Agnus | Live Laugh Love Pocket Pages

Happy Mother's Day! I hope you have a lovely day planned with your loved ones or perhaps are just enjoying some 'me time' today :) I am once again using the awesome Elle's Studio 'Live Laugh Love' collection to document the second part of March and am sharing a few of my 'go-to' design tips along the way. 

While planning out my pages, I often select a single element that can be repeated throughout the pockets to create a cohesive look across my pages and while my previous post using this collection focused on horizontal elements, this time I repeated woodgrain paper and wood veneer pieces to help tie everything in together. This is particularly helpful when the content or colours of your photos don't necessarily match each other as my pages show.

I love the look of titles directly on my photos and combining the white alpha stickers in the classic Elle's Studio font with a strip of patterned paper and a few enamel dots was an easy way to dress up one of the many pics I captured of all the March rain ;) 


I may have already mentioned how much I loved the fun accents in this collection and decided to keep my cards clutter free this month with just a few simple layers. 


Besides the 6x6" paper pad, I also got a few single 12x12" sheets from this range and couldn't wait to add a little colour to my favourite pattern. Using the various cut-outs and die-cuts as a colour reference, I coloured in some of the cute hearts to create a customized card. 
 I added the reverse woodgrain pattern over a portion of the card, and split it between two pockets to document my little guy's birthday. 


I added in a bit more colour for the second part of the month to liven up the photos. 


And balanced out the brighter pics, with black and white patterned cards. 


Another way to tie your cards in with your photos is to use accent pieces in a colour that is present in the photo - note how the tiny red heart picks up the colour of our puppy's harness. 


 Layers and mixed textures are a good way to add little pops of colour to your pages, and are great for dressing up photos with a lot of negative space.
