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!

Tags from Life Pages Cards

It’s no secret that I love making tags. It is such a fun way to use little bits and pieces from the kits! Today I have a set of tags that I designed using cards from the Life Pages kit. I love how they turned out.

To start off, I looked through all of the cards. I chose ones that had pretty designs, but not a lot of words on them. This way I could add my stickers or chipboard to create the sentiments. I picked four that coordinated well so that I could have a matching set.

 

Next, I looked through the Crate Paper ephemera packs for pretty die cuts that coordinated with the designs on the cards. I selected some pretty florals, the hello word and a couple of smaller tags. I love to layer on my projects, so these were the perfect pieces to do that with. They also added some contrast to the straight lines of the Life Pages cards.

The next thing I reached for were some of the chipboard pieces and blank labels. I love adding them to the projects and layering them together. I used foam adhesive with some of the labels to give the tags some added dimension.

I also used some of the Crate Paper stickers to add details to the tags. The smaller stickers make great accent pieces and the words can be used as sentiments.

 

Finally, I chose some coordinating ribbon pieces and stapled them to the top. Here is a look at how all four tags looked together. I love the colors this month and this set truly highlights them!

The tags can be used in lots of ways. Sometimes I tuck them into little envelopes and use them as messages for friends and family. Sometimes, I adhere them onto blank cards and can write more that way. I also love to hole punch them and use them in my planners as to do list. And since I decorate the front pockets of my planners, I can use them there, too. There are so many possibilities!

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you found some fun inspiration!
