Gratitude Journaling with the Harper Kit | Mandy MelvilleNov 21, 2019
Hi FJ friends!
Mandy here with you today to share another traveler's notebook spread that I created for the Gratitude Journaling Challenge. Have you been joining in the challenge with us this month? Don't forget to download your free printable prompts! As I previously mentioned, I'm using one of my FJ traveler's notebook inserts for the challenge, and today I'm sharing a spread that I created for the prompt 'What do you love most about your home?'. I've used the gorgeous Harper kit for this layout. There are so many elements in this kit that make it perfect for gratitude journaling, and I'm loving the beautiful rich colours!
On the left hand side of the spread I've added my title and typed journaling strips, as well as that super cute house die cut from the Harper kit. How perfect is that little house for this layout?!
I combined a few different elements to create my title 'Grateful for our Home'. I started with the 'grateful' die cut from the kit, and then I used the Lola Mini Puffy Alphabet stickers to add the words 'for our' to a die cut banner. I finished the title off by stamping the word 'home' onto white cardstock using the Jeana stamp set, and then fussy cutting it out to add underneath the banner. I love the combination of the different fonts in the title, and I think it really helps to draw the viewer into the layout!
I covered the right hand side of the spread with the leaves patterned paper from the kit, leaving the yellow branding strip across the bottom of the page. I also cut an extra piece of the branding strip to add across the top of the page. I love the way that frames the page and also adds a gorgeous pop of colour!
I created some layers behind the photo using a couple of the journaling cards as well as a cardstock frame. This helps the photo to really stand out, and also adds some more colour and interest to the page. Lastly, I tucked a die cut flower under the bottom edge of the photo.
Thanks so much for joining me here on the blog today! I hope that you enjoyed taking a look at my spread!
