The bright, bold patterns in this range really helped to bring my pics to life and the 6x6" paper pad gave me more than enough variety for the entire month of memories.
As shared in my previous post, I used a white paint pen to add some dots to a kraft cardstock background in several of my pockets and used up some of the larger die-cut pieces from the ephemera pack. I try to include something to reflect the cost of living in our albums each year, and decided to document the rising cost of petrol this month.
I often look for items that will unify each month and decided to create more of the little scalloped frames I used for the first part of the month - I simply traced around one of the cut apart words from the paper pad with a black sharpie and added a small scalloped border before cutting it out to add to my pockets.
Breaking up some of the patterns and adding one of the chipboard accents with a couple of hearts was a quick and easy way to create a journal card.
I've noticed that when my pages feature a lot of 'non-people' photos it can be a challenge to keep the page looking interesting, but these memories are just as important to document and I often rely on embellishments in a mix of sizes and textures to help add interest to my page.
Combining more gold foiled paper from the paper pad with another chipboard accent helped to dress up one of those 'non-people' pics.
Filler cards are also a great way to give your page a boost, and you really can't go wrong with a grouping of repeated items as adorable as the inflated hearts from this range.
I used some of the larger accents from the ephemera pack to fill in some of the negative space on the photo and as you might have already noticed, I like to group my embellishments into clusters and always try to mix up the layers with a few different textures which was definitely made easy thanks to the great variety of accents featured this collection.
