This month's Shine embellishment kit is great for documenting weather! Between the cloud transparencies and the weather icon stickers, I knew I wanted to start off recording a bad-weather day with this kit.
The greens and the oranges in the kit reminded me of a favorite family March tradition--going to the Kansas City Saint Patrick's Day parade. I knew I could mix these two kits together to make a pocket page of a year I hadn't yet documented, because the bad weather and allergies kept me away!
I found a mix of papers in my stash that went with the rainy weather theme and the kit's color scheme and went to work.
An embellishment kit can really help to unify a pocket spread, especially if you are using cards from multiple lines or manufacturers.
Here's how I used the kit to make this pocket page:
I started by using a chipboard label on my title card. These are a great way to add your title in if you are using your stash of patterned papers rather than a card kit for your pocket page!
I colored a circle burst wood chip yellow by rubbing an ink pad directly on the surface and finished it off with a sticker in the middle to decorate one card.
I criss-crossed some of the thin washi tape from the kit to make another filler card.
I used more of the stickers to jazz up journaling cards, lining the edge of one card with circle stickers and using a triangle sticker to start off another.
For my favorite card, I used my sewing machine to decoratively attach the cloud transparencies, then trimmed off the edges.
Are you planning on using the kit to document St. Patrick's Day or another Spring holiday?
