Mix It Monday │ Patterned Paper Pairings │ Lydia CostJun 15, 2020
Hello there again, crafty friends! I finally feel like I’m back in a crafty groove, and I’m so very thankful! I’ve bathed in the sunshine and refreshed my soul, and I couldn’t wait to get back to my craft desk. For my first project back from vacation, I knew I wanted to pull out my TN sized ring album. These little spreads are such a breeze to document with, and I always love the outcome.
I started this spread by first pulling out my Katherine papers; I knew I wanted to mix some amazing patterns from other collections in with her amazing color scheme. That’s what I love so much about FJ papers; they are so darn easy to mix and match. I mixed in some of my older Shay and Denise papers, and they blended seamlessly!
For my left-side page I stitched on a scrap of the amazing star patterned paper, with some of my Shay paper scraps to build that TN sized page. I then layered on my photo and added my title using that fabulous little “my story” die-cut piece. As you’ve learned by now, I’m a total sucker for hidden journaling. I chose to tuck in a pretty stitched tag behind my photo to hand-write in my photo journaling.
I needed a bit more space for journaling my week, so I popped in one of the amazing journaling cards with my hole punch. I layered on the Katherine girl die-cut and a pretty little bow. I love how journaling cards in these albums break up the spreads and give them lots of dimension!
On my right-side page, I went for another pocket with some mixed patterned papers. I layered up a pocket on the bottom portion, so that I could slide another journaling card in. Those journaling cards sure do come in handy in my album. I layered on some florals, tucked in my journaling card, and popped up my photo on top of the pocket. Such a simple and pretty page, as far as I’m concerned.
Thanks for taking a peek at my little spread, friends! I can’t wait to see how you guys are mixing your FJ favorites!
