Memory Planner – June Pages

Kim Jeffress for Heidi Swapp Memory Planner

I love recording my family’s memories! Don’t you?  Recently as a teacher I went to a teaching conference and attended a seminar from a well known Neuroscientist -He talked about the brain and memory! As he was talking his words ” We are what we remember” resonated with me! Wow that is so true! I have always been a memory keeper but now I think it is doubly important to capture and record my family’s stories both big and small… I for one do not want to forget! Do you ?

To record our everyday memories this year I am using the Time Flies Memory Planner.  It has spaces for creative thinking, pockets to slide in photos and a calendar to record the dates of the events. Really it couldn’t be any easier. Let me share with you how my June pages came together.

I love the start of each month begins with a prompt page, a place to work on during the month with lessons learned and events that are special.

I work on this page as the month progresses adding things in that are important to me, photos and sometimes memorabilia too. I added that Never Give Up card from the 3×3 cards from the Memory Planner cards pack. I also trimmed down one of the notes from the Notepad kit to fit under my bottom photo.

Even though it was not Father’s Day here in Australia this month ( in Australia it is in September) I wanted to celebrate my husband and my boys  so I printed off one of the free cards Heidi shared earlier this month ( found here ), reducing the size then trimming it to fit the 4×6 plastic pocket. I punched my photo into a 4 inch circle and laid it over the card.

I trimmed down one of the Clear Dividers from the Planner Collection  into a banner shape and attached it over the pocket page with a clip for a fun interactive element to my page.

Turning the page you find the back of the pocket page and then the calendar page on the right.

I love adding stickers directly onto the plastic to add titles to each pocket. I even trimmed one of the heart notepads slightly to attach to the pocket as well. I embellished with the Glitter Alphabet stickers from the Memory Planner Collection.

Finally the Calendar page is the last piece to the Planner  puzzle. I add to this as the month progresses. Adding my journaling and  photos (which I print small on my printer then trim further to fit into the grid design). I finish with stamping using the Clear Stamps from the collection and Memory Planner Stickers. I love all the pops of color these create. I don’t fill in every day on the Calendar page. Only occasions and events that I want to remember —-> Who wants to remember they did the washing right?!
