Most of us love to create projects for other people to let them know they are important and that we care. We also like to create projects that help us remember specific moments in time, events, or even to document things that we have learned. Our design team creates projects for us all the time but they also create projects on their own for those and many more reasons. We wanted to share their most cherished projects along with you.
Christy - This page has a lot of meaning to me because my kids and husband helped me make it right down to choosing the papers and gluing down the embellishments. While the page may not be perfect is represents my families feelings for my dad, who is amazing selfless man. We gave this to him as a gift for Christmas.
Keisha - Why do I love this project so much? I love it because the quote really rings home to me. It helps me to remember to cherish the simple things that I love so much about life and to keep my perspective more simple
Julie - I have always loved this photo block project I did years ago for the Beyond Attachments book. It’s probably because the entire family got involved in deciding which photos would give the best snapshot of our life at that time. We picked themes for each block such as our hobbies, music we listened to, travels, cousins, friends, our comfort foods, holidays, favorite items of clothing, etc. Now these blocks are a great conversation starter when guests come over.
Maggie - I created this layout of my youngest son Nathan after an incident of coming close to losing him. I journaled about it on my blog so it took it word-for-word and put it on this layout so I could remember what happened and to help me remember how precious life truly is.
Erin - This layout is a meaningful one to me because of the message it contains. I do love it from a design standpoint, but more importantly—I love the response I received from it when it was published (in BHG’s Scrapbooks, etc). When I journaled, I was completely honest in how I was feeling at that time. So many people wrote or called me to tell me that they felt the same way I did and that they appreciated my honesty on the layout.
Joanna - I did this page a long time ago as a challenge from Memory Maker’s magazine to create a tribute to my mom. I love the top photo of my mom and I, but mainly it’s the journaling and the memories that makes it a such a meaningful page for me.
Wendy - This is one of my favorites because it is all about one of the cute childhood things Josh used to do. I liked it when I created it, but now that he's grown out of that phase his sweet "I love you's" could have been easily forgotten...it's become even more special to me...thanks to the journaling on this layout, I’ll never forget. Never.
