the every day routine

When I was pulling my papers for my Autumn Fun Counterfeit Kit I had put the Crate Paper Seaweed Collection "Deep Blue" and the Prudence Collection "Virtue";  papers together as I thought I would make a layout using both of the papers.  Well that actually didn't happen and I split them up when I realized I had enough embellishments in my tray to cover a couple of pages using the papers separately. I had the printable journal card, a couple of pieces of the heart paper, stamped images and some die cuts.

I used one of the PageMaps sketches for my 12x12 layout - I made the pattern paper smalled and the photo changed to  4x6 and

the challenge at Sketches in Thyme.  Project Life Style for week 3 which I rotated 90 degrees.

For the 12x12 page I used the Printable Project Life card and the heart paper along with some scrap paper.  I again outlined the white cardstock with a black sharpie and inked the edges of my papers.

The pocket page side is where I used the majority of my embellishments from my tray.  For week 3 I rotated the sketch to fit my 4x6 pocket. I stamped the "Live for the moment" and "enjoy the little things" for my titles. Instead of having the pattern paper across the top I stamped the months. Now I could not find a large ampersand in the letter stickers so I dug out my foam stamps and Lime ink.

For the rest of the pockets the stamped flower spray was already cut out along with the peacock feather square I just added the embroidery floss to it. I did die cut the doily but it didn't want to separate all the way so I just used half of it with a heat embossed bird. I trimmed down the rock n roll paper into a banner and wrapped a little bit of embroidery yarn around it. The take note was already stamped and punched I just added to the die cut.

On the 8 1/2 x 11 layout I kept the photo at 4x6 and moved the banned to a vertical position and the project life card is at the bottom of the layout.

I was finally able to get a clean cut on the doily die and added a button to the center with a bow in the top right corner.  The heart paper makes a border on the 2x4 with a "today" heart cut out, a stamped bird a few more banners and a die portions of a die cut, then some crewel yarn wrapped around a die cut tag that I cut down to fit into the bottom 2x4 pocket finish the page off.

Thanks for stopping by.

Ooh, I love the idea of creating foundation pages/layouts and then adding photographs later. I do this with mini-albums but had never thought about doing it with other styles of scrapping!
