2020 lead me to two new part time jobs, after being home with my daughter for several years. My inspiration for this loved-filled pocket page spread is our relationship and specifically the ‘moments in between.’ Her schedule alone is busy enough, then adding mine makes us struggle to find quality time together. I knew right away that I wanted a bold title on the 4″ x 6″ pocket using the Navy Acetate Alphabet over the 4″ x 6″ January Kit tag, along with a kit die cut and the Dark Pink Puffy Alphabet Stickers.
These photos of us are a result of us having a chat at the table, my favorite time with her. I had to have her help me find the spotlight feature on my phone to make the background black, but after I took them, and saw her sweet face, I knew these photos were perfect to describe us right now. I used the Monthly & Daily Tabs Stamp, a freebie for kit subscribers in January, with a January Kit label die cut for the date, and then used the Stitched Hearts Wood Veneer over the blue heart 3″ x 4″ kit tag next to it.
For the next January Kit tag, I used the “Love You!” All My Heart Wood Veneer placed in the center, then stamped small blue hearts down the center. Before adhering the veneer, I added my typed journaling to show the daily routines we have to find the moments in between.
The pink tag to the right was left as is for balance of the large title and a place for the eye to rest.
For added texture and layers, I used the Pocket, Frame, and Flip Up Metal Die and a January Kit die cut for more stamping and a place for added journaling. I finished that outside pocket with a dark blue Chipboard Label Sticker for the sentiment and to balance the Navy Acetate Alphabet on the left. I ended this spread with a ‘silly’ photo we took using the same spotlight feature.
We are definitely in a new season of living as mother and daughter and these pictures depict it perfectly. We are working through these crazy times as well as our busy schedules that we, thankfully, do have. I hope this project inspires you to look for the moments in between with the relationships in your life. Grab the January 2021 Kit and all the wonderful heart items to document it!
