6x8 Project Life Spread | Jen Schow

Hello again! It's Jen Schow here to share my last project as May guest designer with you. This year, I started doing a 6x8 Project Life and I love the small size! I like to keep it very simple and use lots of photos because I don't have quite as much room. 

Today, I wanted to share with you how I still achieved a playful, but simple look using the Girly & Strong kit to document the week of March 20-26 (I document from Monday to Sunday).

To keep in line with my usual PL style, which is mostly black and white with pops of color, I chose black scripted phrases from the ephemera pack and cut the word "Friday" out of one of the patterned papers.

I often take my photos in such a way that there is a lot of "white space" for me to add journaling and embellishment directly to the picture. I added bits and pieces from the ephemera pack and some of the little phrase stickers in the open spaces for this week.

One of my favorite additions was one of the wood paperclips. They are fairly thin and don't add much bulk, so they are perfect. Instead of attaching it to something, I just put it right on top of my photo and the clip part kind of looks like an arrow pointing to my feet...cute!

I hope you can see how this bright and colorful kit can be used to create all sorts of layouts and projects - even with a bit of toned down color scheme!

Thanks so much for letting me share my projects with you this month. I can't wait to see what you've been making!
