Gossamer Blue Blog Hop


*This is one of two posts for today; you can find my AWDML post below

It's the 15th and that means it's blog hop time for Gossamer Blue!  Yaaaa-hoooooo!  This month I am sharing my Project 12 spread for the month of August.  For the majority of 2015 I have used the corresponding month kit for my Project 12 layouts, but September kits were just too good to put on the shelf!  I've mentioned before in my Project 12 posts that I am contemplating going to the weekly approach for 2016 and I'm pretty sure that's a done deal.  The Gossamer Blue life pages kits have a ton of cards that I want to use but never have enough room!  Here's a look at what I created for Project 12 August.

I used several kits from GB including the Life Pages Kit, LP Main Add-on and LP Add-on #3, plus the alpha's from the scrapbook Main Add-on.  Take a closer look at each page below.

We took a weekend trip to Denver so the insert for this month is only photos from that trip.
The front is on the left and the back of the insert on the right.  I just realized my alpha stickers got a bit messed up when I photographed them--I promise it says "aquarium" below Denver :)

The page protectors are from We R Memory Keepers (layout left side and insert) and Becky Higgins (layout right side).  I typed up my journaling for the insert using my vintage Hermes 3000.  It's been a while since the Hermes and I had a date, I think it's time she finds a home in my craft room instead of in the basement. (Yes, it is completely necessary to italicize Hermes when I type it, she's that special. Ha!)  Additional stamping was done using the Alphalicious stamp set from Paper Smooches and Sunflower Ink from Lawn Fawn.  As per my Project 12 so far this year, photo stamping done using the Shimelle date stamp and StazOn ink.

Please head on to the adorable and talented Joy Taylor's blog!  A full list of blog hop participants is below, but if you encounter a broken link or any other issues along the hop, please feel free to start back at the Gossamer Blue blog HERE.

Have a lovely day!

  3. Awesome spread! I love the real life photos you included! Sometimes hard to know which to use. I think you have to include those moments because it is life!

    1. Exactly Patricia! It all has to go in! The good, the bad, the ugly. ;)
