family traditions | the album

In my Studio move and organization, I have found quite a few forgotten projects that need attention. One of those is the Traditions Album and after browsing through it again I can't believe that I let a good idea like this one get by me without continuing. After some thought, I realized that this easy style of storytelling was too good to limit to just holiday traditions. 



It all started while looking for something else all together. But, I printed this out last night and immediately began looking for a paper scrap to add to the side of the page and began writing. 


Time elapsed was probably about 5 minutes. It took a whole lot longer to write this blog post than it did to capture a memory with a photo of my Sweetie and one of his beloved vintage International Harvester Scout's.

DESIGN TIP  |  Prefer more embellishments on your layouts? Position your letter stickers over your patterned paper strip and add some word stickers directly on your photo. If you don't care to have the years at the bottom of the page and prefer to add a date elsewhere, you could add patterned paper there and save the  other spot for embellishments.

Why don't you print a few page templates of your own and have them ready for those times when there are only minutes in your schedule to create, but you  have a great story to capture.
