My baby girl just turned 6 mo! I did a quick 5 minute momtographer photo shoot with her and loved how the photos turned out, so I decided to dedicate a photo page to her cute, chubby face. I kept it simple by just using several colors and only a few photos. Sometimes, less is more!
I also wanted to use the new inks and stamp set that I received from PINK AND MAIN. These inks are the same formulation as BRUTUS MONROE SURFACE INKS, but in Pink and Main colors! The colors are so vibrant and I LOVE the hues!
I stamped out some of the arrows and then fussy cut them out. I also stamped the skinny arrows in some EMBOSSING INK and GILDED EMBOSSING POWDER to add a little shine. I adhered these arrows to the outside of the plastic pocket page, while the photo is safely tucked inside. This way, I don't actually have to glue anything onto my photo!
I also made the top left pocket a shaker pocket by filling it with sequins and glitter, and then sealing it up using my FUSE tool. I have LOVED my fuse tool for creating pocket pages and shakers. As long as you give it enough time to warm up before using it, sealing up your pockets is quick and easy!
Also, I adhered a little note card that you can flip open to the outside of the shaker pocket. I wrote in a few memories on the card about my chunk-a-muffin's current milestones.
I also matted my photos using a little GILDED RINEA FOIL from Brutus Monroe. It worked beautifully with my color choices and just tied the whole page together! This foil is beautiful as-is, but can also be die cut and stamped on.
I added some last touches with some ribbon and cardstock stickers and then placed this page into my planner!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you've been inspired in your own crafting.
Until next time,
