Hello, everyone! It’s Aurélie here today to show you the memory planner layout I just created with the July kit and its add-ons. Truth be told, I can’t remember when I last worked in my memory planner. Yikes! But not to worry! With my trusty notes on hand and once my photo placement was figured out, my creative process came rushing back.

Looking back at my other memory planner layouts, I noticed that I always printed a few photos in black in white. That way, if there were different colors in the photos than the collection I was using, I didn’t have to worry about it. However, when I looked at the photos I chose for this layout, I quickly realized that I would print all of them in color! A first for me! They all perfectly matched the colors of this month’s kit and its add-ons!
This particular week of 2021 was the last of the Tokyo Summer Olympics last summer and I wanted to remember the biggest moments of the Canadian team. As Layle Koncar has said many times in her in-person classes and in her lives, “Google is my friend!” I found this great photo online of Andre de Grasse, an amazing Canadian track and field athlete who won many medals during the event, and I knew I wanted to add it to my layout.
Some days, there’s just not a whole lot to jot down in my notes to transcribe in my memory planner layouts. So, I made the most of a few of the July 2022 Kit tags, the Teal Jane Alphabet Cardstock Stickers and a July 2022 Printable to cover up white space on my layout.
One last thing: When you need a bit more room to tell your story, create flips and flaps like I did. See them? Some are for extra stories I wanted to tell and others are for stories I wanted to keep more private.
