Coordinating Embellishments with Guest Amy Gretchen

The coordinating labels and embellishments that come along with our kit are so fun to use along with our exclusive kit contents each month, and today, guest designer Amy Gretchen is sharing her final project with us that was inspired by combining two of these matching elements together! Let’s see what she created:
It’s Amy Gretchen here again with one last pocket page spread. I am quite behind on my 2014 album and wanted to work on another spread from that year.

Supplies | June 2018 Kit, June Labels, Bright Hand Drawn Acrylic Hearts, Shine 6″ x 6″ Paper StackChloe Alphabet Stamp, Mini Dated Stamp
For this project I was drawn to the “photo notes” June Labels. A lot like the first project l did, I like that there was a Bright Hand Drawn Acrylic Heart for each color and wanted to pair them together. I cut the labels out and placed them at the bottom center of each photo. At first, I had them on all seven photos, but it felt like too much, so I removed three. I loved being able to get a bit more of the story told by adding these labels.

For the title card I used one of the label die cuts from the June 2018 Kit. I told you I loved labels, and stamped the date in black using the Mini Dated Stamp . To help make it look like the label wasn’t floating I added the “so far, so good” die cut on top and used a mini staple to hold it in place.

I love making lists, so I used the 3″ x 4″ list card from the June Kit and stamped numbers from the Mini Dated Stamp on each of the yellow circles, highlighting each item. For the “so very happy” tag, I stamped the word “yes” using the Chloe Alphabet Stamp in black. I loved including some large type to this spread.

The last thing I did was create a frame out of the multicolored, diagonal striped pattern in the Shine 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, using the Summer Wood Veneer Frames as my guide. I cut the patterned paper to 3″ x 4″ and then used the wood veener to trace the square opening, cutting it out using an x-acto. I then added the “can’t get enough of this” phrase die cut and placed the photo behind.
Thank you for joining me this month. I hope you were able to get some inspiration from my projects, and that you’ll enjoy using the June Kit and add-ons as much as I did. I hope your summer is off to a great start!

Hello. I’m Amy Gretchen and I live in Salt Lake City with my husband and three teenage daughters who keep life interesting. I have been filling up my book shelves with traditional scrapbooks for the past 15+ years and since then my passion has evolved to include everyday photography. I love how photos + words help me to see life more fully and have gratitude for the details. Documenting life on a weekly basis through pocket pages fits perfectly with my goal to capture the everyday moments and keep it simple.
I enjoy teaching what I love and currently share weekly process videos and tips on my YouTube channel to help inspire others to get their stories told. When I’m not documenting life I love to travel, eat chocolate, do jigsaw puzzles, listen to podcasts and learn something new. You can find more of my work on my YouTube feed, at my blog, and on Instagram!
We have loved all of the projects that Amy has shared with us this month! In case you missed them, she shared a 6″ x 12″ layout on her first week, and another fantastic pocket page spread on her second week with us. Be sure to follow Amy at the links above for more of her paper crafting inspiration! Thank you so much for designing for us, Amy!
