Love This
Hello friends! Anya is here today and I am so happy to share a layout with you I recently created using the The Little Things collection. I must admit, at the beginning of the summer I was certain there would be so much time for scrapbooking and my plans for memory keeping projects were huge! But this summer happened to be a lot busier than expected, and I didn't get anywhere near as much done as I wanted to. Therefore I am extra happy every time I get another layout done!
Today's layout is 8.5x11” and this is my go-to format whenever I create for myself. I have more than ten albums filled with scrapbooked memories in this size and my dream is to keep adding to that collection.
I know we all can be very busy, and sometimes feel like we don't have enough time for scrapbooking.  But knowing how another finished page makes me feel, here are a few things I remind myself, which help me get those layouts done.
  1. Starting a new layout is usually the hardest step. As soon as you get it started, chances are you will find time to finish it!
  2. Don't overthink on design or embellishments you want to use. There will always be another layout to use that idea or product on!
  3. Simple layout with a precious photo and a little story is always better than a perfect layout in your plans or TO DO list!
  4. Don't save your favorite products for a very special project – use them now. There will always be more products we accumulate!
  5. Don't overthink on the importance of a story you are trying to tell. Every one of them, no matter how small, is what our lives are made of.
  6. There are so many different formats for memory keeping today. Pick the one that fits your story at the moment and get it scrapped.
  7. Grab what inspires you today. Enjoy the process. Share your results.
Thank you for visiting the Simple Stories blog today and I hope you will stop by again soon for more inspiration!
