Today I’m sharing a spread I created using the digital version of the Believe Story Kit for my Build Album. I decided to use it to document the period at the start of the year when we were waiting (and waiting) for house purchase to go through. I’ve already documented parts of that story in my project life album, but as this is a major story in the story of us getting our house I needed to include the story in my Build Album too. So I opted to do a summary of what happened and the Believe kit was a great fit.
Starting on the left hand page I used a 4x6 quote card from the kit in top pocket. In one of the 3x4 pockets I used another card from the kit and added a chipboard piece from a past Story Kit. For this spread all my photos are in digital templates. I used the Instagram template from Cathy Zielske but removed the text and Instagram Icon and instead added a grey and silver word sticker. In the bottom pocket I used a 3x4 card from the kit but changed the colour and used it on a 4x6 card along with my journaling.
On the right hand page I used a mix of more of the photo templates and filler cards. On the filler cards I used the ‘this I know’ labels that are part of the Believe Story kit. I sized the labels to fit the 3x4 cards in photoshop and then added my text before printing them out. I cut them out by hand and tried to use my corner chomper to round the corners but it chewed up the card so I ended up cutting the diagonally corners instead! For the patterned background cards I used patterned paper for one. The other two I created using Ali’s new Crafter Inks. I loved the painted look of the filler card that I had used on the left page so used two stamps from my stash that have a similar painted look. I didn’t want to stamp on white, as I thought there was already a lot of white on the spread, so I looked through my stash for plain but lightly coloured cards or patterned paper. In the end I found two 4x6 project life cards that I stamped and then cut down to 3x4.
