Rock Climbing: Enjoy the Journey Daily Diary Kit

Hi!  Sarah here with my last layout using the May Enjoy the Journey daily diary kit.  This one plays off the layout I made last week about the Science Spectrum Museum.  This is a fun little rock wall inside the museum.  The girls saw it and jumped right on it.


I used the cool yellow ombre paper from the kit for my background and backed it with a brown cardstock.  The 6x6 butterfly paper was perfect because one of my daughter's shirts has butterflies all over it.  I cut a card from one of the cut apart sheets for an added embellishment.  


I really like how the arrows on the card point to the picture in different ways.  I added a yellow heart die cut to the card over the camera lens.


I cut out a banner from one of the 6x6 papers and popped it up for the corner of the photo.  I really like that added detail.  


I used some cork Thickers from my stash for my title.  The circle embellishment looks like it has mountains on it, which fits perfectly by the title and fits perfect with my theme.  

Thanks so much for joining us today!  We'd love to see what you're creating with your May kits!

Vacay - Enjoy the Journey Daily Diary kit!

Hi everyone! Julie here with you today sharing what I created with the "Enjoy the Journey" Daily Diary kit! 

I had some random photos leftover from our family trip to California and Las Vegas a few years ago, so I used this kit to create a mini-album from that trip! Over the next few Thursdays, I will be sharing different pages from this album! :)

travel pocket pages

Last week I shared a couple layouts from my vacation album and this week I'm sharing a few pocket pages that are supplementing those layouts. Traditional layouts were created using the Enjoy the Journey Classic kit and the pocket pages were created using the Enjoy the Journey Daily Diary Kit.

So here is one of the layouts I shared last week:
And here is a pocket page to go along with that layout (all pages are 9x12): 


And here is how they will look together in my album. 


Here is another layout I shared last week:


And a few pocket pages to go along with that page. A Christmas Story House was a definite favorite so we I took lots of photos ;) 


If you love the movie you must go see the house & museum!!

As I finish up my vacation album I might move things around a bit, add some more pocket pages, etc. But this is how they will look together so far:
I've found that I like to create one layout (almost like a title page) and then add pocket pages for all of my extra photos rather than creating a traditional 2 page layout. Having a variety of different pages adds visual interest to my albums!

Enjoy The Journey - ADVENTURE

Happy Canadian long weekend everyone!!! 
DANIELLE here with a new mixed media layout using the 


I had so much fun creating this layout. I started with the Kraft cardstock, and added some white gesso to the background. Once that dried, I splattered some Distress Spray in Blueprint Sketch.


Next I chose a handful of different pattern papers, and several circle punches, and started creating a layered circle pattern on my background. Once I had the circles glued into place, I stitched through some of them with some turquoise thread.


Next up I grabbed my Jane Davenport Coloured Pencils and coloured around every circle to add another pop of colour. I added some of the cork circle pieces, but lightened them up a bit with a White Gelato from my stash.


I used the Crate Paper Here and There roller stamp and a handful of different coloured inks and stamped phrases all over the background. 


To complete this layout I trimmed my page, and used my "Notebook" punch on the edges, then layered it on some yellow cardstock and stitched a messy border. 


I hope this inspired you to dig into your paper punches and create something new!

Science Spectrum: Enjoy the Journey Daily Diary Kit

Hi!  Sarah here with another layout using the May daily diary kit.  For this one, I layered up some papers from the April kit that I hadn't used.  I really like all the colors together and they paired nicely with the die cuts from the kit.


With the two photos I had of the museum, I also had one of our tickets that I placed on it's side next to the pictures.  I like how the blue on the ticket plays off the colors.  


I really liked the oversized arrows from Pretty Little Studio and used two of them to point towards the photos.  The "Stop Here" sign was also a nice touch and helped me to build that embellishment cluster.



I used some Hip Kit Club alphabet puffy stickers for the title.  I like how the navy pops against the pink paper.  I used the Pebbles tiny alphabet stickers from the kit to indicate the city where the museum is.


I did my journaling on a piece of white cardstock and popped it up on some foam squares.  I finished it off with some navy enamel dots from Teresa Collins from my stash.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I'd love to see what you're making with your May kits!

Vacation pages // Enjoy The Journey Classic Kit

Hey all! I'm back with some more vacation layouts from our family trip to Michigan last year. While we were there I wanted to give my kids (mostly my son who looooves baseball!) an opportunity to see an MLB game. So we headed to Comerica Park to see the Tigers play the Twins.
I love the little alpha stickers in the kit which are great for creating large titles. I grabbed those woodgrain thickers from a previous kit (I believe the December kit).
During our trip we also headed to Ohio to see A Christmas Story House (totally worth it by the way!!!). It was so much fun seeing the house from one of my all time favorite movies! They also had a museum and a pretty amazing gift shop. If you're anywhere near Cleveland, OH I highly suggest going to check it out!
As I mentioned last week, I'm using a 9x12 album for this trip which gives me a little bit more room than an 8 1/2x11 size. Both layouts were created using the Enjoy The Journey Classic Kit. Next week I'll share how I incorporate pocket pages using the Enjoy the Journey Daily Diary Kit in with my traditional pages.
