Hello Lake Life with Marsha Farris

Hey, Elle’s Studio friends!  It’s Marsha here with you today, and I’m sharing a pocket page spread in my 6″ x 8″ album. The amazing August 2020 Kit and add-ons were perfect for this layout documenting some of my favorite family lake photos!

When I began this spread, I knew I wanted to highlight the So Cool Puffy Stickers and journaling tags from the August 2020 Kit. I also wanted to use shades of blue, gray, and black from this month’s kit and add-ons: perfect for my lake photos.

Supplies | August 2020 Kit, A New Day StickersChipboard TagsSo Cool Puffy Stickers, Navy Dipped Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Wood Veneer Circles, Bright Polka Dot 6.5 x 8 Inch Paper Stack, Shine Brighter Stamp, Summer Fun Stamp, Mini Dated Extras Stamp, Large Jane Number Metal Die

For the first page of my spread, I printed a picture sized at 6″ x 8″ to fit the page protector. I added the So Cool Puffy Stickers and a tag from the Chipboard Tags to the area at the top of the photo. 

I stamped the “this is a summer tradition” sentiment onto the tag with the Summer Fun Stamp and black ink. For some additional texture, I added baker’s twine to the tag, along with one of the Wood Veneer Circles.

On the other side of the spread, I chose to use a pocket page because I knew I wanted to add some journaling and include a couple of photos. I trimmed one of the tags from the August 2020 Kit in half to fit in the pocket and used the So Cool Puffy Stickers and Navy Dipped Puffy Alphabet Stickers to create the title card. I typed my journaling onto a piece of white cardstock and added a tag from this month’s kit for the other 3″ x 4″ pocket. To complete these pockets, I stamped the date and the word “documented” with the Mini Dated Extras Stamp.

For the final pocket, I chose another tag from the August Kit. I sized and printed my photos to fit and added some stamping with the Shine Brighter Stamp. To embellish, I die cut an ampersand using the Bright Polka Dot Paper Stack and the Large Jane Number Metal Die. To complete the page, I added a couple more of the Wood Veneer Circles

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope I have inspired you to tell more of your summer stories using the August Kit and add-ons. We can’t wait to see what you create!
