    Default How do you organize your albums?

    I'm just curious. I started out thinking I would make albums for each girl, but so many of my pictures and finished LOs have both in them... I'm thinking about doing them chronologically.

    What do you do?

    I do a combination. I guess it's all still in chronological order. I do a baby's first year for each one, though I've only done Austin. LOL Then I do a main book in order of date. HTH, I know it's hard.

    I have separate albums for each child, and they are arranged chronologically. Well, okay, they are arranged kinda chronologically and some day I will get around to putting the pages in the exact right order. Each of the kids has an album for their first year with all of their baby stuff and "firsts" in it, and they are each currently on their second album. Evan's will probably be full soon; maybe I will be able to stretch it until he goes to school but idk.

    I have another "family" album that has any pages that are about both of them or whole family events - holidays, vacations, brother/sister stuff, etc.

    different albums arranged chronologically. I do duplicate layouts for any pics that have both, I just change the colors I use.

    chronological - I don't always do my pages in order, but when I'm done, I organize the book in chronological order (I do one book for each year). the baby books are chronological.

    I have a book for Jamie and one for Allie ( and ones for general family) and if the picture has both kids in it then I just choose who to do it for or I do the picture twice from two different perspectives. It took a lot of thought for me to decide how I wanted to do it and this is what is working for me.

    They are not chronological at ALL. I scrap what I am in the mood to scrap and put it in the book at the end. Maybe one day I will go back and organize.

    I would say a combination. I have books for each one done like a baby book and then I have a family album as well. The baby books I have done by date but the family one right now is jusy how the pages go in.

    I do one for each kid, and I do it according to their year. Joshua was born in september so I do it from september to september. And Stephen was born in August so I do it from august to august.

    I plan on making a summer vacation album becuase we did alot this summer but I will still add things from that summer to their individual ones.

    I always have to have them go in by date, and I have to do them in order, I just can't skip ahead, for some reason I just can't.. lol

    Each one of my kids has their own albums. And each Album is put into chronological order but only in that album. eventually i will make it that each album is in line with the next but not yet.

    I do a scrapbook a year. I put them in order.

    I am trying my best to complete a first year scrapbook for each on of my kids. I will finish Randy's first b/c his first b-day is right around the corner. Ruthie's is still a work in progress.
