Hey, everyone. I'm Amy Gretchen and I'm thrilled to be guest designing this month with such a playful kit, "Hey Girl." I live in Salt Lake City with my husband and three teenage daughters who keep life interesting. I have been filling up my bookshelves with traditional scrapbooks for the past 15+ years, and since then, my passion has evolved to include everyday photography. I love how photos + words help me to see life more fully and have gratitude for the details. Documenting life on a weekly basis through pocket pages fits perfectly with my goal to capture the everyday moments and keep it simple.
I enjoy teaching what I love and currently share weekly process videos and tips on my YouTube channel to help inspire others to get their stories told. When I'm not documenting life, I love to travel, eat chocolate, do jigsaw puzzles, listen to podcasts, and learn something new.
Be Yourself – What a great assortment of products to choose from this month. The thing that kept drawing my eye was the big "like" icon stamp. I thought it would be fun to repeat this stamp throughout the spread, giving me a chance to tell more of the story for each photo. To give the stamp a little more dimension, and of course, add more color to the spread, I added the puffy sticker embellishments. With these Documenter Kits, there are always sentiments that work with a variety of photos. Love that.
Hello Spring – I'm so ready for color and the colors in this kit gave me a creative boost. I fell in the love with the arrow stickers, not only because the color pops off the page, but because it adds direction to the spread and points the viewer where you want them to look. And of course, you can't go wrong with letters stickers. I really loved the slender font for adding a small touch to the photos/cards.
