Hi scrappy friends! Can you believe I'm back to share another page?!
This time I thought I'd go with a few PL spreads using the Pocket Life kit. Lots of amazing exclusive goodies in the Pocket Life kit this month (which is always a good thing!).
My PL spreads are super simple I know but it's how I get it done - if I complicate things I'll just give up and I don't want to. I really enjoyed looking back at my original PL spreads (2011/2012) so I'm determined to make this work! I'm not following any format in terms of how often I create a spread but I think I'll probably keep it a couple pages per month.
My first week has a combination of the 2x2 pockets on the left side and 3x4/4x6 pockets on the
right side. I tried to stick with a green/grey/red colour scheme (although that blue die-cut had to go there, I mean I did a page about magic and it says "TA-DA!" - how perfect was that?! Haha).
I did add a few alpha's from my stash to this spread, the red and pink on the bottom right pocket (so they matched the stripes on the card!).
My next page has more football (we do this every weekend at the moment so I have to include it!) and a little card that Zack made my mum & dad for Grandparents Day at school. Zack also lost another tooth this week so I included the "Tooth Fairy Receipt" that she leaves behind each time. I've kept every one of those cards and they're a cute little way to keep track of each tooth. I truly adore that he still believes :)
I used the August 2017 This Is Life "Entertainment" Stamp on one of my cards (RHS top) to tell the story about our "movie night" (which is basically just Zack having an excuse to camp out in the lounge room haha).
I am a sucker for cork pieces and the kit has pieces iwth some cute sentiments this month. This one fit the photo perfectly!
And with that my PL is sort of up-to-date! I'm really enjoying putting these layouts together and although we're not doing anything remarkable each week, I am glad these little everyday stories are being recorded. Looking back in 5-10 years will be so awesome.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Take care, Em xo
