Hi there!
Nathalie with you today with a quick look at what my Summer looks like.  We are still in vacation mode here in Canada, and that means lots of time spent on so many activities, that documenting  some times is hard to achieve.   Here is where this month's CHASING RAINBOWS Life Crafted kit and add-on kit became my most favorite and easiest way to document a rather busy week.  Let me show you:

Since i had  lots of pictures from the week, i chose to create a 2x2 pocket collage of them ( the insert was cut from an original 6x8 Simple Stories pocket configuration to fit the album).   I  pulled papers and embellishments from the Add-on kit so that i can have a rainbow on the page.   I even pulled the Digital This is Life:Oh Happy Day to create one of the pocket cards.  Since yello is my grounding color, i used the Office Hours mini Alpha (available at the CTK shop) to complete my title...

For the other side of the spread, i chose to use a more simple design, as the colors in the picture are darker.   First, i added a few more 2x2 pictures and added small embellishments to the pockets (trying to focus on the blue tones of the pictures). For the other side of the layout, I chose insert  3, and used one of the journaling spots to add a few notes on the pictures.

To continue documenting our busy week, i used Digital TN papers to create the layout and 4x6 card.   The journaling spots available in the Digital PL cards make it so easy to print your memories in the computer.    I added a large title so that it balances the page, this puffy script words come from the Pinkfresh Studio Just A Little Lovely and are available in the CTK shop.   To finish the page, i used embellishments from the add-on kit and cut apart elements.

The PL cards in the Chasing Rainbows kit are amazing, and so easy to combine that it took no time to create this spread. The rainbow card is actually the 4x6 card cut to fit in the Insert 2 pocket.  I fussy cut the  small circle from the b side of this card, and used it as an embellishment.   The green card was also created by cutting the 3x8 card, and then just adding a cut apart element  to complete the page.   

And just to finish the week of documenting, i brought some florals into this spread.   Since there are so many colors in the page, i chose to ground it all with a soft blue (the alphas and the pl cards helped with this!).   I fussy cut some florals to add them to the girls picture, and then used one of the Puffy stickers from the Just A Little Lovely collection (available in the CTK shop)  to create my journal card.

I hope this has inspired you to check this month's kits and use them to document your stories.  The beauty of working with kits is that everything has been carefully curated, that it can easily be combined in your pages.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions on how these came together.



  1. will you please help me figure out which pocket pages you are using? I looked up 6x8 Simple Stories pocket pages, and they only have 2 hole punches per page, not six like the ones you are using have.
