Hello SgD Scrappers!
Kassandra will be turning 1 Year old in April 24th! I know... times flies! And for her 1st year birthday I want to make a digital scrapbooking album that I will print and show during her party.
The Digital Scrapbooking Album is -of course - about her 1st year.
I am giving myself one month to complete the albumn and I am a little worry that the one-month commintment, but as I think about it, I only have one month left to do it, since I send my layouts to get printed online and it can take up to a week to get them shipped back to me.
So, I think one-month is the only way to actually get this done. Plus, the closer I get to the birthday party date, the worse I am going to be with time and party preparations.
I am also only giving myself 1 hour a day to work on the project. NOT including the weekends. So, is like 5 hours a week. I am doing this because I also want to see if I can actually be a little more efficient on completing my albums. I guess we will see, if one hour a day is enough.
So, here is my master plan:
GOAL - To Complete Kassandra's 1st year 20 Page album by March 21.
GOAL Details and Schedule:
Select at least 25-30 photos for the albumn. Organize the photos by months. This will make it easier when creating the pages in cronological order. Make all photos adjustments, if they need them. Decide which photos will go together on each page.
Day 1 - Select 30 photos
Day 2 - Organize the photos in chronological order, decide which photos go on each page.
Day 3 - Make 10 photos adjustments
Day 4 - Make 10 photos adjustments
Day 5 - Make 10 photos adjustments
Select the Digital Scrapbooking materials and themes: kits, quick pages, templates, page titles and prompts. Select 20 QPs and 20 Templates, even though I only planning to create a 20 page album, just to give my self a little room to change my mind if I want to.
Day 6 - Select all digital scrapbooking kits to use
Day 7 - Select at least 20 Qps
Day 8 - Select at least 20 Templates
Day 9 - Identify 15 page titles or prompts
Day 10 - Identify 15 page titles or prompts
Create Layout Pages 1-10.
Yeah, this is scary, 10 pages a week, is like 2 pages a day. I am only giving myself 1 hour a day to complete this project - NOT including weekends. So, is really only 5 hours per week. So, the challenge here is to complete 1 layouts in 30 mins. But, if you think about it, the photos are selected, fixed and the prompt identified. So, it should be just a matter of "putting it together". Also, depending on how much time I spent on the 1st layout, I might just use a Quick Page on the second layout for that day. This will buy me time.
Day 11 - Create two pages. One using a QP, one using the template.
Day 12 - Create two pages. One using a QP, one using the template.
Day 13 - Create two pages. One using a QP, one using the template.
Day 14 - Create two pages. One using a QP, one using the template.
Day 15 - Create two pages. One using a QP, one using the template.
Create Layout Pages 11-20.
The same as last week applies here.
Day 16 - Create two pages. One using a QP, one using the template.
Day 17 - Create two pages. One using a QP, one using the template.
Day 18 - Create two pages. One using a QP, one using the template.
Day 19 - Create two pages. One using a QP, one using the template.
Day 20 - Create two pages. One using a QP, one using the template.
I will try my harderst to post my daily progress --the work that I got done on my daily digital scrapbooking hour. If not, definately weekly, but I rather do it daily. And of course, I will post all pages at the end of the project.
And here we go.... let the timers begin!
BTW - if anyone wants to join me in this project challenge to create their own album, just copy this post, modify it to describe your project ( I recommend that you live the projec schedule the same, unless your project is completely different) and post it as a new post under this forum category.
