Today I'm sharing how I brought together my words and photos in my Project Life® 2019 album for June.
This month I decided to incorporate a few 6x8 page protectors as inserts and play around with some transparent embellishments in a few of the pockets. I also knew I wanted to end this month with a sheet of pattern paper I love from Crate Paper that celebrates summer.
I started the process by simply viewing what photos I took in June and printed out a bunch sized to 3 inch x 3 inch to fit into the back of the page protector I used last month.
I'm loving the process of revisiting my photos at the end of the month for the specific purpose of deciding which ones to incorporate into this project. This time I printed out 17, 3x3 photos and figured I would make them work.

As I mentioned above, the other thing I wanted to play around with this month was incorporating 6x8 inserts to hold journaling, photos and embellishments (mainly from the June Stories By The Month™ kit). I also recently purchased this pack of plastic hearts + stars and was excited to incorporate them as well. Check your stash because you might already have a fun collection of plastic hearts and stars that you could use if you like this concept.
For the pockets with the stars I ended up adding a few other smaller star embellishments from my stash and then stitched across the top of the pockets to keep those in place.
Avery Index tabswere added along the outside edge of all the inserts. On the front of them I used stickers from the June Stories By The Month™ kit and on the back I used phrases from this roller stamp.
I love how it feels like I've included a little summer story booklet in between the two larger 9x12 page protectors.
Journaling was added to the "things I love about June" card and on the "June Details" card below.
I also added fun circle puffy stickers that were a recent kit add on option on the outside and inside of the page protectors in a couple places.
You can also see above that I cut down one of the 9x12 page protectors (this one) to hold the remaining photos I wanted to include and cut up some of the journal cards from the kit as well.
Totally love the see-through and layering happening this month with the page protectors.
