Easy Breezy

I carved out some much needed crafty time and have a fun album to share with y'all!  The papers are all from the May Kit Club kit shown at the bottom of this post.
Remember those strawberries?  I added one to this album.  I got into putting lots of texture on the cover with this one. The "denim" strip is a leftover from the 12x12 page.  Felt like a seamstress hemming pants on jeans.  :)
The vision on the pages was for the green paper to be the mat for pics and the dp cards for writing.
The kit came with oodles of stickers.  Some of them looked like washi tape, but I also added some green washi and red washi from Amuse.
The album is 7 Gypsies.  I didn't use all the pages.  A couple of the pages were just not doing it for me shape-wise so they got cut from the roster. :)
Usually the albums I make are not more than 6x6, so this 8ishx8ish album was a "super size" one for me.  Too much pressure for pictures or writing, so I reduced the stress by using the postcard size journaling cards as a focal and a filler.
Were got a set of library pockets too!  I made a couple of tags for the pockets that can either be used as picture mats, a mount for dried buttercups, strawberry-picking-stained-fingerprint records,  mud-pie receipts or plain old journaling. 
Oh my these papers are sooo much fun to play with- I had enough leftover to make 2 more little projects.  As soon as all the detail work is finished on those other projects I get pics taken and post to share with y'all! :)

 Hugs and Happy Thursday,
