Round Trip Memory Planner Spread  


It's Jennie and it's definitely time for another week in my memory planner and it's a simple one!




This is my seventh year in a memory planner, so I'm pretty good at navigating what I like and what works in a planner of this size.  I knew with all the photos I wanted to include, plus the journaling, I needed to keep the decorations simple.  Luckily, the Maggie Holmes Round Trip Ephemera was going to work just fine.




After adding my photos, I started by creating the first cluster in the lower right hand of the right page.  This was going to set the tone for the layout and I was excited by how it all came together.  The frame serves as the background of my cluster, the circle is the anchor and the beautiful pennant is the perfect accent.



Now, on the left-hand side, we have two clusters, both of which highlight the travel done this week.  I started in the lower right-hand corner because it was so easy to pair together the taxi and label.  It's like they were made for each other. The flower was a last minute addition, and I am honestly pretty happy with it as it represents the spring and beautiful flowering trees and plants we saw on our trip.



This cluster is just so fun and unexpected.



Now, the top left introduces you to the theme of the layout right away with the suitcases and large airplane die cut.  I was so excited to have it all work together and so beautifully!



All I had to do now was add some journaling [okay, a lot of journaling!] and the plans for the week and I've got a memory planner layout that documented this week beautifully.  Have you tried memory planning yet? Would you use ephemera to document your week?

Mini Tag Accordion Album  


Hello, Aadhira here! Today I am sharing my new design team project using Simple Stories' 'Hearth and Home' Collection. I used the tag sheet from the collection to create a Mini Tag Accordion Album.





The tag sheet is double sided which was perfect to make the album. One side had quotes and whereas the other side had check patterns. I used chipboard stickers and ephemera to embellish the album.



To create this tag accordion album all you have to do is take a tag sheet and then fold it in a zig-zag way. It's super easy and simple.



Hope you get some inspiration from this project. 

Happy crafting!




Aadhira Sambasivan

I am Aadhira, from India. Paper Crafting has always been my passion from a very young age. The idea to turn my passion into my small business was very random and I am happy that I did follow my passion. The social media platforms made it super easy for me to build and grow my business.

I love creating albums (especially mini albums), cards, 3-d projects, and scrapbooks layouts. My style is mostly colorful but I do love vintage crafting too. I love to read, travel, and of course craft! Scrapbooking is one of the best ways to document happy memories. I can't wait to get started!
