Hey there! Happy Monday!
How has your summer been going? Making a ton of memories?
And I’m using the new Heidi Swapp Adventure Scavenger Album to document them!
You may remember seeing these albums used to record a vacation or special event.
In fact, my girl, Jamie Pate, shared this exact album just last Friday. She and her family took an adventure-filled trip earlier this summer and she used her album to remember each of the fantastic memories that were made during that time.
Aren’t those albums just gorgeous? And both are filled with a ton of inspiration and information on just how to fill them.
Well, I’m using mine in just a slightly different way.
Instead of documenting one trip, I’m documenting our entire summer.
Every few days, I go through my phone and find photos that fit with the prompts included in the album…and then I tell that story.
It’s fun, easy & and it’s a great way to document this season!
Wanna take a look at what I have so far?
I made a promise to myself earlier in the year that, from now on, my documenting would be a little more simple…a little more do-able.
I’ve found that doing this has really made things less overwhelming for me…and I love it.
You’ll see that, on most of my pages, I’ve added an Instax photo, a quick embellishment or two, and the photo’s story…
…and that’s it.
I’m not concerned with getting things into chronological order. I’m simply finding photos that fit the prompt on the page…
…and I really love the way it’s turning out.
Including a few of my favorite embellishments from a number of Heidi’s current lines, including Storyline & Stationery helps, too…
I’ve also added a number of hand-drawn elements to help tell my story. This is my favorite new way to decorate. All I need is a pen, a few markers and something to trace a circle with.
I just love what these elements add to my pages.
And I love that I’m able to complete each page quickly & easily.
We’re halfway through summer…and I’m halfway through my album. Seems as though things are working out just perfectly…(smile).
Pick up one of these new Scavenger Albums at your local Michaels, grab some pens & markers, a few of the new Instax filler cards & your printer, and start getting those summer-stories told!
