It feels like ages since I shared a project life spread. I’ve not created any spreads since the start of August as most of what I wanted to document between then and now was either captured in my Week in the Life album or in my holiday album that is still a work in progress, so I didn’t worry too much about a gap in my album.
This spread was partly inspired my Ali’s Story Kit theme this month. The theme is Black & White but it also extends out into opposites and part of the kit were some die cut labels. There were she & he labels and that got me thinking about splitting this spread into two to document my week and my husband’s week. He’d also willing obliged by taking photos when he was at the Rugby World Cup match.
The left hand page is my side. The first card is one I made from Studio Calico digital project life cards. The original ‘9’ card was partially transparent and in photoshop you could see the checkerboard transparency background through the design. I liked the texture it added so to replicate it I placed it over another digital project life card. I cropped it to 3x3 and created a new journaling card and added journaling. Once it was printed I added the #coffeelover with a stamp. The photo next to it was my first PSL of the season. I quite like PSL’s but I prefer unflavoured coffee. So I used the ‘yes, no, maybe’ stamp from Kellie Stamps and then used a check mark stamp and some orange ink to tick the maybe box.
In the bottom left I used a photo I’d taken in Greenwich Park. I used the digital stamp from Kellie Stamps new ‘I Am, We Are, You Are’ set and added journalling underneath. Here I also used the digital versions of the die cut words from Ali’s Story Kit. I recoloured them to orange and black, printed them at the sometime as my journaling cards then trimmed them. The final card on this side is another made with a new set coming from Kellie Stamps called ‘GOSH!’ which was made in Collaboration with Brandi Kincaid and includes some of her fantastic doodles including this donut one!
The right hand side is my husband’s side. I focused on the main story of the week which was him and some friends going to a Rugby World Cup match. I used one of the digital cards from the Black & White Story kit but recoloured the word good from pink to orange. Next to that is a journalling card that I made by using the digital version of the chipboard ‘vs.’ piece in the kit as it seemed fitting for a story about a rugby match. Then finally on the 4x6 photo I added the ‘He’ label to complete his side of the spread.
