Remember This is a fun memory keeping set that's great for all sorts of projects whether it's traditional scrapbooking, Project Life, keepsakes or card making.  I've recently spent a bit more time considering how I want to approach memory keeping for my twins.  There's never a spare moment in our lives, so it's got to be something quick and something I can do in short little bursts, since having more than 15 minutes to do anything at one time is a luxury!  I think I've settled on a mix of styles using Project Life, smashbooks and some perpetual calendars, so now all I needed were some stamps to help me along the way.  So that was the inspiration for the Remember This and coordinating Calendar Countdown sets featuring fonts similar to those that are so trendy right now with chalkboard art.  The calendar set has numbers from 0 to 31 and all the months of the year as well as spelled out years for twenty-twelve through twenty-fourteen.  Remember This  has all the days of the week plus a great mix of beautiful sentiments perfect for pairing with photos or using on cards.

The Smile Plain Jane is just a fun little encouraging sentiment that I thought would be great for little pick-me-up notes.  Here's what it looks like.

That's all for today.  I hope you have fun hopping about and seeing all the new products in action!  First up on the hop is ... Amber!

See ya tomorrow for Day 2.
