Playing with Pocket Life ~ Guest Designer Rachel

Hello, hello! This is Rachel here, your July Guest Designer. In this blog post, I’ll be sharing with you my second PL spread using July Pocket Life kit – Sunkissed and PL Embellishment kit – Hello Sun. This week’s spread is loaded with tons of big photos – one of the many weeks where we got to have family outing, being out and about and catching up with friends. Well hey, it was the mid year school holiday after all! Here’s the full spread of my week 24 – lots of greens and colors from the photos. Hence I used mostly white cardstock for the pockets and embellished individual cards with the alphabets stickers, overlay stickers and the oh-so adorable puffy stickers.

On the left hand side of the PL spread, I decided to use a big photo as my title card which is something Ihave never tried before and I love the effect. The pastel color journal tags are so versatile and go well with the rest of the supplies. And oh yes, I heart this month’s stamp set that is included in the PL kit! I had the words ‘You are funny’ stamped on the right bottom corner photo of my boys being silly with the fruits while we were at a supermarket.

Here is a close up of the left side:
