Thanks for putting these up, Toni. I'm not focusing on them yet, though. I am DETERMINED to finish my year-in-review first! Since I arrived in Collie, most of my scrapping has been devoted to this project. While I had completed half of October, I hadn't started our holiday and wanted to record as much of it as was practical....8 double sided pages in all. At least now I'm into Dec, but it too has been a very busy month for us. Smile

Well done Kathy... I've given up on Year in Review albums as for some reason I never get them done. Rolling Eyes

No Worries Kathy

I was having issues trying to find them all the time on facebook so I finally fixed my computer so I could copy them across ( my phone wouldn't let me )

WTF on your YIR, I really would love to get this done, maybe with a new found focus on the photo a day I will find some inspiration Very Happy

I'm thinking the same Toni...
I've just seen a good idea for a planner that I think I might do this year and it will tie in nicely with the photo a day and year in review I think.
Especially as I have the binder pages already...

Good luck to both of you.

Tom & I both love our YIR albums, which is why I make mine a priority at the start of each month. I got a stack of Captured Moments stickers from Lorraine, and Kaiser also have a stamp set and die set (which Sue-Maree has and I love), that are made for the YIR type of project . I can't wait to get started on my Jan pages. Very Happy Must be patient....

I too am intrigued about the stamp and dies that you are using on YIR album Kathy.

I made an attempt on creating a YIR album but did not get very far.

Scrapping/card making is off to a reasonable start this year as Ihave managed to complete 2 of this months challenges and as it will be another warm day today I plan on completing another of the challenges.

This is the stamp set we both have:
https://www.kaisercraft.com.au/newsite/products.php?prod=CS159

There are some other good ones, too. They are in the Captured Moments section. We found them at Spotlight.

This is a link to the section.
https://www.kaisercraft.com.au/newsite/productsearch.php?search=captured moments&page=0

We also have the stickers, which Lorraine got for us, and they look so good and are great value too, I reckon.

I haven't tracked down the die set yet. Pity, as I don't have one and am using Sue-Maree's. I'd really like one of my own, so will keep looking. I can't find them in Kaisercraft, so perhaps someone else produced it.

I have found the dies which are made my Becky Higgins:

I have also been using the dies which I was lucky enough to get in that last order Lorraine got for us. I'm loving it.
