Project Life - October - This is a story about...

hi there! i have just completed my project life spread for october and would like to share it with you! for the month of october, i created a 4 page spread using mainly the studio calico "double scoop" pl kit. i love the colors of this kit and of course the pebbles alphabet stamp which was included in the kit! i love how easy is it to add my own text to the cards using the alphabet stamp, however, i think i need more practice as they didn't turn out as well as it want them to *laughs*.

this is page 1 and 2.

my favourite card in this kit has to be the "this is a story about..." card so i used it as my title card this month. another favourite in this kit would be the gold labels. i love these labels as they make it easy for me to add journaling to my photos.

a piece of vellum strips by basic grey is included in the kit. it was pretty and i didn't bear to take it apart hence, i decided to use it as a filter card. i added a doily and stamped the words 'hugs and kisses' on it. 

i also used this little template created by studio calico creative team member shanna noel. she designed this template to work with the circle stickers included in studio calico "cuppa" pl kit. however, i have not received my kit yet, so i used a badge from one of the older studio calico kits. if you like this template, you can download it here.

this is page 3 and 4. for this month's spread, i tried to keep it simple by using mainly products from the kit. i think it helps me cut down on the time required to complete the spread as i work with the cards and embellishments in the kit and not be overwhelmed by the other products from my stash.

a packet of woodgrain sequins was included in the kit. i love how it was packaged so i decided to use it as a filter card as well. i added a sticker from dear lizzy "polka dot party" for more interest.

that's all i got to share for today! i hope you enjoyed this spread as much as i did. thanks for dropping by and have a good week ahead!
