Nathalie’s Life Pages Using July Kits

1 Comment

While I drool over pictures of the August kits, I have been having a lot of fun with the July kits (still available in the store)! I just finished two spreads and wanted to share them with you:

I love the colorways of this kit! The pops of red, blue and green worked so well with a lot of my photos. Most of the supplies are from the Life Pages kit but I also added a few embellishments (and stamps) from the July Scrapbook kit. I love how the kits coordinate so well!

My title card and the multi colored card below it were the foundation of this spread. I will often start with a favorite or two and build the rest around them:

For a little eye catching detail, I added the small alpha stickers directly on my photo following the shape of the plate. I have seen this done with writing a lot but since I was afraid it wouldn’t look good with my handwriting I did it with stickers! The trick is to position the letters on transparent packaging first to see how to fit them.

On the top of the right side, I lined up several stickers and other embellishments to make a border on the edge of the card. It’s even better when you can vary the textures/materials and there are many in the kits! Here we have chipboard, stickers, rubber, washi and puffy sticker:

The journaling card was created with paper, stamp and sticker from the Scrapbook kit. The arrow placed on top of the pockets is from the Planner kit. I have never placed something between pockets before like that but I really like it!

My second spread also uses the July Life Pages kit along with a few items from the Scrapbook kit:

In a few words, I added a couple of touches of red on my photos and a bit of machine stitching to two of my cards. I concentrated my attention on a grouping at the bottom right of the spread and on creating layers on the top right by using cards, label and chipboard.

Here a few more details:

 

Ideas to try:

1- place an embellishment across pockets on top of the page protector

2- use alpha stickers following a shape in a photo

3- create a grouping on the edge of a card varying textures and colors

4- place a sticker across a stamped title

5- create layers with several cards

 

Thank you for stopping by! Happy creating!
