Japan 2017 album, part 1

Today I’m sharing part 1 of my scrapbook of our Japan trip, featuring Tokyo, Hakone, Miyajima, Hiroshima and Osaka! I filled a whole 9×12 album with pictures and ephemera from our trip (I used the now-discontinued ‘Messy Book’ from A Beautiful Mess), and I’m pleased that I managed to finish this before the end of the year!

Right in the front of the album, I punched holes into an old Story Kit envelope to hold my travel journal, which I wrote in during the trip. I’d never kept a travel journal before, and I really enjoyed it – it was great to record things as they happened, and it meant that I could focus more on the pictures and design in the album instead of trying to work out how to fit in lots of journalling.

I used cards and embellishments from all over my stash to complete this album – Becky Higgins kits, Ali Edwards story kits, Studio Calico kits and stamps, A Beautiful Mess ‘Messy Box’ kits (now discontinued, sadly), and various stickers, washi tape and embellishments that I’ve picked up through the years (including some I purchased in Japan!). I also punched holes into A4 and A5 sized envelopes that I bought from Daiso, to hold brochures, larger tickets, and bits and pieces of ephemera that didn’t quite fit in the pocket pages.

Project Life 2017 – September pages

all the little happy things - Project Life 2017 - September

Sharing my September Project Life pages today, so now I’m all caught up! I don’t have a lot of pages for September, as half of the month was taken up with our Japan trip, and I’m making a whole separate album for that trip, but I did still have enough photos to make a few pages in my main Project Life album. Love the warm pastel colours on my title page!

Project Life 2017 – July pages

all the little happy things - Project Life 2017 - July

Sharing my July Project Life pages today! Just like my June pages, the colours in my title page for July came together really well. The coloured journal card and its embellishments are from past Studio Calico kits, and I made the centre journal card out of plain white cardstock, washi tape from a past Studio Calico kit, and my favourite Studio Calico stamp set.

Project Life 2017 – June pages

all the little happy things - Project Life 2017 - June

Sharing my June Project Life pages today! I didn’t take a lot of photos in June, but I still had a lot of fun putting my pages together. My title page features my thoughts on Wonder Woman and a fun night out with some friends, and I’m really happy with the way all the colours worked together on this page. The coloured journal cards and the embellishments are all from past Studio Calico kits.
