Project Life | Revisiting Those Early Years | Four Into Two

In January of this year, I planned a revamp of The Boy Child’s scrapbooks. In particular, the baby and toddler years. As 2020 nears its end, I have finished revamping years 2007-2011. Five years of The Boy Child’s life now sitting comfortably in two albums, as opposed to four overly-full albums.

Some of the layouts were redone completely, some I chose to leave as they were, some became pocket pages and some I chose to add companion pages to.

In this school double spread, the pocket page-style is new and it’s sister page is from 2011, which I trimmed and mounted on white cardstock.

The original spread from 2011 featured a 7×5 photo, a few strips of patterned paper and two embellishments. The new version is virtually all in the bottom third.

This has been such a fun project to undertake this year and I’m so glad I decided to take it on. 🙂

  1. Your new albums will be a wonderful resource for the family, full of variety. I like that you kept some of the old layouts too. I’m not sure I would have the energy to redo any of mine!

    1. That’s what I ended up thinking … too much time, energy and expense in redoing all the past layouts … and there are plenty that aren’t that bad!

  2. Brilliant use of a pocket page to accompany the full size page. WOW to going from 4 to 2 albums, which as many of us have shelf space storage, a good thing.
