Hello Cocoa Daisy fans,
Today on the blog we are celebrating the everyday moments of life with the Orchard Path memory keeping kits. Our theme for today is project life and we have two designs to share. The first one is a pocket page layout from DT member Odessa.
“Today I’m sharing a pocket page layout I did using some things from the kits. The Orchard Path kits are just the pop of spring I needed! The colour palette is just gorgeous and I couldn’t wait to dive into my kits! I’ve mostly used the Memory Keeping Pocket and Traveler’s Notebook kits along with a few things from the Planner and Memory Keeping Sticker kits. I started by laying out all the photos I was planning to use and then playing around with the Memory Keeping Pocket cards to find just the right ones to go with my photos. Once that was done I started adding die cuts and then stickers and other embellishments. When I make a layout I pull out some fav die cuts and embellishments to try to use on the page and my pile of favs was probably the largest it’s ever been!
I really love the striped washi from the Traveler’s Notebook Kit so I used it a couple times on this page. I like how it looks as a stripe under the cute geometric label. Another fav is the font on the phrase stickers in the Memory Keeping Sticker Kit, it’s perfect!”
I had a little fun with the cups in the photo, embellishing each one. I added a chipboard heart to the centre cup, a rainbow sticker to create a faux dome lid on the let cup and finally some cute hearts escaping from the right one. I love how this pocket turned out!
I can’t wait to see the beautiful pockets you all create with the Orchard Path kits!
Next is layout I created in my #52favorites to welcome March in my album. This is a mini project life pocket album project to document one favorite story each week. It’s a great way to tell everyday stories in a smaller pocket page TN sized format.
I started by choosing planner paper and then a journal card and ephemera from the Orchard Path pocket kit.
Then I hand stitched my background design, attached my journaling on the stitched pocket card and the ephemera I chose to the stitched paper. I printed my photo with the vintage preset in Photoshop Elements which perfectly matches the color palette of the Orchard Path kits.
Next I created my #52favorites Week 10 story based on Christine’s Friends layout. I used the speech bubbles with the lore sticker alphas. I placed them on a hand stitched background using a planner paper.
On the right side I placed my photos and journaling in a 2×2 pocket page with ephemera from the memory keeping kits.
I loved focusing on the story through the simplicity of my design.
We hope you enjoyed this little slice of everyday life with us and look forward to seeing what you create with your kits! Please share your memory keeping with us on Facebook or by tagging @cocoa_daisy on social media.
