more Monthly Moments: May...

I have another quick project using the Monthly Moments: May Journal Card Collection and stamps from Papertrey Ink. I wanted to do something unexpected with these products, as usual, ha. I always love to try and think outside the box...I hope that's ok with you all! :)  I loved the patterns in the Journal Cards and wanted to use up some of those patterns, so I created a layout by punching circles out of the Journal Cards. You could use the Journal Card papers to die cut shapes too, if you don't want to always use them as rectangle pieces. By cutting them into shapes, you can utilize these cute patterns on cards as well! Use them however you want - cut them, leave them plain, stitch on them...whatever your heart desires.

Also, I used the stamps in an unusual way, I guess you could say. I love the look of "text" these days, so I used the Monthly Moment stamps ("happy day") on a punched circle to add that text feel to my page. A Circle Scribbles die cut is machine stitched over the top.

To keep the layout cohesive, I used all punched circles the same size for the background, but added different things to each one of them. Keeping the color palette similar throughout ties it all together (which was drawn from the Journal Card paper collection). On the "Take Note" circle, I trimmed the saying from a Journal Card and punched a smaller circle from another Journal Card. A piece of resin and wooden heart finishes it off, and I love the layers!

My older daughter just graduated from 8th grade, and I wanted to document some of my feelings with this page. She's off to high school next year!
