Crisp autumn nights call for a fire, a cup of something warm and a good book! Today, design team member Sabrina Poole is here to show us how she gets cozy in the evenings with a book in her lap, documented in a new pocket page with traditional page spread! Let’s take a look!
Hi this is Sabrina from the creative team! Today I want to share how I used vellum, stamps and the Cozy Acrylic to create a 6″ x 8′ spread all about late night reading.
Supplies | October 2019 Kit, Read Phrase Stickers, Cozy Acrylic, Autumn Puffy Stickers, Puffy Autumn Heart Stickers, Everyday Tabs Stamp, Read Stamp, Winifred Alphabet Stamp, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp – Outline
For the first time, I tried stamping on vellum and I think it turned out great! I used the Winifred Alphabet Stamp to add the words “bookworm” and “night owl.” I also used the outline Large Jane Alphabet Stamp, which helps the Cozy Acrylic, layered on the top, to stand out more. My last addition added some stamped icons: glasses, circles, star and books using the Read Stamp.
The purple hue in the October 2019 Kit helped me to choose this color scheme and I loved working with it since it is not a color I work with often! I also wanted to bring in dark blue, so I used various stamps to do this. I added the neutral “XO” journaling tag on the left page to add my journaling, but added color using stamps and labels.
The right side of the spread was created with a 6″ x 8″ page which I stamped using various sentiments from the Everyday Tabs Stamp. I love how the words and small elements add movement to overall page.
To finish off the spread, I added the Read Phrase Stickers, Puffy Autumn Heart Stickers and Autumn Puffy Stickers. I love finishing my nights with lots of reading and now I’ve documented that part of my life in my album. There’s nothing better than a good book and being cozy in bed! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
