My journey into crafting began with Scrap booking, mostly documenting my baby's milestones. Over the years it has evolved to book binding and memory album making but I still journalise and document my Life.I follow fewer rules and have adopted to many styles over the period from 12x12 scrap booking layouts to Becky Higgins Project life.
This time I decided to document this day in my life with Heidi swapp Memory file folder scrap booking way. Though I haven't used her Memory file folder I have made my own inspired by her creation.
In Heidi swapp words -Memory File allows one to create a MEMORY EXPERIENCE. It’s an interactive collection of classic ‘office supply’ file folders, but pretty, that allows plenty of room for multiple photos and plenty of story telling.
Today I want to show you a classic approach to Memory Files. The possibilities are endless as to how one can create with said Files.
- I have used a 12x12 double sided pattern paper and given it a score at center 2" making the front smaller than the back and punched using my WRMK 1-2-3 punch.
- I have printed out the pictures from that day using my Canon Sephy printer.
- I have decorated the front cover with a 6x4 postcard picture and added stamped sentiments from technique Tuesday My Sun & Moon Stamp Set .
- The pattern paper used here is from Itsy Bitsy
- I have used coffee cup stickers from Itsy Bitsy
Inside the Memory file folder I have decorated with the events and pictures clicked as I have shown the close ups here.
I have used a sentiment stamp from MFT BB Somebunny - MFT Stamps set.
Over the end of the page I have created a pocket to hold the lovely tooth picks and coasters that added to the wonderful day out and memories of the place.
The paper nerd and and story teller in me really engages with telling so much of a weekend’s event in one place.
So, if you are like me…have lots of photos. A weekend trip? a story longer than can be found on a single page layout?
A Memory File approach may be just what you are looking for. Room for lots of photos. Room for lots of journaling. Room to get your story right where it needs to be. Filed away and at your finger tips.
Thanks for sending me so many messages and asking me how I create I have many ways of journaling and documenting tried and tested , hoping to share those here soon. . I shall soon start making some process tutorials to if you wish to know how I made this.
