My Crush Books - Fun Projects On-The-Go

The holidays may be over, but preserving those holiday memories has just begun for me! I love keeping mementos from the holidays - cards, tags, tickets and other ephemera I seem to collect as the month goes on. When I make my Christmas layout, I tend to just use photos. But this year, I wanted to showcase my mementos, too, so I decided to use our Holiday Happenings My Crush album.

This page is all about our anniversary - I made sure to keep the card I made for Fred and to tell our story - my small handwriting fills the edges of the left page and frames the photos of the right. The My Crush collection comes with cute little cards for decoration, as well as stickers for personalizing each page.

I love that the pages are pre-decorated - it makes it so easy to just add a journaling card and a few stickers.

My other favorite feature of this My Crush book are the fun page protectors. They come in a variety of sizes and you can easily slip photos into them and you're done! I love this one because I can showcase my collection of Barbie ornaments - 12 photos on each side!

Now why did I call this a fun "on-the-go" project? Because it requires so few supplies (your book and accessories, a pen and some adhesive) you can take it with you anywhere! I even have a fun little board I made to hold all my accessories:

I got this small poster board piece at Staples and used our Flip Flaps to hold all my accessories. I wish I could claim this as my own idea, but I got this from Margot, my favorite organizational ninja. :)

So if you see me in a waiting room or eating by myself somewhere, odds are I'll have my My Crush bag with me and I'll be scrapping away!

Oh my gosh I love the flip flap organizing ides! I am so going to do that. I cannot wait to meet you and Margot someday!
