Monthly Planning and Memory Keeping with the Meadow Collection

Monthly Planning and Memory Keeping with the Meadow Collection
Hello, friends! In the last post, we shared some fabulous ideas for setting up your planner for the month. Today, we are taking a closer look at monthly spreads in both an everyday planner and a memory planner. For Karma, monthly planning in my Hobonichi Weeks with the Meadow Collection is so fast, easy and¬†super cute! "The Meadow Calendar Daisy Weeks Sticker Kit is perfectly sized for the Hobonichi Weeks monthly calendar pages. This checks all my planning boxes! There simply isn't enough of the color blue in my planning supplies. And look at these cool cute critters - pugs, bunnies, and butterflies!!?? LOVE it! For on-the-go planning, cut up your Meadow Daisy Weeks Sticker Kits and put the boxes in your planner pockets so you can quickly add important events and call-outs in your planner while you're on the go - portable and perfect! I love the Washi so much from the Meadow Collection that I had to highlight it by cutting out the bottom of the sidebar to let it peek out. Here's a quick 90-second video that walks you through the simple steps to set up the perfect month with Meadow!"     We love how Renee is memory-keeping in the monthly section of her planner using the Meadow Collection.
"My monthly layouts are my favourite pages in my Memory Planner. I love looking back at each month to see and read the highlights that happened that month.
To create this layout I used the large letters from the Meadow Classified Memory Keeping Kit to add the March title down the side of the page. The days of the week came from the Meadow Classified: Planner Kit.
Once that was set up I went through my camera roll and picked out the photos that highlighted the fun things that happened to our family that month. I size each photo to 1.5 x 1.5 in a template I created in Photoshop, then print them on my Canon Selphy Printer. I use a tape runner to adhere the photos down on the page.
Once all of the photos are in place I go back and add stickers, stamps, and journaling to tell the story of that month. The stickers and die cuts from the Meadow Collection were the perfect accents for this spread. I love pulling phrases and sentiments that quickly give a snapshot of the memory captured. Head over to my Instagram to see a process video of this spread! "
