Learning Project Update!

This week was an organization and planning week for my learning project. I realized this project was going to be a large undertaking after doing some research on Pinterest and simple Google searches. I started off by planning what kind of pictures I would like to include in this scrapbook and decided that because this was going to be a 50th wedding anniversary present I wanted to include pictures that spanned over their last 50 years of marriage. I took a trip out to the family farm to go through mountains of photo albums. Luckily we live in a digital age and instead of taking the very delicate photos in to make copies I was able to use my phone to take a copy of the photo and then print them off. I also started researching what kind of materials you should start off with and I found a site with wallet-friendly suggestions. I watched several youtube videos to give me a better understanding of what would be most appropriate for my project. This video seemed to be the most useful for determining supplies:

Unfortunately, I don’t have a local craft store, however, I was able to find a few basic supplies at the Walmart and Dollarama and I ordered the rest online on Amazon. I settled on the basics for now and I will continue to collect materials as I need them.

Starting Materials:

-acid free paper (cardstock 12″x12″)

multicolor/patterned paper (assorted sizes)

paper protectors (12″x12″)

  1. I cannot wait to see pictures of your finished project! A scrapbook of my wedding day is something that I thought about making. I am excited to see your steps from beginning to end, as it would help give me an idea on how I can go about making my own scrapbook as well!

    1. It’s never too late, a wedding scrapbook would be so pretty! I noticed just how difficult it is to get photo’s printed off, we always just use our phones to take photos and share them online not too many people print them off for albums anymore!
