More Memory Keeping

April 24, 2017

Today I am going to share with you a scrap page I made using the Moments Like These Project Life Card Collection.  I had three photos of Ethan playing the cello at his very last band performance.  Ethan loves music but he just wanted to play the guitar and his teacher wasn’t appreciative of his efforts to make the cello work like a guitar!  Anyway he has since left the band but I wanted to preserve this memory.  I printed my pictures (not fabulous but I can still see Ethan) at 3″ x 4″ size and matted them onto Whisper White card 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  I selected three 3″ x 4″ cards from the Moments Like These Card Collection and attached them to Cajun Craze card 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  The photos and cards are attached to Basic Black 12″ x 12″ card, which will soon be available to purchase as a pack of 12 sheets (yay).   I stamped the “you are” and “awesome” from the Marquee Messages stamp set onto one card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink to create the title for my page.  I stamped the guitar from the Country Livin’ stamp set onto Crumb Cake card using Early Espresso ink, cut it out and attached it to another card.  I also inked the “Rock Star” greeting from the Marquee Messages stamp set and stamped it onto the same card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The last card contains my journalling.

As you can see a really simple page, but I love that I can personalise the cards by using the stamps that I have on hand.  I know that sometimes the thought of preserving our memories can be daunting, especially these days when you might have hundreds of photos from the one event to choose from.  I like to keep it simple and I love combining simple pages like this with my pocket pages.   So don’t be put off by those amazingly talented people you see  sharing on the net, just share the photos and your thoughts and the memories will be restored.  My grandchildren love seeing my scrapbooks out, so that they can ooh and aah over the times we have shared.

I have been doing quite a lot of memory keeping lately and will have more pages to share with you over the coming weeks.

Bye for now,

Kris

    You make such beautiful memory pages, Kris; you’re inspiring me to try a little harder to try the pocket pages – of course taking a few more photos might help me!
