Hello crafty friends, it’s Lucile! Today, I am here to tell you all about my latest album I’ve created. Documenting memories is so important to me! I love using my memory planner and project life to collect memories. But I always create an album in the month leading up to my birthday. I absolutely love this time of year! Aside from it being my birth month, I enjoy the weather and the blooming flowers. Of course I had to create my colorful and flowery album using Dear Lizzy’s Here and Now collection.
To make the cover of the album, I used two pieces of cardboard. Next, I covered them with paper from the collection. After that, I made a flexible binding to allow me to enlarge my album as I wish as I stuff it full of memories! Of course, I used floral paper. On the front cover, I stuck a card I cut out of the cardstock and matched it with the same flowers I used on the binding. For the final touch, I added a few gold stars.
I made an accordion-shaped binding. It’s a very simple binding that allows you to add as many pages as you want. I amused myself by varying the sizes and shapes of the pages. I found a die cut with a weekly layout and thought that was perfect for documenting a special week!
What I like most about daily albums is being able to leave a place for journaling to write down my anecdotes and memories of everyday life. So I created several covers throughout my album to be able to slip my journaling there as the month goes by.
To organize my album since I will do it as the month goes by, I create sections for each day. Adding dates on each page helps me stay oriented and organized! In addition, it adds a decorative dimension to my pages.
I hope this album has given you some ideas for keeping your daily memories. I can’t wait to fill it with the beautiful embellishments from Dear Lizzy’s Here & Now collection and all my photos! See you soon with a new creation.
