My next process video is for 2017 Week 39. Let’s take a look.
Here is the completed layout for this week.
Our stories this week were not very exciting: Alan traveled all week so things were quiet with him gone. Not a lot of photos, so I printed an enlargement here and added the others to fill in the page.
I could not wait to get my hands on the Sahlin Studio Project Life Value Kit called Stories! That is what I have used here and it is stunning. I have chosen mostly neutral cards and just tiny pops of color across the layout. Perfect.
The Documented card is the perfect date card here. I have added my date using a alphabet stamp set from Kerri Bradford and a tiny asterisk from Ink & Twine.
My favorite part about Project Life kits is that you receive so many cards, you can cut them up and layer them and use them for embellishments on your layout, and still have lots for more layouts! I have layered several cards here and I am loving the flat look to the page. The wood veneer pieces are from Gossamer Blue.
Look how stunning this card is! If I had to choose two design elements as favorites, color and pattern would be the easy winners. This pattern just caught my breath! I added a simple stamped element and a tiny camera puffy sticker, all in black and white.
This photo makes me laugh every time. I took this photo while I was filming for In My Pocket Volume 01, the lesson about burn-out. I was seriously burned out at this point and I am glad I could include it here. These are the best reminders that life is hectic, life is overwhelming at times, but we make it through it and hopefully, at the end of the day we can still laugh at ourselves!
Alan had an extremely hectic travel schedule during this week, going to visit a client in NY and TX back to back. I’ve used this photo of the plane enlarged here, with a wood veneer from Heidi Swapp layered on top. I also invited his voice and hand writing on the card below, documenting his journeys.
I love how the journaling card worked out for this page. Five lines were perfect for the five locations, and I added arrows for a bit of color and direction. This is a great example of using product to help tell this story.
The last card is this classic Sahlin Studio camera icon, and I have added a title using my handwriting and the stamps. I also added a tiny wooden heart inside the drawn heart. So simple and not very complicated at all.
