How to catch up on 2 months of weekly pocket scrapbooking - I've fallen "behind"!

How to catch up when you've fallen behind in your weekly pocket scrapbooking project, using Lightroom and what you have on hand

It happened, I fell behind in my weekly pocket scrapbooking project!!! I got caught up in all the crazy busy schedule of birthdays and holidays and my weekly pocket pages ended up getting put aside for two months. My goal is to get caught up super fast and then show you how I did it. Here's what I plan to do!



TUESDAY:

Tuesday is our Costco shopping day, so that I need to get all the photos uploaded, edited and prepped for printing. How do I do that? It's simple and I've shown you how easy it is to do. Here are my steps for getting my photos ready for print.

  1. Import photos and use metadata in Lightroom
  2. Quick Collections in Lightroom - gather photos together I want to use
  3. Quick Clean Edit in Lightroom - using My 4 Hens Lightroom presets
  4. Print Module in Lightroom - use templates and save for print

WEDNESDAY:

Wednesdays are really busy days for us. The only thing I plan on doing today is trimming the photos from last night's Costco run and then inserting them into the pockets according to what week they are from.

  1. Why I choose Project Life® Design A page protector and a weekly format

THURSDAY:

Thursdays are usually catch up days for homeschooling. This means, I don't have a lot of time to play. I plan on sifting through my organization containers and just grabbing Project Life® cards that I already have on hand.

  1. Project Life Cards and embellishments - how I organize them

FRIDAY:

Fridays are fun days for us. It usually means we're actively playing and it's also family game/movie night. We do however have a 2 hour "quiet time" where each of us are sent to our assigned areas of the house to play quietly. The big kids usually play LEGOs while the little dude usually takes a nap. This will be my time to actively fill out any journaling I need to and I'll grab my date stamp and stamp it. I'm not looking for pretty or getting elaborate with embellishments.

  1. my new favorite journaling pens
  2. doodling on pre-made journal cards
I just want it done so I can remember and scrapbook our current events! I'll be back next week to tell you how it went and if I got it done according to my schedule. I can't wait to share my pages with you and show that you don't need to be disheartened when you "get behind" and it's super easy to get caught up!
