Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful + relaxing weekend. Today I am sharing another week in my life via Capture, a week-long sale on two of my favorite products right now, and the first sneak peek at one of the many CHA reveals that are coming down the pipeline these next few days! You don’t want to miss it!
This first spread was all about documenting the photos + memorabilia I have from a wedding that I recently shot. The left page features a divided page protector with a few of my favorite images from the day and a pop-out journaling spot.
The pop-out journaling paper is a Carte Postale 6×6 sheet that I cut down to 3 x 6,” folded it in half, and adhered directly to the page protector. I embellished the front of it with a few label + arrow stickers, a handful of alpha stickers, as well as a Carte Postale chipboard button. I wanted to keep the design pretty minimal yet still visually engaging.
Inside the fold is a little blurb and a speech bubble sticker with the happy couple’s wedding date. Simple and captivating; exactly how memory-keeping should be!
I also decided to take advantage of these fantastic clear pocket inserts to house all of the wedding ephemera including the invitation, the program, our place cards, etc. Since the pocket page fits right into the binding and has velcro closures, it took me all of one minute to complete! They’re perfect for scrapbooking any occasion that comes with large (or small!) memorabilia that you need to find a place for.
The next divided page protector includes photos taken on the Fourth of July. The Carte Postale Snippets over the bottom photo were the ideal color + size for the quick little blurb I wanted to write.
And finally, for a finishing touch, I added an arrow + label sticker (over the same Carte Postale paper used on the first page) and a little journaling to break up the grid.
