A Scrap Quiz - Photo album scrapbooking

You said that you scrapbook using 4 x 6 page protectors, what does that mean? How does it work?

It's actually a form of photo album scrapbooking.

Rather than 'scrap' 12 x 12 full pages, I use all different types of divided page protectors instead.

Some of them have six 4 x 6 slots, some have nine 4 x 4 slots, some have a 5 x 7 slot and four 4 x 6 slots. Google We R Memory Keepers page protectors to see the options available.

I also use Becky Higgins Project Life page protectors too. Hers have four 4 x 6 slots with four journalling card slots across the middle. Love them.

I slip my photos into the slots leaving one to decorate with the title and/or journalling.

Anyway, that's it in a nutshell at the moment - I'll show you photos of them in the future (the near future).

Meanwhile though, have a look at a video on My Craft Channel that Stacy Julian did about photo album scrapbooking (I'll link it below).

PAS is using a pre-made album to put your photos in, but it's jazzing them up slightly with a bit of colour and fun.

I love two things she said in particular.

"Let go of the obligation and the expectation that you should do something with all of your photos. Embrace the freedom to just do something with some of your photos."

aaannnddd...(my favourite)

"Mums, don't let your kids grow up to be jpegs."

Hmm, if that's not an indication of technology at the moment, I don't know what is.

Gone are the days of getting films developed.

We're in the days of intention right now. We have to be intentional about everything and that includes getting our photos off the computer and printed because it's so easy to download them and just leave them there.

All of this is if we want to, of course.

And I want to.


Because it's a good thing. Plain and simple.

Enjoy the video - she's worth listening to. It's Stacy Julian talking about Photo Freedom and photo album scrapbooking.

Bye now!
