I loved the colors in this month's Life Crafted kit and wanted to focus on my color palette, while keeping the layout simple. I think I accomplished that goal and am happy with the way it turned out!
I cut one of the patterned papers down to my 4x8" traveler's notebook size. Then, layered a few other patterned papers behind my photo. On the right side, I used two journaling cards from the kit. The orange card served as the pop of color on my layout, and also as a place for my journaling.
My favorite part of this layout is the "LOVE" journaling card. I stamped three simple phrases in crisp black ink across each word. It's a simple embellishment, but I love the bold statement it adds!
Using puffy stickers, die cuts, and chipboard pieces from the kit, I added embellishments to the left side of my layout. Then, stamped a simple phrase below my cluster to finish off that side.
I decided to add my layout into my Life Crafted album because I had the perfect spot for it. If I wanted to add this to a TN insert instead, I would simply add a pocket page in to my insert as a tip-in (using washi tape) - easy peasy!
And now for the challenge pieces - I have two for you today! First, I challenge you to try a new layout style in your TN. Whether that's adding in a pocket page or a fold-out, just try something new! Second, I challenge you to use your stamps as your main form of embellishing on your layout.
I hope this inspires you to jump out of your comfort zone and try new things! I'll see you soon with more crafty inspiration.
