Project 365 - Aug Sept

Much of the time in August and September was spent on events that are getting their own pages (a wedding, trips).  I decided to put all the every day stuff in a couple of pages of small photos.  This was a really fun layout to put together.  I enjoyed making my own embellishments.

Project Notes: 
  • Once again I'm reaching for the Indian Summer Basic Grey collection papers.  There are also some Crate Paper Mia mixed in.  When buying paper, I've got to look for more reds and strong pinks.  We seem to wear those colors a lot around the house and they are often the color of flowers and things. 

  • I marked the grid lines just on the edge of the paper at 3", 6" and 9" points all the way around and then sewed intentionally swerving the lines.  The photos were lined up using the new Basic Grey Magnetic Mat.  See this blog post for more info on this wonderful tool Tilted Magnetic Mat
  • These hearts are hand cut and then some are sewn with applique stitching on the machine.
  • The base of the flower is hand cut from October Afternoon Thrift Shop paper and the inset is cut on the Cricut also from some OA and Basic Grey Nook and Pantry paper.  I didn't want to use too much of the same collection.  I wanted the flower to look like I'd purchased it separately and mixed it in with another collection.

The journaling is just a phrase typed on each photo.

There have been a few days I didn't get a photo taken and some days that I just chose not to scrap the photo I did take yet I'm finding Project 365 helps us catch little moments we would normally let go.  These are the things I think we will most enjoy seeing later on.
