My Project Life: Week 16

LDS-APR-title

Hello, Karen here and I am back to share my Week 16 pages with you!  This week I features the new digital stamps from the Around Here | Mini Pack Collection.  These PNG files are perfect to add some LOVE DAY SEED flare directly onto your photos.  Of course these designs are also available in the 3×4 and 4×6 printables as well.   I’m loving the options and embracing the opportunity to do some hybrid scrapping!

Another notable thing about this week’s pages is that I had a lot of moments to document and I couldn’t contain them all to my usual two 12×12 pages.  To solve this issue I simply added in some additional pockets in the form of a 6×12 insert (my regular Becky Higgins Design A cut in half).  There was a lot of journaling to include and to keep a consistent look I chose to use a few variations from the Week Days | Calendar Collection.  I just loved how these days-of-the-week designs look scattered throughout the pages.

I tied everything together with a few embellishments and a gold polka dot washi tape.  I really hope you have enjoyed checking out my pages and I look forward to sharing more inspiration soon!  (Please see the bottom of this post for a complete list of supplies).

My Project Life: Week Seven

Week07-title

(This post originally appeared on the Love Day Seed blog.  To view the original post please click here.)

Hello!  Today I am excited to be sharing my week seven pocket-page spread using some beautiful cards from Love Day Seed.  My heart melted for the new rose gold TRULY collection and the accompanying TRULY GIFT (if you haven’t picked up Valentine’s Freebie yet be sure to head on over to the LDS shop > Gold Collection).  Lets take a look at the first side of this two-page spread.

Week07-SideA

One of my favourite things to do lately is to add some texture to my cards with ripped patterned paper.  (I was inspired to do this by RetroHipMama).  Take this weekly title card for example (White Collection | Calendar | Weekly Frames).  I added some texture and a little bit of colour with pieces from this lovely rose gold triangle card (Gold Collection | Texture Pattern | Rose).  I kept the embellishing pretty minimal with a small rose gold sequin and little strip of pink and gold washi.

Another simple and minimalist embellishment that I love to add is a small paper banner shape using one of my paper punches.  One of my favourite things to do is sneak a bit of paper from another card on the page, like I did with this striped rose gold card (Gold Collection | Texture Pattern | Rose). No one will ever know that there is a piece of the card missing because the hole is covered by my photo.

I also used my paper punched banners to add a little bit of whimsy to this card from the TRULY gift pack and topped it off with the “February” gold transparency from Studio Calico.

And here is a look at the right side of this two-page layout.

Week07-SideB

If you follow me on Instagram you may have noted that I challenged myself to use a dollar store gift bag to embellish my pages documenting Valentine’s day.  Here are a few ways that I used this gold foiled krafty goodness with the clean designs of these journaling cards from the White Collection.

I managed to find a way to sneak in a love-note using the little card that came attached to the gift bag.  I tucked it in behind this February 14 filler card (Gold Collection | Truly Gift).
