Hello and happy Tuesday! Anita here to share a new Project Life spread I created using photos from a recent trip to Pittsburgh. I've been doing Project Life for many years and decided to change things up this year by creating event based spreads rather than weekly or monthly spreads. Many of my weeks are the same so I wasn't really feeling motivated to document our life on a weekly basis. I've been loving this new approach and don't feel as much pressure to "keep up". I create a spread whenever something notable happens like a vacation/trip, special event, birthday, etc. So far it's been going well but I still find myself "behind" on documenting some events this year and I'm totally fine with it. I'll get them in the book eventually!
Here's a look at the left and right side of the spread. As it turns out, this month's Emeline kit was perfect for my photos. The colors matched perfectly and made this spread so easy to put together.
As you can see, I'm a pretty "flat" scrapper. I've tried creating these spreads in many different ways and have found that my favorite pages are the ones that are simple and the ones that let the photos shine. I like using pretty cards/papers, flat embellishments and adding a bit of journaling. The Felicity Jane kits are perfect for my style since there is always a beautiful cut-apart sheet of cards and a flat sticker sheet with multiple designs that can be used to layer or use as-is. There's also a stamp set each month and I almost always find a phrase or design that can be added to my spread.
In the pages I'm sharing today, you can see how I used the die cut labels from Emeline as embellishments on a couple of the cards and also used the star stamp to note that we had a five star day. I also used the word phrases from the sticker sheet. And, believe it or not, you'll see a little bit of dimension on this spread from the heart puffy stickers and enamel dots I added as final touches. Here are a few close-up shots of these details.
I love how this spread turned out and am happy to have our vacation memories documented in this year's album. Do any of you use your Felicity Jane kits in your Project Life albums? If so, I would love to see your pages!
