First, we were encouraged to sift through our Cultural Memorabilia Box to find evidence of a favorite retail destination. I had several tags from one of my favorite clothing retailers, Coldwater Creek, in my box and decided to use those on a layout with photos of me wearing some of my favorite jackets - all of which came from Coldwater Creek!
The next inspiration email encouraged us to flip through our Storage Binders, pull out a set of photos, and create a quick layout. I used photos showcasing my birthday gifts from Robbie last year along with several pieces of memorabilia (including a piece of the wrapping paper, the label from my new Crocs, and a piece cut from the Kindle box) to complete this layout.
This next layout took a turn from Stacy's inspiration to use a black background to highlight some beautiful scenery photos. I started with a black cardstock background, but then used the front of a playbill and photos from our outing to see The Addams Family theatre production last year for this two-page layout.
However, I did include hidden journaling as Stacy suggested.
And, lastly, we were encouraged to look at our current routines and think about what we would miss if things changed. I started with a VERY old sheet of cardstock that's been in my stash probably 8 years (YIKES)! This red sheet had squares ready to punch out, so I punched them all out and adhered the sheet to white cardstock to use as a background.
I had some photos of our local library in my Storage Binders and decided it was time to scrap about the library and the book club I've attended there for the past six years. I pulled several bookmarks from the book club to use as well.
I included journaling on two Project Life cards, which I slipped into a clear pocket.
I'm enjoying the new inspiration emails in the LOM Community and using different aspects of my Library of Memories system to get our stories and photos scrapped! I especially enjoyed sifting through my Cultural Memorabilia Box and discovered inspiration for several other stories I want to tell soon. What's inspiring you lately?
