Guessing Game #5 - Playing with Project Life with April

Happy Friday and Happy Project Life Day!

It's April again!  I'm back to share one of the PL spreads I completed using the July PL and Embellies Kits!

I know I probably say this every time, but I think July's kits have been my favorite to date.  I loved the color palette this month and the fact that, again, it was packed with so many goodies!


This month, we received a mask in the Embellie add-on.  I don't typically use mists and masks, but I'm definitely planning to start incorporating them more because they are SO fun!  The mask included the "week in review", "love it", and "yum" statements - super perfect for PL!



I've noticed that I have been using flip pockets a lot lately. This week was no exception. I received a thank you card in the mail and wanted to include both the front and the inside text of the card, so I created a flip pocket that flipped to the side (instead of from top).  This was a quick and easy pocket made by using the blue chevron washi that came with this month's kits:


I'm a typically very square-ish person when it comes to shapes/layouts (and maybe in real life too?! LOL!), so it was fun to play around with hexagons on a couple of my cards this month.


The sequins that came in the kit were so pretty, so I sprinkled them around a few of my cards.  The "explore everyday" quote came from a 3x4 journaling card that I fussy cut.  I saw the quote "collect moments, not things" on Pinterest and liked it so much that I made my own journaling card.


And last, but not least, here are your sketches!


**Note:  The red Jillibean alphas are from my stash as is the Mister Huey's mist that I used on the mask.  I also used a couple of stamps from previous CTK kits (Jen Boumis' stamp and the Dear Lizzy stamp roller).

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a $5 GC to the CTK store!
