Single event albums or large yearly...what do you use?

Posted by zgardennut (My Page) on

I have an album for each of my children and it pretty much goes in chronological order but I am thinking of switching to event albums. Maybe smaller than 12 x 12. It feels like I am never finished and the albums don't hold too many refill packs anymore.

What do you do??

I take pictures all year long, but not enough of one event to fill a whole album (except for vacations we go on) so I just do one large yearly book.

I just had a baby though so I'll do a special book dedicated to him using all the random pictures I take of him, but I'll still do my regular yearly album with pictures of him at different events throught the year.

RE: Single event albums or large yearly...what do you use?

I have albums for each of my kids and grandkids but most of their photos are in photo boxes. As I scrap, I add them to the albums. I like to use 3 ring binders so I don't have to scrap in order but can put them in order in their albums. (If you can follow that run-on sentence!) For vacations and special events I create theme albums. Our Alaskan cruise is 4 albums long!! There is no right or wrong way to scrap so go and follow your heart.

I usually have one large yearly album except for special vacations (Disney world, or Cruise, etc). Then I usually devote an album, sometimes a smaller one like 8" x 8" for that particular vacation. The size of the album depends on the volume of pictures I've taken. Like Sue said, there is no right or wrong way to scrap.
