Hello, hello!! Jody here today and oh how I’ve missed blogging! As you have probably seen, I’ve been busting my butt behind the scenes these last few months getting ready for big things in 2016. The first big thing was the tripling of my Design Team, The Sparklers!! They are a fabulous bunch of ladies from around the globe!! I hope you had a chance to check the Design Team reveal posts HERE and HERE.
Today, I’m sharing a Project Life spread I’ve been playing around with for the last few days. These photos are from the first day of school this year and now that I’m looking at them here, Sari is taller.. up to my neck!! I need to put a brick on that girl’s head to slow her down!! Sheesh.. ok mommy rant over.
I’m using the We R Memory Keepers photo sleeves and really love them. They’re thicker plastic than the Project Life sleeves, which is HUGE for me. I’ve ripped too many of the PL brand ones because I tend to like chunky embellishments and it’s tough to squeeze them into the pockets. I really do try to keep my pocket pages pretty simple. It doesn’t always happen, but it’s thought that counts for me LOL!! I am trying to get caught up after all… eh’em….
Another thing I’ve been working on lately is using the papers in my stash. This can definitely be a challenge though because by the time I have a couple papers left in a collection or some larger scraps to work with, most or all of the coordinating embellishments have been used up. Adding those little details are what I absolutely love to do and that’s when I reach for the unique embellishments from the Scrap Shopright here! Whether it’s cork, sequins,felt die cuts or another fun embellishment, I always have something thats just right.
Below, I’ve added the Chunky Cork Hearts to the bottom middle pocket and really love the contrast and texture they add. They have the perfect earthy feel that works well with all the colors on the page.
Thanks so much for stopping in today! I hope you’ve enjoyed my back to school spread today. If you’re interested, I’ve linked the products from my Scrap Shop below.
