Product Prompts with Jess Forster

Happy last day of September, friends! Autumn has arrived in Toronto, and lately I find myself spending lots of time indoors, trying to get warm & cozy under blankets. The September kit and add-ons have so many lovely products to help you document your fall stories. Today I am excited to share a recent pocket page layout that I created about a memorable moment this season. Have a look!

Supplies | September 2020 Kit, Cozy Chipboard, Puffy Heart Stickers, Autumn Days 6 x 8.5 Inch Paper Stack

In this 6″ x 8″ double page layout, I documented a recent conversation with my son Sam. I loved the 3″ x 4” journaling tag with the prompt, “this made me smile” from the September Kit and I  was inspired to write about a heart warming moment. Snuggling under the covers in the afternoon, Sam crawled into bed and said, “Mama, you and me are like peanut butter on bread.” This is a huge compliment as I will often come down the stairs to finding Sam eating straight out of the peanut butter jar. Ha!

After writing about the conversation, I printed out on the 3″ x 4″ journaling tag. I document that short story  and paired it with a 4″ x 6″ selfie of Sam and I under the covers. I loved the “this is us” chipboard piece from the Cozy Chipboard and embellished my photo. 

From there, I decided to write a longer story about other things that are making me smile. I created a 5″ x 7″ canvas in Photoshop Elements and typed up my thoughts. I printed out my journaling and placed it in on the teal paper from the Autumn Days Paper Stack. On top of the canvas, I used the word “Cozy” from the Cozy Chipboard to create a bold title. Lastly, I placed teal and grey puffy heart stickers around the pocket page to create visual interest. 

Sometimes all it takes is one monthly kit tag to spark a story or idea to create a traditional or pocket page layout. I have so much fun opening up the packages and seeing what products inspire me. With all the beautiful tags in the September Kit, I have no doubt you can document fall stories, too! Thanks for looking!
