6×8 family photos album
When creative team member Krista Faulkner shared her 6×8 family photo album project with us, we knew we had to share it with you! Beautifully simple in design and easily assembled, this project is the perfect way to display all of those professional (or not-so-professional) photos from a given time period, event, or an ongoing timeline. Here is how Krista tackled this project:
My husband and I have been married for 11 years and over those years we’ve had our family photo taken quite a few times, both by professional photographers and random family members. I’ve printed out a very limited number of these awesome photos for display in our home or to send to loved ones. Recently, I was thinking how sad it is that these great photos mostly just hang out on a hard drive and a few out in blogland. So I decided to make a whole album dedicated just to our family portrait sessions! That way, more of the awesome and funny shots are out of the computer and ready to be shared and enjoyed!
I LOVE how this turned out and I plan on adding to it every time we have our family photo taken (I’m currently planning outfits for our 2014 photos and can’t wait to add them in!). For this project, I used the Midnight 6×8 album, the Midnight Edition Core Kit, Midnight Edition Designer Paper, and 6×8 Page Protectors Design 1, Design 3, and Design 4.
For each “session,” I printed my most favorite image to 6×8 (some are horizontal and some are vertical and I’m ok with that) and then other favorites to 4×6 and 3×4. To keep things simple, the only journaling I included was the date, where the photos were taken, and who photographed us. Other than that, I filled up the spaces with filler cards and trimmed down 12×12 paper.
This project was super simple and very quick. It makes me so happy to have all these family moments printed out and in one single album. It’s fun to see how our family has changed and grown over these past 11 years.
