Hi! Michelle here with you this morning sharing both a new layout using the March Kits and a look at my approach to title pages.
First, my daughter turned five last month and With You is a celebration of this milestone:
You can see that I had a little fun with this layout, pulling out a mix of products from March’s Kits. Here are a few closeups of the details:
Prior to last year, this layout would have served as a “title” page to my daughter’s yearly album. In 2014 though, I changed my routine up and began including a mix of both traditonal layouts and Project Life style pages in all of my albums that way I could play with all the fun PL products while still doing the traditional layouts that I love. Now, instead of a traditional style page serving as an introduction to a new album, I have been creating a PL style page. Here is how I did that for my daughter’s album using the March PL Kit:
As you can see, the 6×8 page lies right on top of my traditional layout and both compliments the layout behind it as well as gives you peak as to what you will find when you turn the page.
When putting together a combination of layout types, I like to keep them somewhat coordinated. Along with using complimenting colors, I chose this 4×6 card from the March PL Kit because of the cameras-a motif I wanted to repeat throughout each page.
How are you using the new PL Kit? Are you using it strictly for Project Life or are you using it for both traditional and pocket pages like me? I would love for you to stop by the Hip Kit Club Member Forum on Facebook and share the projects that you are making–I am always looking for new inspiration :).
