Using the kit this week, I have been more creative with the PL cards. I've used them as backing mats (nothing new there) but I've also sliced and diced some of the cards so they are barely recognisable! *grin*
Layering the embellishments and adding stitching to the sentiments, helps bring focus to what I wanted to encapsulate with my thoughts. The Sassy Scrapper July PL add-on kit has a wonderful selection of phrase stickers. A simple and effective idea if you are embellishing a filler card.
The photo above shows one of those PL cards trimmed right down, leaving the title only!
Page Two has more of the "everyday" non-spectacular stuff, but I've tried to balance it in colours and patterned when it sits next to Page One.
This long (and extra pink) alpha sticker quote was created on this filler card to help balance the pink block in the weekly title pocket.
And the stitching and layering of embellishments above, mimic the first lot of layered embellishments I shared earlier. The lime green strip of colour (another PL card trimmed down) helps to create a visual triangle on both pages, linking to the "date sticker strip" in the first pocket on page one and the strip of green grass as seen in the photo of all of my children on the slide - first pocket, second page
