Living Our Best Life! by Odessa Reichel

Hi, Odessa here with some pocket pages to share using the Hello Today collection! It’s the perfect collection to start the year (or catch up on years past) as it has a 12x12 cardstock cut apart for each month and tons of embellishments! Great for putting together a quick yearbook. I’m using it to catch up on and make some quick pages from the past year and this line makes it so easy.



When I saw that there was a coordinating Flipbook in a cute black and white dot pattern I knew I had to use it! I decided to embellish the cover a little to make it more personal.


I used one of the chipboard frames on the cover with a nice black and white floral pattern from the Hello Today 6x8 paper pad backing it. The sticker book has a couple of fun pages - one is full of wood frames and the next is letters that fit on them perfect to make a letterboard! I used one in the middle for the year and surrounded it with various sized heart stickers from the sticker book and combo sticker sheet as well as some enamel dots. I know I’ve said it before but the chipboard frames make creating nice looking covers so easy.



The 6x8 pad has some really cute pages so I used one for the cover page. It’s great on it’s own so I just slipped it into the protector. So easy!



This layout has one of the bold monthly 4x6 cards from the Hello Today 12x12 cardstock. I used a couple of cards from the same page to go with my photos and lots of stickers and embellishments all over the page.



Most of the embellishments aren’t tied to any specific month or season which makes it even easier. Here I used a journaling 3x4 card with a mix of stickers, journaling bits, and bits and pieces from the collection. I added some more embellishments right on the photo next to it - the colours of Hello Today are so easy to use!



Here’s another SN@P! page using Hello Today. I used one of the calendar cards from the August cut apart cardstock to mark the days the photos are from and coordinated embellishments across the page.



I used one of the Hello Today foam stickers right on this photo with some cute chipboard hearts, enamel dots, stickers and a die cut rainbow. I just love this cluster of embellishments! If you’re looking to get caught up quickly on some pages or want to coordinate the year ahead, I recommend picking up Hello Today!
