I’ve always been a memory keeper! Whether it was scrapbooking or pocket page albums I love to get our adventures down. For the past two years I’ve been using the Daisy Dori for my memory keeping. It’s been so freeing being able to scrapbook on such a small portable scale. Flipping through these books gives me the chills. I love that I have all our memories down and my kids can look at them in the future.
I love to go with the flow when it comes to memory keeping. Sometimes I write more and sometimes I simply put down photos. I love to see how it has evolved over the past two years! I’m going to share some of my more recent layouts below.
Sometimes it may seem like you don’t have anything to journal about, but even the every day will be fun to read when you’re older. I thought these two photos kind of went together since one was my Star Wars cup and the other was my husband trying the new virtual reality game. It may be fun to look back on these and see when virtual reality was new and exciting. Who knows where it may be in 20 years!
For this next spread I made it more of a scrapbook page! I used some beautiful star paper and grabbed some of the gold stars from my new December kit to make it shine. I used the moon with the stardust stamp above my little girl’s head to look like it was putting her to sleep. This picture didn’t need any journaling, it really spoke for itself.
I also love to use journaling cards in my layouts! Its a great way to hide private journaling or simply to add more photos than you have space for. They add a nice background for your picture and some of them are just too cute not to use!
Sometimes I need extra space to keep notes or cards or extra bits of memorabilia. I made this pocket for the back of my Daisy Dori by cutting a piece of scrapbook paper to fit. I glued the edges and it’s the perfect spot for a thank you card from my friend.
However you do it, I think getting your memories down on paper is so important! Whether you enjoy only writing or having a little fun with scrapbook paper and embellishments, make sure you get them down somewhere! I hope I gave you some new ideas and sparked your creativity!
