This was the first layout i created with the 2016 materials. It's about not feeling like a grown up and debating whether i ever will.
i used the I AM collection from Simple Stories, which i absolutely adore. The colours are so pretty & i am all about the gold foil! Simple Stories is fast becoming one of my favourite manufacturers.
For my second layout, to keep things simple i used the same sketch as inspiration and the same set of products. But the layout turned out looking pretty different!
i'm in a phase of life right now where there are lot's of exciting things happening and i'm not sure where they are going to take me. i'm not much of a forward planner in my personal life (although planning is actually what i do for a living!), so i think i'll always be figuring things out as i go along. The journaling talks about how i'm taking small steps that will benefit my future, whilst trying to still live in the present.
i had lot's of fun with stamping on this page. i used an alphabet stamp from Kelly Purkey & Hero Arts. It comes with some fun graphic stamps which can be used over or under the letters to add some colour and interest. i also used some word and border stamps along the bottom to finish off the layout.
i used a Photo Flip from Simple Stories on this layout, to house the photo and create additional space for journaling. It was more a design choice than wanting to keep the journaling hidden. i love products which are versatile enough to be used on both pocket pages and layouts. To make the journaling accessible when it's in an album, i cut the page protector on the top side around where the photo flip is so that i can easily lift it.
