We’re already to part four of Briar’s scrapbook and I am still loving the process. I made this particular page using Dear Lizzy products and it was a fun way to utilize some of my favorite photos from the past several months in a single layout.
This page incorporated some of my favorite divided page protector techniques: placing embellishments on the top of the plastic and splitting the same photo up amongst multiple pockets. It always feels like a bit of a puzzle putting everything in it’s place!
I’ve been asked about how I print my photos and here’s my simple answer: I do what works best with the resources I have on hand. Since we moved in January, I haven’t gotten around to replacing the cartridges in my home printer (I have no idea why?), so I just order prints from Target instead. There are pros and cons to both options, of course. With a home printer, I can customize the size of my photos based on my project with a few simple clicks in Photoshop, however, it always takes way longer than I anticipate it will and it uses up a ton of ink. By printing straight to Target, I don’t get to customize the sizes (well, aside from 4 x 6″) and I have to pay every time I need prints, but it’s so nice to have a huge stack of photos to pull from when I sit down to work on this album each week.
