It’s alarming to think that it’s already been a week since I came home from Las Vegas. My first Go Wild Conference could not have been more amazing (and of course I filmed the whole thing) and I wanted to document it better than I ever have before.
This is my first attempt at a memory book and I’ve learned a ton of tips and tricks in the process of putting this one together. I’ll lay those on ya as we go through some of my favorite pages.
If you take any advice away from this post, it should be this. Bring adhesive with you. I LOVE this adhesive runner from Tombow because it makes everything super easy without making a huge mess. It made attaching room keys, postcards, and random odds and ends incredibly simple.
I also brought my Polaroid Zip along with me to print photos at the end of each day. I’m the type of person who forgets things easily, so I wanted to make sure I took the time to document each day to remember all the fun details.
A small pair of scissors also proved to be quite useful to cut washi and trim up photos. I didn’t really have any sort of plan when I started this book either. I just put things down as I went along and I loved the freedom of just throwing things into it as I got them. No stress.
Sticker contact cards are the popular way of sharing Instagram names and contact info at planner events these days. I received quite a few within just the first few hours of the conference and I wanted to make sure I had a way to capture them all. I took a few stickers off of every sampler and put them on a couple of different collage pages. I love how it looks when it’s finished and I feel like I’m not wasting stickers I may not use.
Anything I thought I could remotely use in the book, I snagged up. I took brochures at various hotels and maps from help desks. I didn’t use many of them, but I am obsessed with this map of the strip and of course the little llama sticker to mark the conference location.
Our swag bags included a roll of conference washi tape so I disregarded my usual “meh” opinions of washi to create this dashboard on one of the pages. When in Rome right? Or in this case…Vegas…
I do a full flip through of my memory journal in this video if you want to get a better look at all the pages! Do you keep memory books? What are some of your tips and tricks?
