April Layouts with Paislee Press

I continue to enjoy being a part of the Paislee Press Creative Team.  Liz has some really great designs this month for Spring.

Here's a look at my layouts in April. 

I loved using the Bloom Journal cards for this spread. I also incorporated a few of the Bloom digitals elements on top of my photos. The bottom left photo is a part of minimalist 4x6 photo templates - a perfect way to add journaling to this spread. I also added the 'awesome' photo template with my iPhone capture of Spring blossoms. I designed the 'love' flair badge - it is available at Scrapbook and More.

I mentioned previously how one of my goals for this year was to incorporate more film into my project life spreads.  Here is an example of that.  I used black cardstock to anchor my instax mini film captures in 3x4 pockets.  I love how it looks as if the images are 'floating'.  Faves 3x4 journal cards and press cards no. 32 rounded out this spread nicely.

Here's something new for me! When Liz released her Hello Spring Cut Files, I knew that I had to use them, so many possibilities. I used my silhouette to print the cut files on printable silver foil and adhered them to Bloom papers (resized to 4x6in).  I used these for my travel mini book from our trip to Amelia Island - I can't wait to share more soon.

Finally, I trimmed a Design F page protector to 9x12 in for an insert to slip in my project life album of our recent trip using 3x4 photo templates and captures from my iPhone. I used the pictures + words no. 19 template for the journal card. The square flair badge is the same as the one above, except that this 'love' badge is square - also available at Scrapbook and More.

Writing this post made me realize that I use a lot of digital elements and photo templates in my spreads, but I don't explain exactly how I do this.  Would a tutorial be of interest to you?

Look out for more of my spreads with Paislee Press in May!
