So, some of my photos make it into digital albums and for the last three years, my photos from my walls, Christmas cards and other miscellaneous printed photos have been laying around my house, waiting for me to do something with them! I decided to organize and get all of these pictures put into my album before I completely pack away my Christmas things this years.
I wanted to share how I put the letters in, too. I trim the letters down as much as possible, so they don't weigh as much in the album, then line them all up down either the inside or outside edge of the album. Then I tape just on one edge, so the letters can be lifted up and read as I'd like. When I put the page protectors on it, I put the letters on top of the protectors so they can still be lifted (that's why I place them on the outside edge.)
I have noticed two things the last two years: 1. Not as many people are doing the yearly letters anymore. It kind of makes me sad, because I don't keep just cards, only pictures and letters and 2. People have started to make their picture cards double sided, so it's hard to keep these and be able to see all the pictures! The company that is doing this is Tiny Prints. I put this card with the letters, you can see it's the red one on the right. It's really stiff though, but I'm not sure it will be easy to read the back.
