Hi, It’s Lisa with you today.
I think as well as scrapbooking our lovely photos, it’s just as important to document conversations. I like to keep a notebook on me so I can jot things down. When we take a trip, I keep a full journal as I want to remember it all. Our kids grow up so fast, I want to capture as many moments as I possibly can.
There was one moment that really stands out to me on our trip last month to New York. It was quite special. When I received my April Kit, it was the first story that I told.
Although I didn’t photograph the actual moment, don’t let that stop you from documenting it.
This is how my page came together to tell my story.
I started off with 2 pieces of patterned paper from the April main kit. I trimmed off around the edges of the inner piece and stuck down to create a frame. I took 2 journal cards from the April DITL Kit and stuck them together. The top will form part of my title and the lower card is perfect to document the conversation with those 2 speech bubbles.
Totally loving the big alphas in the main kit, these were so perfect for my title. I used a little sticky tape to stick them in place and then added some fun pink staples. If you don’t have a long armed stapler, I really recommend one. I love using this on my projects.
I added a secondary title using the blue alpha stickers from the main kit and added some clear stickers from the DITL Kit.
I love the 2 thin rolls of washi in the DITL Kit. These are great for creating borders like this.
The sweet conversation from the child that showed no interest in going to New York and didn’t really want to go. To 2 days after arriving wanting to live there. I’m so pleased that I made a note of this. He was in total awe when we arrived and couldn’t stop looking up and around.
I’d snapped this photo from the taxi just moments before, so decided to use this. I like that it’s a little blurred. Kind of like NYC is in full speed. And don’t those colours just match this kit perfectly?!! Like it was meant to be!
And I love adding lots of fun details at the end. This is usually when my DITL Kit comes in handy.
So that’s it…..a moment that I never want to forget is now documented. I’m happy now.
Don’t forget to document your special moments and conversations….even if you don’t have a photo of that moment.
Love this! Love the big Hello NYC, washi frame and convo with Louis. Perfect!
I happen to be working on a NYC album at the moment and was totally inspired by your layout… thought you might like to see what I came up with! I still have to add the journaling on the bottom card — there are a couple of additional pages and I’m still figuring out which bits of journaling go where! — but here it is: https://www.instagram.com/p/BEjy47FlLiZQ3npJZz3-XKv_T1RIWElPUlouJQ0/
Love the inspiration here!!
