Staff Projects: Katie's December Daily Library Tray

It's no secret that we have some of the most creative staff members anywhere working at Memory Bound! Many of them have created December Journals to document special holiday happenings (if you missed the blog post, you can see photos of their beautiful projects here). 

Katie took a different approach this year, choosing to use a 7Gypsies library tray and "divider" cards. I'm a "library girl" at heart, so anything made with a library tray appeals to me! I love how her project came together!

Katie was initially inspired by a project she saw in the Somerset Holidays and Celebrations magazine. It appealed to her desire to keep things simple and doable during the busy holiday season. All she needed was a 7Gypsies tray, paper, and embellishments.

When the Simple Stories line arrived at Memory Bound, Katie saw that it would be perfect for her project. She cut the double-sided 12x12 sheets into 4x6 squares to make 24 different cards that fit perfectly into the library tray. But Katie says the best part about this collection is the sheet of number stickers, which gave her many options for each day. She bought two sheets so she could use the same number on the front and back of each card.

Katie's plan is to take photos throughout the month of December and simply place them behind the divider cards. There is plenty of room for writing down special memories, too. She also included kraft envelopes for memorabilia she plans to keep.

Her boys' Christmas wish lists will be on these adorable cards. What a treasure this project will be -- now and in years to come!

Thanks, Katie, for inspiring us all!
