March Stories

Hello, dear blog! This year, I've been working on a little project I've been calling Monthly Stories. I create a 6x8 album for each month that tells my family's stories. I don't worry about going in chronological order. I don't worry about including something from each day. I just include the stories and memories that stand out to me, the things I think Levi, Cecily, and I will enjoy looking back on 10, 20, 50 years from now!

I took some quick shots of my March album today to share with you guys. I already shared a quick flip-through video on my Instagram, but there's just way too much in this album to fit in a small square for 15 seconds! I predominantly used Dear Lizzy's Fine and Dandy collection. I've been having lots of fun sticking to one collection with each album. It makes choosing supplies quicker, and it allows me to get my fill of the collections I love! Without further ado... this was March in the Myers household:


I include a calendar and a list of what we're currently into every month. Those little pockets are stuffed with journalling and tiny photos that go with each category.

I also include a list of Cecily's milestones, interests, pronunciations, habits, etc. I have a REALLY hard time keeping all of these one one page because I usually want to go on and on and on. This is where the question, "Do I really need to remember this?" comes in handy.


I play the dorkiest role-play games on my iPhone and think it's hilarious to include them in my albums. I know it'll make me laugh someday to look back on this.



I love how you can see through the pocket with the acetate piece. Looking through all the layers in my albums is one of my favorite things about these!





I included a tiny photo album in this little folder between a 2-page spread about Cecily walking with Mickey Mouse. I love how it turned out. I used my Fuse tool to create the pockets and stitched them to my paper with my sewing machine.



The page on the right is probably the simplest in this entire album, but it's one of my very favorites.

This spread is very layered. This is a piece of acetate with glittery alpha stickers. I love how it looks on the front and the back.

The photo of the rainbow is adhered to a piece of chipboard.

I created the little pocket of sequins with my Fuse tool, and the glassine envelope holds my journalling.

My journalling is typed on this tag that I embossed using the bow embossing folder from Fine & Dandy.

I love including large, full-size photos.

The doilies aren't part of the page on the left. I just wanted to keep that bit of journalling private.

I made the pocket on the right with a piece of vellum and my sewing machine. It holds several pages of private journalling. That little deer tag is one of my favorite things in this album! I've been saving that deer for ages. I used my sewing machine to ruffle a piece of eyelet ribbon onto a shipping tag.


I make a large pocket to include at the end of each album. They hold all the miscellaneous photos that I want to include but don't really warrant an entire spread.

I like to add a strip of typed journalling to each photo. If I have a lot to say, I include more on the back.

Thanks for checking out my March album! These have been so much fun to make, & I already treasure each & every page I've created this year. :)
