Bethany's September and October pages

Must keep blogging, must keep blogging!
So let me step in and quickly share the pages I made for Bethany's album for the months of September and October.


It was right about this point that I went on a creating spree because I knew I needed to make quite a few pages to finish off their albums before the year was done. So instead of working just from one kit I pooled all my Studio Calico Project Life/Documenter kits and picked things up at random.


Obviously my main theme for the September page was spring and so I went with a lot of white background cards with warm colours - pinks and yellows and oranges.


But when it came time to do her October page I disregarded my Project Life kits altogether and pulled out an old scrapbook kit to make it with instead!


I did that for two reasons; the first was because I was working with these 4x4" square pockets and I don't have any cards that fit that size without cutting them down. And the second was because that middle photo of Bethany at the optometrist prompted me to go searching for that glasses paper I knew I had somewhere!


The fact was that I bought this Studio Calico Add On kit way back in (I think it was) February last year and it had remained virtually untouched until this point. So I felt kinda happy that at the end of this page every single one of the papers had been cut into!


More pages coming real soon.... ;-)

  2. When I first saw the title and pics from the post I thought that Bethany had made these pages and I was going to cry, crafting prodigy!!! The pages are beautiful as are your kiddos, and it makes me happy to know that it's summer somewhere :)
