52 Week Catch Up (2012)6:30 AM
1. Use old scraps and/or kits that you have laying around. I found that I actually had kits from that time still pulled together in my stash which made it really easy to finish off pages. The added benefit was that I was also reducing my stash! (justification for new product, right?)
2. Plan/Map out what dates/events are missing. I keep my diary every year so I was able to go through with a note book and work out what happened in those missing weeks so that I knew what to fill.
3. Work out which photos you are going to use for everything on your list at once. This way you only walk down memory lane on one occasion, not every time you need a single photo. This was a good time saver in the long run.
4. If you find a gap that you cant fill straight away on your list, leave it and come back to it later. There is no point wasting time on filling it when you can be working on the other items and thinking about it at the same time... Some of these missing events just needed a bit of time to think about them and how I was going to portray them.
