Photo Tracking Notebook

Last month I printed off a photo that I had already scrapped. My scrapping consists of my album, oldest son's album and youngest son's album I really don't need the extra photos.  So I decided I needed a different way to keep track my photos.

Next to my printer I have a small file holder that holds my printed pictures.  I use the small post it notes to write the date after I print them then stick them to the back. There is also a bunch of note paper that list's the photo I'm planning on scrapping during month.  A while back I traded my oldest some college ruled for wide ruled composition books (he wants college but picked up wide) and it's a hassle to return and replace so we traded. 

I started by covering the front with a pattern paper from DCWV's Sweet Tangerine Stack.  I want the front to be flat as I will probably store them in the file holder next to my printer. 
So I jumped a few pages in (4) and started my section.  I started with 2009 as I've been scrapping a lot of that years photos.  I didn't want my tabs sticking out so I cut the page at the red line, measured my paper and cut the pattern paper. I rounded the corners after everything was already glued on.

I'm in the process of transferring my previous notes  into the notebook.  For 2009 I started with August, don't know what I was thinking, maybe because I was scrapping that month.  For the time being my notes of photos are paper clipped in.

I punched a tab and used the date stamp and word punch to make my year for both sides of the tab punch.  I used pattern paper that is light weight as the cardstock really bulked it up. For the 2010 tab I punched the inside part just to see how it would work. 

For each year I have a page for each month, then 3 more pages one for each of my guys, the I added 3 more for extra for a total of 18 pages. For this Photo tracking notebook I have years 2009 to 2013. There was a few pages at the end of 2013 and I just put a post it note there (pink one on the right) so I know I can add a small section there if I want.

This notebooks starts my 2014 photo tracking. I'm planning on adding something to the front of the notebooks so that I can glance at them and see what the years are.  I may also just use my P-Touch to add a label to the spine for when it is standing up.

I just pulled random paper for the inside dividers, I have it in my stash so I must use it. I used we glue for the outside covers and inside front and back covers, then used dry adhesive for the divider pages.

Nicely done! And, great idea!

That is a great idea. I've been thinking a lot about photo organizing and figuring out what still needs to be scrapped. Now you've got me thinking some more.

Fabulous idea in a cute package! I love it, I might be borrowing this idea so I can track the pictures I have scrapped too.
