These pages are much simpler than yesterdays memory book pages. They can be used as place holder pages or photo pages. Your choice.
Keeping the Colors Straight with Different Color Schemes
When we started this memory book, I suggested you choose your color palette.
The download files use four basic colors, white, pink, blue and purple. I suggest you keep them consistent throughout the whole project so I developed my method to keep them straight. When working on the purple or brown color scheme pages, I took a little piece of all four colors (white is white) and wrote on them which color they represented. This way if I am doing a page on a different day, I can remember what I was doing.
Choosing the Paper
I selected three different color palettes and everyday I will show the pages in all three. The paper doesn’t have to be heavy, 65 lb weight will do. I wouldn’t use patterns except for the pink page base. The parts in some colors are just too small.
Cutting the Final Memory Book Pages
These pages are fairly easy to cut. Some of the pieces are small and intricate so be careful taking them off the mat.
I used a black pen for all the drawing. If you choose another color just make sure it shows up on your color palette.
The camera page and the hearts page can be used for pictures. I wasn’t using them for pictures so I put foam tape under some of the embellishments to give them some dimension. The corners on the heart page need foam tape if you are going to use them to hold a photo.
To put it into the Memory Book glue it to the inside cover or to a white base page. Make sure you glue it as far in as you can to cover the writing (Xs and Os) if you are gluing it to a base page.
