July Scrapbook Pages

Hi, everyone! I'm just now getting my July Title Page created and photos printed for my scrapbook. I had started the title page a couple of days before July, but it was not coming together like I liked, and I kept putting off working on it since I wasn't happy with it. That problem was solved earlier this week when I decided to trash the page I didn't like. I mean really. I don't need that kind of negativity in my life. LOL  The whole problem was using a different pocket style format that incorporated 4x4 pockets on the page - a style I have not used before. I could not wrap my head around how to make that work. So I went back to my standard page with 4 of the 4x6 pockets and 4 of the 3x4 pockets and guess what? Life is good again. :)

I also used my new Cannon Selphy CP1200 printer!
Now, I know what you're thinking... Tom bought you that great HP Photosmart printer just so you could print scrapbook photos!  That is correct. And I love that HP printer. But when my daughter and friend came to visit and were talking about the Selphy printer, I was tempted to give it a try. I'm glad I did. The speed and quality are almost matched to the big HP Photosmart printer. I mean the difference is so minute, it's not worth discussing. The HP photos are a bit better, but for scrapbook purposes, the Selphy printer is just fine. I'm actually hoping to save myself some ink expense with the Selphy printer. We use our HP Photosmart printer for more than just photos, so I do go through quite a bit of ink. And that's okay. I'm not going to NOT use my printer for fear of ink costs, but if I can decrease the ink cost by going to a printer just for photos, why not give it a try and see if works out well?
