Memories Made #1: Inbox Greetings
Welcome to a brand new scrapbooking tutorial series called "Memories Made with Jen Gallacher." In this series I'll pick a memory I want to include in my scrapbooks. Then I'll create the layout start-to-finish all while sharing some tips and tricks for using the papers, embellishments, and products I've chosen.
Be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel HERE to be notified of when I upload a brand new video. You don't want to miss out on any of these fun tutorials!
This week's memory: Email Conversations
My nine year old son has recently learned to email. It's adorable, and I certainly wanted to capture our very first conversation. To do so, I printed out our conversation on cardstock (eliminating any sensitive information including both his and my email addresses). This serves as the journaling for the page. Then I added a photo of him that I love and added papers and embellishments that help to tell the story. Here is the layout I created in today's video:
And here are some close-up photos of the completed layout:
You can watch the helpful, start-to-finish video tutorial HERE on my Youtube channel or below. Watch for ways to dress up die cut titles, tips on how to create a border strip with stamping, and so much more!
I will be creating both 8 1/2 x 11" and 12 x 12" layouts in this series; although, you can approach the layout process in the same manner. Below I've suggested the products you might consider when creating a similar layout (including the products used on this layout). If an item is out of stock be sure to search for similar items by using words like "red paper," or "speech bubble" to help you find exactly what you're looking for.
I'm looking forward to sharing some of my favorite memories with you, as well as, share my insider tips and tricks for documenting these special events. I hope you'll join in on the fun!
