I began arranging my June photos into pockets with cards, but got no further once I remembered that I wanted to include an additional page to record the beginning of my journey to a healthier me. I had taken a picture as I headed out for my morning walk, but at the time didn't know what I would do with it. Then an idea struck me like a lightening bolt and I was off and running.
Using the same method that I shared here for segmenting a photo in PSE, I turned my square picture into multiple images to print as 4x6 photos for my 9x12 pocket page. I was torn for adding my title with alphabet stickers versus a stamp set, but I really wanted to try stamping on a photo. In the end I reminded myself that I could print the photos again should anything go awry.
Taking my time, I spelled each word backwards so that they were all right justified and while it's not perfect, I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I don't know if I'll introduce more stamping on photos, but I don't think I'm as scared to try anymore.
When it came time to select cards for the back, I decided to dig into my growing collection of digital products. I chose digital papers from One Little Bird's Postscript pack and turned some into plain 3x4 cards and also did a little experimenting with adding portions of digital paper along with digital watercolor splatters to others. The card in the center was made with the font, Eveleth and behind two of the cards I have my journaling.
My cards are printed on 65 lb white card stock and once trimmed, I added stamping to two cards (in pink) and created some stamped labels. In the end I used 5 different sets and it felt good to be putting them to use.
If you have any further questions about the techniques or supplies I've used, don't hesitate to ask. I hope you have a fantastic weekend! :)
