Project Life® – week five and six

I went for lots of embellishing again for this spread. I am also moving around the ‘date’ pocket to where is fits best. I’m fine with that I think it adds interest and get the eye moving about the page not just settling on the top left pocket.

Here are the two weeks together. I appear to have become addicted to washi tape……

I love that ‘you and me’ card with the little fox faces on it. The top left pocket is a map from Ikea. It’s been a while since we went there. I like the graphic-ness of it.

I ran out of design A pages but because I’d already edited lots of photos to fit those pocket  sizes I had to crop and chop quite a few of these images to get them to fit. I also struggle with the design D page protector. I like that the 3 x 4 cards are horizontal but if I haven’t taken a portrait photos I find it’s tricky getting a landscape 4 x 6 photo into those portrait 4 x 6 pockets.

That cute clip board card was perfect to cut into so that it fit over my photo. Here’s a close up.

And week six.

Although it is not as pleasing to the eye, having smaller photos on a larger canvas, it does give the opportunity for lots of embellishments like the Studio Calico speech bubble. I used my type writer to add the text to that and the teeny label on the photo of the leeks.

And there we have it.
