Hello Everybody, Carrie here with a February spread in my Project Life album. I used the gorgeous Practically Perfect Kit and gave it a bit of a love theme for February. We’ve been coated in a bunch on snow here in Seattle the last couple weeks which is not normal, so I wanted to make sure to document some of our snow days. These photos are a little over a week old and we have so much more snow now it’s crazy. The photos from this day in particular are some of my favorites because of the snow and sunshine together, as well as my daughter playing in the yard with one of our dogs.
To begin this spread I quickly decided on using a pocket page of three 4x6 inch photos. I placed the photo of my daughter in the middle and cut two 4x6 inch cards from one of the 12x12 inch floral papers. The floral paper cards I added to the pockets above and below my photo. Next I decided to use two sizes of heart shaped dies and cut a bunch of hearts out of solids sections of paper from some of the planner inserts.
I layered the die cut hearts together on the floral cardstock both above and below my photo. To give them a little dimension I used red line tape at the bottom of each heart and a thin foam adhesive at the top.
As a final touch for this side I used the “superclifragilistic” and “expialidocious” stickers from the sticker sheet and added them with a thin foam adhesive. To give a little more interest I decided to place one on my photo and the other on the paper below.
On the opposite page I started out by adding the “s” and “p” in Pink Paislee Thickers to one of the 2x3 inch photos (it’s a photo of snow), to identify my daughter and our dog. I used the same pink paper as one of the heart dies to fill in the empty space of the “p” because I feel like it makes the letters easier to read and I like the look. To help tell the story of my daughter’s relationship with our dog Ponyo, I also decided to use one of my small heart punches and punched out a heart from one of the same red papers as the other hearts. I used foam adhesive and placed it in between the two initials. To finish off this little 3x4 inch pocket I added the super cute yellow pom pom paperclip from the stationery pack. I love seeing these pom poms stick out of my albums.
Once I had the rest of my photos placed for this 9x12 inch page I added the cute yellow quote card from one of the cut apart sheets in an empty 3x4 inch pocket. I could have left it just like that but thought that the two penguins reminded me of my daughter and Ponyo playing in the snow. Because I didn’t have a lot of space on the card I cut the smallest pair of penguins out of one of the cut apart sheets. I added them to the card with red line tape at the bottom and foam adhesive at the top. To help tell the story of the pair having fun I also placed the “yay” sticker from the sticker sheet, tucking one end under a penguin and popping up the other end with foam adhesive.
I knew I wanted to add journaling to the last 3x4 inch pocket so I cut a notepaper card from one of the planner inserts. Typically I’ll add journaling using my typewriter, but this time decided that the photos told enough of the story that all I wanted to write was a descriptive title and the date. I used the same Pink Paislee Thickers for my text and used the same pink paper to fill in the empty spaces in the letters. To help tie in the floral paper I decided to add the red tulip die cut from the die cut pack, again only popping up the top with foam adhesive and tucking the bottom into the text. Since I thought the sunshine and snow were so pretty together I also placed the “wow” sticker from the sticker sheet above the flower using foam adhesive…..and that’s it!
Thanks so much for taking a look at my project and I’ll see you next time : ) Carrie
