It’s hard for me to believe that my little girl is only one year away from starting High School; it seems like yesterday I was peeling her away from my leg on her first day at Infant School. But here she is: sassy, clever and beautiful: and I could not be more proud. So this pocket page spread is a celebration of her right now: the young lady she has become and a snapshot of what life looks like as she reaches the end of Year 5.
What has surprised me about this stage in her development, is how she can be so young and sweet at one moment, then so sharp and independent the next. With their combinations of gentle sugary tones and zingy pops of colour, my Felicity Jane kits set the scene for this story perfectly.
I love to include memorabilia in my pocket scrapbooking as I think those little bits of real life help to tell your family’s story so well. One of my favourite things in my scrapbooking generally, is to work largely in pale colours, then throw in a couple of stronger colours that really ‘pop’ - this combination of citrus yellow and hot pink makes me so happy!
The large Zoey chipboard numbers are perfect for titles as they’re so visually strong. I love how this striped ‘5’ looks alongside the beautiful mint letter stickers.
I also like to include scraps like this till receipt from our local toy shop; I know it will be fascinating to look back on one day when Kitty is grown-up and maybe even has children of her own.
This style of scrapbooking works so well for me as so little time is required for a really beautiful result that you can treasure. When the embellishments are as lovely as this puffy bow from the Brie kit, there’s really nothing else needed than to pop it down on a pretty journalling card and sit back and smile!
I hope you enjoy watching how this page came together, friends. Bye for now.
