Hello friends!!! Happy September! September?! That's just crazy. But I am pretty darn excited for a change in weather. I am over winter! (Although this past week has been colder and rained more, ha).
Happy to be here sharing some of my projects using the September kits though, and I thought this time around I'd start with my PL kits using the Pocket Life kit which is THE BEST EVER. Seriously! This kit is in my all-time Top 3, I loveeee it so.
Now let me just preface this by saying my layouts are super simple and I really do not do this kit enough justice - still trying to figure out what I'm doing - but the kit is so amazing!
Anywhoooo, enough blabbing - onto the photo's! This is the first week which is actually first week or so of August (not that I do PL weekly, my pages are kinda random):
More snapchat photo's.... I would like to say I'll stop using them but that'd be a lie. I love snapchat and it's a fun way to get my silly mug in there, otherwise it would probably end up mostly being Zack, Zack, Makayla, and more Zack, lol).
Left side has a big photo of our family at one of the football games (had a family day) - I was there taking photo's of each kids family members and we managed to get someone to snap a few of us too. They all turned out a little out of focus (didn't know how to use my camera, ha) so I flipped it to B&W and it's not so bad. The wood button is stuck to the outside of my pocket so I don't have to worry about it making the plastic look funny ;)
Right side is combo of photo's and journaling/filler cards. I LOVE that green card with the flowers. it's just so, so pretty. I'm mixing how I print the journaling - sometimes directly onto the 3x4 card and other times onto paper and then adhering it to the card (tape/stitching/staples/etc). I prefer printing onto the cards but sometimes I'm lazy and cant be bothered getting it lined up haha.
My next week is pretty similar in that I went with another big photo (football again....I know, repetitive...but then again, that's exactly how I am haha).
Left side is big photo and big 6x4 card chopped in half. Alot of people don't like doing that but it doesn't bother me - the alignment issues of a photo or card because of the plastic gap does bug me though so you better believe I make sure I chop off that little bit in the middle so it lines up haha. The wood button is on the outside of my plastic pocket again. In the old days I'd have stuck it on the photo and dealt with a wonky plastic pocket...but just can't do it anymore. The pockets need to stay flat! Well flat'ish ;)
Right side has the kids on the Crazy Hair Day. I printed straight onto the 3x4 card and as you can see, the bottom went out of alignment, ahhhh! I can't even tell you why - lined up perfectly in Photoshop so not sure if it slipped in the printer feed or what, but I am totally going to just deal with it. It kinda bugs me...and yeah, I could fix it but it clearly doesn't bug me that much, lol.
I am so happy to be working on PL again, I really enjoy the process of putting these together and I'm actually kinda keeping up to date which is awesome! But the fact that the kit this month is the bomb is a huge help; made it SO easy.
And that is it for now - I'll be back bit later to share my layouts ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Take care, Em xo
