Elsie’s Grateful Journal – A Stunning Mess

Hello buddies! Over the previous yr, one of many issues I’ve gotten actually behind on is printing household images and documenting our reminiscences. I’m nonetheless considerably undecided between whether or not I want scrapbooks, photograph albums or photograph books. So within the meantime, I’m centered on small initiatives that seize this season of our lives.

As we speak, I’m partnering with Canon USA to indicate you my grateful journal. It’s a easy photograph journal that pairs brief gratitude journaling with household images. I plan to let my household add a few of their very own captions (Nova’s will likely be SO CUTE) once we have a good time Thanksgiving collectively this yr.

I used my PIXMA TS9521C printer to print a bunch of images from my telephone. To do that, I merely AirDrop the images to my laptop, dimension them down on the scale paper I’m utilizing in Photoshop, and print. My favourite printer paper is Luster as a result of it’s not too matte and never too shiny.

The very first thing I did was print and minimize out some sq. household images. That is how I print ALL my images, for any challenge. I print images like this to ship to my grandmothers too.

Subsequent, I used textured stickers so as to add a easy title to the entrance. I minimize every sticker out from the plastic to ensure the position was excellent.

Subsequent, I used acid-free washi tape to safe one photograph per web page. I love to do it to 1 aspect or the opposite (not the center) to depart an equal area for journaling.

The e-book I’m utilizing is an artwork journal (meant for watercolors) as a result of I cherished the scale and the paper weight.

Final, I did a little bit of journaling. A number of sentences per web page.

Right here’s what the completed pages appear to be. I’m excited as a result of this can be a photograph album I can 100% end and placed on our shelf. Excellent for anybody in a busy season or simply not able to decide to an enormous reminiscence conserving system. 🙂

I hope this challenge speaks to a few of you who, like me, simply must GET STARTED. xx- Elsie
