Well, I finally got my Papertrey Ink order and was able to sit down
and complete my Monthly Moments spread for February.
For the left hand side, I created a collage of photos in Picasa and printed
them out as a 6.5x6.5" square, which I adhered to the back of my January full page spread.
I added some Basic Grey Persimmon patterned paper and some sweet blush cardstock along the bottom, under my journaling and added some pure poppy cardstock that I diecut
using the largest heart from Reverse Confetti's Love Note dies.
For the right hand side, I used a page protector that has two 3x4 pockets at the top and a 4x6 pocket
at the bottom. These are separated by a 1.25x6" pocket in the middle.
At the top, I created my own journaling tag in Word and printed it out on vintage cream cardstock.
I added a thin strip of red cardstock to it.
I diecut the journaling card and my photo using my new PTI Journaling Card 1 die.
I'm almost embarrassed to let you read all of my injuries from February... It was a rough month!
For my month, I used my new Papertrey Ink February die that I cut from pure poppy cardstock.
I layered it over some Basic Grey persimmon patterned paper-- we hardly saw any birds this
month, but I had to include these sweet little guys on my layout!
For my bottom pocket, I diecut part of the Basic Grey patterned paper with the Journaling Card 1 die and trimmed out the rest with my paper trimmer.
To this, I adhered my photo (also trimmed out partially with my Journaling Card 1 die)
and some journaling I'd printed out on the computer.
I'm really liking this Monthly Moments album and find that, so far, it's enjoyable, doable
and not stressful. :)
Thanks for looking!
