Heidi Swapp - January Memory Planner Pages Part 1

Heidi Swapp 2015 Memory Planner @heidswapp @createoften #heidiswapp #hsMemoryPlanner #planner #plannerlove #diy

I can't tell you how much joy I have been having in Heidi Swapp's Capture 30 class. Not only have I been trying my best in perfecting my handwriting, but I have enjoyed the deep thinking about how to make this planner be more than just a "calendar." I really want to give myself freedom to dream and grow while also documenting that one thing every day so that at the end of the year I can visually see my blessings!

Everyone's planner will look different! Here is how I am choosing to do mine! On the full month calendar pages I am just adding things that would normally be on my appointment calendar. No school, birthdays, doctors appointments, teaching engagments, etc... This page isn't done as I can still add quotes and other noteworthy things here.

On my actual date pages I am having fun! Hey, if I want to add a photo, I will! I am also tracking my weight loss so that I can see actual progress. That is encouraging! On the lined area I will add my "one little thing" and on the empty space to the right I will add lists or photos.

I also realized for big events like CHA, I might want to add extra pages and tons of pictures. I am trying to keep things small because I know that I want my album to close by the end of the year! ;)

I purchased Simple Stories' Snap 6x8 page protectors to add to my album. They are a little too big for this one so I cut them down. Yet, they fit perfectly in the Gold Boxed Edition so I am happy to use them there too.


I have no shame in asking friends if I can use their photos in my memory planner and printing them off with my Canon Selphy home printer. Hey, sometimes a friend captures a moment when you can't!

I feel like my early teen years is coming back to me by adding tape and photo strips to my scrapbooks, or that my days of SMASH books is resurfacing... whatever it is, I love it.

I have also purchased the Simple Stories Snap 4x6 Photo Flips so that I can add some larger photos on my pages. I love the freedom to do that if I need to!

Shoot, I will even print out a screen shot from Instagram if I have to ;) (with permission of course)

So far, most of all, I have been so proud of the progress of my handwriting in just a week! It's all about taking it slow. Since I have to slow down to write in my planner, it actually becomes therapeutic for those five minutes of quiet.

Create Well: Slow down and take time to write your #onelittlethingeveryday
