Feeling Overwhelmed with Photos?

Way too many pictures in shoeboxes.  Someone just handed you a ridiculous pile of photos and paraphernalia from ancestors and said, "See what you can do with this."  You have your first child's baby book done but she graduates in two years and you have three more children.  Here's one of the first bits of advice I was given when I started scrapbooking almost 20 years ago.

Organizational Tip:
Start with current photos - Yes, I said it.  Start with current photos.  Skip the baby pics.  It will get you going.  It will help you accomplish something to put out at graduation or look through now.  It will be easier to remember details for journaling.  You can always go back and work on older photos.  Trust me.

If you want to really get a bunch of pages done in a short amount of time, consider trying a preconfigured page like these from We R Memory Keepers multi-pack.  Many are the common 4x6 photos but there are other sizes available as well as assorted sizes on the same page.

12x12 Ring Multi Pack
The beauty of this style is there is no thought to the layout itself.  You simply slide in photos or journaling boxes or pre-designed tags or whatever.  Here's where we can help you....
