Project Life – July 2019

Today I’m sharing my Project Life pages for July! July was a bit of a low-key month in terms of events to document, and my approach to putting these spreads together was pretty low-key as well. I didn’t end up adding a lot of embellishments to my pages, but that’s what I love about pocket scrapbooking – you can make it as simple or as complicated as you want!

The calendar journal cards came in an old Studio Calico documenter kit, and they were the perfect way to jot down an overview of the month, especially in combination with my ‘Here & Now’ card!

I used the triangles on this washi tape as arrows to point towards the photo each journal card was describing – a nice, simple way to show which story when with each photo.

This page was all about a day that we spent with both of our families, and since there were a lot of people and colours in the photos, I went very minimal with the journal cards. The only thing I added was a date stamp, using black Staz-On ink – the best ink for stamping on slippery gold foil!

I had similar issues with this page, where the top photos were very different in colour from the bottom photos… I decided to pick out a colour that was in both sets of photos, blue, to use for the centre card, and kept the other journal cards mostly white to prevent the page from looking too busy.

This page was all about one of our team members finishing up with us – she wrote us a lovely card, and I took the envelope to incorporate into my spreads. I actually used the envelope for both sides of this pocket, too, as you’ll see in the photos below!

I had a few health issues in July, and while I wanted to tell that story, I also wanted to keep it hidden as it was a bit more personal. I wrote my journalling down on a 3×4 card, and placed it in the envelope from the previous page. Since the envelope didn’t quite fill up the 4×6 pocket, I was a bit worried about it slipping out – so my solution was to attach the top of the envelope (under the flap) to the pocket using a couple of pieces of double-sided tape, with the flap on the outside of the pocket, secured down with a bit of gold washi tape. This way, the envelope won’t slide out, but I can still open it up really easily to read the hidden journalling inside!

And that’s it for July! I hope you enjoyed this look into my 2019 Project Life album – stay tuned next month for the August spreads!
