September & October 2018 Pocket Pages

I'm well caught up with my pocket pages for 2018. Usually at this point in the year I'm somewhat behind in the decorating process, but for a few reasons this year I'm caught up to the current week.

The first reason is that I've been enjoying making little videos about my decorating process. You can find that video collection here.

The second reason is that I wanted to get Magnus's First Year album finished. Initially I wasn't really sure if I wanted to do something, but part way through the year I realized I could easily modify my weekly spreads into an album for Magnus. By deleting some photos and moving others, I merged my layouts from 2018 into a project just about him. I figure someday in the future he might like to have a few photo books to have himself, but he's probably not going to want an entire year by year collection. So I've got his finished first year album, and I plan to continue with this edit method for the future, to create a few spreads every year just for him. I don't plan to print these photo books out until/if he shows some sort of interest in having his own collection. But that's one of the benefits of digital, you can make as many copies as you want.

Here are my pages from September and October:

I love how you use a consistent template, but then break the boundaries with different size photos, angles, and frames. It all comes together so beautifully.

Your pages are so lovely. Last Christmas my then 10 and 8 year old DGS were thrilled with their books and went for that gift first. I know Magnus will do the same!
