For The Love Of The 6x8 Size In Scrapbooking

I recently received a request to share some pages from my 6x8 albums. 

It was a great oppotunity for me to talk about why I love this size and how it's been working for me over the last few years. 

One of the places people tend to get hung up when it comes to memory keeping is struggling with sizes. I'm an equal opportunity memory keeper and still create layouts in a variety of sizes including 12x12, 9x12, 8.5x11, 6x8 and 3x8. 

At some point in the past I stopped worrying about having all the same matching albums and started focusing a whole lot more on getting my stories told and simply using my albums as the home for those stories. You can see some of my past posts about album organization here

As you'll hear me mention in the video, most of the layouts you'll see were created using products and themes from the Story Kit™. I tell four stories each month using the Story Kit™ - usually I do three layouts (of varying sizes but usually including 6x8) and a Project Life® spread. I share those in the classroom for that subscription. The monthly themes direct and inform and give me a pathway for my storytelling and I welcome that wholeheartedly. In the video I also mention my love for "one page photo/one page journaling" spreads and you'll see that come up again and again as a foundation for the stories I tell especially in this 6x8 size. 

PRODUCT NOTEWe hope to be able to stock the greige and black pleather albums again in the future. At this time we have navy pleather 6x8 along with a bunch of different chipboard album options if you are wanting to start a home for your 6x8 stories. 

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions in the comments below.

    Ali - I think the link to album organisation is wrong as it links to a hole punch on Amazon. I was keen to see this post. thx

    This was awesome! I'll probably go back and watch it again as I was kinda busy taking notes through the first veiwing.:) My choice for doing individual albums for each grandkid (#14 is due in August) is11x8.5 because I include school or sport awards I may have been given...I have plans to make an album about my childhood through high school and was planning to do it 11x8.5 but now I think 6x8 would be really fun!

    Thank you for sharing your albums. I was wondering if you include dates on the front or back of pictures or journaling?

      I try to remember to add it to the front of the layout somewhere!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you(!!!) for planning (or at least hoping) to restock the Greige Album! Those are my favorite albums I have ever owned; the quality and texture is super classy & the color is perfect (& Bonus points for having silver for the bookplate!)! So glad to hear these will maybe be back in stock sometime! :)

    I love these videos lately about organization or choosing albums - it's the "story behind the stories" that are also interesting!

    This is great - thanks. I have been struggling a bit with the 9x12 size for stories and think the 6x8 size might be more manageable. I love your black albums as they don't show finger marks/dust but would love one of your stories (written all over the album in words) albums that you did in the past - any chance of bringing those albums back?

    INSPIRING! Thank you Ali for a fantastic video worth watching over and over. 🤗 I have all your subscriptions, and I’m looking forward to trying out 6x8. What program do you use to write your printed stories?

    I love the 6x8 album size for memory keeping. I recognized the spread in Anna's album from your Hybrid Workshop. I learned SO MUCH from that workshop. It was an awesome learning tool and I've gone back to it time and time again for "refreshers". Loved it!

    Thanks for sharing ! I love the idea of having a separate album for each ☺️ I am new at documenting (I have been Scrapbooking since 2006, traditional and mixed media ) and now I am realizing that I should have started pocket pages a long time ago ! Doing December Daily and small vacation albums is really what got me started. Now that I am a subscriber I am hooked 😊

    i really needed the reminder of focusing on the words.
    I've had the albums for my boys gathering dust for far too long with pictures ready but not made time to write the story.
    So great to see how yours are coming together, so inspirational, really love your lessons learnt pages. i'm thinking of getting a navy 6x8 album to house 31 things in too...... i just need a time machine to get it all done ;o) xxxx

    Hello-I might have missed it in the comments, but I was wondering-on the albums you make for the kids are they ones that they will take with them or are they ones you make for yourself about them? Just wondering on how you do your journaling in those albums? I get a little overwhelmed when trying to figure out how to organize and scrapbook-family album, each kid an album, a personal album..... :) Thanks
