This past year I have learned a lot about how I like to document, everyone documents differently, has their own way and the favorite tools! I want to share with you my process and how I go from an empty page protector to a finished album page. I’m also going to share my favorite tools to enhance and create beautiful pocket pages!
Daily, weekly or monthly ? I Document monthly, I find this way a whole lot easier than weekly.
My process is simple, Step 1 I pick my favorite photos from my phone or laptop, decide before printing where I want them to be on my layout . This helps me narrow down the quantity of photos. Once iv picked them I will then use the Becky Higgins Project life app to crop them to size.
Step 2 Once my photos have been printed I will then place them in my page protector and find filler cards and journaling cards to match. I will pick out colours that are featured in the photos and match them up to the cards I want to use.
Step 3 Normally after a few days I will come back to my layout and add writing and embellishments to the page. I do this so I can look at it with a fresh pair of eyes and have a clearer idea on how I want the page to look.
- Becky Higgins Project life app – This App has been a life saver, i use this app ever time i need to print my photos. It makes me cropping my images down to 4×6 cards a whole lot easier!
- Fuse Tool – The fuse tool was a christmas gift so I haven’t had it a long time, but it has quickly become one of my favourite thing! This is how I use it!
I use the fuse tool to make clear pockets like the one on this page! I fill them with small embellishments!
- Home printer – Since buying myself a printer in the black Friday sales it’s really helped me stay up to date with my documenting!
What is your process for documenting? What are your favouite tools?
