I posted over on 2Peas that I'm intimidated by my Simple Stories kits, and I am, really. This one, Life Documented, has sat unopened for over a year now. Many kind Peas jumped in and immediately offered encouragement and words of advice, telling me to just jump in, cut the paper, and get going. For this kit I at least had a plan. I wanted to make them part of my Project 365, a sort of "sum up" pages for each month since they helpfully come with labels for each month. This here is my "title" page. The intro into the whole Project 365 idea. It's basically just three of the pre-made elements put together. I'm not used to using pre-made elements like this, or working within a theme, but it certainly took a lot of the guesswork out of scrapping!
And this here will be the final page of the Project 365. Hopefully at the end of the year I'll have something profound to say. These two pages were leaning heavily on the stickers provided with the kits for embellishments and honestly, I don't know what I will use to embellish as I'm really embellishment challenged.
