It's so amazing how many years have gone by already, life is moving oh so fast, which is why we need to document things and get stuff down on paper! Before we forget!!
So this weekend when you are thinking about what to make? Why don't you make a layout about your scrapbook journey?
I bet you'll remember things that you'd thought you'd forgotten about ;) and after all the time and heart and soul you put into this beloved lifestyle, I think it definitely earned a page, or even a mini album!
Ta-Ta for now! Have a wonderful #NSD15!
I had a blast making this! I'm not usually a "pocket scrapper" but I'm starting to really love the whole concept! It's so fun to go from pocket to pocket adding little touches to make each one pretty!
That's my mom, she's awesome. She really rocked that pink Schwinn ;)
Make sure you go check out the gallery if you're looking for a little inspo, their DT is
ah-mazing! I'll be showing my other projects throughout the month too!
Ta-Ta for now!
I have all sorts of goodies in my pocket! Maggie Massey gave me the brilliant idea of laminating some of the printables from the Capture 30 class, so here is my Daily Prompts sheet all laminated up nice and it won't get ruined by my grubby mitts!
There has been talk about on some of the pouches the holes aren't aligned with the binder rings, and that's how mine was but ya know what? We're scrappers, we make things work, that's what we do. We're innovative. I bound the edge with some washi tape, then punched new holes. I mean there's worse things in life right? Like my cat throwin up all over my Christmas mini album cover. Now that's something to complain about here people.
I laminated this beauty, then added some pretty things! I have been using those little word stickers on EVERYTHING. I love them.
I also laminated the hole marker from the class too! So awesome!
Everything in the planner is so beautiful, look at those flowers! I added some of Maggie Holmes's flowers from her ephemera pack from the Open Book Collection, they match perfectly!
The washi tape booklet is the coolest thing! There are so many cute patterns, I just love them! So brill! These little snips add just the right amount of cuteness to a page!
Ok sooo I found this little gold shiny cute fringe layin around at CHA so I just clipped it right in there with an Instax photo, looks super cute in there. I love the "bliss" washi snip right there, it looks perfect!
Here's some more pages,
I wasn't sure how I wanted to use those long numbered strips, so I decided to use them as gratitude lists. One little thing everyday that I'm grateful for, keeps my head in the right place. There is always always something to be thankful for. Freedom & Excedrin baby. Freedom & Excedrin.
This is definitely something worthy of documenting;
I'm don't think I'm at liberty to explain exactly why we laughed until we cried, but believe me when I say this photo led to the craziest mini van ride, ever.
Ohmygosh so you might've seen this photo of Kyle & I ice skating? Welll it's kinda crazy now because shortly after this? We were in ER getting his appendix out. For reals! That is why I love this planner! You can capture every moment so easily, and so fast! Without having to sit down and make a whole layout! It's amazing!
At CHA Heidi gave me a card, so I just stuck it on the page that she wrote on and voila! So cool.
Don't forget about your favorite song lyrics for the quote areas! Music is such a huge part of my day to day life, I can't leave it out.
I'm not getting very artsy fartsy with my planner, maybe I will in the months where I don't have a lot going on? I had a lot to journal on this week so that's pretty much all it is. And you know what? That's perfectly fine if that's all you do. Do what works for you.
I put in a little card with a picture of Kyle in the ER in here, then filled it with more journaling, more private feelings type of journaling.
I love this striped envelope from the Capture 30 class! So cute!
The September Skies Stamp Set is one of my favorite sets ever, so I'm going to be using that in here alot!
I also laminated Heidi's Dream Flow Chart from the class, it's adorable.
So there's a lil tour of how I'm doing my Memory Planner, not too fancy but I'm getting all of my days documented and it feels sooo good. If I look back to just a week, it's like ohmygosh I had already forgotten things?! So crazy! Life is moving soo fast. One thing I remember hearing down the planner line was, "if you forget it, then it's like it never happened." Wow. Scary. There is way too much richness in our everyday lives to just let those moments slip by us. Write stuff down peeps!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Can't wait to see your planners make sure you tag us on Insty!
That cute little "today" wood veneer is sprayed with the "Ocean" Color Shine, and it comes in a little pack of 4, and there are a bunch of packs so you're definitely going to find the word you want :)
I wanted to play with some of Heidi's new Color Shine Colors, Ocean & Patina which are my new faves! They are sooo beautiful! I wanted to add a little color to the edges, but I wanted it to look kinda watercolory because it's a picture of the sea, so if you want this look this is what you do;
1. Grab a makeup sponge, and spray both colors next to each other down onto your craft mat.
2. Then spray one shot of water onto each Color Shine puddle.
3. Take your makeup sponge and dab into one color, then gently brush it over your edges.
4. Then take the same sponge, dab in into the other color and brush that over those same edges.
5. Voila! That's it!
Then if you want these watercolory droplets, this is what I do;
1. Spray Color Shine one time into the lid.
2. Spray a shot of water into that same lid.
3. Fling that onto a paper towel to get most of it out so you don't get a big glob onto your project (unless you want that of course!)
4. Fling the remaining mixture into droplets onto your paper. Just kinda flick your wrist and it should look like this;
I think the secret to keepin up with this class is to keep things simple, yet of course still add a little pizzazz to it!
The glitter buzz words are the perfect thing to add a little sparkle! Another thing I like to keep on hand for my planners are gold paper clips, it's so easy to just clip something on and go!
I cannot wait to fill up my planner with all of my precious everyday moments! Remember, every day is a gift, there is no such thing as an "ordinary day!" Savor each moment!
I hope you have a blessed new year!!
