Kerri Bradford's blog this week! When she asked if I'd be interested in playing with some of her designs, I said YES and knew that tackling our short Chicago trip in August would be perfect with her travel themed product. I want to share my Project Life Summer Handbook pages today, but you can also read Kerri's post here.
Beautiful Somewhere and Tiny Details cards as a starting point for my spreads. Being in downtown Chicago, there was a lot of gray in my photos so the colors were a fun complement. The 6x8 script artwork on the right side above is from Matthew Taylor Wilson and was a gift included in a Studio Calico scrapbook kit a few months ago.
this set, and layered it over a Studio Calico grid card + a patterned card from the Beautiful Somewhere set and stitched along the diagonal.
Kerri's Here We Go freebie to 6x8 and then used the Silhouette to cut it out of vellum. Then I stitched it in place along the horizontal lines between the words. I love how it turned out!
Tiny Details : Calendar card and Monday cut from this set. I enlarged the calendar card to about 2" wide, then trimmed off the bottom half so I could just use the large number for the date. Add the day of the week, stitch it on, and I still had a little room below to add a short list of the places we visited that day.
this page protector to create an insert. Above, the 'enjoy summer' card is from this set from Ali Edwards. The 'his' and 'hers' stamps are from Elise Blaha Cripe and are no longer available. I used the Color Theory Mint Hint ink for those.
Sunny Day ink to stamp on and highlight the A for August on the calendar card.
Tiny Details card, folded it in half and stitched it to the side of the insert as a tab.
Thank you so much for having me Kerri! You can see all of my Summer Handbook blog updates here.
