Hi everyone, Diane here with a really quick spread in my Life Crafted album.
Nothing picks me up quicker on those days when I'm feeling a bit meh than a little gratitude. So today I put together a gratitude spread in my Life Crafted album using the September Life Crafted kit and the Good Life stamp set.
I knew the "today's victories" 3x4 card from the kit would be perfect for this type of page so I grabbed it out, along with some of the gorgeous florals from the die cut pack. I also grabbed another co-ordinating 3x4 card but ended up swapping it out for a piece of light pink patterned paper from the kit after I decided I would keep the page fairly monochromatic.
I started with some base pages I made from pink card stock, these are trimmed to 5x8.25 inches each and hole punched to fit my album. Then I trimmed a strip from the woodgrain paper so it would fit on the left hand page. I kept the smaller strip and added it to the right hand page.
Before I adhered those pieces down, I ran the edges around with my sewing machine and distressed them with a distressing tool. I also heat embossed one of the stamps from the Good life kit with a sparkly antique silver embossing powder.
I added my journalling in pink ink, and adhered everything down, including the florals which I place in 3 different focal points. I made sure to adhere my Instax photo with a couple of staples to make sure it never comes unstuck from the page!
Last step was to add a few of the puffy heart stickers in co-ordinating woodgrain tones across the spread.
Here's a look at the process this layout took ...
