Do you plan out your albums?

I do. I keep a list of things to scrap and how many pages it will take. I try to do a 2 page LO for each thing. But if I have on event that will only be one page, I have to plan to make the one before or after it an odd number. And I write all this down on my little list. and if there's an anecdote I'm afraid I'll forget I write that down. And if I have something in mind to use with it (like a cart or a title) I write that down. I'm a little obsessive. Right now my list is all crossed off! I need to update it of course with Halloween & on. Then when I get the pix that I just ordered I'll organize and make another list. It's harder with my childhood pix so I have to actually go thru the prints first!

Wow - you are organized Janessa! I have a notebook where I jot things down, sketch out a few ideas, color choices, etc., but that's about it.

You are way ahead of me, lol. I have a little notebook that I write down the number of pictures for the page and the theme of the page. I used to also go through all my printed layouts and pick those, but I stopped doing that this year. It's so time consuming.

When I made my wedding album I made a little sketch of a book and went through and wrote on each page what was going where and then I could see where everything would be placed, how many pages it would take up, the order for everything and when a page was done I could put it in the book with out having to take it all apart to fix later. Wow that was a long run on sentence! I shouldnt be allowed to type this tired. haha

Nope, no prior planning here. I try to get good pictures to scrap, but other than that, since I just scrap life as it happens there's not much to plan. lol

I guess I did plan a bit more when I did my 1st album (also a wedding one) but after that not as much so.
