Memory Planning with Frost & Frolic

Hello, friends!

We love planning. We love memory keeping. So, naturally, we LOVE memory planning! Join us as our Creative Team combines two paper crafting favorites in one format!

First, Christine gives us a few tips and tricks with her Memory Planning system that you don’t want to miss!

 

 

Jennie McGarvey: Discbound Daisy Planner

 

I’m in love with the Frost & Frolic Collection and I was so excited to use it in my memory planner. I sat down to create and I really wanted to be creative with it. At first, I was a little nervous I was putting too much pressure on myself, lol! However, once I got started, I had so much fun!
After I added my photos, I started by adding a huge stamped cluster that I envisioned. It was anchored by stamping out the word December using the versatile General Store Alpha Stamp Set. I used a stamp set from my stash to add the 12 and then stamps from the Frost & Frolic Modern Memory Keeping Kit to add the accents. I absolutely love how it turned out!

I had absolutely NO events to add thanks to illness [BOO!] but I had lots to journal so I included fun rub-on accents and plenty of journaling. I love using Mildliners to include lines for my journaling. This light blue Mildliner from the Frost & Frolic Planner Add-On Kit was so perfect for this – not only does it match perfectly – but it’s light enough to show my journaling well.

I’m so excited by how this week turned out in my Daisy Planner – it’s exactly how I hoped it would be! Cute and fun thanks to the Frost & Frolic Collection.

Renee Senchyna: Horizontal Bound Planner

This month’s Frost & Frolic Collection was so fun to work with; it has so many cute winter-themed elements. The color palette is the perfect mixture of pinks, reds, and blues. I think my favourite elements from all of the kits are the photo frames!

To create this layout I started out by selecting and printing all of my photos. Once they were all printed and arranged on the proper days I selected the cardstock stickers that I wanted to add as accents to my layout. They came from the Frost & Frolic Modern Memory Keeping Kit, the Frost & Frolic Traveler’s Notebook Memory Keeping Kit, and Frost & Frolic Planner Add-On Kit, and the Frost & Frolic Classified: Memory Keeping Kit.

I had more photos than space on Saturday so I created a simple flip to fit them all in with my journaling. I cut a piece of white cardstock to match the height and width of the 2 photos I wanted on top, I adhered both photos to the paper then scored a line between them and folded them to create a crease. I glued the left side of the cardstock to my planner, then flipped the cardstock over and added my journaling and the third photo underneath.
On Sunday I took one of the 4×6 filler cards from the Frost & Frolic Modern Memory Keeping Kit and cut it down to 3×3 inches and used my corner punch to round each of the edges. I added a piece of red striped washi from the Frost & Frolic Traveler’s Notebook Memory Keeping Kit along the left side of the card to add a bit of dimension. Once that was done I used clear tape along the top of the card to create a hinge, then added a tab from the Frost & Frolic Planner Add-On Kit at the bottom to help flip the card. I added more photos and journaling underneath.

Once the layout was complete I spelled out November using the letter stickers from the Frost & Frolic Memory Keeping Sticker Kit as well as the date circles.
