Minc it Monday Meets My Memory Planner
I love my Memory Planner! As we near the end of 2018 I am so thankful I have all my family’s stories both big and small, safely stored in my Memory Planner. Recently it was my son’s 12th birthday and we had a few fun surprises for my son, luckily for me I had my phone on hand and was able to record all of them and now I am able to celebrate them in my planner!
His birthday celebrations began with a fun rocket filled birthday party…
and then moved onto the big surprise of his present -a Lego Saturn V rocket that he thought he was saving his pocket money for but in fact we were planning on buying it for him all along!
I wanted to celebrate his special birthday in my planner so I created a special clear divider page with my Minc!
I love that I can take it in and out of my planner as needed!
and still have the stories of his birthday stored forever in my planner!
Let me share how easy it was to create my clear planner divider!
Find and cut out a birthday cut file from the Silhouette online store. I cut mine with American Crafts white cardstock. I then went ahead and painted the cut file with some of the Minc Reactive paint and allowed it to dry completely!
I then grabbed some of the Teal and Silver Ombre Minc foil and ran the cut file through my Minc.
I then took one of the Minc Laminating sheets , placed the foiled cut file in the centre of the laminating sheet and ran it through the Minc machine again!
The cut file is now safely enclosed inside the laminating sheet. I then trimmed the laminated sheet to the same size as the pages of my Memory Planner.
I then used my We R Memory Keepers Planner Punch Board to punch holes into the left side of the clear sheet.
Finally I used the We R Memory Keepers File TAB punch to punch a scrap of pattern paper and stapled it to the side of the clear divider!
I love how my foiled divider creates a celebration in my planner but still allows me to see the photos and stories underneath.
You can find the minc, foil and laminating sheets at your local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store!
