Memory File for a Brand New Baby

In honor of the last day of National Scrapbook Month, and just making it in the nick of time, I created this memory file for a brand new baby of a good friend. This has turned out to be one of my favorite memory file mini albums to date. I was able to use so many techniques on each and every page. Every page is not double sided but I am okay with that. You're able to use those pages for journaling, extra photos or even baby trinkets.

Pocket pages for this memory file add some more dimension along with a few instaframes. I love the tags and the polyester ribbon sprayed with blush and pink color shine.  Below, I disassembled the photo stack and layered it horizontally in the memory file.

Above I used some layering with the borders using the techniques Heidi showed in her My Craft Channel segment when she made her memory file. I used a lot of techniques from this episode. She is a well of information and I am an avid believer that you can never learn too much. Do what you can to use your talents.

I took my Cinch and an old wood album, punched it, then added it in. I was hesitant to try it but to my surprise, it worked! I love how it turned out for this memory file. I used the same pink and blush color shine combo then stencilled a seafoam butterfly over the top. Since the wood is so porous, I used my heat gun to hurry it up a bit.  I added some lace ribbon along the spine and some tags over a scrap piece of paper. I found these cute mini craft envelopes in the dollar bin at Target and felt it was the perfect addition.


I love the collaboration of all these colors. It's the perfect mix for a brand new baby, everyday cards or shabby chic scrapbooking. Clearly, I am a Heidi fan and her memory files, but there are also so many other lines that are great. I love to get my hands on things that extend my creativity that I can showcase to others.
