Sharing the first few days of February with you today.
I chose the Seafoam Edition for this week's layout. However I tend to be drawn to digital papers that have a little bit of a papery texture, so I used a layer style on the cards to give them some of that texture they were missing. You'll see in the closeups below.
Here's a look at the left side:
I ended up with a lot of photos for these few days, so I kept most of my journaling to a single card on the right hand page. I did include a vellum label (made with a label template and a vellum layer style) on my "feb 2014" card to jot a quick note about the photo of Austin reading a book.
I included a screenshot from one of the Facetime conversations we had with Brad while he was away in Atlanta. I "attached" the photo to the card using some digital stitches from creashens. I love the digital stitches because I can't sew for the life of me, and in digital format, I don't need to! Ha!
I added some digital thickers from Traci Reed for the bathtub photos, along with some text typed right onto the photo.
Here's a look at the right side:
A couple of additional vellum labels added, and the majority of the journaling in the top left pocket. I added a screenshot of the snowfall forecast from last week's storm with more of the digital stitching. Brad sent me a photo of him with his brother down in Georgia, so I added that to the layout as well.
For my journaling, I took one of the Seafoam cards (with the textured paper layer style added), and created a rounded cornered rectangle shape on top. I then applied a vellum layer style to that shape, which I did all of my journaling on. I added more stitches and then the "fore the record" embellishment from the Mye De Leon January Unscripted digital kit.
I definitely kept this layout more simple than last week's, but still added some creative touches. I am having so much fun playing with layouts!
My background paper is from Anita Designs' Digiscrap Parade freebie. I used my go-to templates from Cathy Zielske. My font is Pea C-Squared from Kevin & Amanda.
