WW: Simple Mini Albums in a Pinch

In keeping with my word for 2011, simplicity, I found the perfect solution for my photos. Just 5 photos per month. FIVE! Totally doable. A 6x11 landscape mini album that can be easily printed and held together with a binder ring.

  2. Great idea Alicia! I am a couple of years behind on keeping up with any sort of album - yikes! I'm so far gone that it almost seems impossible to catch up. But five photos a month sounds completely doable. I am heading over to download the template...

  3. Oh, that's brilliant! I'm not sure if I could limit myself to just 5, though. =) Maybe if I do one album for each child...hmmm.

  11. Oh I love the mini-albums. What a fantastic idea and would be so much easier that my sitting down at the end of the year and going through all my pictures and trying to get them in a book.

  17. Love that simplicity...if only I had the discipline to adhere to that, I might actually have photo albums started!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love those pics and what a fab idea! I need that template!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love this idea! It will be so great to bind them at the end of the year and be able to glance back at the year. But how in the world did you pick only 5 photos per month?! Can't wait to borrow this idea ; )

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a great and easy way to journal the year:)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Beautiful and what a nifty idea!

  29. I love the idea of an album. Your photos are always so awesome and I love how the album displays them. What a gift you have! Thanks so much for hosting WW. I've linked up a few photos of our Good Friday in NH. It's starting to get pretty around here. Have a great Wednesday!

  30. I am so jealous of your skills. I missed the February photos, your children look so great in their "dancing" photo. The wardrobe is very Parisian, romantic & perfect for Valentine's day.

  31. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Awesome!!! Your kids are so darn cute!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like the way the different months contrast with one another, both the color and theme. Winter (january) in particular is so much different.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That is a really nice idea. I like how you can do the different months.

    ReplyDelete
  35. These Templates are really beautiful! I love how the Template colours match with the photos!
    Wonderful idea!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Man, I don't know why my picture posted three times. It kept re-directing me and saying it didn't go through. Sorry about that. :(

    ReplyDelete
  37. Those pages look so good! I love how you've matched the colours, very effective :) I downloaded those same templates a little while ago but haven't used them yet, I really should though!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. The months in photos look fabulous - they say so much about each month. Lovely work

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wow, so gorgeous. Even if these pics were chocolates I would not eat them.

    ReplyDelete
  40. love these collages!! you totally get a feel for your month. great idea :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm using the same templates! Love the simplicity of it and it's doable as a year long project.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love that idea! Now just to narrow down the five photos…

  43. What a genius idea! I'm going to have to do that - less overwhelming than trying to put together a whole year at the end of it. ;) LOVE all the pictures you've chosen for each month - perfect representations! :)

  46. Love the mini book idea. Great photos as always.

    ReplyDelete
  47. These mini books are a great idea!! Sometimes 5 photos speak more profoundly than 50!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh I definitely need this template! Love all your pics and great idea for month by month posting!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Stupendous idea! I've been thinking about how much of a shame it is to keep all my photos tucked away on the hard drive.

    This is a simple and easy solution to get me to start printing them out more often!

    Thanks for sharing :D

  57. Hmmm...that might be a good way to finally get myself on track with my very behind scrapbooking! I'll have to take a look at the templates. :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love your monthly photos! Dumb question: is that collage only for photoshop? I only have Lightroom and I hate when I can't use all the cool stuff people do

    ReplyDelete
  59. I went and got the templates. Thanks for the ideas. What did you print it on and like Becky I use something other than photoshop (on my want list). Katharine
