I *think* I’ve finally decided how I’m going to put together/display my P365 photos (besides doing one digital printed album at the end of the year). I’m going to do a mini album for each month so I have a place to add some keepsakes throughout the month (I don’t have any for Jan since I just decided to do this). I have a short attention span when it comes to these projects and it seems that if I don’t finish them right away I won’t finish them at all.  Needless to say it was important to me for this to be simple, quick, and easy while still being fun to put together and to look at. I learned a few things while doing this
– My adhesive sucks I’ll take any recs. you have!
– I need a date stamper
– I need LOTS more Elle’s studio. These tags were SO perfect for this project. Gave all the little details I wanted – without all the work!
– Need more Studio Calico and October Afternoon paper and stickers (it’s pretty much all I used).
– Need smaller rings.
– Need to decide on a sturdier cover, maybe just an acrylic?
– Did I mention I need a new adhesive?

Anyway here is my very first mini album ever!

  1. this is a cute idea. I started out with the idea (the first time I attempted p365 in 2008?) that I would order 4×6 prints and make a mini similar to this one. I used a date stamp and a journaling stamp for each page. of course I fell off the p365 wagon midway through the year but… here's what it looked like: http://www.cutchens.com/2008/02/the-last-of-the-concroptioncom-february-projects/ (http://bp2.blogger.com/_dTlnHpWbIg0/R8YBRylLypI/AAAAAAAAARk/Kbv4E3LoWRA/s400/POTDalbum.jpg)

  2. I love it!!! I hope someday I can be disciplined enough to do this!!! Love the photos!! I use scrapbook adhesives in my mini albums. The ez runner red one! πŸ™‚

  3. Love this! I love all the labels! My fave adhesive is the Tombow mono-multi (with the green cap). It's liquid, but holds like a dream and dries pretty fast. Most people I've turned on to it love it too! I made lots of converts when I used to teach at our LSS. I find that tabs just don't work as well, esp. with thicker or textured items. You can get the Tombow at JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby (most of the time). I like to order from ScrapbookPal.com /bc it's cheaper there – it's where I get my cricut cartridges for cheap too. Good luck and I hope you keep it up!

    Fabulous idea! i love it and now I'm thinking of doing P365 next year! I am really forgetful so i have never even attempted but the way you've done the mini book is awesome!

  5. This is a great idea! I think this would be a great project for someone who is just beginning in the scrapbook world or someone who doesn't have much time to spend or much money! This is my third year doing project 365. The first year, I printed my pictures in wallet size and did a 8 1/2" x 11" landscape album using bits and pieces of my stash. I love the way it turned out, but I still ended up with 2 complete (rather thick) albums. Last year, I used Becky Higgins, Project Life Kit…loved it, super simple to keep up. And I started a blog to help me with the journaling. This year, I am using Project Life Digital. I miss having the 4 x 6 pictures to look at and am kinda disappointed that I won't have an album until the beginning of next year, but it is really easy to keep up!

  6. I love your album and am inspired to create my own. Thank you!
    I wasted SO much time and money looking for the best adhesive, and I have been using an atg 714 tape gun for about the last year. I but my refills from thetapedepot.com where i buy twelve rolls for about 23$. It is acid and lignen free so safe for all of my projects. The atg 714 is 1/4 inch wide and great! You can even get a pink version of the gun at Michaels for about 40 dollars unless you have a coupon.
