Last year, I embarked on a 30-day gratitude project in album form and it turned into my favorite album of 2012. Deemed 30 Days of Thankful, the task was simple: Document one thing a day for which you are grateful and pair it with a photo. It was a very simple and personal scrapbooking project, perfect for a month in which gratitude takes center stage.
I realize Halloween is the next holiday in line, but I wanted to get you thinking about November with three new sets for 2013.
This year, my goal was to design something simple and elegant in multiple sizes.
The templates can be used for traditional scrapbooks, such as this album from Studio Calico, the Handbook.
The Handbooks have mix and match page protectors, but you can order just the size you need.
It seems like 6 x 8 is a hot size these days. Simple Stories also offers 6 x 8 faux leather albums in addition to their traditional 6 x 8 binders. FieldJournaling.com also offers binders that work with 6 x 8 pages.
Or, you could use these templates to create a book, like the ones from Artifact Uprising.
Or, just use the 6 x 4 templates and save your finished pages in a very basic snapshot-style photo album.
Today I have blog badges (in four colors) plus printable label spines (in multiple colors) designed to work with the Studio Calico Handbook binder system.
The label spines look like this:
I will be putting together a video tutorial for later in the month to walk you through the steps of using the templates. This would be a really do-able beginner project for anyone interested in using digital templates to make a scrapbook album.
In November I'll be sharing my pages weekly and encouraging anyone who'd like to link their pages as well.
I've partnered with Studio Calico to create this 3 x 3 inch wood veneer card in limited quantities. I'll share the link when they become available.
If you have any questions about the templates or the projects, please leave me a comment today and I'm happy to answer.
