One Little Bird-January Memorydex

Hello!  I am beyond excited to be back for another year at One Little Bird!  I love creating pocket page scrapbooking spreads to share with you but for January I thought I would mix it up a little and share a new project for this year.

In december I received the Heidi Swapp Memorydex and then after seeing the beautiful new This Year collection and the 2017 Calendar Cards I knew I wanted to create a memory collection for this year.

To start creating the files I printed out a bunch of the patterned paper on card stock. I then used the memorydex dies to create the pages.  On a few pages with tabs I hung the die over the edge to leave the tab white.

I also printed out the This Year Journal Cards and cut them down to fit into the cute envelopes I created out of the patterned paper.

To document a few of the highlights this month I attached 2×2 photos and added a little journaling to the back of the cards.

I used the print and cut feature in Silhouette to create a bunch of little embellishments to add to the envelopes and other pages in the memorydex.

Here is a page by page flip through of some of my favorite pages I created.

For the title card I added the “Year” word art along with the “Time for a change” label on top of a white acrylic “2017” from Elle’s Studio.

I added the January calendar card with an adorable mint puffy heart as one of my first pages to mark the month of memories.

Here I added a little photo of me thinking about what resolutions I wanted to consider for this year.  On the back of the card I documented my goals.  I just adore that mint color!

On this card I layered the “goal” word art over a label with dimensional adhesive then stapled to lined paper.  I added the photo to the left side so I could document my feelings about this goal my husband & I have for this year.

One of my favorite parts of this little project is the little envelopes full of memories.

I love the little cards with small photos!  Can you even take all the cuteness!?

For a few of the cards I simply added a label so throughout the month I could add my thoughts and memories.

This journal card was just too perfect not to include. I just punched the memorydex holes on the bottom of the card and slid it in!

To this card I added a sweaty gym selfie along with some “fresh start” word art layered on top of a tag.  This mix of grey and mint is perfection!

For this tab I added an acrylic piece from Color Cast designs.  Another perfect sentiment, Just Breathe…progress over perfection.  So important to remember this when I get over whelmed with life! Just breathe…

Another adorable envelope.  I love the beautiful flowers.

To end January I added another envelope to add my final reflections and thoughts for the month.

I loved putting together this beautiful project.  The colors are just magical and speak to new beginnings and a fresh start.  I can’t wait to document my whole year in this memorydex and capture and document the highlights of my family’s memories.

Thanks for stopping by today!
