Documenting Puppies in Pockets with Kristina Proffitt

Do your family members (and that includes family pets, too!) have their own albums? Today, design team member Kristina Proffitt is sharing how she’s starting a new album all about her family’s new, furry addition, using our March Kit and add-ons! Let’s take a look!

In our family, we’re a bit puppy obsessed at the moment because we just brought home our sweet girl a couple of weeks ago. As you can imagine, I’ve been taking a few photos—ok, it’s more than a few—so I decided to put her first year in a sweet little 6″ x 8″ album that had just been sitting on my shelf empty. These 6″ x 8″ pocket pages are the perfect size for her, and Elle’s Studio goodies are the perfect products to fill them!

I love printing directly on the journaling cards to keep the font & look consistent throughout and I am really loving the Tiny Everyday Label Stickers, too. The fact that the font on them is a typewriter font is perfect and to me, it’s just the right amount of embellishment for a smaller photo. Of course, I had to add a little bit of pink with the star puffy sticker from the Spring Puffy Stickers. I also love taking die cuts from the monthly kit and using my tiny attacher to staple them onto the journaling tags to give them a different look. It’s such an easy thing to do and they turn out really cute! The die cuts are SO versatile!

I also love to add photos to the journaling tags. Even if there are lines for journaling, you can totally make them your own by adding a photo or multiple photos to them. This journaling tag had a grid on it, but instead of journaling on it, I thought I’d print out a 3″ x 3″ photo and adhere it directly to the tag. The shape on the top right of the card was the perfect spot for a “M” monogram using the Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers.

I used this star journaling tag from the March 2019 Kit to list three of Marlie’s favorite things right now. I also love adding simple embellishments to photos to give them a bit more depth and to tell the story of the photo even more. Doesn’t it look like Marlie might be saying, “Hello” in the photo? Or maybe it’s more like, “Lady, you’re taking my photo again?” Ha! Either way, I loved adding the Wood Veneer Speech Bubble to my photo. 

If you want to create a little scrapbook for your favorite pet, you can easily pull it altogether using photos and any of the March Kit and add-ons. Coordinating is easy (it’s already done for you!) and there are so many cute embellishments that you can use to add just that little bit extra. It’s SO simple!

I have a feeling that this album is going to be pretty full by Marlie’s first birthday and I’m sure this won’t be the last that you’ll see of her. My apologies in advance, friends. Off to snap some more pictures of my sweet new furry bestie!
