I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer for October at Elle’s Studio! I love to use Elle’s Studio for my 6×12 Project Life albums!
For my first project I decided to do a spread in my 2017 album, I gathered all the Halloween items from the October Kit and got to work! I had tons of photos, so I ended up with two 6×12 pocket pages and a 6×8 insert! The Elle’s Studio October Kit is packed with Halloween goodies so putting together the spread was easy!
I started with my usual process and printed the photos first. When I started doing PL, I quickly had to come up with a process that worked for me so that it wouldn’t become overwhelming. After my photos were printed, I laid out the cards I wanted to use. Next, I did all my journaling in photoshop and popped my cards into my printer. Sometimes I hand write on the cards, but I find printing my journaling quicker, and I end up with less spelling errors, etc.
Once I had all the cards in place, I got to the fun part! Decorating the cards and photos! I started with the Trick or Treat wood veneer in a 3×4 pocket and also attached the Oct 31 wood veneer to my top photo, I love how it fits perfectly in that spot! To create balance, I made sure to distribute the wood veneer banners around the spread.
The last few years as part of my process I limit my color choices to 2 or 3 colors. It helps me to make a spread quickly and gives me a nice cohesive look in my pockets. I used mostly teal, black and pops of orange on these pockets and I love how it turned out!
