Documenting Foodie Adventures with Guest Krista Wells

Today we welcome our June guest designer, Krista Wells, back to the blog! If you follow her on Instagram, you’ve probably been a bit envious of her food adventures, and today she’s documenting a dinner date + dessert using the June Kit and new add-ons. Let’s take a look at what she created!
 
Anyone who knows me knows that I love food! I like to eat it, to take pictures of it and to scrapbook it. Today I wanted to share a couple of pocket page layouts that I created using the June Kit + the Live Laugh Love Collection to document food photos.
 
First up: One of our favourite meals in NYC last summer was at Samm Bar. The Pork Belly buns are worth the flight to the island of Manhattan.
 

 
Supplies | June Kit, Tiny Star Stickers, Live Laugh Love 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Jonah Alphabet Stamp
 
I kept it simple with this layout, going with a monochromatic spread for the most part with tiny pops of yellow. In the top photo I used the Jonah Alphabet Stamp and some Brilliance white ink to stamp ‘date night’ onto my photo.
 

 
For the middle pocket on the left I chopped a larger piece of black and white heart patterned paper from the Live Laugh Love 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack to a 3″ x 4″ tag before adding two of Samm Bar’s business cards – a front side and a back side copy. On the right, I just slipped in a photo.
 

 
In the bottom slots I added a photo of those delicious pork belly buns on the left and I added my journaling to this ‘current mood’ journaling card on the computer before putting it in the slot. I used the tip of my finger and a little yellow ink to stamp the happy face on the card.
 

 
After dinner comes dessert, so I thought, why not give you a little dessert to go with those Pork Belly buns?!
 
While in NY with my best friend D we made a pit stop at Il Labratorio De Gelato. It was worth the visit, and the calories!
 

 
Supplies | June KitCork TabsLive Laugh Love CutoutsPatriotic Stars and Hearts Mixed Acrylic, Stars and Hearts Mixed Acrylic, Sky Blue Puffy Alphabet Stickers
 
In the top pocket on the left I added a couple of the small die cuts from the June Kit to a business card from the gelato shop. On the right I added a Cork Tab with ‘current fav’ on it.
 

 
In the middle I had a cute photo of our gelato, topped with a blue and yellow acrylic hearts from the Patriotic Stars and Hearts Mixed Acrylic and Stars and Hearts Mixed Acrylic. I love those acrylic pieces! On the right I printed my journaling on a teal tag from the June Kit!
 

 
At the bottom I added a little label from the Live Laugh Love Cutouts to the centre of the 4″ x 6″ photo before adding ‘YUM’ using the puffy alpha stickers. Those guys are the perfect size for pocket pages!
 

 
This post seems like it has been a mini food guide to NYC! I hope you got a few ideas for scrapbooking those food photos you might have, and if you are ever in New York add these two spots to your ‘to eat’ list!
