While working with my new book
The Organized & Inspired Scrapbooker
I found that I really needed a new way to organize my photos / memorabilia that is ready to scrap. I collect the memorabilia in an accordion file by month and then when I am ready to print my photos I have everything nice and together. When my photos are delivered I sit down and do ALL of the journaling at once. I print on vellum paper because vellum matches any paper I use. I never have to worry about forgetting dates because I do the journals within a year of taking the photo . Now since changing the way I am storing each project (year) I have found that I need to keep each month in a large envelope to keep the journal, photos & memorabilia together inside my drawer.
I am not sure if I am explaining myself very well but maybe photos will help?
I think this method will also keep me scrapping because I only have 6 drawers and no room for expansion. I was going to use the “photo box” idea in the book but I love to enlarge photos and I have over sized memorabilia so photos boxes will not work for me.
I guess you could call my drawers Extra Large Photo Boxes?
I will keep you posted on how well they work.
