Hi again, I've got another Project Life spread to share using the Hey Girl Daily Diary Kit.
Week 2 was a busy one for us because we had a lot of organising to do for our son's 18th birthday. I am planning to add an insert for the actual event between these pages as I have loads of photos from the day.
The week involved a couple of visits to the cake and party supply shops. I created a simple faux pocket to hold some of the business cards I collected by placing a piece of vellum over a card stock base card then wrapping the printed strips around the vellum and base card, securing it on the reverse side.
I printed my journaling directly onto one of the patterned papers and used the line in the pattern as a guide for my text placement. Adding the overlay over the card allows the pattern to show through to create an easy custom card.
I kept a couple of clothing tags from my son's purchases to help tell the story of the fitting room pics and used one of the die-cut frames to hold the tags in place over some patterned paper I cut down form the kit along with one of the day of the week arrows.
I created a text box in Word to shape my journaling inside the arrow of the card. It took a couple of practice prints to make sure it would fit inside the shape before feeding it back through the printer. I don't have a light box but find that a placing the page and journal card onto a window and securing it with washi tape does the job nicely. I used the date stamp with red ink from the kit to break up some of the text, and backed one of the die-cut circles with card stock and patterned paper before adding it to my card. I love that the enamel heart was the perfect size to replace once of the letters.
See you next week :)
