Today I’m sharing my Project Life pages for August – lots of family moments to document from this month! I had fun with stamping, stickers and washi tape when putting these pages together – the easiest ways to add a little pizzazz to journal and filler cards!
I love featuring my niece and nephew on my title pages every month! It’s a fun way of capturing how they’re growing throughout the year.
We went to see Snow Patrol live in August – definitely an event that deserved its own spread! I included a list of the songs they played during the night using a couple of cards from a core kit that I’ve had in my stash for a while. I like adding details in list format when I’m documenting a particular event – it’s an easy way of adding some words to a page without having to spend a lot of time thinking about what to write!
This spread is about time we spent with my family – a few dinners/parties, and lots of time walking my nephew-dog!
I added in some small details using stickers and a ‘family’ stamp – there was a lot going on in the photos, with a mix of black and white and colour photos, so I figured it would be best not to over-embellish!
Symmetry makes me happy, so rather than insert 5 different journal cards, I cut down a couple of 4×6 cards. I like the way the eye is drawn in from the corners to that centre heart (it says “love this” – hard to see in this pic!).
This was probably my favourite spread to make from this month! These two pages document a mini-staycation that I had during August to celebrate Dannii’s birthday. I played around with stamping, using some of my favourite sets from Studio Calico – I love how the circles and icons tie both pages together!
I did a fair bit of shopping last month, but I loved my new purchases so much I wanted to document them as well! I love how all the colours work together in this page – I can’t believe I found two different rolls of washi tape in my stash that matched the palette so perfectly!
I don’t think I’ve done a red and blue page in my Project Life album before, and I have no idea why – the colour combo is so bold and fun! I don’t have a lot of darker blue journal/filler cards left in my stash at the moment – I think I will need to stock up in the future!
And that’s it for August! I hope you enjoyed this look into my 2019 Project Life album – stay tuned next month for the September spreads!
