April 8- 21 We celebrated our first wedding anniversary. The left side is all about that and the right side has a few everyday stories.A few highlights from weeks 15 & 16: our first anniversary// going out to dinner to celebrate// having omelets for breakfast// Pat’s bike ride// weekday runs// driving to work// my first clean & simple layout.Fun techniques used: I used heat embossing on the title card. I stamped the large mum and covered with opaque white embossing powder. Then I used a silver sharpie and filled in a few petals. I also used heat embossing for the you&me stamp on kraft card stock. Another technique I tried was attaching a 3×4 photo with washi tape to a journaling card. Other than that it was more of my favorite techniques: writing on photos, using Ali Edwards digital brushes, and adding the date to a few photos. Favorite Photo: My favorite photo is the one of me attached to the journaling card. I love the digital brush I added before printing. The picture and attached journaling card was perfect for reflecting on the past year. Favorite Art Filler Card: I love the one year card. The silver thickers look awesome on the white paper. I also really love the white chevron and kraft paper! So happy with this card. Stamps used: Smash Date stamp, Large Mum stamp, Letter Stamps (from Michaels), You&Me(from Michaels mini clear stamp set)
Supplies Used: Cobalt core kit, design A page protectors, Corner Punch, Ali Edwards digital brushes, Avery labels, American craft silver Thickers, Mambi Pocket pages, Recollections purple washi tape, Discover yes Stickers.
Product review of the Mambi Pocket Pages: I picked up a pack of the life is good themed cards at Michaels on Sunday. I love them and hate them!!! First, they are really thin. Much thinner than the project life core kit cards. They are also a true 3×4 size. To fit the cards in my project life page protectors I had to trim off about 1/8 inch. But, I also love them. They are inexpensive and I like the variety. They sell a bunch of different themed sets. I’ll probably pick up a couple more to try. In each pack there are some quote cards and some patterned paper. It’s a really good mix. So overall these are fun for project life, just don’t expect great quality!
