Guest Post | Michelle Stokes of Getting her Craft on…
Today I welcome Michelle Stokes to my blog. Michelle is a creative machine and today she shares with us week 27 of her Project Life journey.
Hello everyone. Michelle here to share one of my recent Project Life layouts using the June Mini Kit.
I had so much fun playing with this Kit! SO much fun that I managed to use everything in the cute polka dot bag that I needed to grab more things from previous mini kits to finish the layout off!!
I started this layout at the start of the month during an all day crop.
Originally I was going to go the no kit route, and I was showing people a few examples of how to make your own journalling cards with stamps and washi tape.
Then the Polka Dot Creative mini kit fell out of my bag and the layout changed completely.
This is how my Week 27 eventually turned out and I LOVE it!
I had a few photos to use on the left hand side, and ended up needing to dip in to a previous mini kit to back them with after printing them out the wrong size (whoops). The papers I found matched in well with the others, especially that vellum!
The photos of myself I have stamped, written and stuck letters and label stickers straight onto the photo.
For the title card, I cut around the Hello bubble (from the speech bubble paper) with my craft knife then slipped one of the star tags underneath. I added some of the cork stars and a flair from A Piece of Cake Designs for some added fun! The pink circles were stamped on using the lid of a misting bottle. I used the same technique on another paper at the bottom of the page, and on the Cloud Washi tape on another pocket.
You can see here I’ve even used Jodie’s business card as part of this pocket. Plus more stars and how cool are those alphas!! Love them!
On this side of the layout I’ve used the 2 cards that I had made at the crop day as examples of how you can make your own cards, They worked in well with the PDC mini kit. Ive also used the pre made journal card from the kit and that Confetti Pocket along the middle 3×4 pockets… I LOVE me some confetti!! And that GOLD triangle paper!!
And how cute are these little speech bubbles!! I cut this banner from another piece of the misted Kraft (part of the kit) added some vellum and stamps from Give a Girl a Stamp, then stapled it onto the pink patterned paper with my photos.
Well thats my week 27 – I hope its given you all some inspiration on how to use one of Jodie’s funky mini kits! I know I cant wait for the next one!!
