Needless to say, I managed to get some photos for Week 23 | June 2 - 8.
At first, as I was sorting through my photos for the week, I didn't think I had that many. But after checking my Instagram feed as well, I discovered a few extra gems that were hidden away!
I really wanted to include these extra photos, so I grabbed the Simple Stories photo flip pocket and adhered one of the 4x6 pockets directly to my 12x12 pocket page.
I really love that this simple photo flip pocket idea, allows me to add extra details to complete the memory of these two days.
This week, I confess to using a PL card from last month's kit. I was hoarding it for this particular spread, because our local show was on and there is always a Ferris Wheel among the side show alley rides! I layered a Chic Tag directly in the centre of the Ferris Wheel image and added a small sticker that was reshaped into a pennant banner. I also appreciate that the colours blend beautifully with this month's kit.
On page two, I wanted to balance the rest of the spread by focusing on colour and journaling.
The colours in the July Kit are outstanding! I love the fresh touches of orange, coral, pink and teal!
This week, I've had some fun, playing with the PL cards included in the kit. I have taken the trimmer to my Week 23 title card, cutting just the top off. This allows me to create interest and white space on the 4x6 patterned paper base. And I certainly didn't want to hide that gorgeous ombre patterned paper!
Layers of embellishments have been added to both PL cards and photos. (Fireworks semi circle above, was created using Heidi Swapp clear stamps on white cardstock and then machine stitched to the PL card.)
And even the strip at the bottom of the Chic Tags patterned paper wasn't safe!
Finally, I have finished off my spread with some gorgeous Chic Tag embellishment layers..
