Early Pages In The Summer Of Doing Album

I thought it was high time I shared some of my scrapping passion.  These photos are the first time I have ever photographed my work.- another learning curve in the works on how best to do.  Any suggestions most graciously  received - I took the inserts/photos out of the plastic pockets - oh the glare, the glare!

I normally work in 12X12" albums so this Simple Stories 6X8" pocket style album should be quick, easy and lots of fun.  

This is the 2015 Summer of Doing  album cover. Each month will have a chapter page which will include a calendar insert card to record the dates of the adventures and the everyday things.  This year I started with the month of May, since in Canadian terms of summer, the Victoria Day Long Weekend (or as some call it the 2 4 weekend) is what we call the first long weekend of the summer. 





This is a chapter divider for all the photos of the adventures from Exploring Wellington County.  I am working on a chapter page for the SPSH photos.







The next two photos are of some of the pages I have already done for the album.  I found online a template for postcards which I am going to use throughout this album for the printing of poems and quotes I want to include.  The postcard template is to remind me that it was during this Summer of Doing, I created my blog, Patio Postcards.





 

The banner or bunting washi tape I found at Michael's Craft Store - my plan is to use it for most if not all the journal cards.  Yes those are my painted toes drying while I enjoyed a mug of tea on the patio. 


So that's the start of the Summer Of Doing Manifesto Album.

  1. As you know I'm not a scrapper but I like sticking my nose into other people's albums! Very nice ideas/sentiments in yours and I do like the colour scheme. (Oh, and ask me out of context whose feet those are, I'd guess Mary-Lou every time! Why? The mug!!!)

    Look forward to seeing it develop.

    1. The turquoise blue of the album reminds me of summer skies. My scrapping style is very simple although every once in a while I surprise myself with embellished pages. Yes the cat mug gives me away, other tell tale signs would be pink and/or floral mugs & teacups. Oh yes I have since corrected the spelling error on the postcard ...
