Last week, I needed a photo of Liam for his birthday party invitations. So I asked him if he could take a Pokémon break for a minute and let me take his picture. He reluctantly agreed. Emily was jumping up and down because she wanted HER picture taken too! And noticing she had her dad’s girl shirt on, I asked if she wanted daddy to be in her picture with her. He was game 😉
This shirt is one of her FAVOURITE things to wear!! And she’s always so excited to show him when she’s got it on. So on an average Monday, I wound up with a super sweet little collection of photos of these guys together… and of course that meant I HAD to make a page with them!The theme for this month’s Story Kit is “Bond” (how perfect is that!!). I used the digital version of the kit by Ali Edwards to create this pocket page. I played around with a few design ideas, mostly involving one BIG photo, but I like how the series of photos tells more of their story. And I’ve been on a roll with pocket pages lately, so after struggling to put together a design I liked (for far too long) I found myself leaning towards another pocket page. This time, rather than telling the story of our week, it contains just one little story about “Dad’s Girl”.
I made the title card in Photoshop Elements with a digital stamp from the kit (it’s actually the same stamp layered in two different colours for that effect). The font I used for “dad’s” is a freebie called Pacifico, and I added their names and date with “Remington Noiseless” (also a freebie). In the physical kit, there are some really awesome cork tabs, but in the digital version they’re black. I recoloured this little heart tab navy and popped it up off the card with a foam tab.
I used the same navy colour to on a long digital chipboard banner from the kit. After I printed it out, I decided to cut it up into word strips instead and added it to patterned paper from Studio Calico’s Confidant kit. The pink wood veneer stars are from Studio Calico’s Confidant Documenter kit.
I also used a digital version of the stitched hearts from the Bond Story kit as the home for my journaling. I purposely made the heart bigger than the 3×4 size in the physical kit so I could fit more of the story in and have the heart run off the edge.
There are lots of great cards in this months’ story kit, but the “you bring so much love to life” card is my FAVOURITE! I knew I wanted to use that one as soon as I saw it, and I’ll probably use it a few more times 😉 It’s actually a 4×6 horizontal card, but I’ve cropped it to fit into a 3×4 pocket.
I “might” have remembered to write the story of her “dad’s girl” shirt at some point, but it was definitely this month’s “Bond” theme that got me to get it done. So happy to have it in our album along with these new favourite photos 🙂
Thanks for stopping by today!
