I can try. My issues with Aspects are the same as with the Scrips in Full Light, Full Steam. They, in the applications I've seen, are primarily about recognition, reinforcement and appreciation for a largely static thing. They generate more verbal artifacts into the game-space to be appreciated by the group as illustrating that thing. This is not a bad thing. It just bores me. What you're suggesting (without a greater context) seems to be more or less the same thing but instead of producing verbal artifacts for appreciation you have literal artifacts.Which inspired this SotC hack: The third time you invoke an Aspect, you must change or discard it.
I don't see much difference between having a stack of little pictures that are more or less there for everyone to hold up and say, "Look at these." than the pile of verbal transcript memories of all the times I got to say, "I"m a man of ACTION!"
