What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday #8

This week I'm working on the Mediterranean Cruise scrapbook-for-hire project I was organizing last week. This album will have a combination of traditional layouts and pocket page layouts.

On my craft table . . . I'm currently working on the 2nd side of a 12x12 pocket page.


On the big table in the front room . . . supplies, album, page protectors, printed photos, memorabilia, notes, etc. I really like having this table where I can spread everything out and still have my entire craft table for the actual scrapbooking.


I'll have six pages completed by the end of the day today and will meet with my client again this week to be sure the pages have the look and feel she wants for this project. Here's a peek at the first two pages. It's hard to tell from these photos, but each page has items popped up (various photos on the first layout and some of the airplane squares on the second).



Joining in today with Julia at Stamping Ground for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. What's on your workdesk this week?

Scrap booking seems to be such a personal thing (I don't do it but best friend does) so how is it when you do it for someone else? Is it easier or harder or does it depend on the individual project? Just interested to know!

I really like the paper with the planes. Great idea to pop some of the squares up for added dimension.

The layouts look amazing - I'm sure your client will be made up about it. I like the gold adventure page with all the tiny pictures in it. Keep up the good work and have a great week! EmbroidRage #2 x

I'm guessing your client will be thrilled, but meeting with her at the beginning of the project is such a great idea! I would love to have a table like that to spread everything out; I'm betting it would increase productivity!

Hi Melissa,

Great pages! I'm sure your client will be happy with what you've done so far. What's interesting is I had never thought of hiring someone to put a scrapbook together. I don't scrapbook and would think it's a personal thing. It's VERY cool you can do what you love and are good at it for money!

Happy WOYWW
Peace, Kay (35)

Your layouts are fab - I'm sure your client will be delighted. I've not heard of scrapbook-for-hire before. Here in Scotland there is no tradition of scrapbooking - people are more likely just to put all their photos into an album, or even keep them on a disc. I like the combining traditional layouts with pocket pages too. Have a good week. Elizabeth x #30

Julia Dunnit said...

Well I think that your dining table is perfect for spreading out on...after all, you could land a small plane on it!! Like the LOs. Erm much, am perfectly sure your client will!

Dorlene Durham said...

Great pages! I'm sure the client will love them.

Love your scrapbook just wondering if I could do one of the trip with my grandson to Orlando, it would give him some memories.

Love all the photos on your first page and not ever thought of pocket pages, but then I haven't ever done a ring binder album either, just the old post bound ones. Looking good, I'd be WELL pleased. BJ#10
