It’s Sheree here with today’s Friday Favourites post! I absolutely love the super gorgeous journaling cards in the Amanda Kit this month so I’m featuring some of my faves in this new pocket page spread…
I tend to choose one card for my journaling and three cards that I can embellish and decorate when I’m putting a spread together. The rainbow card was the first card I reached for….so cute right? It was so quick and easy to choose three more cards to go along with it too.
I decided to hand stitch on each of the rainbow bands to add some texture to the card. I chose four embroidery threads from my stash to match the colours as closely as I could. I use a paper piercer to poke the holes before hand stitching along each band. It was so easy to do and I love the result!
To finish off I added a chipboard label and the “today” die cut on top.
For the photo at the bottom on the first page I added the “love this” sticker from last month’s Katherine Puffy Sticker pack. The journaling to the right was printed onto vellum before layering on top of the pink lined card. I stamped “Family Time” from the Amanda stamp set onto white cardstock, added it above the text then used my sewing machine to add stitching. I also added a black miniwide paper clip to the side.
At the top of the second page is the polkadot card. I added machine stitching, adhered the floral die cut with foam squares and then stamped the phrase “sunny days” in the white section at the bottom. On the photo to the right of this I simply added another Katherine Puffy Sticker.
I left the photo at the bottom of the second page just as it was, then got to work on the “play” journaling card. I added a die cut label with some stitching, then added the word “handball” using the Mini Puffy Alphabet Stickers from the Lola Kit. A little die cut star was adhered under the label to finish it off.
You can see my process in the video below if you'd like more details...
The Amanda Kit journaling cards really made this spread so quick and easy to put together! I hope I’ve given you a few ideas you can use on your journaling cards too.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day!
