One of my 2014 intentions is to completely finish my 2012 and 2013 albums. They are mostly done but they definitely need some finishing touches. While going back, I have noticed that there are some weeks where all I have to "show" for it are pictures of food and tweets. Our current lifestyle really does not need weekly documentation. As a result, I think I am going to switch gears to a monthly/big events based album for now. It makes more sense for our life right now.
This year's album is the Becky Higgins/American Crafts Grey Faux Leather 12x12 album. To be honest, I only bought these because they were on sale. In 2012, I used the signature black album. I love that style. By Christmas 2012, they were phased out in black, so my Mother in Law purchased them in white for 2013. I hate the white version because they got so dirty just from being looked through from the beginning of the year. I am hoping grey will be a better alternative.
Details: The look of this opening page is similar to all my others with a title card in the upper left hand corner with the dates covered by this album, a 3x4 photo of each of us, and a photo of us together. I also included our initial cards and a card detailing where we are at the beginning of the year. The title card came from a Birchbox. The text on the other 3 insert cards were printed here at home. The patterns were from a WRMK booklet, and the gridded 4x6 was a leftover Studio Calico 4x6.
Tools and supplies:
