Memory Planner Magic with Marsha Farris

Hey, Elle’s Studio friends! This is Marsha, and I’m excited to be here today sharing a memory planner layout with you! For my project, I documented the first week of this month using the August 2022 kit and add-ons . This release was perfect for recording back-to-school activities for my youngest son!

I began the layout by stamping the dates with the Medium Hazel Stamp and black ink. This stamp has quickly become a favorite for my memory planning spreads! I then printed my photos and arranged them on the layout according to the date they were taken.

The teal Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers were great for adding mini titles to the page. I trimmed a portion of a journaling tag from the August Kit and added handwritten journaling to it. I enjoy including a mix of typed and handwritten journaling on my memory planner projects. 

Because I had several photos from the open house event at my son’s school, I chose to create a simple flip-up using patterned paper from the Adventure Paper Stack. This allowed for an additional photo from the day. Next, I stamped three tabs and words/phrases from the School Tabs Stamp, trimmed them out, and adhered them to the bottom of the flip-up photos. I love how this interactive element turned out! To finish the left side of the layout, I included die cuts from the August Kit and Notebook Die Cut Shapes to add a bit of interest to the page.  

For the right side of the spread, I added light blue ink to the edges of a star from the Notebook Die Cut Shapes to help it stand out from the white background. I then added stamping to the die cut using the School Tabs Stamp and the Medium Hazel Stamp. The Lost in a Good Book Cardstock Stickers and A Good Book Stamp were perfect for documenting the book I am currently reading. I loved the little bookshelf and books stickers and just had to include them on the page.

At the bottom of the layout, I created another mini title using the teal Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers and included labels from the Teal Cardstock Label Stickers. I backed one of the photos with a patterned paper from the The Best Paper Stack. To complete the spread, I added a few stars from the Puffy Star Stickers to provide additional color, texture, and interest on the page.

I have enjoyed sharing this fun memory planner layout using the August kit and extras! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Happy creating!
