Monthly Moments: January...

Today I'll be previewing the new Monthly Moments products by Papertrey Ink. This is the January collection coming out on the 15th. There is a stamp set full of wintery sayings and soft blues in the journal cards, perfect for scrapping those January days!
Here you can see the Monthly Moments: January Die in action and the new Journal Card 8 die. I love the holes in it, reminds me of little snowballs and would be cute as a shaker card too. I used the Phrase Play #9 die also to cut the snowflakes and "winter" banner from Sweet Blush cardstock. I scattered the little dots that popped out from the Journal Card 8 die around my page.
I chose my favorite journal card to layer under my focal picture, then painted the background of the left side of the page with an aqua watercolor paint to match. Gives it a snowy, blowy feel.
I like to use Glue Dots to adhere the die cuts and give them a tiny bit of dimension, little bit less than foam tape, but just enough. Below you can see a few of the stamps I used by the journaling.

Here are some little pocket cards that I created with the Monthly Moments January: Journal Cards. You can use these ideas in your cardmaking or make pocket cards for your scrapbooking in between the photos.
I discovered that the Phrase Play #8 die (joy frame) fits perfectly over these journal cards! The "winter" is stamped from the Monthly Moments: January set and then another snowflake cut from Phrase Play #9
Added the January die and some Monthly Moments: January stamping to this one. The glittery dots were cut with the same die that I used above on the scrapbook page.

Beautiful!! Love how you combined so many things to make the layout so 'action-packed'! I just kept seeing more and more and more. :)

Fun layout!

Such cute pocket cards. Love all the embellishments.

I always learn so much from studying your layouts. You have a wonderful way of combining colors by taking from a collection what works for you and adding in another color or two. And, while you have a lot going on in this LO, you anchor it so perfectly with the darker strips of paper that it reads as one perfect story/picture.
Thanks for the reminder about Phrase Play #9. That was released when winter was the last thing on my mind, so I'd forgotten about it. And the joy frame will be forever associated with you; you create with it so beautifully.
You have me feeling creative again, Danielle. Let's hope it lasts until after I finish cleaning the downstairs!

I never have been much of a glitter person but you make the idea very attractive. Love the entire layout

Kathy Mc said...

Water coloring under your stamping and journaling really ties your layout together -looks awesome! Your pocket cards are adorable also.
