Hi guys! Today I am sharing my process for Layout 07 in our Bermuda Honeymoon album, called Destiny! I am using the April Documenter kit from Studio Calico called Written in the Stars, and you guys, it is lovely.
Here is a look at the full layout:
I have to admit that the Documenter kit really helped me develop more of the story on this layout, and for that I am so happy! I ran with the theme of Destiny, as in it was our destiny to find each other and begin a new life together, and it was our destiny to be in Bermuda for our honeymoon. Love it!
Continuing my design concept for this album: using soft, muted colors and simple embellishing to allow the beauty of the photos to shine.
These are photos from the inside of the hotel lobby, and I am so glad I took these!
These are the last of the photos from around the hotel, so in my next video we will begin exploring the island! I can’t wait for you to join me for that!
Thanks so much for joining me today! See you back here again soon!
Hi guys! Today I am sharing my Introduction pages in my Bermuda Honeymoon album! I chose the pineapple vellum from an older Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss collection on top of the first 9×12 pocket page. The pockets were filled with Studio Calico Documenter kit goodies and embellished with Freckled Fawn!
As I am diving into this album and working with these photos, I am realizing just how chock-a-block full of inspiration Bermuda truly is. Obviously the island is just stunning and natural, so many colors and textures and views! And these photos are just the muse I’ve needed.
Of course you know I had to use some vellum and I have been saving this pineapple vellum for ever!!! I opened Procreate on my iPad and wrote Bermuda in my handwriting, then brought it into Silhouette and cut it out. Love it!
Then for the first pocket page I used one simple flower photo and the rest filler cards. All these cards are from the Studio Calico Documenter kit from February, and then I added a few very tiny embellishments from Freckled Fawn. The black and white washi tape is Crate Paper, and the die cut floral is Pink Paislee Moonstruck.
I am keeping everything very light and airy in this album. I really want the photos to shine, and all the embellishments and journal cards play supporting roles.
Hi guys! Today I am finishing up the hybrid portion of my layout for Week 06 in my 2017 Project Life album! This is my first time working with the Studio Calico Documenter kits – this one is Confidant from February.
Yesterday I shared with you the digital portion of creating my layout in Photoshop, and today the layout has been printed here at home on my wide format Canon Pixma. The digital layout was created in Photoshop CC using Pocket Guide templates from Paislee Press and the March ROAR MPM kit, both from The Lilypad. Now I am ready to embellish and finish it up!
Most of this week’s story revolved around me being sick with the flu – I was sick in total about 10 days. But you know how we moms do – we struggle to put ourselves to bed and so we continue going along, pushing through. There are photos from half of the week as I pushed through, and then I came to a complete stop to finally rest and recover.
I began the layout with the date card and couldn’t wait to use this rubber February word! Notice too how I layered the puffy sticker over the two patterned paper rectangles to tie them together. They now read as one card together. How fun!
I really liked using the hexagon stickers that were included in the Confidant kit. Those add a nice touch of color and simple embellishment!
For the right hand side I included my list journaling of all our tasks that week. Yes, the numbering is actually designed to notate the dates of the month, but I left them just as they are for whimsy. I can also say that those days I was sick felt like a whole month!
I am so thankful that life is so filled with all sorts of joy amidst the sickness and struggle. These Project Life layouts absolutely remind me of that weekly, the hard with the good, the happy with the bad. Finding Natalie’s stuffies all lined up on her headboard made us smile so much!
So when you’re sick as a dog, what do you take photos of? Simple, just what is in front of you. Tomato soup, the kids laughing at the dinner table, Alan ever at my side. All reminders that I am taken care of, and all the things I am so very grateful for.
Thank you so much for following along today! I hope this layout has been inspiring for you! See you soon!
