Day 205: June Through The Year Pocket Scrapbook Layout

So when I got to June you can tell I was kind of getting over the whole slide the cards in and call it good thing. We had a good six month run.  I played nice...but I was ready to MAKE something. 
So I cut some White Daisy Cardstock to 4x6 and hit it up with my trusty corner rounder. Then I stamped the cards with So Many Smiles using Canary ink to go along with the actual Through the Year cards I was combining with my cards. I stamped them repeatedly without reinking so it would be a kind of soft ombre effect. On the first page I trimmed out some photos and added 1/4 inch strips of White Daisy CS for the journaling. I do still love me a fussy cut photo, especially when the background is, say, yet another trip to Target or something. 
Then I layered on some of my favorite new cards - the Gold and Silver Overlays. Can you say SWOON? I added one to each side, and then, because I often work in threes, I applied some Silver foil tape to the sunshine card...aaaand I added some very fussy stamping of the sentiments in the So Many Smiles set so it would actually say YOU ARE MY sunshine. Max and I sing that song to each other all the time. A few purple heart enamel gems finished off this page in record time, even though I went off-roading a wee little bit. Now I was finally really getting into the groove of this pocket scrapbooking...
