A Peek inside my Memory Keeping Planner

Hey loves! I’m popping in today to give you all a peek inside my memory planner. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen one of the weekly memory keeping layouts I’ve completed in my Happy Planner. Then I thought–how about a memory planner flipthrough!

A memory planner flipthrough of Nov 2016 to June 2017

In the years since I’ve discovered scrapbooking, I have always struggled with keeping up with my everyday documentation. I tried traditional 12×12 layouts but most of my photos are from my iPhone. Project Life seemed like a better alternative but it still ended up being more demanding than I anticipated.

Still, I’ve always wanted a way to document our everyday life. Enter memory keeping in my Happy Planner! I use a regular sized Happy Planner to document our weeks so I use an app called PicFrame to size my photos to a 2×2 collage and use my Canon Selphy to print them.

Depending on what happened during the week, I might have a ton of photos or I might have only a few. Either way, I love pasting in all my photos and choosing the perfect stickers to call attention to the highlights of the week.

As you can see, I love using the Mambi Sticker Packs (I have about a half dozen of their mega pack line) as well as other scrapbooking stickers I have in my stash.

For my journaling, I either jot down the highlights of each day in my regular planner or I use the Day One app to record what happened that day. Then, ideally, at the end of the week, I print out my photos and start putting together a spread.

I’m currently a wee bit behind (courtesy of our big news + no more Selphy paper) but because of the format, it’s super easy for me to catch up. As of this post, I have a few months of 2016 and most of the first half of 2017 completed. If you’d like to take a look at my pages, check out my memory planner flipthrough below.

Let me know if you’d like to see how I create my weekly pages.
What do you use to document your everyday life? I’ve noticed on Instagram that a ton of my fellow bloggers scrapbook/memorykeep in some way and I’d love to see the things you create!

    I love this idea! I saw other people doing this a couple weeks ago and I think it will be a fun thing to add for next year!

  • This is so beautiful! I love this idea so much!

  • I was literally just thinking about starting one of these today! Primarily because I saw a cute little printer. I’ll have to go search for the printer post I saw before, but I just searched the Selphy on Amazon and they print on sticker paper? That might be the way to go!

  • This is a cute idea!
