I love documenting my life with weekly Project Life spreads! At the end of each month, I batch edit and order the previous month’s photos and then work on spreads in batches. This week, I’m sharing a spread from mid-June.
Click on the photos for a larger view.
Going on here: Pretty Kansas City skies, cats, Jonas “swimming” in the tiny pool with my sister Taylor, Eliza’s Federal Reserve field trip, coffee, yoga, dinner + fancy cupcakes with Beth, going to finally get a Missouri driver’s license. (Even though I haven’t lived in Kansas for a very long time. I know, I know it’s bad.)
Tip: Use a sticker to separate two sections of journaling.
Tip: Use a collection of labels to create a journaling spot on a photo.
Tip: Use postcards and business cards to add more color to your pages!
The pinwheel and calendar card were in a set from Elise that shipped with an order. I sliced it up and used it as two cards! The bunny card is a business card from a Smallcakes, where Beth and I grabbed fancy cupcakes. They commissioned local legendary graffiti artist Scribe to paint the wall of their building and it is awesome. I love so much that I could slip a high quality no-traffic photo of the wall into my project thanks to that business card.
Tip: Add titles directly onto your photos with letter stickers! If there isn’t enough contrast between the letters and the photo, outline the stickers with a thin journaling pen.
Tip: Cover up parts of decorative cards that don’t apply to you!
It bugs me when a card has information on it for decorative purposes that could be misleading later. This card went well with my farmer’s market photos, but had the name of a (fake?) farm on it with an established by date. I covered up those bits with stamps from the Freckled Fawn Oh Deer Me kits and added a few cute corn stickers too!
*This spread includes a card made for the 30 Days of Lists Blog Hop.
Supplies: #30Lists prompt, Jade Project Life Core Kit, Freckled Fawn Oh Deer Me kits, Rukristin for Freckled Fawn labels, Studio Calico Project Life kits, Project Life journaling pens, Design A page protectors.
Let me know if you have any questions about these spreads or about pocket scrapping in general!
