I really tried to make my scrappy planner as a way of documenting our lives work. I thought it would be so fun to combine planning and scrapbooking and I'd keep up with it and it would be amazingly creative and I'd love every minute of it.
And when I'm doing it, I do love it.
But I'm not doing it. I haven't since Spring Break and I just can't bring myself to go set up my craft desk and work on it.
And, oh, I miss documenting our lives. Having albums to hold and share with my family.
I know what works for me is digital scrapbooking. And I know that at the moment, I'm tired of documenting weekly. I just don't have enough to document weekly.
So monthly it is.
Clean and simple it is.
I actually decided I'd do all my pictures in black and white. I'm using Cathy Zielske minimalist templates. I'm using one color scheme for the whole thing, based on Cathy's Nature paper pack. I'm either using other CZ products or creating my own journal cards. I'm using Bariol and Bariol Serif for fonts.
And I love how it's coming together.
Gah. Love it. And so easy to get caught up when I'm keeping it so clean and simple.
