January Memory Book

Melissa created this memory book using a preservation album with Holiday Cheer and Silver Valley papers and embellishments. It is a great way to keep up on scrapbooking. Write your journaling right after it happens, attach photos as soon as they are printed, record thoughts in the moment...

Melissa describes how she made it, "For the cover of this little mini book, I cut out a block of the woodgrain pattern paper to fit the front. I mixed together gesso and water and then splattered it onto the front. After letting this dry, I adhered the block onto the front of the mini album. I used one of the die cut shapes from 'Silver Valley' and typed my journaling onto it. I placed this on the front and then used a couple of other small tags layered behind it. I fussy cut out some shapes from another pattern paper and placed them in random places across the front. I finished it off by using some buttons and faux pearls to further embellish it. I will be using this small album in the month of January to record the memories of the first month of the new year!"
