My New Process

I mentioned before that I keep my collections of paper (either by theme or by manufacturer line) stored in 12x12 plastic bags. So now as I make layouts for Benjamin's book, I'm going to use up the rest of that bag, or put the remainder of the bag into my bags for embellishments or general scraps. That way I'll have more finished layouts for which I can then print pictures. It's easy to make another layout as long as I have all the coordinating stuff out. It just means I'm less productive at actually getting pages done for Benjamin's book. But I have an entire year before he gets home from Switzerland, so no rush. :)

So I made this one:

And then used up the rest of this Making Memories line I'd been saving.

And this one. This is one of my favorite patterned papers of all time, so I bought a whole bunch of it. These are my last two sheets (whew...) and I had these chipboard letters that match, so out of the seven that were left, I tried to make a word and came up with this title. :) Funny how the theme for a page can come together.

And one more. The words are all from a rub-on sheet I bought on clearance...cute, hey?

Then I switched over to this line from Junkitz (miss you, Junkitz!) and went back to Benjamin's next season of track.

And a bonus page, and this line is gone!

I think if I start doing what you do, with making pages with what's left (because I save every little scrap!!) I'll be doing okay!
