I was short of time and decided to make it super quick and simple picking out just the main colours of aqua (and other shades of blue), pink and yellow from the main inspiration kit and pulled out some products for a Project Life spread. It looks like a lot but there is one sheet of full paper plus a cut apart sheet and then just some pocket cards and a handful of embellishments. I know that I will need to add a few more bits and pieces in there but this is a great start and most of the hard work is therefore done.
I've had that Elle's Studio set of labels for forever so it's time to get it used up. I've also had that veneer pocket card for a long time and I thought that it combined the veneer and word elements from the original kit.
A handful of pocket cards with designs and words tie in with the original and hopefully, will be useful as fillers.
I picked out that Crate cut apart sheet some weeks ago, knowing that I wanted to use it for my month titles. It's the perfect colours.
I realised that I have just three months outstanding for 2017 in my Project Life album and had already created that month card with the events so it seemed easier to go with this month instead of the two summer months which might have matched my products better.
I'm just showcasing the first page here but I expect this month to be two or three double spreads because I was on the road over Christmas and have some memorabilia and lots of pretty photos I'd like to include.
I like the usual colour scheme for this month but decided that I will try to ensure there is lots of gold element and thread across all pages to tie it all together and give it a festive feel.
I added in a couple of extra pocket cards to back photos and the word veneer below. I wonder if I should move that veneer to the outside pocket?
Keeping it simple.
I'll be back on the 18th with challenge #2 using my main kit so I hope to see you there!
