{ Real Life–Memory Keeping Monday Challenge }

I loved the challenge last Monday at Two Peas in a Bucket from Lisa Truesdell. She used a digital template that she cut with the Cameo and used as a layout. You know I trace and cut Digital Kits all the time. This challenge was perfect for me.

This is the kit I used. All these are 4x6 cards and perfect for project life. I traced the bottom left one in the first row and cut it out. This set comes with a PDF file so you can print them out.


I measured the slots and printed my photos to fit in those spaces. The actual cut size is 4x6 on my page. I love it. I make sure I save the file in my library so I can use it again.

I used April Studio AE – Hello Routine stamp set and Tree-Mendous stamp set from Technique Tuesday.
I cut the little arrows/chevrons by hand and stitched them to the page with my sewing machine.

I am using new My Mind’s Eye papers and embellishments. The green washi tape is from Heidi Swapp. I sneaked in some really old 7 gypsies stickers and Jenni Bowlin journaling tag (the one with a star peeking at the top left).

I have been creating new Silhouette Studio Files like crazy (if you follow me on Instagram you know)! I would like to use them before I share them! I have a layout coming up and some free files with them. There might be an arrow or two. Oh, and I can make hearts!
