Extra Pages Added to a Memory Planner

Hi!  What a fun, busy fall and Halloween we had!  There were so many memories to capture, that I needed to add extra pages to my memory planner.  It’s simple to do, so I hope you’ll give it a try.

Adding Extra Pages

With the cooler days of autumn it’s now time to hit the trails, and travel to a warmer climate!  Which means I have lots of great photos to add to my memory planner.  That’s so easy to do with my planner, because the rings match the spacing of a Bind-It-All or a Cinch.  No specialized punch required, because I can use a scrapbooking tool I already have.

October Month at a Glance

I like to use the month at a glance pages to document the story of the month, so I limit the photos on this page.  By only displaying the key photos and keeping the embellishments to a minimum I’ve left lots of room to write the story behind the photos.

Decided to decorate this page with a Halloween theme, because I love the fun Paper House Halloween planner collection.

The First Week of Autumn

Autumn is here, but the leaves are mostly green and it’s still warm.  So warm that we’re still swimming at the lake!  The Free Spirit collection is perfect for decorating this week in my planner, because the colors are a nice lead into the fall colors that will be here soon.

I paired the succulent stickers with the Free Spirit collection, because the colors match so well.  The rice paper stickers add so much detail to this page.

Getting Outdoors

We love early fall camping, so the Outdoors collection is the perfect for our trip to the Adirondacks.

The mini scenes created by layering embellishments go great with our photos.  For example, the puffy tent sticker layered on top of the tree sticker on top of the plaid pocket reminds me of our camp site.

Love the Outdoors collection, because it has a different look each time I use it.  Here’s a link to another memory spread using the Outdoors collection.

Turning Leaves

Now that the leaves are turning colors, it’s time we hit the trails.  The Autumn Woods collection is the perfect choice, because the colors match my photos so well.

Don’t you just love the little cluster I added to the pocket?  All I did was group the fox puffy sticker with a couple leaf flake stickers, then added them to the leaf print pocket.

Adding Extra Pages with Print Cardstock

I have so many great photos from this week, that I decided to add an extra page.  I could have tucked the photos into the pocket, but I wanted them to be displayed in my memory planner.

Memory Planner Extra Pages

Adding extra pages to my planner is really easy, because the Autumn Woods collection has a matching paper line.  All I did was cut a piece of coordinating paper 7″ x 9 1/2″, then punched the holes using my Bind-It-All.  You don’t need to purchase a special punch, because the hole spacing in the planner is standard.  I love it when I can use tools I already own, rather than having to purchase specialized tools.  Thank you Paper House!

I could have cut slits on each hole then popped the page into my planner, but my planner is starting to “alligator mouth.”  So my plan is to remove the 2017 pages, make a new cover, then added binding rings with my Bind-It-All.  Because this is an 18 month planner, I’ll still have the entire 2018 year to decorate as a separate book.

Here’s the flip side of the extra page.  Extra pages are so easy to make, because this collection has matching double sided cardstock.

Fall Colors

Just love how the Autumn Woods collection matches the colors of the fall leaves in my photos.

The flake stickers are so cute.  The puffy and epoxy stickers are my favorites, because they add dimension to my spread.

Halloween

Love the Halloween collection, so I had to use it for both the week leading up to Halloween and Halloween week.  Most of the things we did were outdoor activities, but the colors match so well it totally works.

The Halloween washi and puffy sayings totally transform this page!

Memory Planner Extra Pages

The week of Halloween included a trip to Disney World and Universal to attend the Halloween celebrations at both parks, so the Halloween collection is perfect!  Love the Jack ‘o lantern rice paper stickers.  As you can imagine I have so many wonderful photos from this trip, thus adding extra pages is a requirement here too.

Adding Extra Pages with Acetate

In addition to coordinating paper, the Halloween collection has coordinating cobweb acetate, so I just had to use it.

Memory Planner Extra Pages

Adding extra pages with acetate is as simple as adding extra pages it with cardstock.  I just cut the acetate to 7″ x 9 1/2″, then punched holes in it with my Bind-It-All.  The number and size of the photos on each side is different, so I added a cardstock mat to give a finished look to the page.

On this side I used smaller photos, because I wanted more of the cute ghost paper to show.  I also created clusters using flake stickers, micro stickers and epoxy stickers.

What a great way to remember this trip, plus all the other fall fun we had in October.
