Summer Snapshot - Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine

TGIF Sassy friends!

Some of you might recognise this title cut from a layout I did earlier in the month... I sneakily positioned it so I could use the gorgeous woodgrain print for my Shades of Summer layout plus use the reserved piece for another project!
 The original lined print has been removed and replaced with a misty creation! 
I really enjoyed using the chipboard sticker negative as a stencil, so I have 
repeated the shapes twice onto a sheet of white 12x12 cardstock.
I've used Color Shine in Mustard as well as a touch of Citron.
 Lots of layering with some fun ephemera and slide frames
This gorgeous collection is available in the store now.

If you are looking for a challenge this weekend, why don't you give 
our August Moodboard a go! You could win a store voucher - and with lots of gorgeous new arrivals in stock now (like Crate's new Notes & Things) 
it's the perfect way to treat yourself!

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

Pink Paislee - Solstice collection

Hello Sassy Scrappers, Leonie here today with a page using the lovely Solstice collection 
from Pink Paislee.
All available HERE in the Sassy Scrapper Store.

I have made use of the many nautical elements in this range and scrapped a 
picture of my niece and I the
day she entered the Australian Navy Recruit School.  

The anchors in the gold foil foam sticker pack were perfect for the theme I was after.
Great for boy or beach pages too.

Below are the glitter alphas in the Solstice collection and some teeny very
cute printed labels that come in the puffy sticker pack.

 I hope you've enjoyed your stop by the Sassy Scrapper blog, 
below are links to the products used on my page. 
Happy scrapping!
Leonie Neal-Dawson.

Project Life | Week 30...

Hi There Project Life friends!  It's Leanne here today with Week 30 | July 21 - 27. 
 Today I wanted to share my thought processes concerning horizontal linear shapes and lines when creating my PL spreads.  Again, it's a simple and common thing to do, but this week seems like a good example to share with you all. Especially with the added touches of strip journaling! 
Linear lines were necessary this week, to bind the entire spread together.  I had many photos to include and lots of titbits of journaling as well.  My solution was to link the story directly to the photo with strips of typed text.

My page one started off simple enough.  Photo collages and 4"x4" photos printed onto 4"x6" photo sheets were slipped into the top and bottom pockets. I also used four 3"x4" photos in the middle row, but because of the white space (literally) on the 4"x6" photos, I wanted the filler cards to be relatively simple (and clean) too.

The embellishments then sort of took on a life of their own.  Once the journaling was added to the cards, I wanted to make a clear connection between them visually.  This is where my linear lines started to evolve.  In the photo above, you can see the three strips of embellishment text/phrase stickers.  They help draw your eye across my pages and reminds the viewer that there are stories here among the multitudes of photos! *grin*

My title page also sports a few linear lines with the embellishment stickers lined up in bold strips to announce which week I am documenting. The colourful banner may not be entirely linear, but every now and then, I like to add a few surprises on my pages where the eye needs to stop and process what the difference is, before moving on.

On page two, the journaling strips are out in full force.  There are no blocks of journaling used here, as repetition from the opposite page.  These strip notes and embellishments however, continue to carry my idea over from the first page. Including the striped filler card shown above.

This week I also had the pleasure of entering my boys' classrooms for parent/teacher interviews.  I wanted the images included in my Project Life to be similar.  Not only because of the correlation between the two photos and the event, but I also wanted to include snippets of information relating to the boys and their classes, below the square cropped photos.


I've used another Simple Stories photo flip pocket to include the school photos around the filler card, trimmed from the Teresa Collins patterned paper, for the "ABC" print.
The remainder of my spread shares informal and daily details from our week.  There are still hints of layers and linear lines found here as well.

 The best part of creating linear elements on your spread, are the visual connections between story and photo/ephemera.  If you have a lot of photos, this simple method can help prevent the lack of documentation becoming a problem.  Even if the strip journaling is only in point form, it still helps record part of your story.
