2017 | Week 37


Today I'm sharing week 37. The other day Jon asked me roughly how many photos of Gracie I include in an average year. If I had to guess, I'd say probably close to 60. I have at least one almost every week, and some weeks have 2-3. She's a very adorable and very important part of our lives, so I'm happy to fill pockets with photos of her.


The left side includes the back of the ampersand from the week before, some cards from this digital kit and this kit, both by Ali Edwards. The camera card is from this set by The Crafty Pocket.


The 4x6 "Stuff I'm looking forward to this season" card is from the September Digital kit by Ali Edwards. I didn't have enough photos to fill all the pockets, and I love being able to add a simple bit of journaling to cover my favourite bits of this season.


I found these leaves when I was working on a design team project for Wild Whisper Designs (check out the project here), and I had some laying on my desk when I was working on this spread, so I tucked two off them into the pocket and stitched it closed.


I'm one of those people who hoards embellishments, specifically chipboard, and never gets around to using them. But I've been trying to include more throughout my spreads, even though they add bulk to my albums. I love that they add a little something extra and help me tell my stories in a more authentic way. All of the embellishments here are from past Story Kits.
