Ahhhh...monthly pages...thirty-ish days at a glance, all in one spot for your eyes to see and your brain to process! How do YOU take advantage of such beauty and function? If you're memory planning, you might be inspired to try what mambi Design Team member Heather Kell (IG | blog | YouTube) has been doing since the beginning of this year: include one snapshot a day into the boxes of her BIG 'Make Things Happen' Happy Planner®'s monthly calendar.
About these pages, Heather writes:
"I moved to a BIG Happy Planner® in January for my memory planning and needed to come up with a new way to use my monthly spread. I was inspired by a sticker in the Memory Planning Sticker Book that simply said 'snapshots'. It inspired me to use my monthly spread to show a 'snapshot' from every day of the month.
I used my Polaroid ZIP and a 1.5 inch circle punch to create the circles for each day. I love how the circles turned out - in the past I had done squares, but love that the circles mix it up."
"I added a few stickers from different mambi sticker books on some of the photos as extra embellishment. For example, January 9th was a photo of my husband and I watching Alabama play in the National Championship, so I added a sticker that said 'THIS IS BIG'. On January 13 and 14, we had back to back date nights so I added a cute pink heart.
I love that I can look at this monthly spread and easily be reminded of little moments from our month. I can then flip to my weekly spreads to read more details about our days."
"For my February spread, I'll be doing the same idea but with a Valentine twist. Since it's the 'month of love', I will take a photo every day with my husband and post it in the monthly spread. My husband is already excited about taking silly photos, incorporating silly props, and just having fun with the photos. I love that this will get him involved in my memory planning process!"
