Happy WOYWW! Another Wednesday is here and I'm showing off the Command Center. Boy, there are things everywhere as I'm working on tons of projects for the upcoming Fall in Love (Tomber Amoureux) engagement party for DS1 and future DIL. Between those projects, I'm also trying to complete the wedding album for DS3 & DIL from July. Yes! I'm crazy and loving it!
I know it sounds nuts, but I think I do best when my plate is full. There's no time for procrastinating which is my second favorite thing to do.
Here's my actual work area:
If you follow my blog, you know DS3 was married in Las Vegas in July. I posted photos of their engagement party and wedding HERE and HERE. The best part of working on the album is that I get to re-live the wedding. It was so much fun! I have a box full of papers, embellishments & photos for this album but when it came down to putting the pages together, I was overwhelmed. So I grabbed this divider thingy and separated the embellishments and it helped so much! So did the premade layouts I did before printing the photos.
Because there are so many photos (I printed over 200), I am adding a lot of flip-flaps. What are flip-flaps, you ask? They are exactly that. There are many different sizes, but basically you add a flap on the outside protector over the same size photo on the page. (Look at the photos below or check out YouTube.) They add interactive fun to your layouts and really do allow you to add so many more photos without committing to full page layouts. Although I've heard of flip-flaps, this is the first time I've used them. I bought mine from CTMH* and I LOVE them! They come in multiple sizes and I bought one pack of each size.
I'll do an album flip thru once it's complete but for now, here's a few sneak peeks of some of the pages:
