LAYOUTS: September 2010

I love Cathy Zielski's philosophy of scrapbooking and her clean and simple style. She sells layout templates at Designer Digitals (http://www.designerdigitals.com/) including album kits. One of her kits is called "The Monthly".

Here's some posts on her blog about it:

I bought the kit and finally sat down to start using it. I started with September 2010. I now have 8 pages (4 2-page spreads) giving an overview of our September. Even if I never get to scrap the details of all the major things that happened that month, I have this. I love this idea!

My plan is to use a different color scheme/set of papers for each month. For September, I used papers from SongBird Avenue. They put out a kit in benefit of Haiti back when the earthquake happened. Unfortunately it's no longer available, but here's the link to the list of the designers: http://www.songbirdavenue.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=26_23&products_id=59
