Project Life {May 2016}

After making my way through my Week in the Life album, I haven't been getting much new creating done. To help change that, I took a little bit of time on Sunday and printed out my photos for May and gathered the supplies I wanted to use. Then I let it sit for a couple of days to allow the ideas arrive on their own.

Since I had pulled paper from the Homebodies kit as well as The Great Escape, I let those themes guide me in determining how I would arrange my photos and came up with two distinct piles, one of photos at home and one of photos being out and about (or at least headed out).

Laying out the pages, I copied the same format for the front and the back and then added my embellishments. I'd like to say that these came together quickly, but I'd be lying because as usual I had to change my mind half a dozen times. This time it was regarding the stamped bits of paper. :)

patterned paper, 3x4 cards - Homebodies and The Great Escape - Brandi Kincaid for Feed Your Craft
grid patterned paper, chipboard hearts and stars - Studio Calico
flair badge - Hangry mini kit - One Little Bird for Kelly Purkey
alphabet stamps - Greenpoint - Kelly Purkey
ink - Soft Granite - Hero Arts
