Springtime Memory Dex Mini Album

Hi there!  Shellye McDaniel dropping by today with one of my favorite monthly projects, the Springtime Memory Dex Mini Album. I like to think of it as a daily journal to keep me inspired.

Memory Dex Mini Album Basics

To get started on this springtime art journal, I die-cut thirty-one various shaped cards from heavy-weight cardstock. I alternated the shapes and patterns to make the system more eye-catching.

Next, I selected matching elements such as stickers, die-cuts, and cut-outs to add to each page.

Adhering the Elements

I always reach for products from Scrapbook Adhesives when crafting something that will get a lot of wear-and-tear. These are the adhesive products  I used on the different materials and elements:

Finally, before I go on to the last few cards, let me share that I find a basket filled with my favorite adhesives makes the crafting go much quicker! I also gather embellishments, stickers, and die-cuts that coordinate with my project.
