Odessa’s August Life Pages Spread


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!
