Grey Day

Grey Day

Hello everyone, Jen Carlson here sharing a pocket page spread. I was so excited when I saw the Gray Day stamp on the Gray Days stamp set because I had just seen the movie “Fifty Shades Freed”.  Perfect, right?!  Only it was the wrong spelling, hahaha!  I can fix that though, and so it began the theme of the layout.

I started by cutting down one of the 4x6 journaling cards from the Lucky Ones kit.  I liked the green and pink color combination, so trimmed it to have a balance of the two.  This would let me pull in different amounts of the colors later.  After stamping the phrase Gray Day I placed a letter sticker over the A so it would match the movie title!

Before we went to see the movie, my friend said, “You’re gonna be sorry you spent the money.  But that’s not the point.”  See, I had never seen any of the past ones or read the books so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  Well, it was horribly funny and we had some good laughs at the ridiculousness of it all.  Hence, the repeated stamping worst on the card from the Traveler’s Notebook Kit.  I also stamped the pink stars on the card to balance the color through the layout. 

The date stamp from the mini kit set was intended to be more of a graphical design, which is why I didn’t add an actual date.  I cut down cards from the You Got This Traveler’s Notebook Kit designed by Bananafish Studio and layered them together.

Lastly, I used the digital version of a card from the Carpe Diem mini kit designed by LifeLovePaper and extended the journaling lines to look more fitting in a 3x4 as this was a 4x4 card originally.  Having the digital version backup always seems to come in handy!  I like having the option to reconfigure a design to fit my layout preference.  Instead of a photo, I attached my ticket stub in the square.  Boom, ephemera captured.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my post!  I challenge you to use a stamp as your jumping point for a layout!  And maybe if you’re a subscriber, alter one of the card’s digital versions to suit your spread.
