Daily scrapbooking is such a fun concept, but sometimes really tricky to pull off. Each layout takes a lot of time and planning. That's why I LOVE the Echo Park Photo Freedom collections! Everything is ready for you. You just need to add your photos and journaling. This "Happy Go Lucky" collection is full of bright cheerful colors, and I love all the fun sayings on the cards. I added in some vellum to do some of my journaling on. I like how it adds a touch of softness as well to the layout. I like my pages to be somewhat flat, not a lot of 3D elements; but don't forget to layer (stickers on stickers, gems, vellum, staples, tabs, stamping, etc.).
* I have a notebook that I have sketched out each week's spread. When I'm done with the week, I go through my photos, pick out the ones that best represent the week and I get them printed. I have it written on the sketch where each photo goes, but that's about it.
* Remember: there are days where you might not get a photo, or you don't have much to say about what happened that day. I like to print the weather forecast from my iphone or add in a saying card. There are some easy things to do even when you forget.
* Try to write down some things that happened that week. I don't get to some of my spreads until weeks afterwards and then I have to struggle to remember what happened.
* Have fun! This is the coolest way I've done journaling so far, and I've done a lot of journaling. I try to keep in mind how cool this album will be at the end of the year and how much my family will appreciate it.
