Life Through A Lens

Hi It's Clare here today and I'd thought I'd show a little insight into how I  created a PL page for my week 3. Once again I have used paper from Sarah's AFOMFT kit. I know I'm a little behind but it's never too late to start!

My first layout always includes my week number but this time I also added a January callendar highlighting the exact week.

For those that know me I like to run...a lot! However on my training days I don't normally take pictures but it's a huge part and important part of my life and I was struggling how exactly I would record my runs. After much thought I came up with the idea of using a motivational quotes and this one is my favourite.

I'm not from a scrap booking background so I don't have lots of stickers or printed sentiments at hand. So instead I decided to cut up a journalling card.....shhh don't tell Becky Higgins lol The arrow stamped at the bottom is from Sarah's Today stamp set

Using sentiment stamps are another fab way and this little star one is just perfect

Pinterest is a great way of sharing layouts and I fell in love with the idea of just using single words to sum up a day or event. So simple but very effective don't you think?

It's not always the big things that need to be recorded the little things count too! I find using small dies are perfect for adding a little journalling

So after all my individual layouts were created I popped them in my wallet and it looks like this. I've photographed my week in full and a couple of close ups.

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully you have picked up a few tips.
