Documenting February . . . and a Freebie

So this is my second month using our 12" x 12" Divided Page Protectors to document my life and I can’t tell you how much I am loving it!!! It feels so good to get these memories down before I forget them and to get these pictures that I love so much printed and in an album. Now I just need a gazillion more hours in the day to do this for all my pictures and memories.

For my February pages I used MDS2 a ton to make cards and to journal on my photos. This month I was a little sparse on photos so I didn’t need to add an extra insert. For most months I think I will add an insert for more pictures and journaling (that I have made by cutting up our page protectors—as I did for my January pages), but I did sew in a small 4" x 6" insert for an extra picture and some journaling. I made the 4" x 6"  insert by cutting up one of the divided page protectors that had a 4" x 6" pocket with the opening on the top. I added a little tab to the insert by sewing on a small piece of Basic Gray/Basic Black 1-1/4" Two-Tone Ribbon. I really love how the arrow clip from Hung Up Cute Clips looks on my journaling card. For the cute photo of my dog, Bono, I used a really fun app called Instant: The Polaroid Instant Camera. I’m sure you will see a lot more Polaroid photos on my pages to come.   

I am so excited about the new MDS downloads that just came out, Happy Things Pocket Cards. These journaling cards and filler cards are so awesome!!! They are the perfect size for the Stampin’ Up! page protectors. 

Here is the link: 

I can’t wait to use them.

This month I want to spread the love, so three of the cards that I designed for February are available as a free download. Go here to pick them up: 

You really have to try this awesome way of memory keeping. It is so fun and so addicting. I know you will love it as much as I do!
