Monthly Moments: June...

Papertrey Ink's Monthly Moments team is up today to share with you the FAB new products coming out this month! The June journaling cards are to die for, the colors are so fun. I hope you'll agree! I couldn't help but make another mini album, it just came together so effortlessly with these great things to work with.
The base of the album is made from the new Monthly Moments: June Journal Cards. On the front cover, I used the new Monthly Moments: June stamps and dies ("snapshots", the arrow, "lazy days" are all stamped).

On the first page, I couldn't help sharing this picture I took yesterday on my birthday at sunset. This photo captured so many things I love...being outdoors, sunshine, the sunset, the color red, flowers on my deck, summer. And behind the photo - one of my favorite papers EVER! That stripe!

Next, in my album I wanted to add some of our SUMMER bucket list items. We have a lot of them, so I made 2 pages with the new Journal Card 2 and Journal Card 3 dies!  I might actually add a couple more pages to this for more bucket list items.
Isn't it cute how you can check them off when completing them? (Page 2 of our summer bucket list.)

To dress up the ends of these die cut journal cards, I used the new Monthly Moments: Tabbed stamps and dies ("love this" and "makes me happy" tabs).

Next is a larger page with one of the 4x6" Journal Cards. Another use of the Monthly Moments: Tabbed stamp set to draw your eye to the cute photo of my Kati and her new friend Cassidy. Of course I had to document pool days. We'll be spending lots of days at the pool this summer.
(Tab up close.) Kati met a new friend at the end of the school year. She rode her bus, and we just found out she lives right around the corner and is also going into 4th grade!
Next, I added some photos of our recent trip to Grand Lake, CO last week. See the little striped end on my photo? This was cut with a new die called Journal Card Borders. (There are 4 different borders in this set.)

Under these 3 photos is the journaling that goes with it. I attached two small cards together to make it longer.

My in-laws were here visiting for the last 3 weeks from NY. We have been doing mini outings and took the 4-day trip to Grand Lake together. They just left yesterday. When we came back from the mountains, we took the girls to the Wildlife Museum to see the 3D movie The Arctic at the IMAX and out to lunch for the last day.

Last is just a fun page made with the Monthly Moments: Tabbed stamps. You could journal on the back if you wish.

I've taken over 900 pics this month. I wish I could put them ALL in my album! I'm sure I'll add more as the month goes on, or choose some more from our Grand Lake trip to add. We saw a gorgeous waterfall and went to the Rocky Mountains to see the tops of the mountains. Did you know it's considered tundra up there? Anyway...hope you enjoyed these ideas with the Monthly Moments: June products. You can grab them at on June 15th at 10pm EST.
