Hi friends! It’s Michelle, and I’m happy to be here today sharing a few pages from my memory keeping journal using the beautiful November 2022 Kit and add-ons. I love using my monthly kit and stamps in a memory keeping journal because of how much free creative fun you have—it is such a neat way to use your stamps and monthly kit outside of pockets. Today I’m sharing a layout from a week in October when the weather was so crisp and cool and I started by pulling out shades of aqua blue and green from my monthly kit and add-ons.

I couldn’t wait to start this week with that beautiful “October” script die cut using the 2023 Month Die Cuts. That font is so beautiful and I am super excited about using these in both my memory journal and pocket page album! I chose the fun December Grid Stamp using black ink for my days of the week. The font of these numbers is equally amazing and this stamp has quickly risen to my fav stamp list. I wanted to tuck in a few hidden mini photos and notes and I started with selecting multiple bits from the Labels, Ledgers and Tabs Die Cuts while using a series of stamps, the Christmas Phrases Stamp and Open Here Stamp. I added a sweet star sticker from the Magical Memories Cardstock Stickers.
I made an accordion flip of 5 photos and adhered a die cut with a stamped sentiment. I used the , Sincere Sentiments Wonderful You Stamp to stamp a fun, large sentiment and used the coordinating Alphabet Metal Die to accent the outlines.
I continued with the theme of using die cuts attached to hidden photos and stamping sentiments. I framed a favorite photo of the autumn evening sky using the Holiday Frame Stickers and added a die cut from the November 2022 Kit with more stamped sentiments. I used the Thankful Die Cuts to add a little journaling and further stamp play with the Icon Tab Stamp.
One of my fav pocket tags in November Kit was an aqua note 3 x 4-inch tag. I trimmed it down and added a stamped sentiment and a pull-out die cut behind from the Labels, Ledgers and Tabs Die Cuts for added journaling.
I had so much fun documenting another week in our life with this release! Get out your kits and stamps and let your only goal be to have free creative play documenting your days!
