Getting back into it with a fun 6×6 accordian album

Wow. It’s been a long time since I’ve been here. Holidays, new year, blah, blah, blah. No real excuse other than being a bit lazy (the winter always does that to me), and not having much time to be creative. But in the past few weeks, I have eked out a few crafty moments for myself, and I’ll be sharing my recent projects over three posts.

I think I’ve mentioned it here before, but I’ll say it again: I’m intimated by the thought of taking on the responsibility of a 12×12 scrapbooking project. It completely overwhelms me! I went to my very first crop a few weeks ago, and I was in the presence of some serious scrappers. I was known as the “newbie,” and boy, did it feel like it. These women were churning out page after page for their full-sized albums, and there I was, working on my (awesome, small, and totally finish-able!) Close to My Heart 6×6 accordian album.

For my 6×6 project, I focused on all the fun things my son has done/will do this winter, hence its title, “Season of Adventure.” And since some of those fun things haven’t happened yet, I pre-made a few layouts that I can simply add a photo to when the time comes!
