Jane's Days 8, 9 and 10

Day 8

The first part of today's page is quite straightforward and follows the pattern I've already set.

All of the photos in my album so far have been portrait. I have been very careful to turn my camera as I knew the wallet pockets were more suited to this orientation. But I knew the time would come when a photo just had to be landscape and that happened today.

So I used a page protector with a 6" x 4" pocket at the bottom and two 3" x 4" pockets at the top. I slipped a favourite pice of patterned paper in the top left pocket and a strip of golden openwork ribbon in the right pocket. I die cut two stars and glued them back to back onto the ribbon.

Have you noticed the ribbon tied paperclip? Well that's holding an extra journal card in place behind the photo. I simply cut a 6" x 4" piece of card, stamped a row of trees across the bottom and then threaded beads to make a border above the trees.

 I wrote my extra journalling and then hand drew the lines.

 I also decorated the back using washi tape - this also covered the tape holding the bead string in place - and added even more journalling.

Day 9

A special day for me as it's my grandson's 1st birthday. The extra page from yesterday was really useful here too as it meant I could use more photos than a normal page would allow.  

The back of the ribbon works well on the top left pocket and I added a piece of patterned paper with a die cut one and letter stickers to the top right pocket.  I photoshopped two photos to fill the 6" x 4" pocket.

The rest of day 9's page follows my usual pattern.

Day 10

The only thing of note on this page is the use of the left over border from day 7's number and the addition of three golden sparkly hearts to the number card.

And here's the finished page:
