Agnus | Project Life - Crate Paper 'Cool Kid' continued

Hi there :) I am back with another project life share using the fun Crate Paper 'Cool Kid' collection from the store.
Even though I normally use a weekly format, I have documented the final two weeks of May one one spread because I was a bit light on photos and didn't want to feel forced to try and make them stretch over two double spreads, but I guess that's the beauty of project life in that you can do it any way that suits you. I tried to keep the format similar to my previous May pages to keep the month looking consistent.


This collection doesn't actually include many journal cards, but that was easily overcome with printed journal strips teamed up with paper layers and chipboard accents to create my own fun journal cards.


The large chipboard pieces were great for adding a focal point to the page, and by adding the tiny text alpha stickers directly over the top I was able to create greater sense of depth on the page.  


  

I used the saying and cute fox from the 12x12" Run & Jump cut-apart sheet to create another simple but effective filler card, and love that it relates to both of the pictures along side it.



I placed some of my other journaling in a chipboard frame and really like how it breaks up some of the busy patterned paper and helps the story to stand out. 



In an effort to make better use of my tools, I have challenged myself to use my fuse tool this month and it was the perfect solution for including some event tickets from a night at the drag-way my boys attended. I filled the pocket with stars and used the fuse to seal in the tickets and stars before attaching the pocket to the page protector. I used one of the star paperclips as an easy way to open the shaker pocket to reveal the photograph beneath and love that it adds a bit of interaction into my album. 

  
The mixed alpha stickers doubled up as a design element and a way of telling the story on my final photo of the month. I often use word or alpha stickers directly over my photos for both the design and story aspects.
