Nostalgic Summer Memories~ Video 6: Documenting without Photos

Welcome back to the final video in the Nostalgic Summer Memories. We have covered all Five of the senses this last week, sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. In this video I wanted to just get creative with you so I am going to document a few stories without photos. These are just a couple of random stories I have of past summer memories. I’m using marker, index cards, ephemera bits and stickers to decorate these stories. Thanks for following along in this video series and I’ll see you in my next video!

Nostalgic Summer Memories~ Video 3: Documenting Using HEARING

Hello and welcome back to Nostalgic Summer memories using your senses. In today’s video number 3, I am showing a way to Document using your sense to hear. Music and television was a big part of our summer as a kid and in this video I show how I am documenting them. It’s very different then what it is now because once the good shows were over then boredom kicked in. Thankful for my sisters so I did have someone to play games and other activities. I created a pocket envelope and mini junk tag that resembles ice cream and the ice cream packaging.

The printable template for them is available on my blog under the post for this video.Hope you are inspired to create using the sense of hearing.

Nostalgic Summer Memories~ Video 2: Documenting using Sight

Hello and welcome back to Nostalgic Summer memories using your senses. Today’s video is about Documenting using the sense Sight. I have created a fold out map of a place we use to go as a kid for picnics, camping and Sunday fun. It was fun remembering all the little things, like the swimming hole and large picnic table for all the family. Hope you are inspired to create using your sense of Sight.

Nostalgic Summer Memories Video No.1~Creative Station

Yay! Hello and welcome to Documenting our Summer Nostalgic memories Video series! This series will run for seven days and each day will give examples of how to document using your senses! Sight, Hearing, Smell Taste and Touch. The idea of this project came to me while digging through an old box of photos. This project can be a combination of past, present and future summers. It can be used to document summers when you were a kid, summers with your kids or grandkids, or just random memories of summer’s past. I love the idea of documenting about your favorite nostalgic movies, food, or events that you want to remember. Endless possibilities! In this video, I will be showing you my journal I plan to use and my “Creative Station” with all the things I plan to document with. A free printable is located on the blog, posted on Sunday, June 7th. . Thanks for watching and I will “see” you tomorrow when we will be talking about sight!
