Here is what we covered:

  • What is a Memory Journal:
    • It is a collection of pages, typically smaller in size than traditional 12×12 scrapbooking, dedicated to a collection of your memories.
      • My recommendation is a 6×8 or smaller format.
    • It is more finite in scope than traditional scrapbooking.
    • It can be a collection of your memories from daily life (replaces memory planners, project life, etc.), travel, tribute, daily journals, special occasions, adventures, etc.
    • There is no right or wrong way to do a memory journal, it is uniquely yours and needs to fit your needs and time availability.
  • What are the parts of a Memory Journal:
    • Beginning:  Typically there will be a cover page and maybe a calendar or both
    • Middle:  This will be the bulk of your Memory Journal
    • End:  Do you want to have a summary page or some type of closure to this journal?  For my daily Memory journal, I like to do a Currently wrap up for the month.
  • What do I need for a Memory Journal – I showed my typical “kit” that I use for my month long Memory journal, it changes each month:
  • Sources of Inspiration for smaller pages
    • Page Maps by Becky (Fleck) Moore – www.pagemaps.com
      • Look at both PageMaps & CardMaps
  • We started our journal by using a CardMap from Becky’s July CardMaps to layout and gather ideas for cover page.
