Since 2013 I’ve been scrapbooking the “right now” using an approach that combines Project Life and Library of Memories. Even though I organize my photos and albums chronologically, I think about stories along thematic lines.

When I have a photo I want to scrapbook, I consider all the stories that come to mind. I think about where those stories fit into the context of our life and identify which one feels the most compelling in the present moment.

That’s the story I use right away to create—or I mark it down in my Simple Scrapper Planner using the LOM-style story tracking page.
