Odessa’s August Life Pages Spread

0 Comments

Hi everyone and happy Monday!

Odessa here today and I’m sharing a layout I made using  the August Life Pages kit.

I just loved the colours in this kit – I don’t usually like oranges and reds but they really suit the last bit of summer so well. Paired with the pinky-peach in the kits and I was swooning over everything.

I had my pictures picked out already so I started by picking some journal cards from the kit. I loved the This is How We Do It card so I had to use it. The colours in it ended up informing the palette of my entire layout. I also put in the card with the 5 Ws to get a bit more journalling in there.

Then I started pulling out some orange/red/peachy embellishments and got busy with colour. I often start by picking out some phrase stickers that go with my pictures – the But First Caffeinate one was the first thing I stuck down, it went perfect with my cold brew float picture! I added some enamel dots and a tag to journal on and the middle was all done! 

From there I worked my way out. More phrase stickers, some alphas and stamping. I journaled on the 5 Ws card and even added some embellishing to it. It was just too plain. White space is my enemy!

I had a fun map in the top corner that was actually some wall art in the donut store we were at. I marked some of the places we visited using the arrow stamp and some alphas. The map was too busy to just write on and I did not want to cover too much of the drawing. 

A few more journal spots, some enamel dots and washi and my layout was all done. All those warm summery colours are perfect together!

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great week!

Nothing says summer, like adventure. I was so excited to see “adventure” as a theme throughout the June kits.

I made a couple pocket pages, mixing items from a few of the kits. The color scheme of mustard, turquoise, and light red was perfect for documenting and planning for summer adventures!

Using word strip stickers from the planner kit, I made a little cluster of words that reminded me of some of my favorite things about summer. I also added a few photos from past adventures Cody (my boyfriend) and I have gone on.

Everything about these pocket pages makes me want to make fun summer memories. I can’t wait to use other pieces from the kits to document future fun!

I’m looking forward to seeing how y’all document your summer adventures with this kit!

Ok. Seriously. I am pretty sure I am going to say that every Life Pages Kit is my new favourite, but this one miiiiight just take the cake. It had me at Mermaid Vibes which I just had to use on this layout. Luckily this kit coincided with our first camping trip of the year and the pictures went perfect with the kit!! I get all giddy about camping season and love documenting all the adventures I go on with my family.

This kit has a lot of vibrant colours going on, which go great with summery pictures! I decided to use only the Life Pages kit on this layout and had no trouble putting this together quickly!

After picking out my pictures (I had quite the stack to work from!) I started with the Good Vibes only card – I really liked the bright pink and yellow on it. From there I picked some cards and embellishments with similar tones as well as a bit of blue. And the Mermaid Vibes card! I paired that with some of the sequins in the kit for sparkly underwater vibes.

I used a 4×6 picture cut down to fit in the pockets as the title for the page. the pic is super pretty so I went simple – a tag from the kit to document date and place and some quick words paired with the super pretty relax stamp from the stamp set included in the kit. With the rich water tones it made sense to have the Mermaid Vibes card next to it.

In the second row I have a circular picture mounted on a bright 3×4 card (my current accent photo fav technique) with two full 3×4 pictures on either side. I reinforced the circular motif with some circular chipboard and puffy stickers from the kit and then added all the hearts and journaling I needed via tags and a word puffy sticker.

In the last row I have the Good Vibes card which I stamped with the ampersand from the stamp set. I have some pictures on either side, mounted on journal cards from the set. Then I have some more puffy and chipboard pictures to add the words. And the This Lazy Life stamp, which I can see myself using A LOT. Haha. 

I find picking out a colour or two to serve as a theme is a great way to start a layout. The pink and yellow are not even really present in my pictures, or even go with them, but using them as a focal point and as guidance when selecting other elements to add to the page really helps bring things together. Adding in blue as a secondary colour based on it being present in some of the photos makes the colours a bit more solid and work even better together. 

Thanks for stopping by today, see you soon!
