"Back to the Past" My Memories Notebook Spread | Valeska GuimaraesJun 29, 2022
Hello FJ friends,
Valeska here with you today, sharing my first spread in my new FJ My Memories Notebook. I love to create different ways of scrapbooking, and this notebook is perfect use for multiple photos and cards. For my first entry, I decided to use some photos of a beautiful day here in Braga. Every year in May, the people of the city celebrate a festival that they call “Braga Romana”. It's a return to the past of when Braga was a city of the Roman Empire. The city is full of people dressed in clothes that reflect how they used to dress in Ancient Rome. The festival includes stalls with food and pyrotechnics and music shows!
I chose papers from the beautiful Kayla collection. I stitched the papers on the edges, and also stitched one of the cards I used. I placed the main photo on my first page, decorated with Kayla Die Cut Shapes, pink enamels and green puffy alphabet from the Abigail collection. I love to use a lot of essentials in my projects, and this one is from Reese and matched perfectly with Kayla. The magic of FJ!
On the bottom of the second page, I placed three photos and decorated them with Kayla chipboard bits, the stamp “Here for this” on vellum and years in a tab using the Aspen stamp set (because I went to see Top Gun Maverick on the same day and this was also a back to the past for me!).
So I decided to make a vellum pocket which is the same size of my Kayla Journaling Card, and I backed it with the pink paper and also stitched around, leaving the top to hold my Kayla tag. I was so excited to use my Reese Blooms Metal Dies and this was the perfect opportunity. I made tulips using my pink and green papers and glued them on the bottom of my pocket.
Finishing my pocket, I stamped “anywhere with you” from Kayla’s stamp set and tied a Tiny Tag from Annie collection. I made my journaling by hand, telling what happened on this fantastic day!
I hope I inspired you to tell your story in a beautiful and simple way. Don't wait for the perfect time to write about your story, journal them every day, every week, every month. You'll love the result later. The FJ My Memories Notebook is perfect for it!
Thank you for stopping by and see you next month!
