More Self Love by Anja Wade
Hi there! It’s Anja, and today I’m sharing a couple layouts I put together using the November release from Kelly Purkey Shop. The Feel It All Mini Kit, designed by Life Love Paper, really spoke to me this month. The sentiments are so real and honest, and many of the stamps (resilience, self-care, etc.) highlight things that have been on my mind a lot lately. I knew I wanted to do something special with this kit!
The cards that come with the kit are 3x8, and I’m definitely intrigued by this format and plan to explore it more in the coming year. However, the only 3x8 album I currently own is all set up for documenting December (can’t wait!), so I decided to do a layout using 6x8 pocket pages, with a 3x8 insert using a card from the kit as my title.
Most of the cards that come with this kit can easily be cut in half to make 3x4 journaling cards. The floral card in this kit is so lovely that it was triggering my urge to hoard (does anyone else feel the need to hoard their favorite supplies instead of using them?), but I took the plunge and cut it in half.
I don’t usually use the same pattern more than once on a layout, but since I knew I’d be adding a 3x8 insert in the middle of the pages of this layout, only one card would be visible at a time, so I went ahead and repeated the beautiful floral design.
The subject of my layout was taken form the “more self love” card. I typed my journaling on vellum and stamped the sentiment “self care” to add to both of my journaling cards. Again, I knew only one would be visible at a time, so I felt ok about repeating the phrase.
