My first project was to work with the custom cards kit and I used the Equilateral kit for Feb/March 2017. I absolutely loved the colours in this kit. The pinks,greys and greens really complemented each other.
I am trying out a new format of monthly pocket pages rather than weekly to cut down on the number of albums that I fill. I'm not sure whether this will work for me but i'm trialling it to see.
I printed my photos in black and white to really make the cards the feature of this layout. I added in a few extra embellishments to complement the kit and I was really pleased with the final result.
For those who do not like to add a lot of journalling on their layouts, i would definitely recommend the Tim Holtz tiny word stickers to add some pre formatted words that can really complement your photos. I did a small amount of journalling around the heart on that gorgeous 3x4 card and its great to try out different styles of journalling - even trying out different handwriting styles.
And here is the finished result. I added a few wood veneer stars, a flair from my stash and some Thickers and this layout was finished within 20 minutes.
