Today I’m sharing my May Project life pages! May was a pretty big month as restrictions in Queensland began to ease and we were able to see our friends and family in person a little more, so I was able to document a few more get-togethers and social things than the last couple of months!
I went with lots of soft pinks, cork and hearts for this month’s title page – absolutely love having my nephew and nieces’ smiling faces all lined up like that!
This spread was mostly about some of the socialising we did with friends during the month – and as you can see from the photos, I often forget to take pictures of the people but I do remember to take photos of the food!
I like making journal cards by layering plain or grid cardstock over patterned or coloured filler cards – for these ones, I also outlined the journal space with a metallic gold Sharpie and added a bit of stamping for interest.
Washi tape is my other favourite way to turn plain cardstock into pretty journal cards! I have a lot of patterned and plain tapes and sometimes I forget to use them – I’m glad I went through the stash to make these cards this time!
These pages are about the time we spent with my brother’s family during the month. I’m really happy with how cohesive this spread looks as a whole – all those greys, pinks and greens, with the circle embellishments to tie everything together! Very pleased to have put my circle punch to good use for these pages.
This spread is a bit of a mishmash of things that happened through the month!
I made a fair few new garments in May, and also watched a few new-to-me movies, so this page is about all those new things! The journal cards are from an old Becky Higgins mini-kit and they were just perfect for documenting my makes and my thoughts on these movies.
Documented some meals and family get-togethers in this page – I love that little speech bubble tag (it’s a sticky note that came in an old Studio Calico documenter kit!). The bottom left journal card was printed with the title ‘Count on me’ which didn’t really fit with the stories I was telling on this page, so I covered it over with a label sticker and stamped in a sentiment that made more sense with the page.
I watched a lot of livestreams in May and took some screenshots, so this spread is all about those! I made the filler cards out of patterned paper from my stash and strips of plain white cardstock.
This page is all about my friend Christy’s wonderful 30th birthday celebration – so many of my friends have been unable to celebrate their 30th birthdays this year the way they wanted to, but Christy’s original plan was actually able to work out, and it was such a special evening! The photos turned out lovely so I didn’t add too much – just a bit of gold foil washi tape, a label sticker and a bit of stamping, and a lovely gold foil journal card that I’d been saving for something special.
This page was about my semi-regular walks with Dannii – it’s a nice little habit that we’ve picked up since I started working from home, and I love the extra bit of quality time we get to spend together outdoors!
And that’s it for my May Project Life pages! I did also put together some spreads for my Week in the Life, which happened to be my birthday week, but I’ve decided to share those separately in a few weeks, so stay tuned for that!
