I can’t quiet believe that I’ve been scrapbooking for 6 whole months! It’s really been one of the best decisions I’ve made recently and I already love going back and flipping through the memories we’ve made and documented so far. My June Project Life spread is maybe one of my favourites to date so let me show you what happened!
I usually have a title card and colour scheme for the month already prepared but with being so busy recently I was just flying by the seat of my pants. I just went with the flow and put it all together in one go while I was making up the rest of my cards and I love how it turned out! This was also the first time I used the a so-called ‘kit’ for a spread. I don’t actually subscribe to a service but when I was in TK Maxx a while ago I found a couple of the My Minds Eye collection packs made up and couldn’t leave them alone. This spread is full or florals, bright pastels (is that an oxymoron) and wood grain.
The first page mostly details our trip to the Royal Highland Show. Also featured is my favourite picture from our holiday at the beginning of the month along with a bit about Father’s day. I felt the photos in the right-top and left-bottom corner needed a bit of basing so I took a plain white card and added some watercolour on the edges to tie it in the with the spread. Really love how that turned out!
The second side covers a spa day with my mum, my best friend’s graduation, more from the Highland Show and another card from Father’s Day. Speaking of which, I might go back and add a bit of stamping to that one… It looks a bit unfinished in these photos.
I wasn’t sure about some of the woodgrain cards to begin with but I’m positively smitten with them now!
I also took care to use my date-stamp more this month as I’ve been neglecting it a bit. I also used up some embellishments from the both the kit and my stash which adds a lovely bit of interest to the cards. I do have another 6×8 pocket insert for this month with all my extra bits like movies we watched and books I’ve read this month, but I forgot to take photos of it! It does stick with the colour palette of this spread though so just use your imagination 🙂
Can’t believe we’re into the last half of the year! I really hope the weather bucks up it’s ideas for July… I have the perfect ice-cream ‘themed’ spread which I want to break out!
