These kits got me excited to get right into documenting Autumn! I love the home theme–the houses are so very cute–and I decided to interpret it a little differently with home games!
I started by using the Home Embellishment Kit and Home Journal Cards to make a page about the Homecoming football game from my high school I took my family to last fall. The star sequins go with my alma mater’s colors, so I knew it would be a perfect fit!
I made a spread with a traditional 12×12 page on the left for the game and the band, then combined it with a pocket page on the right to document going out to eat beforehand (at a cool restaurant where your food is delivered by model train!) and my art hanging in the hallway at my school.
The home flair was a great way to go with the home game / homecoming theme and the acetate letters gave me a fun, bold title that stood out on the simple page. the star sequins balanced out these elements in the title.
Strips of glitter washi and a line of star sequins frame the page.
For the pocket page, I used Home journal cards in three of the pockets and filled the fourth pocket with sequins to create a shaker packet. I sewed the pocket closed and then covered the stiching with glitter washi.
A home puffy sticker was a subtle addition to a journal card to tie in the theme on the accompanying page and the silicone “LOVE TODAY” shape is perfect on top of the salmon and red rectangle card!
Overall, this kit was fantastic to help me make a page routing for my home team.
Inspired to keep going documenting sports, I used the Home Planner Kit to make a page about a home game for my city’s soccer club, Sporting KC. My friend and I got to hold the Open Cup at the game, which is a once in a lifetime thing, so I wanted to go big documenting it!
I used a big photo of us holding the cup and balanced it out with a card from the Home Journal Cards for my title–I used a home puffy sticker and stamped the word game, then added sequins above and below the card.
A strip of glitter washi separated the break in patterned papers and a “details” planner cardstock sticker was a great way to start off my journaling!
Keeping with a grid-like arrangement on this layout, I drew rectangles around the photos on the bottom of the page and filled the blank spaces with embellishments, drawing rectangles around them too. The heart cardstock stickers happened to go right with the colors of my team, the opposing team, and the field!
In the other space I stacked an arrow cardstock sticker, sequins (obviously my favorite item from this kit), stamps, and a home cardstock sticker where I recorded the team names and final score.
It was so fun to get clever documenting home games with this Home kit and I’m excited to share more Autumn pages with this kit this month!
