I was even more excited when I came home and saw all that great pictures I got. Instead of just catching up on Project Life this week I decided to jump in and get some of these scrapped.
It felt really good to scrap something so fresh, even if I didn't really journal all that much.
I have a paper organizer from Ikea that fits my expedit and 12x12 paper. I have been using it to sort stacks of paper I think will work well together. I pulled these papers out from one of those stacks and just got scrapping, a mix of SC Valley High and Spencer's kits. I layered the patterned papers, stitched them down and then started playing with my new Studio Calico stamps and silver ink (from my Kelly Purkey kit). So much fun. I had this die cut made from silver POW paper laying around in my scraps file so I decided to add that on as well. The last silver element I used are these pink paislee luxe silver arrows, with even more silver ink on them.
That chevron strip on the bottom is part of the background kraft. I kind of like so I just left it. I guess this means I need to trim off the top?
This layout almost but not quite fit within the 'tell a six word story' for Hello Story a few weeks ago (where I left off). Definitely gonna give that another go.
big off-white alphas, with some old BG basic white alphas and some newer alphas from Studio Calico. I love the wonkiness of them! I even like the vellum-look of the letter scraps I had to use. I love long titles though and this was worth it. Oh, and that fabulous stamp is also Kelly Purkey.
Glitter Girl challenge at Two peas this week. There is something about watching Shimelle zip her glue runner over different papers that is just so calming. I love her videos.
The patterned paper I chopped in half is this campy sheet of camp paper from Pebbles. I also used the coordinating sticker sheet all over the layout. I like Shimelle's trick of matting a page a few times so I added a sheet of dear Lizzy paper under the whole spread as well.
rainbow polaroid forever, glad I finally just stuck it down!
enamel dots (love these new colors!) and dotted those around the page as well.
There you have it. Two fresh layouts that were a lot of fun to create. I think these will face each other in the album and should go well together. I'd love to see if any one else is falling in love with silver too these days. What projects have you been working on lately?
