In 2021, I started an October Daily album. After being inspired by other scrapbook designers who create the most stunning October Daily albums, I wanted to dive in and give it a try. October Daily is like December Daily (by Ali Edwards), however, the idea is to document stories about your everyday life during the fall and Halloween season. I’ve always created traditional 12×12 inch layouts to document my fall memories. But, after many years of scrapbooking, I welcome the opportunity to scrapbook my autumn stories in a different format.
So, with good intentions, I started an October Daily album last fall. I documented a total of four stories, then I abandoned the project! As it turns out, my plate was filled to the brim with projects and deadlines, so my October Daily album got pushed to the side.
However, this year I decided to continue this project but with a different mindset…my October Daily project will be a perpetual album! I am giving myself the freedom to add to this project whenever I want throughout the fall season over multiple years.
Once an album is filled, I’ll just start a new one. This approach offers a ton of flexibility and allows me to focus on the spirit of the project versus worrying about an arbitrary self-imposed deadline to “finish” this album.
Today on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel, I’m continuing my October Daily project by creating two new spreads (story #5 and #6) along with a quick look at the layouts I completed before I stopped working on this project in 2021. Be sure to click on the following video to see these pages come together! Also, photos of today’s projects are posted below.

For this project, I’m working in a travelers notebook style format (4.25 x 8.25 inches). I find this size to be perfect for everyday and theme-based mini albums.
My goal for this project is to keep my pages simple and clean, with a focus on documenting my everyday stories throughout the month of October.
I love that there are so many options and variations of the October Daily project! Some people create mini albums, while others opt for notebook style projects, even planner spreads! You can truly make this project your own.
I’m so excited to share more of layouts from my October Daily album in the coming weeks! So far, I am having a blast documenting my fall adventures and using a good amount of my fall themed scrapbooking goodies!
Stay tuned for more to come!
