Today I want to share my new scrapbooking system. So, I’ve been scrapbooking for over 10 years now. I have hundreds of layouts stored very nicely in Iris boxes. I am running out of room. 😯 Plus, after so many years, I am a little bored with filling up 12X12 pages. And, it takes a lot of supplies to create those layouts. So, after being inspired by several people on YouTube and Instagram, I decided to make a change.
I bought a gorgeous Webster’s Pages Platinum Traveler’s Notebook last spring, and I didn’t know what to do with it. I wanted to plan with it, but that didn’t work for me. I tried making random lists in the books, but that felt like a waste. So, upon seeing others using the books as mini scrapbooks, with the smaller size for spreads, I wanted to try it out! It has been working great for me so far. I use one book as a yearly diary for myself, one book is for the year, and one is for random layouts or to record memories from past years. I don’t know how quickly I will fill a book up, so I don’t know how many books it will take to complete a year. I am hoping maybe to fill one up in four months, so I would need four books a year.
This system is much more manageable than the huge layouts! They are tucked away in a lovely book that I can pull out anytime. I think I’ll like this change! I can still make some regular layouts throughout the year, but the TN system is less burdensome and intimidating. If you’re just getting started with scrapbooking, I suggest trying this system out!
Would you/do you use this kind of system for memory keeping? Let me know in the comments!
