Memory Keeping in The Happy Planner

I am a documenter at heart, whether I express it through journaling, scrapbooking, or planning- EVERYTHING must be documented! All the big and small moments seem worthy enough for me to jot down. The Happy Planner PLUS Cocoa Daisy goodies make it so easy to document. First off, I love creating a dashboard every month for my Memory Keeping planner. This allows me to dip my toes into the kit and play around with some of the stamps, die cuts, and stickers.

I use a mix of the planner kits and the memory keeping pocket kit when I document in my Happy Planner. I always use the monthly dashboards as a starting point, cut the 12×12 papers to fit into my planner, and then add on all the extras!

Here you can see how I used the stamps in the Memory Keeping Pocket Kit along with the chipboard stickers.

In May Cocoa Daisy came out with the new sticker subscription and let me tell you, if you have not subscribed to them yet … I don’t know what you’re waiting for!! They are the perfect addition to any of the kits. On my tab, I used one of the stickers found in the new sticker subscription.

For my actual layout, I didn’t have much going on for the week I was documenting and really just wanted to highlight this one day. I used a 12×12 paper and covered the weekly layout to have a fresh start.

The flowers were fussy cut from another 12×12 paper to create a frame for my photos. It worked out perfectly for these photos since they were taken in a park! The colors paired so well together and made the black and white photos pop.

For my title, I cut the “laugh” out of a paper found in the Memory Keeping Pocket kit and also used the black alphas from that kit for the “loud”. The rest of the title is handwritten.

On the left side you can see the weekly grid and how I covered it up on the right side for my layout!

Happy memory keeping and be sure to share your crafty creations tagging Cocoa Daisy.

Until next time,

    I have never thought of using a full page in a Happy Planner as a platform for a scrapbooking layout. This is such a simple idea but absolutely genius! Thank you so much for sharing!

      Using a full page is one of my favorites if I don’t have a lot of photos. Glad you enjoyed it Simone!
