I’m still going strong with my family PL album. I did skip ahead to some weeks for creative team assignments but I’m slowly going back to weeks that I missed, like this one from back in March.
In order to stay on top of my PL I have opted for a minimalist design and approach to my memory keeping. Incorporating stamps is also one of my favorite technique, especially when I can stamp directly on my pictures. I have learned that this works best on matte or semi-gloss pictures.
Creating cohesive spread is also important to me. For this spread I repeated the alpha stamp and stars. I also kept a neutral color palette with teal and yellow accents.
I love using white journaling cards with crisp and clean designs. Love the minimalist design they bring to a spread, especially when my pictures are busy.
Love how the teal card coordinates perfectly with my daughter’s panda shirt. This played a big part of my design process.
As you can see my spread is rather simple but I have learned that when I need to get caught up or produce multiple spreads simple is best.
