I can’t believe June is almost half over, but weekends are always welcome.

This weekend, I’m looking forward to catching up with friends, hanging out with my family and working on some side projects if I can.

Hope you guys have a good one xx.

Life is often full and busy. But I like to take time to enjoy some of my favorite things. So Friday Favorites is a weekly series where I share my favorite(s) for the week. Check out my other Friday Favorites here.

Let’s look at May

With (inter)National Scrapbooking Day, Mother’s Day and birthdays in our family, May was an exciting month! Still, it flew by pretty quickly.

A fun blog hop with the Kellie Stamps Design Team for (inter)National Scrapbooking Day.

Serendipity notebooks + printing on vellum

I love notebooks.

I typically carry a notebook with me wherever I go, and I’ve accumulated quite the stash of notebooks over the years.

For my post on the One Little Bird blog this month, I put together these notebooks using the pretty patterns and happy colors from the Serendipity collection.

I even printed on vellum (yay!), and had so much fun combining digital and more traditional supplies from my stash.

You can read all the details of my project here. Have fun!

I am enjoying this less stressful week and hoping things stay that way this summer. Regardless, I’m looking forward to not doing much this weekend besides hanging out and maybe, squeezing in some scrapbooking and wrapping up some assignments.

Have a good one, guys xx.

Project Life | Collecting memorabilia

10 types of memorabilia to include in Project Life | Amelia Writes

Admittedly, I am quite a pack rat and I love collecting memorabilia, whether it’s while traveling overseas or going on adventures even in my own city.

Collecting memorabilia is definitely one of my favorite parts about going anywhere.

Include memorabilia in your Project Life albums

I used to just end up with piles of paper with no where to put them. But now, I love that Project Life gives me a place for all the paper I collect (and a legit reason to keep collecting too, because they’re part of the memories!).

So naturally, I’m always looking out for different things I can include in my albums.

Right now, I’ve amassed quite a few favorites that I love to collect and include.

10 types of memorabilia to include in Project Life:

1. Postcards
2. Movie/concert tickets
3. Ticket stubs from trains/planes/buses
4. Coasters
5. Name cards/business cards
6. Maps
7. Brochures
8. Receipts
9. Price tags
10. Handwritten notes/cards

Most of the memorabilia I collect is free or pretty easy to come by. When I go on vacation, I sometimes end up paying a small amount to purchase a postcard or some sort of souvenir.

Include memorabilia in your Project Life albums

Sometimes I end up with tons of paper (yay!). Other times, uhm, not so much.

Include memorabilia in your Project Life albums

Next time you visit a place, look out for memorabilia you can take along with you, and save a piece of that experience in your scrapbook.
