My plan for this year is to create an album with lots and lots of lovely layers, meaning I plan to mix and match all different sizes of pocket pages and layouts together and house them in a 12x12 album. I have to confess though, I'm kind of hooked on the 9x12 format at the moment. I'm hoping to have several spreads of various sizes for each month. This one captures some of the everyday life details with my daughter in the first few days of February.
The colour palette for February's Pocket Life kit is SO lovely!! There are lots of bright (but not too bright) and cheery shades of blue and yellow and orange and pink. The most challenging part of putting together my spreads this month was trying to decide which side of the journaling cards to use because I really loved them both. Such a great new addition to the kits and I'm really happy with the quality of the heavier journaling cards!
I added little bits of machine stitching to a few of my cards this month for some added texture. I'm pretty tempted to hoard those die cut words, but did manage to get this one into my spread. I added just a little bit of purple watercolour paint to complement the colours in my photos.
If I had to pick my top 3 embellishments in the February kits, I'd have to include the word strips (there are some in the Maggie Holme's ephemera pack as well as the Citrus Twist exclusive cutaparts) because they're ALWAYS a favourite, the cork pieces (love cork!!), and the puffy stickers. And then I'd tell you to ask me again because I couldn't possibly leave the die cut words off the list...or the glittery ephemera.. and I'd pretty much keep going on and on and on.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and get some crafty time in!
