That’s right, I finished this page, added it to the album, and with a content sigh placed “Maui 2012” on the FINISHED scrapbook shelf. Let’s just say that a truly finished scrapbook is a rare thing in this house. I’m excited. I want to do that more.
I don’t want to ever pressure myself to work in a certain order or make myself stick to one thing even if uninspired. That just isn’t my style. That said, there really is something to be said about a complete vacation album and I will be looking around at partially completed albums to see if any that I have would be candidates for this style of quick and simple scrapbooking in the future. For my final page I had a lot of random photos that needed to be in the album, and I went ultra simple. Just Project Life Olive cards + photos + journaling.
There really wasn’t a title for this page unless I wanted to put “miscellaneous photos” as a title, which I did not. I really didn’t feel like it needed embellishing because of all the decorative cards. Basically, in an album FULL of techniques and embellishing and fancy stuff I was good with just adding a plain, flat, fast and very easy page.
I will continue to use my Olive core kit on more traditional scrapbook pages as well as pages like these Hawaii ones for sure. I still have plenty of them! I believe that I will also do another mini-series (like Project Hawaii) in the future and share here on the blog. I still have a lot of ideas rattling around my head after all, and goodness knows I have PLENTY of photos to scrapbook so having subjects to work with is no problem!
For now I encourage you to consider mixing in different styles of pages into your albums. Think about the possibility of doing a few single/few photo pages where there is more embellishing and creative play, and some that feature more photos and are very simple. I really like the end results of my album, and as I said before you haven’t seen the last of this kind of two page spread from me.
