Hello everyone! This is Shelly back this month with another installment of Project Life inspiration. Today, I am featuring an average week in the life using Kate&Co -Cambridge Court Collection along with a touch of Find Your Wings and Fly –Sky’s The Limit Collection.
Supplies: Kate&Co-Cambridge Court: Lovely Day pattern paper, 6x6 designer paper pad, decorative brads, sticker accessory sheet; Find Your Wings and Fly-Sky's the Limit: Layered Ephemera pattern paper. Other: Becky Higgins design A page protectors, date stamp, BohemianTypewriter font.
There is always a product that I use as my jumping off point with my weekly spreads. I have been just itching to put those circle stickers on the Cambridge Court’s sticker accessory sheet to good use in my album. So that is what I went for first. That is when I saw the colorful stripes on that camera card! Perfect.
I used the speech bubble sticker to date my week. I wanted it to really pop off the title, so I opted to mix in the soft grey from Sky’s the Limit. I added a little color to my title card with the enamel tops from the brads. I like to keep my albums fairly flat, so all I did was take my finger nail and popped the top right off of the metal part of the brad. Easy! And I like that it gives it a different look. I also embellished the camera card with one.
The second card is actually the other side of a journaling card that I used for the previous week’s spread. It coordinated so well, that I just went with it. I like when that kind of thing happens.
I trimmed one of the cards to add a little extra journaling to one of my pictures. It made good use of the extra space in my picture.
When working on my pocket pages, I do the same thing as I do for my traditional scrapbook layouts. When I do one thing to one side, I like to do the same thing to the other side. I made a filler card to match the title card using the same pattern paper and one of the round stickers. Oh how I do love those round sticker sayings.
I needed a 4x6 journaling card, so I simply trimmed down a 6x6 lined pattern paper to use as a journaling card. I love how it adds a little extra color too.
I ran my journaling cards through my printer. Unfortunately, my printer grabbed the paper a little crooked. I didn’t let it bother me though. There was no need to waste a good sheet of pattern paper, so I just went with it. I shared how I do this in previous posts HERE and HERE.
I do have to say that I wasn’t too sure about the glasses card when I first saw it, but once I saw that this week included the last day of school for my daughter, I just thought the glasses would work perfectly for
it! It is very teacher-ish to me.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my simple approach to pocket page scrapbooking. I love putting all those different journaling card pattern papers by My Mind’s Eye to good use to record my everyday memories.
