One of my January goals was that I wanted to start using “Fifty-Two Pages” to keep track of my pictures throughout the year. I’ve never been a scrapbooker, not for a lack of effort, and I probably still have the leftovers of a few failed attempts. I’ve read about “Project Life” which is a more modern way of scrapbooking, and looks pretty neat. But also pretty time consuming and complicated. Not for a beginner like me. At least not right now.
Then I read about Fifty-Two Pages on a blog I started following…and I let out an audible “Halleluiah.” It’s a simple 5-step process:
- Take photos. (Duh…)
- Pick your favorites. (This is also a good way of clearing out excess pictures so there’s more room on your phone.)
- Make a collage with your favorites. (With apps like Diptic and PicStitch, it’s suuuuper easy.)
- After the year is over, you’ll have a 52 page “scrapbook” of sorts to print out, save and share!
- You can do this on your own, or you can join the Fifty-Two Pages community and share your collages every week on Instagram/Twitter/Facebook using the hashtag #fiftytwopages. (It’s really fun to see other friends collages!)
And that’s it! It’s so easy even I can do it. So you can too. And even if you’re joining in now, you can look back on the past 2 weeks of pictures on your phone and make up the collages you missed.
Here are my past 2 weeks of #fiftytwopages collages:
