[Gossamer Blue Blog Hop] September. My first ever No-Photo Layout Using Life Pages Cards.

Hey there, it’s that time of the month again: The Gossamer Blue Blog Hop is in full swing today and together with my DT colleagues I’m giving you some inspiration for how you can use your September Kits!

Gossamer Blue September Blog Hop.

HOW?
For today’s layout I decided to try something new. I have wanted to make a no-photo layout for quite some time now but never really knew where and how to start. This time though, I had those gorgeous 2×2″ square Life Pages cards from the Life Pages Main kit and I just knew I wanted to use them. However, I don’t have a Project Life album or anything like that where I could use them.

WHAT?
Well, the Life Pages cards were perfect to document some snippets about this month. On the balloon card on the right I noted some things that happened/are happening this month and on the For the Record card on the left I documented some reasons why I like September/fall, such as finally being able to wear lots of my favourite clothes again (because I can layer them), drinking hot coffee and the smell of the air in autumn!

I have to admit, I really really like how this turned out! I think the colour scheme is absolutely gorgeous – the Gossamer Blue cards go so well with the Crate Paper “Wonder” collection!

I think it would be fun to make a layout like this for every month of the year to document what’s happening right now. Hmm.. I think I’ll try to do that, especially as long as I don’t do Project Life.

    Super cool layout! At first glance, I didn't even notice it was photoless! Great job :).

    […] This month I had the same problem with the Life Pages cards, again: They are way too good to not use them. But since I don’t do Project Life (yet), I had to come up with a different idea. I already put part of the Life Pages cards together with some other bits and pieces to later make a mini album with them. But I still had some cards left, so I thought why not make a no-photo layout again, like I already did in September for the GB Blog Hop. […]
