It’s Jill Cornell here with you today to bring you this month’s two-page layout inspiration. I’m continuing my Life Pages style this month and this layout is entirely composed of iPhone photos.

This page protector from Simple Stories features spaces for a lot of 4×6 cards. Because I like to include a lot of photos on my monthly spreads, I try to place at least 2 photos on each card. This month’s kits had a lot of great labels for adding journaling.

There are lots of great embellishments perfect for Life Pages spreads this month. Here I incorporated a lot of wood veneer and stickers.

On the second page, I used the 2 x 12 space to showcase the tiny photos of what I read this month. And a short four-letter title was easy to place on top with the Crate Paper chipboard letters. Additionally, my girls have taken off with reading so it was especially important to me to document that this month.

Finally, big news in our house this month was the new carpet we installed in our living room. It was fun to do a before and after (plus share what we found underneath during the install).

Ewa’s LP Spreads

0 Comments

Hey, hi and hello in April, it’s Ewa here.

Today I have some Life Pages spreads for you. In the fact I need to catch up with some previous weeks so I used all April’s kits to make new LP spreads with previous months.

This month’s topic was winter but I think that April kits are suitable for all seasons! :)

Quick Easy Art

0 Comments

Moving to a new country leaves you with a lot of things. Three of these things are a completely new, undecorated apartment, barely any time, and less money than you’re used that first month. Because of these things, I made some easy wall art with the April kits.

First I made three simple squares with a word that’s important to me, and a simple sticker.

I stuck these squares onto a sheet of vellum to get a soft look.

I tested out what the different papers looked like behind the vellum. What usually helps me is to take a quick photo of what each option looks like. Then I scroll through the photos to see which I prefer. This way helps me to be objective, and to view them together quickly. I ended up choosing the kraft paper to keep it simple.

The art went into a simple Ikea frame, I stuck the vellum down with washi tape so that it doesn’t move around.

And there you go. Something simple and cheap that I can use in my space to give it some personality. Now to drill a hole…
