Life is Good with Guest Designer Sabrina Poole

Hi! This is Sabrina and I’m back again to share a fun, whimsical 6″ x 8″ spread that I created for my birthday. The colorful puffy hearts and quote bubble journaling tag inspired me to put all the colors from the July 2018 Kit together!

For the 4″ x 6″ journaling tag in my spread I decided to make a ‘banner’ using the Hello Happy Puffy Words to anchor the photos to the tag. I changed the photos to black and white so that they wouldn’t take away from the focal photo on the right. I then gave them a slight tilt and added “life is good” to the top. I love how this photo banner adds to the birthday theme! I then added in some stamped asterisks from the Highlight Stamp, Puffy Heart Stickers and the ‘hello there’ die cut from the July Kit to add a pop of orange.

The quote bubble tag was my inspiration, but I didn’t think I could fit all my journaling on it. Then I thought using the Jane Alphabet Stickers would work to put “happy birthday to me 33!’ and that would be a great way to make a title. Instead of “birthday” I went with “BD” so I didn’t have to squeeze the word in. I then put on the finishing touches of two embellishment clusters using Puffy Heart Stickers and more asterisks from the Highlight Stamp.

For the main page, I printed my photo out at 3-1/2″ x 5″ and I decided to use this month’s Everyday Goodness Printables as the tags to layer behind my photo. I used three different tags, tilting them slightly to add dimension and movement. My next step was the most fun! I added in tons of Puffy Heart Stickers, Vellum and Wood Veneer Asterisks, and stamped asterisks and hearts from the Highlight Stamp. I also added in Wood Veneer Phrases, plus two stamped phrases from the Everyday Phrases Stamp that I popped up with foam squares. I also added in the three arrow die cuts from the July Kit. All of these pieces helped me create a fun, striking page to celebrate my birthday!

Hey. My name is Sabrina Poole and I live near Sacramento with my hubby and two children. Life is busy and chaotic in the best of ways. It makes documenting, creating and scrapbooking easy! I have been documenting since I started college (nearly 14 years ago!) and I continue to document even though my format has changed. I’ve always been drawn to how documenting with colorful products leads to life being preserved in a beautiful, memorable way.
Right now I document mostly hybrid and use digital products to make projects come to life. I always have several projects going at once and love my crafty time. I post most of my projects on Instagram and am just now starting my YouTube channel. So excited!
We can’t wait to see what Sabrina will share with us for her final project here on the blog next week! Until then, see what she’s creating on her Instagram account!
