memory file + custom page protectors = 29 newborn photos in 1 fab project!
It’s Wednesday which means that today debuts a new episode of ‘Create to Remember’… and I’ll be honest, it’s a little TRICKY! And while the concept is a little tricky to understand, it’s SO COOL and a really fun way to add MORE photos, MORE memories and MORE memorabilia into a memory file!
This week I show you how to sew some basic sheet protectors right into a Memory File to create extra pages, and little photo-sleeve compartments! In this week’s episode, you will see how I added 2 12×12 sheet protectors :
- I cut to 10×12 and folded in half vertically; I cut and sewed a line horizontally that ultimately created 4 different pockets/compartments for 4×6 photos.
- I simply folded in half vertically to create 2 ‘pages’, 6×10”.
You might need to watch twice to catch it… but it’s SO awesome! You have to try it!
This is my new little nephew- so sweet! I filled this Memory File project with photos that were taken in the first week or so of his little life I always LOVE to look back and how tiny they were! That part is TOO short!
I used a Color Magic Memory file, and decorated the front cover with Color Magic Banner Delights (I love to layer and mix these!) and I added one photo to the cover as well. I used my ‘electric blue’ glimmer mist mixed with French Vanilla chalkboard to tone it down a little. I added some Tattered Angels ‘gravel’ chalkboard to one of the 12×12 papers to use for the inside pages.
Between the ½ file folder, and sheet protectors on the inside… I was able to add 29 photos! I still plan on adding some dates, weights and other info…
… make pretty stuff!
