Simply Memory Keeping

January 26, 2019

Today I am going to share with you a couple of very simple Memory Keeping pages.  I know that when I first started to create pages, it took me ages to add the photos, embellishments and ribbons etc.  I would spend anything up to a week, moving the pieces and adding and taking away embellishments.  I finally realised that it’s the photos that are the star of the page not what you add.  Sometimes, you need to add something in the way of an embellishment but not always.  Today’s pages do not have any embellishments as the photos speak for themselves.  The first page is of the cruise through Katherine Gorge we took on our trip to Darwin.  The scenery is just so beautiful I didn’t think it needed anything more than a little information about where we were and what we did, and the date, of course.  I love the photos of the family swimming in the gorge.  A never to be forgotten experience.  I placed my photos (all 4″ x 3″) onto a Very Vanilla 12″ x 12″ page.  I cut the title from Crumb Cake card using the Little Letters Thinlits Dies (retired, but I find these dies are so often just the right size for my memory keeping).  The journaling was created on my computer and printed onto Very Vanilla card which is attached to Crumb Cake card before being attached to the page.

The second page shows some photos from the War Cemetery at Adelaide River.  Again the photos are all that is necessary to recall our visit to this beautiful place which commemorates the ultimate sacrifice by so many from Darwin and surrounds during WWII.  This time the photos are attached to Early Espresso card and then a 12″ x 12″ Whisper White page.  The title is hand written onto a pocket card which is not Stampin’ Up! using one of our journaling pens.

So you see Memory Keeping doesn’t need to be time consuming or even very costly.  I know that when my family and I look at these pages, we will be flooded with memories of our visits to these special places.  I hope this inspires you to get more of your photos onto pages that can be shared and admired by your family and friends.

Bye for now,

Kris
