  Jody Compton is a wonderful creator that has taken the Denim and Blush¬†collection and put together 4 special projects to share with you! Here are Jody's creations along with some background information for the projects:

Project 1: Memory Page in planner

The Denim & Blush collection is absolutely beautiful!  This year I am trying a new size for memory keeping.  A few months ago, Christina shared how she used an old planner to document memories.  I loved the idea so much I had to give it a try!  I found a sparkly gold planner on clearance and began to fill it up.  This year my husband and I will be celebrating 20 years of marriage.  Naturally, my first pages were when we met.  I love to create my own background papers.  I used the Just A Thought stamp set to add different colors of leaves to the right page.

The die cuts in the Modern Memory Keeping Kit were the perfect size and had the perfect sentiments for this page. (Start your Modern Memory Keeping Kit subscription here: https://www.cocoadaisy.com/product/6-month-day-in-the-life-pocket-scrapbooking-subscription/?v=7516fd43adaa )

Project 2: Mini Album

To continue to tell our story I made a mini album.  All the pattern paper gave me a chance to use a cut file for the cover, from The Cut Shoppe, and make plenty of pockets to hold pictures.

I loved the large tags in the Classified:Memory Keeping Kit. (https://www.cocoadaisy.com/product/cocoa-daisy-classified-memory-keeping-edition/?v=7516fd43adaa ) I used one to journal on and the other to add a sticker quote on from the Sticker Kit.

Project 3: 12x12 Layout 

To finish our story I made a full 12x12 page.  I wanted to use the beautiful This Moment stamp set from the Traveler’s Notebook Kit.  It has the word Love, in a lovely font. I used it to again create my own background page.

 I used the blush square ink pad to stamp the word on the left side of the paper.  I also added blotches of the navy ink to resemble watercolor paints.  The last element of mixed media was gold splatters. It matched beautifully to the gold color in the collection.  I used the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Indian Gold.

Project 4: 12x12 Layout

For my last project I decided to add another page to my nieces album.  She will be graduating high school this year and I wanted to give her a special gift. The Memory Keeping Sticker Kit had so many beautiful stickers I tucked them all over the page.  I used another cut file, this one from Paper Issues to continue the heart theme.  The cluster in the top left came together easily using a few chipboard pieces.
