Yet another Project Life installment! I’m having so much fun getting back into it and experimenting with the smaller size and looser format.
Hard to tell from this photo, but I included a mini layout between both pages, just to break up the symmetry of the spread a little bit. I mean, why not? I like to keep things interesting.
I wanted to include this super cute 2013 print from Urbanic, so I decided to just glue it on top of my page protectors and place the gorgeous Studio Calico aqua ombre paper underneath. I backed the print with white cardstock that I ran through my Cuttlebug with this polka-dot embossing folder, added a little embellishing, and called it good. I always forget how much I love that little embossing machine! Definitely need to bust it out more often this year.
You know it’s not one of my spreads unless there’s a heavy dose of hot pink, so I used a journaling card from Jamaica and topped it with a Studio Calico banner die-cut, an Amy Tangerine Daily Thicker, and a stamp that I designed for SC this past year.
For the mini layout, I tried to keep it as simple as possible (my general rule of thumb for PL, really). Minimal embellishments, a little bit of ephemera, and quick and easy journaling thanks to my typewriter. I didn’t even adhere the photobooth strips to the paper; they’re just held together by my trusty gold paperclips. Living life on the edge, as usual.
I’m in love with this graphic Crate Paper pattern and the way it brings all the rainbow colors in my spread together. Happy happy! And of course, how insanely awesome is Amy Tangerine’s calendar stamp?! Genius. Other products used here include the Yeah Yeah Yeah die-cut, mini alphas, and aqua washi tape.
The red phrase paper in the upper left corner is from a Fab.com mailer that I am convinced was designed with Project Life in mind. The purple Rose Bowl ticket in the center is just hanging out for now. I love the white space it gives my page and figure I will worry about what I will place on the other side of it when that time comes. Just roll with it.
So much fun, you guys. How are your books coming together?
