We are so excited to welcome Ingunn Markiewicz to the blog as our October guest designer today! The first thing we notice about Ingunn’s memory-keeping projects in pockets and traveler’s notebooks are her amazing photos, then the subtle and perfect ways that she highlights her cherished memories with product placement. We knew that her style would be perfect with our October kit and extras, and we think you will agree! Let’s take a look at her first project of the month!
Hi everyone! I’m excited to share my first project using the October 2019 Kit and add-ons with you today. Like most of the human population, I love fall colors (and candles and cozy pumpkin-spiced sweaters or whatever), and I definitely love documenting our adventures finding those colors.
I decided to make a 6″ x 8″ spread for this short, but happy little family hike. I love the exhilarated smile on my daughter’s face, so I turned that photo into a full 6″ x 8″, and printed three additional photos at 3″ x 4″ with a 50 pixel-wide white border. I loved the yellow journaling tag with the big ampersand from the October 2019 Kit—in my head that always means “together”—so I ran it through my printer to add journaling, then cut off the bottom, and rounded two corners.
I adhered the journaling tag to the 6″ x 8″ photo using adhesive foam, and glued down a couple of those gorgeous Wood Veneer Leaves “falling” down behind it. I wanted to keep that feeling of falling leaves floating onto the other side of the spread, so I cut down a piece of vellum to 3″ x 4″ and glued more leaves onto that to slide into my pocket.
There are some leaves of that same design on the Autumn Puffy Stickers too, so I added some of those around the wood veneer leaves to add a bit of color. I also put a “yum” puffy sticker on the picnic photo and the “family fun” puffy sticker on top of the ampersand to add contrast.
Thanks so much for the opportunity to play with these gorgeous products! I can’t wait to dig into the rest of them throughout the month!
My name is Ingunn and I was born and raised in beautiful Norway, but now live in the equally beautiful Washington with my husband, two little girls, and our Italian greyhound. I love hiking and running in the mountains and then coming back home to relive those memories through scrapbooking! This hobby is incredibly therapeutic for me. I’m on the Ali Edwards Creative Team and love to focus on big photos, journaling with an overload of feels, and simple design. I mostly share my stuff over on my Instagram account!
Wow, what a beautiful first project! We can’t wait to see what Ingunn has to share with us next week! Until then, be sure to follow her on Instagram for loads of gorgeous pocket page inspiration!
