It’s Papertrey Ink release time! Today, I have a couple of spreads showcasing the new Monthly Moments collection. The new items will be released June 15 at 10 pm EST. The new collection highlights summer. On my pages, I journal about what I am looking forward to this summer and documented the little adventures we have experienced so far.
The full layout of the Simple Stories SN@P 6×8 pages. I embraced the warmth of the color combination in the Monthly Moments: June journal card collection. Can’t you just feel the heat?!
I used the new Phrase Play #5 stamps/die on the lower pocket. I added some floral die cuts from the new Friendly Flowers Extras set. A Journal Card Border die cut is peeking from the side too in Pure Poppy.
For the journaling, I used my typewriter. I stamped some images from Monthly Moments: June as a watermark pattern in the background.
I used the slide frame die cut to showcase the photo of Lauren in some noise canceling headphones. Her facial expressions crack me up! You would think she was listening to music…or something!
Here, I used Back Pocket Basics die to feature the new Monthly Moments: June stamp images. I layered it on Limitless Layers: Circles die cut.
In this pocket, I used the new Monthly Moments: Right File Card die. On the tab, is a stamp image from Monthly Moments: June. I added the enjoy Wet Paint Cuts.
To add more journaling, I printed text onto a vellum strip. I really like how you can still see the image and the journaling on this page. At the top, I trimmed a portion of a journal card and adhered it to the top layer of the pocket pages.
Here is a photo of my next 6 x 8 spread. I’m loving all the orange.
The coolest thing I learned about the file card die cuts is that you can use them front/back! I simply added a photo to the backside of the die cut from the above spread and embellished. The tab is a stamp image from Monthly Moments: Tabbed. I used a polka dot arrow image from Monthly Moments: June and paired it with the March die and Just Smile stamp set. I also used Just Smile on the the other pocket page.
This bold journal card was perfect for this spread!
On this pocket, I layered the photo on a journal card and used a new Journal Card Border die to embellish the top. I added some stitching and a sentiment from Monthly Moments: June.
Using my computer and printer, I added text to the journal card. I also added the June die cut on the border.
On this pocket, I used the Monthly Moments: Tabbed die cut/stamps to indicate the day of the week this photo was taken. I find that the quicker you document the photos and adventures, the more details you can add to your pages – making them much more memorable.
Check out what the rest of the team designed today too!
