Welcome to the Summer of Paper series – where we’ve invited fabulous guests to create projects using supplies from my Home + Made paper decor line.
I honestly feel like I am over the hill these days. I’m not ACTUALLY over the hill, but sometimes I just feel OLD. It happens every once in a while, and it just recently hit me when I was taking my oldest daughter to High School orientation. Nothing can make you feel over the hill more than taking your first born baby to high school orientation. I am not sure where the time goes, but I am determined to remember every single moment. That’s why I am sharing this High School Diary project with you today. It’s a place to keep all of the new memories she is about to start making, and keep me from feeling so old.
By the way, I am Jen from PinkWhen, and I can’t wait to share how easy peasy this project is. Let’s get started!
I have the hardest time with time. It really bothers me that it goes so fast. If you have kids, you know what I am talking about. If you don’t have kids yet, you will one day know exactly what I am talking about. It’s this inanimate object that never slows down or stops for anything. It doesn’t matter what you are going through in your life, good or bad, time is just going to keep on flying. Making a diary project like this is one way to make time go backwards. I also want my daughter to vividly remember all of these years that will inevitably help shape her future.
High School Diary Project
To create this project I used just a few fun supplies:
1″ Mini binder
Craft papers and supplies from the Jen Hadfield Home+Made Collection
To begin this project I selected the perfect sized binder for the diary. I loved the size of these mini binders.
I then grabbed my favorite papers from the Jen Hadfield Home+Made selection for the basic background of the binder. I loved the gold glitter stripes and thought it would be a good starting point.
