Good Afternoon and welcome to the Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls Blog Hop. This week we are sharing some lovely Memories & More Projects ..
Memories & More
I do love the Memories & More kits we have and really need to spend more time using them!
With today’s Technology of smart-phones and digital cameras these days its so much easier to snap a picture to remember what happened and share it with others we forget to record it for ourselves to look back on. It’s also faster and more affordable these days to print our photo’s. No longer do have to hand in a film, wait for a week (or pay extra for fast printing) and hope and pray the photo’s we took turned out or weren’t blurry or have any heads cut off! Now we can print quickly at a store or even print them at home or on the go with devices like the HP Sprocket or the Polaroid Zip Printer.
Having a Memories & More Album on the go it’s quick and easy to pop some pages together on the same day ‘it all happened’. Even while travelling – you can take your pics on your cruise or holiday, print them on your portable printer and then quickly slot them into the pocket pages and you are done – I really need to start doing this!
Here’s some pages I’ve done with the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card pack recently …
That photo in the top right is one taken with my Dad on New Year’s Eve in 2016. The photo on the bottom left is me visiting Port Fairy in November 2017. I started Weight Watcher’s in March so 9 months in and I was down 19.8kg! That’s 43.6lbs for my North American friends. I’m still going and losing more each month and loving the new lifestyle I’m creating! It’s amazing what a difference 9 months can make!
This is the layout I taught at a recent Weight Watchers Meeting. We all did a layout to show us how far we’d all come and those who were just starting did their page on their goals for their Weight Watcher’s Journey including their first ‘now’ picture. It’s a great way to record our mini goals along the way and celebrate them when we achieve them!
This is our Christmas Breakfast at the Art Gallery Cafe. I have made some wonderful friends through Weight Watchers and have become a lot closer to Sharon who I’m doing my journey with. We had an absolute ball at our Christmas Breakfast and regularly enjoy a coffee after the meetings as well.
Now this …
Exercise, in the past, is something I just wouldnt even consider. Having had fibromyalgia for 14 years it’s something that taking a 20 minute walk would put in pain for 3 days after so I just didnt do it. Now we’ve been going to Aquafit and look at us here – we are both smiling after our first session!
Memories & More Cards
The Memories & More cards arent just for Memory Keeping or Scrapbooking – they can be converted to greeting cards very easily and with a minimum of fuss …
This card is super easy to do and there is literally no stamping involved! I simply cut down one of the 4×6 cards for my background with the flowers on it and cut out the “Hello” using my Stitched Shapes Framelits and added a ribbon and some rhinestones and I was done!
This second card was super easy too! I took one of the 4×6 cards and cut it into strips then layered it on some complimentary colours. Stamped the Sentiment from the Cake Soiree Stamp Set onto a Whisper White Strip, snipped the end to create a banner and popped a bow on for this sweet Birthday Card!
Check out this quick video from Stampin’ Up!
