Title Page For Volume 1 of 2015, I wanted to create a title page using fun bright colors. I wanted a family photo, but J refuses to get his picture taken. So instead I just put our names. I added the "Home" stamp (and colored it in) and star brad (at our approximate location) to the map card. "You are my whole heart" is an overlay that I placed on top of the fun chevron card. I added a bit of journaling to the "hello" card and some sequins all over the page. Lastly I added the silver glitter numbers as my focal point. I love the brightness of my title card.
January - 1st half
This year I am doing my spreads monthly instead of weekly. This has freed me so much. i don't have to stress about getting the right amount or orientation of pictures for each week. And I can group like photos (e.g. preschool photos throughout the month) if I want to. I have also decided to take my color cues from the Echo Park Through the Year month cards. January's color scheme is blue and gray. I sorted through some of my giant stash of PL cards for gray and blue. And I sorted through my embellishment stash for similarly hued pieces.
Page 1 features Fort Wayne pictures with a bit of journaling about how we started the month in Indiana. I added an overlay to one of the pictures, some alphas, and a few stickers. The weather photo was taken using Instaweather app. Lots of fun!
Page two is the other Fort Wayne pictures. As it was so cold I got to add the little snowman and snowflake stickers. Unfortunately they don't work for the rest of January in California. I added a few random word stickers and a graphic card to complete the page.
Page three heralded our return to California. Some more word stickers and a cute cloud for my fog picture add to the page. I'm trying to add more story journaling instead of just listing where we went. This card highlights our return home and the three playgrounds we explored this month.
Page four rounds out the first half of my January pages. All I added to this page was the mustache sticker (just thought it was too cute!) and a small word sticker on the top left photo. I also journaled about us hosting preschool the first week back. Fun fun!
