Its time for Paper Camellia August kits.. and they are so awesome! I was working with the Everyday Life kit shown above. It is so full of awesome.. gold, glitter, arrows, metallics.. but lets just jump right in instead!
Its funny that using a project life kit the first thing I made was a layout. I was just really in love by this card from Echo Parks Capture Life collection and I knew I wanted it to be more than just an insert into my project life. Plus scrapbooking 6×8 makes putting portrait 4×6 cards in a bit awkward. I fussy cut out the words then stuck them on using pop dots behind the word love so it stood out a bit more. The other bits are also cut from cards in the kit… no pattern paper used on this layout!
A few first here happend while creating this project life spread. I am not a huge ephemera person…oh don’t get me wrong.. I collect it, I have piles and shoeboxes full, but when it comes to putting it in project life I just don’t. I forgot about it or just feel it looks messy, so I am trying to include more of it.. I mean thats what scrapbooks are for right? This screen capture of the Paper Camellia design team announcement was an important event for me so I had to make sure it was included. It ended up taking up one page, so really cut down the space for that week and I didn’t want one week spread across two spreads…so I cut down one of the page protectors to make a little insert to make it feel like they were connected. Another first for me is finally having the space to make peek through pockets! Scrapping in 6×8 size doesn’t often leave room for empty pockets like this but I love how they look in project life albums. I really want to include these in more often.. I love seeing the next week peeking through.
Psssttt.. I am going to tell you a secret… all of the photos in my week 26 spread are from the same morning ha ha. Pretty uneventful week that week but thats how life is right?
Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you head over to Paper Camellia to check out what the rest of the talent design team created with these awesome kits!
