My Project Life album for 2019 is nowhere near “caught up”, but I am making progress a little at a time. For Week 16, which included Easter, I really wanted to use the Elle’s Studio May kit and extras because I felt like it coordinated really well with my photos.
This coral color is totally my signature color right now, which is shocking to me because I am usually a teal and blue kind of gal. I seriously just can’t get enough of this color – I even bought a pair of shoes in this color! So I’ve been ecstatic to see this color appearing in the Elle’s Studio kits all year a little at a time. In the May kit, it was pretty prominent, so I ran with it. I’ve secretly been hoarding every kit piece in this hue all year, for what I don’t know yet, but I decided that the only way I was going to show my appreciation for these beautiful coral pieces was to use it up!
I made the title card and a custom journaling card using papers from the gorgeous Beautiful Day 6×6 paper stack and stamped out my title and subtitle using the Large Jane Alphabet and Outline stamps, which are my favorite supply right now. I really love how these cards turned out.
On many of my photos in this spread I layered up some labels, die cuts, and stamped sentiments from the Everyday Phrases Vol. 2 stamp set. In some cases, I used the labels to add a little more journaling and additional context to the photos.
Not every Project Life spread I create is a favorite, some I don’t even like very much when it all comes together, but this one I love! It feels perfectly springy and fun and will be a great addition to my yearbook.
