Friends Pocket Page

Today's post is all about friends. We have friends from all parts of our lives and they make up a big part of our day-to-day happenings. This day was Martin Luther King Day, so all the kids were out of school. We invited some old friends to our home that we don't get to see every day.

It's inevitable that you will document friends in your Project Life albums which makes this "friends" card from the February Take 10 Kit so useful! (the cards only are still available in that link. Go here to subscribe and never miss another kit!) I love the script font and simple design. I added a little tag from the cut-aparts and one of my stamped sentiments that was already waiting to be used (see more on that in this post about kit subscriber tips). Lastly, I sprinkled some sequins across the card.

For this bottom left photo, I balanced out the layout with a few more sequins around the stamped sentiment. And, I stacked some word art from the stickers and washi sets in the kit.

How did you use that unique tag wood veneer? I added a simple star clip (with glue dots) and another word sticker. Then, I adhered it to the journal card. 

For the picture of the three adult friends (sometimes, or a lot of times, play dates are about who I want to see, too), I added the top half of one stamp to say "love these" and used some alphas from the December kit to spell out "girls". I used those same alphas to spell the date on top of another cut apart from the kit.

I hope you are enjoying your February Take 10 Kit as much as I am. Please share with me what you have been creating. I love seeing how unique everyone's layouts can be with the same kit.
