Hello and Thank you for stopping by.

It is almost the New Year 2011. This is the time of year I get busy organizing for Scrapbooking and photo albums.

Last year I read an idea to keep a current year's scrapbook album for 2010. How? Using a Picfolio album. It is a slide in album. The idea is to work on it once per month and actually have a photo album for the current year. Then, at the end of the year, use it to create your "real" keepsake album.

The advantages of this method:

1) I can keep a Picfolio album up to date working on it 4-5 hours per month.

2) The family looooved! Having a current photo album. Usually I wait till the next year to make the scrapbook.

3) It trained me to take vertical and horizontal photographs (I stopped doing this).

4) I know the photographs that will print the best. I really can't tell just looking at the screen.

5) My goal was to make it look "nice" but not "wow" because it is a temporary album, I'm using it for 1 year. Less stress and fast.

6) The album itself is good quality and looks nice to show family and friends throughout the year.

7) Great way to use the remaining pieces of paper kits, so decoration costs are minimal.

The issues I encountered:

1) In a slide album, the pieces are not glued in. The boys quickly learned they could get a better look by pulling pieces OUT of the album. Lucky for me, they are old enough now.

2) I thought I could use 1 Picfolio album for the year. You really need 1 for every album you are trying to replace. I usually take 2 albums worth of pictures per year, so I needed 2 albums.

3) Missing 2 months of monthly activity, I forgot to keep up. It is best to make it a 1 night a month project and stick with it.

Would I do it again? Yes I plan to. I know to have a 2nd album by May so I don't lose my momentum. I don't know if I'll re use the 2010 albums right away or rotate 4 total albums (2 for each year, covering a 2 year span.)

Have a wonderful holiday season!
