy days during the holiday.
And because, it’s the holiday season from my family to yours, stay safe and hopeful. Happy Holidays! Until next month,
St. John’s, Newfoundland Labrador
