Do you have boxes of photos that you printed and never did anything with?
I started Scrapbooking because I realized when you develop or print your photos you look and them and then put them away in a box or drawer, I love how putting them into a scrapbook tells a story for your kids to enjoy later.
So how do you organize them?
Loose Photos (already printed) –
Since I do a lot of Scrapbooking I try to print out my photos of events within 1 or 2 weeks of the event. When I have them printed I put them in an envelop or one of those containers that have the smaller photo containers that fit inside (photo below)
I try to write on the back of the photos, but that does not always happen. So when I am ready to scrapbook I just pull out the envelope for that event and use the photos for my page.
Digital Photos –
So for my digital photos, I use iphoto and have each event in a folder. as I print them, I have folders for each year and add the printed ones to each year and then I back them up to my icloud, I used to put them on a CD but I have so many and it takes up lots of space.
How about you? How do you organize your photos? Do you have a similar way? I would love to hear your ideas! Share in the comments!
Happy Stampin’ and Scrapin’
