2016 Scrapbook | Ann-Marie Loves

The other day as I was in the thick of answering e-mails and working on a mundane work task, I decided to allot myself a one hour break to play with paper + photos. It was so much fun to step away from the computer for a moment and just use my hands to get my memories down.2016 Scrapbook | Ann-Marie Loves

In an hour I managed to eke out a single spread about our most recent trip to Disneyland, using a mix of Instagram photos and some of my favorite coordinating supplies.

For the left page, I resized my Instagram photo to 6.5 x 9.5″ and added a line of journaling in Photoshop. Then I printed the image on my home computer (how I print most of my photos) and embellished the page with Studio Calico alpha stickers (had to fake some of the letters using other letters, as you can probably tell – ha!), Sugar Paper ribbon that I bought on clearance at Target this past holiday season, and puffy Seven Paper stickers (I need a lifetime supply of these).

For the right page, I used a divided BasicGrey page protector to split up my photos and paper elements. Like the left page, I added a little bit of journaling to my photos in Photoshop and then embellished the spread with paper from a Kelly Purkey kit, Amy Tangerine paper, chipboard Thickers, and handwritten journaling using my all-time fave pen, the Paper Mate felt tip Flair.

Now that the pages in my book are starting to fill up, it’s inspiring me to keep going! I love a fat scrapbook.

    I am *so* behind on my album(s) for my girl. She is already 1 year, and I have only some random spreads here and there. If you ever feel called to make a “how to scrapbook for your baby” crash e-course, I am lining up to sign up:) Love what you are sharing here, as always!
