I’ve had so much fun over the past few weeks putting together some foundation pages for my October Daily album. These pages give me a place to start so I’m not staring at a blank page on October first and wondering where to begin.
This year I’m creating a 4×4 inch mini album. I just loved this size last year. It ends up being the perfect chunky little album to hold in your hands and flip through.
I like lots of variety of sizes and textures in my albums. I create pages inside and outside the page protectors, I do a lot of messy stitching to give texture, and I love creating pockets because they have lots of tuck spots.
I can’t believe it’s time to start thinking about Halloween and October Daily again!
This week I started prepping for October Daily by going through all of my Halloween supplies, and setting up my craft station.
I’ve also been purchasing new Halloween goodies, even though I have more supplies than one girl needs, I find it gets me excited about the project and brings out my creativity.
This month I’m going to focus on putting together some foundation pages. I like to make my really crafty pages ahead of time when I’m not burnt out on the project. Then I can just fill in the details when I get to that day.
I’ll be using a 4×4 album again. I loved this size last year!
I’ve also started thinking about different things I want to document. It’s going to be strange this year because of the pandemic, so I’m brainstorming ways I can make this season special, in spite of the circumstances.
Below I’m sharing a video walk through of my October Daily kit.
October Daily Prep Tips:
Take inventory of your supplies, donate those you know you won’t use, and purchase any new supplies you need/want. Don’t forget the basics like tape runner refills!
Brainstorm some ideas for things you want to do and document in your album. Schedule any activities you want to do during October.
Decide what size album you want to use, have fun with your supplies and put together some foundation pages.
