Memory Keeping & Project Life
I hold a class once a month on Friday night for Memory Keeping. I create a page and give the ladies who attend all the supplies needed to recreate the page. They can make the page as I have done, change it around completely or use the pieces elsewhere in their memory keeping. The idea of the class is that everyone can bring their own projects to work on and I get to make time to create some pages myself. I also give the ladies who attend a pocket page to use however they wish. We have a great time with lots of laughs, shared memories and generally just have fun (of course we get lots done too). I like to have something so that we can share a light supper as well. Anyway, this is the page I created for this month’s class which is being held on Friday night the 24th. I still have a couple of spots left if you are interested in attending. More details can be found on my Classes and Workshops page.
For the page this month I decided to use the new Project Life Paper Clips Thinlits Dies. I cut three 4″ squares from Basic Black card using the die in this great set. I embossed one using the Chevron Embossing Folder and one using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. I added 3-3/4″ square of Whisper White card with rounded corners to the last one. I used some retired Designer Series Paper from the Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack to create the last square. I wanted to keep the background simple because I think the photo of the beautiful sunset at Karumba needs to be the focus of the page. I added a layer of Crushed Curry card behind the photo and used the same card stock to cut the little paper clips. I just love these little paper clips, such a simple way to add some decoration without fussing too much. I used the 0.01 Project Life Journaling Pen to hand write my memories of this photo. The title is cut from Basic Black card using the Little Letters Thinlits Dies. Of course, everyone will be able to create their own title and choose their own designer series paper and accent card stock. I love this simple layout, a great way to use your Project Life products and incorporate 12 x 12″ pages into your Project Life Memory Keeping.
I’d love to hear what you think. Do you use Pocket Pages combined with 12 x 12″ pages in your Memory Keeping?
Bye for now,
