Hey ya’ll! I hope you’re having a great day!
The first project I worked on with the May collection was for day 48 of the RUKristin 100 Days of All About Me project. The topic is about your pets.
If you remember from last month, I am doing my project in a handmade album that was inspired by Jessica Upton on instagram. The album pages measure 4.5″X8.5″ and use 6 binder rings (to match the hole punch I use).
This prompt was all about pets, and the only pet that I have is a cat named Eleanor.
I used a TN paper from Traci Reed’s XOXO collection as the background (I liked the simple pattern and it was already on my desk) printed on cardstock paper. I also printed and cut out the May elements from the Ordinary Moments kit. I layered two triangle tags at the bottom and stamped 48 on there using some Ali Edwards stamps, for it being the 48th prompt in Kristin’s 100 Prompts.
I used a 2″ circle to punch out the picture of my cat (she was standing on the stairs the day of my wedding wondering why there were so many people in her house- we got married in our back yard and the bridal party was getting ready in the house). I layered this image of her on a circle that was cut from the elements page with a green border and pretty red flowers. I put an ‘ordinary moments’ cut out over that.
I used some black glittery American Crafts alpha’s from my stash to spell out her name. I layered two strips of paper behind a premade text box from the cut apart sheet for my journaling and layered that below her name. You guys know me, I like to keep things simple and I am really enjoying this size right now.
The next two projects for the month of May were both single page spreads for my Travelers Notebook insert. They both document an event from Mother’s Day weekend, where a friend of mine got married and the other is a picture with another friend, whom I took out on Mother’s Day.
Once again I resized and printed papers from the kit to fit my size and then printed them out together (this time on regular printer paper since they’re going into a TN insert that is already bound together).
The page on the left documented the adventure a friend and I went on on Mother’s Day. I took her to the GeekCraft Expo in Durham, NC, where we both got a new pair of ears (mine are a galaxy cat pair and hers are a set of fox ears). Afterwards we went to McDonalds for lunch, which is where the picture was snapped. The flower elements, the heart, and the “different is beautiful” piece are all from the “Let Your Heart Decide” collection from Pinkfresh Studios (received in my May Clique Kit subscription). I used a red/orange label that matched perfectly from the Ordinary Moments cut apart sheet.
The project on the right was to document a wedding I attended the day before Mother’s Day. This page is super simple and there isn’t much to it. I used several elements from the same cut apart sheet (two hexagons that were cut off at the edges, the date label, the green label where I wrote a tiny bit of journaling, the today strip (it is on the edge of the photo), and the special days label). Super simple, but I really wanted to document this (it’s the bridesmaids, the flower girl and ring bearer, and the bride being silly. It was originally just supposed to be the bridesmaids but we got photo bombed).
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my projects for this month! Make sure you get your own digital Ordinary Moments kit and share your projects with us!
