You wouldn’t expect black to feel very summery, but coupling it with the mint and silver-foiled tapes from Little B, plus a few stickers from the kit, made it feel both classy and still Spring-like. This week’s spread just made me feel so grown up and ladylike.
I also added a pocket card from the MAMBI Botanical Gardens pack. These cards are so freaking pretty, and the grid or dot-grid pattern on the back makes it easy to write in straight lines. You’ve seen me do a bit of journalling this way in previous weeks using Project Life cards. I don’t know if it’s because the corners aren’t rounded on these or what — they’re the exact same size! — but it feels like there’s a heck of a lot more room on the MAMBI ones. So much so that half the card is blank even though I had quite a bit to say this week.
That massive black and gold sticker is from a Heidi Swapp pack, by the way. It’s only there because I messed up: I’d started writing before I decorated because I was late to the planner party this week.
At this stage, I can’t remember exactly what I messed up, but it was enough that I wanted it gone. This sticker was the only one in my stash that was large enough to cover up what I’d written and matched the week’s theme.
