Document Your Year in 3 Easy Steps

Hello American Crafts fans! It’s Flóra here today! With only a few days left in 2019, I thought I would share some great tips to help you document this year in a mini album! I made a simple and cute base for my 2019 mini album using the 1Canoe2 Willow collection. I added the title "happy 2019" on the cover. This year wasn't perfect, but I decided to highlight all the positive things that happened this year. 


Tip One – Collect 

It is always fun to look over an entire year and you will be surprised by how many things happened. You can gather the information using your planner, calendar and photos from your phone. 



Tip Two – Categorize

You can use photos and pick 1-2 favorite moments from each month or you can use a theme. You can even fill up your album with journaling! Here are some ideas you can include in your album:

  • trips you took in 2019
  • songs you loved in 2019
  • world events of 2019 
  • milestones that happened in 2019



Tip Three- Decorate 

Dedicate a page for each theme. Be sure to use titles and stickers! The more the merrier. 


I hope you found my tips useful. Wishing you a happy new year!
