Hello, Felicitas here to inspire you with another craft project using the fabulous October kits!
A few weeks back, I started a second pocket pages album to capture more pictures and stories beyond our daily routines than there’s space in my 6×12 Project Life® album. Since I am way too lazy to make entire mini albums for our mini adventures, hiking or weekend trips, I thought this is a great solution for me. I call it the “adventure album” and this Life Pages spread is showing one of our short hiking trips. And while I’m usually not a big fan of pink in combination with purple, brown or maroon tones, I really like how the completed page turned out.
In my Project Life® album, I title every week and write a headline in the very first picture of the spread. I did the same thing here and used a transparent tag as guideline as I positioned all my letters on it to spell out my word. This way I can move the composed headline freely over my photo and actually see where it would look best or center it exactly. When I found the best spot, I just press the letters down, hold them and remove the transparent sheet carefully.
From time to time I glue some embellishments on top of the plastic. That’s a fun way to bring more texture on your layout or to incorporate objects that are usually too high for the tight pockets like those tiny cute acrylic hearts.
Layering different kinds of embellishments is also a good way to add interest to your project. I combined paper pieces with foil, wood and transparent shapes as well as stamped sentiments.
The last 3×4 pocket was the most fun to create: I used some rub-ons from the October kits to embellish the wood veneer in a modern and colorful way. Then I glued the whole piece on top of the pocket to be able to actually feel the texture of it.
And that’s it! This spread took me barely 20 minutes and it’s so fun to look at. Thanks for stopping by today, now get creative and I’ll see you next month!
