Documenting a Food Journey with Meghann Andrew

With so many tags and embellishment that released in September to document food, why not create an entire project about your love affair with food, your favorite meal or, as Meghann Andrew is sharing with us today, a change in the way you eat? Let’s take a look at her introspective project!
 
Hello there! It’s Meghann Andrew with you, and today I’m here to share a brand new layout and pocket page combination spread that I created using the September 2018 kit and add-ons, all about my journey to eating better.

I had not planned on doing any special documentation about my month of Whole30, but when I saw the plate and cutlery included in the September 2018 Digital Cut File, I knew that it would create the perfect layout, with a pretty food photo in the center of the plate!
 

 
The green leaf pattern frame from the Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection and the numbered pattern found in the Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection created the perfect background for this layout. To match the green in the frame, I added the word “whole” around my plate using the Green Puffy Alphabet Stickers and added colorful circles around the edge of the plate using the Right Now Stamp. Those circles are so versatile! I also wanted to bring all of the colors found in my photo to the layout, so I added the diagonal striped 3″ x 4″ tag from the September 2018 Kit at the top.
 

 
To offset the weight at the top corner, I added the “the facts” tag and the “new season” tag, trimmed to just the top portion at the bottom of the layout. The colorful September Label Sticker added the same colors that I have on the opposite side of the page. Since this layout was about why I decided to try Whole30, I added the “you’ve got this” Here and Now Sticker on the label. 
 

 
I had so much more about the month to document, so I added a design J pocket page to the spread! A selfie placed on the colorful New Season Printable 3″ x 4″ tag added the same colors from the left side of the page, the bit of red in the “note to self” September Label Sticker balanced off the red on my layout. From there, I added green, the main color from my layout.
 

 
My favorite pocket in the page is a photo of my lunch topped with a September Label, the “so happy about this” Here and Now Sticker and the “lunch” Good Eats Wood Veneer. At the bottom, I added the hashtag that I frequented during the month using the awesome white Hazel Alphabet Stickers.
 

 
The majority of my words about this month was placed on the ledger 4″ x 6″ tag from the September 2018 Kit, and the green space on the left was the perfect width to add the fork and knife from the Good Eats Wood Veneer. I stamped “highlights” at the base using the Right Now Stamp and added the “let’s do this” die-cut from the kit to the top.
