However there are some things that I really like and go back to again and again so I've made a list of those to see if I can use them to create flow...
- At least 3 PPs
- Mini-alpha stickers
- A tab of some kind
- Hand written journalling
- Date stamp
So the date stamp I've got is new, the v cute Dear Lizzy Neopolitan roller stamp, but it will make LO sorting much easier if I can use it on every LO.
With these in mind I then got creating. Shimelle included a starting point in this post about this month's ten things. Did you spot it? Well my version of this starting point was this:
Using EP's Time and Seasons PPs, a range I loved and am now using up the last scraps of. The washi tape was from the Makery in Bath - will definitely be going back for some more at some point.
This was my final LO, including all the elements I listed above.
After I photographed it I merrily went to put it straight away in to my holiday 2011 album - uh oh - I hadn't sorted that album during the grand sort out, thinking it was fine - however while the LOs did all relate to our holidays last year (apart from one which I've now taken out), they were a complete mess, had mixed two holidays up, didn't tell the story... So I sorted them out, have found some gaps and thought while I was there to go through other LOs in that album, fine any made from the same PPs and add some elements to creat that flow.
This was the first I found, and the only thing I needed to added was the mini-alphas and a date stamp.
And this was the second, again I just added some mini-alphas and a date stamp.
I still have the rest of the LOs in the album to go back to, but this is a start and I'm already happier with it as a whole.
