There are so many project possibilities available with the new September Kit from Elle's Studio! Yesterday, I shared an 8-1/2" x 11" layout, and today, I wanted to show you a double pocket page spread that I created, documenting September 2016. When I create my pages, I carry the same color scheme across a double page spread, and for this layout I chose dark blue, light blue, yellow and orange. (*All product links are affiliate links.

I love all of the energy in this page, and I really kept the embellishment to a minimum, but it doesn't appear so! On the left side, I used the blue 4" x 6" tag from the new Family Fun Journaling Tags to top my spread, stamping "SEP" over and over in blue ink using the Dated Stamp.
I also had to use one of the new Foodie Journaling Tags to document a favorite lunch spot!
On the right side of the page, I used the Sweater Weather Printables to create a customized 4" x 6" tag for the top of the spread. By taking a 3" x 4" tag from the digital file, duplicating it and mirroring it on a 4" x 6" page, then re-colored it to match my spread.
The entire process only took about three minutes, and I created a tag that works perfectly for this spread! Because a birthday photo was next to the tag, I added the balloons from the Happy Birthday Stickers and Happy Birthday Stamp, along with some Autumn Sequins. I carried the "SEP" title from the left side and added "story" using the Title Builder Stamp.
On this side, just like on the left, I used very little embellishment— mainly stamps and die-cuts from the September kit. On this journaling tag placed next to a photo of my new goddaughter, I added "I love being your" and "mother" from the Family Fun Stamp, and added "god" using the Olivia Alphabet Stamp, along with a Family Fun Acrylic Shape heart.
