October Documented

The other night I realized that I hadn't given the slightest thought to documenting October in my everyday album. I've been focused on working in my Thankful album when I have time and thoughts of December Daily have been creeping in, so I completely forgot about getting last month in the books.

I'm not gonna lie, I've been excited about putting the Pattern Play kit to use, and everything came together so quickly! I paired the kit with some of my beloved papers from Basic Grey and got to cutting.

I made a layout to act as my divider page for October using the kit stamps, die cuts, and a chipboard sticker. I added my stamping in a golden yellow to make sure I tied my page into the others and the warm tones they had.

For my first pocket page, I layered hexagons with more of the die cuts onto the back side of the cards from the kit. On the other side, I cut one of the 4x6 cards in half and added patterned paper triangles and another chipboard shape. The stamping is from the Out and About stamp set, and bonus, the small sentiments fit inside the tabs that are included in the Pattern Play die cut packs!

My last page uses more cards from the kit with thin strips of patterned paper. I brought back the golden yellow ink and stamped the star cluster on each of the journaling cards. I added a couple of die cuts, popping one up on foam adhesive. Love my dimension! For my monthly Read More page, I used the new Marker Alphabet stamp set to make my title card and added labels to review what I'd read.

I had a lot of fun working with the newest kit to hit the shop and I hope that if you pick one up, you enjoy creating with it, too!

  1. This is such a hard time of year when all the projects start to overlap! These are beautiful pages Elise -I love your photos and your elegant way of documenting them. I'm excited to get the Pattern Play kit. It's so different from everything else out there and I can envision it working on all sorts of projects.

    1. Thank you so much, Susan! It so often feels like there are too many projects and not enough time, I'm sure you can relate! I can't wait to see what you create with your kit, I know it's going to be amazing! :)

  2. Those pages are gorgeous! I LOVE the touches of colors from the Basic Grey papers!

    1. Thanks a bunch, Nathalie! I had to use them sparingly because I don't have a lot left. :)


Thank you so much for taking your time to comment, I truly appreciate all your kind words!
