July Kit and Add-Ons Revisited with Diane Dziuban

Hi, everyone and happy Friday! It’s Diane with you to share a fun pocket-page layout I created with the gorgeous July monthly kit and add-ons

I really wanted to stretch my kit as far as I could and create one more pocket page layout. As I pulled out the remaining pieces of my kit, I realized I had mostly all of the greens and blues left, so, I had my color scheme! I knew instantly that these tags would go perfectly with my photos from a recent weekend trip to a ranch in the hill country of west Texas. I have documented some of this story in a smaller album, but I really like to give an overview of vacations/weekend trips in my main family album. 

I wanted all of my photos to be the 3 x 4-inch vertical size, so I needed 10 filler tags. I had 8 tags left in the July Kit, so I needed to stretch my kit to have two additional tags. I cut the boxes out of the tag that had a spot for two stories. This enabled me to make two tags. I paired a small 2 x 2-inch photo with each of those cards and added some label stickers.

I also took several of the die cut pieces and layered them on a plain 3 x 4-inch white piece of cardstock to create another tag to hold a photo.

In the bottom right corner of my layout, I covered the sentiment on the tag so that it would go with this particular layout. I used the journaling spot to put the name of one of the restaurants we ate at.  I liked that I was able to use the tag and bring in some of the navy blue color to my spread. 

I sprinkled some of the bright, fun Puffy Star Stickers throughout the layout to bring it all together.

I love that I was able to use pretty much the entire kit this month and get several stories documented! I hope you found some inspiration on how you can stretch your kits, too! Happy crafting!
