Today I’m sharing my June pages from my 2018 Project Life album! June was a bit of a quiet month for us, so I didn’t end up making that many spreads. This months photos were a little tricky to pull together cohesively, so I went with a lot of plain journal cards and was fairly minimal with my embellishments and stamping, to tie everything together.
My title page for the month is one of my favourites – I love the simple layout and all those pops of bright blue and pink! The stamps on the bottom journal card are from the Ali Edwards ‘Heart’ story kit and my favourite Life Love Paper ‘icon’ stamp set from Studio Calico, using Color Theory ink in Power Suit and Something Blue.
For my parents’ anniversary this year, we all went out for a super tasty brunch. Dad even emailed us cute invitations that he made with a photo from their wedding, and I knew I had to include it in this page!
My family has all been going to see the same hairdresser since I was a kid, and typically my parents and I all go to get our hair cut at the same time and often will go out to lunch after that – hence ‘family haircut day’. This month, Dannii came along as well! I love the look of phrase stickers on a patterned journal card, but didn’t have any phrase stickers that worked for this story. So I just handwrote the title I wanted onto a bit of white cardstock and cut it up to look like phrase stickers!
Sometimes, it’s best to go right back to the basics of Project Life – photos + words on a journal card. With everything going on in these photos, I figured it would be best not to clutter up the page with too many embellishments, and just focused on getting my stories written down on the cards and, in the case of the bottom row, on the photos themselves. I made the ‘good friends’ embellishment by using an Ali Edwards stamp on some white cardstock and cutting around it – the ‘wonky’ circle meant I didn’t have to be perfect when cutting it out!
This page was all about the impromptu dinner party we had with our best friends, to try out their new takoyaki pan. It was a really fun evening, and I knew I had to dedicate a whole page to it! The Ali Edwards ‘Eat’ story stamp was the perfect accent, as were the food-themed chipboard words from the Studio Calico ‘Venus’ scrapbook add-on kit. After I took the photo of this page, I ended up adding grey number stickers to the drinks photo, to identify our rankings from 7 to 1, left to right.
There wasn’t that much to ‘say’ on this page, so I filled in the pockets with a couple of bold patterned cards, and a sticker from an old Kikki.K sticker book. It was hard to photograph, but it says ‘Enjoy the little things’ in gold foil.
And that’s it for June! I was able to pull these pages together over a couple of evenings – keeping things very simple and not picking out a lot of embellishments definitely helped the process along! Looking forward to the next month of documenting – I’m already planning out what journal cards I want to use for our recent trip to Victoria!
