Hey everyone ! It's Mindi here with you on the blog today. How's everyone's summer going ? I can't believe how fast it is flying this year for us. I am so happy to be sharing some summer pocket pages with you all. The new Summer Days collection is so fabulous. The colors are so pretty and soft. Perfect for all those summer memories. Let's get started shall we.
Last summer we went and visited with my parents for over 2 weeks. As you can imagine, I had a whole bunch of photos from our trip so I divided most of them up into events/weeks, ect. This first set of photos is from when we visited the aquarium. The lighting is always so dark in these types of places. Not at all photo friendly but that did not stop me from taking a few photos of our day. The first one on the left is of the kids sitting in front of the big aquarium.
Below the big photo I chose to go with another 4x6 pocket to add in a journaling card. I did have some stories that I included on the bottom part of this beautiful card. I added some letter stickers to spell out OH so it reads OH Summer.
Moving over to the other side of the spread now I have 4 3x4 pockets. These were perfect for smaller photos and journaling. I also used this cute flamingo die cut piece to make a filler card. We did see some birds and flamingos during our day. This piece seemed like a perfect fit. I added a label on the bottom, and a cluster of other stickers.
I felt like I didn't need any more journaling space so these last two pockets have a photo and a filler card. Although I did add some journaling onto this photo of my son and his friend the turtle. I spelled out the word Hi with the letter stickers from the sticker package.
Let's move on to my next spread. This one is a bunch of misc. photos from our trip.
We visited the farmers market, went hiking multiple times, chased down the Waffle Luv truck, and the kids read to their Grandpa on the tramp. Along with some fun photos I made a journaling card on this left side of my spread. I cut some of the washi tape from the collection to put underneath one of the die cut pieces. Isn't that sun just adorable ?!! It is one of my favorite pieces from this collection. Finishing it off with a little sticker heart and some star stamping on the bottom.
This adorable trailer card was a favorite of mine. I used some letter stickers to say that we were in UT and added some journaling underneath. The photo next to it I left simple. Although I do need to replace that label sticker on the top, I added the wrong year on there. Oh well, I will take care of it.
Okay, one last spread to share with you. This one has photos from when we went to the local swimming pool.
Isn't this swim suit card the cutest thing ever ? I added the hashtag JOY to the card and a few enamel dots for a fun touch.
On this other side of the spread I chose some 4x4 pockets. That leaves a 2x8 pocket for whatever you want. I chose to add some journaling and then embellish the rest.
This is what the bottom half looks like. This 4x4 filler card was the perfect fit for this page. Typically my photos dictate what type of pocket page I am going to use. This time this filler card was the beginning of this spread. I knew that I wanted to use that card and I went from there. It is really easy to crop down a 4x6 to fit in those smaller pockets. Go with what speaks to you and work with it ! It will turn out great in the end.
I really had fun creating these pages. The Summer Days collection is so versatile that it has all of our summer activities and photos covered. Thanks for coming and I hope that you have found some inspiration today. Have a wonderful rest of your summer.
