Sharing my September Project Life pages today! I didn’t have a ton of stories to tell from this month, so I only did a few spreads, but that’s what I like about my month-by-month approach – I can just use as much space as I need to. Some seasons of life are busier or fuller than others, and that’s totally okay!
One of the big stories of the month was that my niece, Maddy, spent a couple of days with my parents and they took her to Movie World and Sea World. They sent a bunch of photos to our family WhatsApp group, so I used a few of those for my September title page – they’re just so bright and colourful, and I always love having Maddy on my monthly title pages!
I just happened to have a couple of strawberry-printed journal cards, which were perfect for one of the stories on this page! I love it when you can find the exact right print on a journal card.
This month I had a lot of black and white photos, so I used a lot of patterned filler cards, which made the perfect colourful backgrounds to my journalling. I just cut down a few plain white or grid cards to make journalling spots. On this page, I outlined the journalling spots with a black felt-tip pen to make them stand out a little better.
The top 4×6 card is actually a little postcard that came with the flower crown kits I ordered from Oh Dina on Etsy. My friends and I loved making these flower crowns – definitely recommend Oh Dina’s kits for your next crafty party, or even a bridal shower!
The washi tape on this page was originally used to wrap up an online order I received from Alice Nightingale – it was the perfect colour, so I repurposed it to attach my journalling spots to my patterned cards. I love it when I can reuse or recycle things from around my house in my projects.
For the last page of the month, I went pretty simple and just added a couple of puffy stickers and did a repeated stamp title on one of the journal cards. Centred dimensional elements on patterned journal cards are probably my go-to design for most of my pocket page documenting. I love that the practice of putting together my albums each year has helped me find my ‘style’ or my ‘rhythm’ when it comes to scrapbooking!
And that’s it for September! Hope you enjoyed that look at last month’s pages – stay tuned for the next month!
