Pocket pages for your Memory Planner

Hello crafty friends, One of my favourite things to do in my Memory Planner is to use all the photos.

I’ve heard it’s apparently ideal to choose one or two for each day to showcase the highlights, but I rarely can do this.

My memory planner is used to capture my family’s everyday moments – from what we are cooking to events we attend.

A great way to capture a lot of these photos is using The Happy Planner page protectors.

I have purchased mine from The Travelers Notebook. You too can get a 10% discount by using my code DTSARAH at https://thetravelersnotebookonline.com/search?q=Planner+page+protectors

The page protectors, or pocket pages as I like to call them come in a variety of configurations, suited to 4×6, 3×4 and 2×2 inch photos. They are pre punched so easily slip on to the discs in your Happy Planner.

They of course don’t only need to be used in your memory planner – the page protectors are perfect for your every day planner, budget planner, wellness planner or whatever really.

I hope you will give this idea a go in your planner! I’d love to see how you use these pocket pages!

Thanks for stopping by! Until next time….


My new tool…why you need a Happy Planner punch

Hello crafty friends, I just had to share another of my new loves…yes, I seem to have many now a days…lol!

The Me and My Big Ideas Happy Planner punch is a game changer. I am using this in my Memory Planner as well as my wellness planner.

Regardless of what size or what Happy Planner you use, this is amazing! I have many photos (too many to scrap and lots more I include in my memory planner in a smaller size) but I can’t resist printing some in a 4×6 format.

Sure, some will be framed and put on our photo wall but there are others I just want to see as I flip through our yearly family memory album.

In addition to my Happy Planner box punch (the pink one pictured above – I adore this also for punching paper, photos and stickers for the Happy Planner boxes), this punch is ideal for creating your own planner pages.

The blue punch is sized for the classic planner and can also be used for the mini size.

Despite using the Big planner for memory keeping, you can also use it for this size if you move up and align the holes for the larger page size.

The punch is so easy to use. I adhere two photos back to back and then place it in the punch, evenly spacing the punch holes.

Pressing down on the lever, it gives me a crisp punch every time.

You can then pop it in the discs of your planner, as seen in the opening photo.

This is fantastic for including memorabilia such as invitations, flyers, appointment cards etc in your planner. How about using it for the kids pictures or drawings you want to keep?

Game changer in how easy it is to keep those memories all in one place!

How about creating your own planner dashboards, dividers and / or covers with your favourite patterned papers? Easy done with this punch.

2019 Wellness Planner set up

Hello crafty, planner friends! I’ve been busy setting up my 2019 Wellness Planner using the Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI) Wellness extension kit from The Travelers Notebook.

I’ll have a clip up shortly on my YouTube channel, but wanted to share some photos here of the monthly page (see below);

Here I will be tracking my daily steps, as one of my goals this year is to move more. Using the Fitbit watch I got for Christmas, this will help me keep track of what steps I take.

I will also be using sticker icons each day to track my vitamin intake, menstrual cycle, total hours slept and whether I get to bed by 10pm each night (not succeeding too well on that one yet!).

I have created a pocket on the back of one of the dividers to hold these stickers in the planner for easy, daily access.

I have also created a weight tracker and other goals pages using the MAMBI planner page inserts – you can find the range here at https://thetravelersnotebookonline.com/search?q=Planner+paper

Combined with the MAMBI memory keeping clear stamps, you can really make your planner what ever you need it to be! These stamps can be found online at https://thetravelersnotebookonline.com/products/new-me-and-my-big-ideas-memory-keeping-clear-stamp-74pc-cls-05

The Travelers Notebook have a huge range of planner stamps and stickers – I must warn you though, they are addictive! The sticker range starts here https://thetravelersnotebookonline.com/search?q=Planner+stickers

Live the Life You Love for Memory Maze Lasercuts


Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with you today for Memory Maze Lasercuts to share a double 6X8 scrapbooking layout I completed our latest visit with friends to the gorgeous Wilsons Promontory here in Victoria.

To create this layout, I used a 6×8 inch paper pad of Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Midnight collection, available from The Travelers Notebook. I tore, cut and layered a number of the beautiful papers under the photos and I embellished it with some pieces from the Mermaid seaside chipboard 12×12 inch sheet from Memory Maze. Available at this link – http://www.memorymaze.com/product_info.php?products_id=21009&osCsid=1cs282nkdokrs0saeavd5039v6 I painted some Dina Wakley paint on to the chipboard and ink the edges with distress ink. Let’s take a closer look;

This is the chipboard set that can be found online at http://www.memorymaze.com/index.php?osCsid=1cs282nkdokrs0saeavd5039v6. I added some enamel dots from my stash and the layouts were done.

I just love that Memory Maze chipboard is so thick and versatile to allow for any type of embellishing – paints, inks, gesso, embossing etc. To take a closer look at each page check out the Memory Maze blog at https://memorymazedesign.blogspot.com/

If you are interested in any of the Memory Maze products, be sure to contact your local craft store or the Memory Maze website for your local stockist where they can place their local sales reps in contact with you.


More Cocoa Vanilla Studio love….

Hello crafty friends, today I have another layout to share with you using the Midnight Collection – Cocoa Vanilla Studio 12×12 die cut. Have you seen this beauty?

This is a 12×12 inch die cut adhered to a background with this stunning patterned paper background.

For this layout, I cut it in half and trimmed it to be a bit smaller than 6×8 to fit my layout.

I layered the die cut on to another piece of paper from the 6×8 pad and fi her painted some ‘night’ Dina Wakley paint around the edges.

I matted my photo and added one of the cut apart pieces from the paper pad at the bottom right of the layout. I used the die cut words ‘Happy Days’ as the title.

Cocoa Vanilla Midnight for The Travelers Notebook

Hello crafty friends, I am excited to share with you today my new love…the Midnight collection from Cocoa Vanilla! These two layouts were created using the 6×8 paper pads and die cut words (see my previous post for my love of these paper pads!).

To further build upon the background of this layout, I splattered some Dina Wakley paint in ‘Blushing’ and ‘Night’ to compliment the existing colours.

I then layered my photo of my husband and myself with other papers and some pink tissue paper from my stash.

I used two of the cut apart labels, also from the paper pad and adhered the words ‘you + me’ as the title. A few enamel dots from my stash completed the layout.

Loved how this turned out!

The second layout I have for you today is a 6×8 pocket page spread. Again, I used the Midnight paper pad to created the cards and one of the cut apart pieces for shaker pocket.

These photos of my younger son are just so cute – we went to a local market and he was so happy to just sit amongst the animal farm, he was in his element!

The ‘Love’ title is a die cut as well as the cut apart labels on the layout. I used a flip up flap, added sequins and adhered this to one of the pockets. I included a photo on the under side so when you lift it up, there’s another gorgeous photo right there!

I added a few stickers and enamel dots from my stash and some washi tape to close off that flip up pocket. I also like to outline my cards with a black fine liner to add some marks.
