A Month in Review

I love the Albums Made Easy system. It makes for great work with quick scrapbooking, which is very helpful for all of the busy days we seem to have anymore. I love using the Albums Made Easy system to do a monthly review of events, activities, etc. Things that are maybe more everyday, that I might not spend the time to do a full 12×12 layout on. That’s why I love this system, I can still get crafty and creative, but quickly document moments that otherwise would get left behind. This is what I created as my August month in review.

I prefer to keep my spreads more on the flat side, I add in things like brads, wood veneer, twine, to get the texture and dimension that I love, but as a general rule, I try not to over embellish. One of my favorite ways to embellish on these spreads, is to cut apart those journaling cards, and use bits and pieces as accents, layers. I also love to fussy cut around banners, and tuck things under them. As you can see in these photos. Its a great way to add interest and give the illusion on there being more dimension than there actually is.

Try scrapbooking  a month in review to see how fun and easy it is.
