Life Documented with Sweater Weather
I just love this collection, with its rich colors, fall inspired pieces, and it's wood grained patterned paper. It has definitely left me dreaming, yearning, and wishing for all things fall. Especially since it's still very hot (105+) here and the kids are swimming daily.
Here is my title card. I left it fairly simple, using the chipboard banner sticker as a focal point.
A close up of one of the journaling cards. I started out with the chipboard stickers that spell out fall, doodling around it with a pen to make it pop.
One of my favorite things about fall is the changing colors. The trees were starting to turn colors this particular week and I made sure to stop and snap a photo.
I printed out my photo of the tree in color as a base for this pocket. I took some vellum and cut it down to 4x6 to go on top. I didn't want to hide the whole photo so I took the vellum piece and punched a 3" hole in the middle. I used my pen around the edge of the circle to draw attention to the colors of the tree. Then I layered it with some die cuts from the Bits and Pieces set and some enamel dots. Love those things !
Here is the second page.
Some close ups.
I saw this card on the sheet of 4x6 cards and knew that it would make a great frame. I carefully cut out the middle and placed it on top of my printed journaling. I used some of the die cuts from the Bits and Pieces set and some of the chipboard stickers as well to embellish.
One of the ways that I like to maximize my "space" on my pocket page layouts is to use the empty space in a photo. This particular week I had a lot of photos and stories that I wanted to add to my pages. This photo of my son in his pilgrim hat was perfect to help me solve my space problem. I added the journaling right on top of the photo. I decided to print my journaling onto a strip of vellum for a see through look.
