Hello Everyone! It's Jomelle here today and I want to share my August Carpe Diem planner spread. My birthday is in August and I just love the Cabin Fever collection, so I figure I'd use it for my birthday month. Our family loves to hike and visit National Parks, but it's been super hot lately that we can't really plan any outdoors activities especially since my baby girl is only 18 months old.

As soon as I saw the "Happy Camper" 12x12 cardstock, I wanted to make a dashboard out of it. I also love the map legends on the bottom. I just added some bits and pieces to add dimensions.

I just added the word "Camping" on the side as embellishment.

Close up of the dashboard. This is one of my favorite dashboards I've made. It's perfect for all hiking adventures our family plans to go to in the future.

Of course we can't forget the "pocket love" all planner girls must have.

Here I used the "Adventures Awaits" 12x12 cardstock and turned it into a pocket dashboard to hold some of my stickers and embellishments.

I also just love staging my pictures and adding elements that goes with my layout. Don't you think the mama bear and baby bear add finishing touch to my photos?! :)

I truly enjoyed creating my August monthly Layout. The Bits and Pieces have so many cute pieces that it was so hard for me to chose which ones I wanted to use in my layout.
I didn't think I had enough numbers but I was able to find these number sticker sets from the Posh Collection. The color goes well with this collection.

Here is my layout for the first week of August. Since the boys are off from school and I have days off during the weekend, we are planning on taking a road trip to San Francisco and visit my cousins. We plan to take my daughter to the Jelly Belly Factory. 

I just love this sticker of the truck pulling the cute trailer. Our plan is to have an Airstream travel trailer to use for our future road trips.

Some of the embellishments in the Cabin Fever Collection.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoy viewing my layouts as much as I had creating them. Hope to see you next month.

Hello Everyone! It's Jomelle here today sharing my project using the Faith collection. I was raised in a religious family. Growing up, I remember that we always go to church for mass every Sunday. I even went to Catholic School during my Elementary Days. Having my own family, I truly try my best to keep the Christian Catholic Faith. Part of that is to have my children attend Faith Formation Education Classes and to make sure that they receive the Sacraments of Initiation.

The Faith Collection is perfect for my memory keeping of the Holy Sacraments that my family celebrate and will celebrate in the future.

This is what I call "Pocket Love" I used mostly bits and pieces to decorate my pockets. I love the hint of yellow everywhere.

The cover of this Doc it Journal is already beautiful. I just added some butterfly chipboard stickers and some enamel dots to add a little 3D effect.


 I used lots of layering to decorate the cover page of my journal. I love using doilies and have them peeking out from behind.

Here is the first Sacrament of Initiation-Baptism. I wanted to document my daughter's baptism to remember the day she was welcomed into the Christian world and became the child of God. This is a very special occasion for her and for our family.

I was lucky enough that one of our family member was able to photograph my daughter being baptized.

 I made a peek-a-boo page. The scallops edges also adds a nice touch to this page.

Next Sacrament of Initiation is the First Holy Communion.

My son Jaden's First  Holy Communion. This was a big deal for my son. He was actually excited and I was excited for him because he now knows the meaning behind taking the "bread" during Sunday mass. I wanted him to know that is he receiving Jesus into our body and soul.

I actually ran out of some letters of the alpha stickers in the same color to spell the words I wanted on this page, so ended up using both colors. I didn't think I was going to like it but it actually turned out pretty good.

I had to take a picture of this eye candy bits and pieces and washi tapes. I always use these with all my planner projects. They are super fun and I just love the vivid colors.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope to add more in my Faith Memory keeping Journal in the future when my oldest son receives his Confirmation. Have a nice day!
