Week 36 with Turn The Page

Happy 2018 friends!  I hope the year has started well for you and that you had a lovely festive season.

Okay so it's been a while since I've blogged.  Life gets busy and something's got to give right?  

As the new year starts I hope to keep more up to date on here, and you can always see my crafty projects on my Instagram account as well.

This is week 36 in my 6x8 album.  I've used the October Citrus Twist Kits Pocket Life kit, which is brimming with Paige Evan's gorgeous Turn the Page collection.

I had a few photos for the week, and a Snapchat from Kayci which didn't fit the usual 3x4 dimensions, so I added an insert to slip it into.

So, confession time.  I'm not a huge ice cream fan, but oh em gee this Magnum ice cream in a tub is TD4!!  I can't even look at it in the freezer at the grocers or it ends up in my trolley ha! And of course as you can see in this pic, our two Cavaliers are in for any food on offer.

I've based my insert on a tag shape but added an extra piece at the front to slip my photo in to.  I stitched some pom pom fringe to the bottom of the tag and added an ephemera heart to a paperclip to pop in as well.

This is Kayci's Snapchat photo to me.  I took a screenshot so that the photo saved to my phone, then resized it in photoshop to print at 5 inches high.  I knew I wanted to add some journalling on the back so I measured a piece of patterned paper to size, then printed my journalling on the reverse of the patterned paper.

I just added a couple more cut a part pieces from the 6x6 pad to fill in the back of the insert.

At the moment I'm still deciding how to document my 2018.  I know I'll be PLing for sure, but I'm stuck between going with a 6x8 album again or switching it up this year to 9x12.

I'm definitely going to try more hybrid spreads, since I love printed journalling rather than hand written journalling.  

I'd love to hear what you've decided on for your 2018 documenting!

Thanks for stopping by today!
