The last class that I've signed up for has begun and it's all about pocket pages. The first lesson was focusing on letting elements go off the edges of cards and pockets, which is something I've found myself doing plenty of this year. Since I have a special love for labels, I used a few with stamped sentiments and varied their positions on my cards. I also cut apart the card that says "May" and layered it on top of a card I wouldn't have otherwise used. And I got to put to use a card I made a little while ago with a stamp I won from Kellie Winnell. All of my journaling was printed on vellum using a font I happen to have that matched some of the cards from my kit.
The next page is all about food from the month that we made at home. I had gotten a Kelly Purkey mini kit some time ago because I loved the stamp, but wasn't sure I'd use the cards. I'm so glad I held on to them because they were perfect for my page. In the center is a card with a digital design I purchased from The Shiny Bits by Brandi Kincaid. I printed it on watercolor paper and colored portions of it using a water brush and Tim Holtz Distress Markers.
The last page I'm sharing is about events at home and down the road. I once again have a typo, and while it would be easy enough to fix, I'm going to leave it as is. :) Overall, I've seen some changes with my Project Life this year versus previous years and I'm really happy with how my spreads have evolved. I've loosened up about keeping each photo in chronological order and have found that it makes it easier for me to match my photos with the cards to make a more color coordinated spread.
How about you, have you made changes to your crafting processes that make it easier for you to create?
