Hello, Shelly here! I am back with this month’s Project LifeⓇ inspiration. Today, I documented our family photo shoot using a mix of Market Street and the Record it! Charmed Collections along with some pocket pages to make it quick and easy.
Once I got Market Street in my hands, I knew I wanted to do something with our family photos that I took for our Christmas card. I make it a point each year to capture a family shot for our Christmas card with a few extra shots of the kids too. I know it would be so much easier to just get a shot of the kids, but I feel it is so important to have a nice shot of all of us… at least once a year, right!?! These mini photo shoots almost always occur outside during the fall season, and I think that those divine colors from Market Street are the perfect match for any fall pictures. I know we are sitting smack dab in the middle of summer for us here in this part of the world, but I just couldn’t resist a fall layout.
Supplies: Market Street “Ashbury Heights”: Metallic & Enamel Dots, Chipboard Buttons, Label Stickers, Shimmer Pattern Paper, 3x4 Journaling Cards; Market Street “Nob Hill”: Mixed Bag, Decorative Brads; Record It! Charmed: Journaling kit; Other: Becky Higgins Design G page protectors, string, corner rounder
I really wanted to keep things super simple with this layout. I wanted my pictures to shine and those pretty papers and cards to complement each one of them.
I think mixing Market Street’s rich colors along with Record It! Charm’s bold black, white, and gold did the trick of doing just that.
I added in a touch of embellishing here and there for a little extra excitement.
I am always a fan of tone-on-tone color action. I love that it blends in, yet stands out too. These phrase stickers from the label sheet where the perfect thing to add that extra something to this trimmed 4x6 striped paper.
To bring in some more of the floral, I added in this brad along with a couple of enamel dots for a cluster of three. I am all about repeating elements to bring a layout together.
So how do you feel about documenting using the ease of pocket pages and journaling cards? I have been documenting everyday life through the “typical” weekly project life format since 2009, but just recently started to venture into documenting events and seasons. I truly love that you can make project life anything you want it to be even mixing in traditional pages too.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day!
