The Good Life in Pockets with Sarah Zayas

We have loved having guest designer Sarah Zayas inspire us this month using our September kit and add-ons! If you missed her first two posts, she started off by documenting life right now with a pocket page, then showed us how to use our supplies to create a fun, stamped traveler’s notebook spread. Today, she’s back with a gorgeous pocket page spread that takes its color inspiration directly from her home! Let’s take a look:

Hello, friends!  Today I’ll be sharing my final project using the September kit and add-ons.  I’ve had such a great time guest designing for Elle’s Studio this month and I just want to take a moment to say thank you if you’ve followed along with these projects the last few weeks.

Today I’m sharing another 6″ x 8″ pocket page spread that introduces the month of September in my album. When choosing the colors for my tags and embellishments I first turned to the most colorful photo featured in my layout, which was the 3″ x 4″ photo of a little corner in my studio. There was green from the plant, and some yellow, pink, and camel colors from the traveler’s notebook covers sitting on the shelf. I used these hues to inspire my spread color scheme, and the September 2019 Kit was perfect for building that!

For my title card, I added a black jewel-toned Die Cut Label to the 4″ x 6″ green tag from the September 2019 Kit and stamped out “Sept” with what is currently my favorite—the Large Jane Alphabet Stamp! From there I began layering embellishments here and there, like the Home Wood Veneers—perfect for this spread all about being at home!

I love creating custom headers on my journaling tags, and I used the Title Builder Vol. 3 Stamp here to add “the good life” to this tag found in the September 2019 Kit. At the base, I stamped a phrase from the Everyday Phrases Vol. 2 Stamp onto a September Label to add an additional pop of yellow to my page.

I kept my pockets simple, but I love all of the little details that embellish this spread. I really hope you found some inspiration in the projects I shared this month. I’ve had such a great time creating them!

Hi, everyone!  My name is Sarah and I live in sunny Southern California with my husband, daughter, and our dog, Nugget. In my free time you’ll either find me hanging out with my family, reading (I’m a bit of a bookworm!), traveling, spending too much time on Instagram, or of course playing with pretty papers in my studio. I’ve been fortunate enough to work on several amazing creative teams in the last few years and I’m currently part of the Studio Calico creative team. 

Be sure to follow Sarah on Instagram, her YouTube feed, or on her blog to see what she is creating in the future. We have loved having you, Sarah! Thank you for sharing your beautiful projects with us!
