This week I used a mixture of old Feed Your Craft cards, and old Ali Edwards cards. I love that both Elise (Feed Your Craft) and Ali create intentional products to help you tell a variety of authentic stories. I also love that they compliment each other - granted I have a ton of both, so I dig until I find pieces that fit together in a spread.
Title cards for me, are literally just a place to put the dates. Sometimes they're just a pattern with a label and the date and other times they're the marketing cards from the Story Kits (which have a handwritten quote on them) and the date.
This year I've learned to love list journaling. Like the currently card. It's just a great way to get a bunch of little stories into the spread without taking up a lot of space, and generally those little stories don't need more than one sentence to tell them.
It's reaching the point where photos of Gracie are almost like filler cards. Sometimes I get to the end of the week and I have a dozen photos of her being adorable on my phone, and I try to keep them from filling every single pocket. This was also the week I started working on my December Daily album cover - below this post you'll see the first 5 days and the beautiful cover I made.
I'm trying to be more aware of the photos I take each week, and to make notes about some of the smaller stories I want to include. I want to take more photos, and be more intentional in taking them. We'll see how that goes this year.
