I know I declare this regularly, but I'm serious when I say this is my latest favorite page. Maybe even my most favorite page ever!
I had so much fun putting this together and I'm so glad I decided to film the process. Here's a process video of how it all came together =)

Here's the original sketch which was a bit hard to see in the video:
And the original inspiration!

Saturday, May 28, 2016

In September, I decided I would do a [Week in the Life] type project in the week leading up to my birthday. Each day I'd tell a story about a different aspect of my life: work, family, friends, home, etc. 

I took all the photos, printed them, put them in pocket pages....and then nothing. Well, not completely nothing, I did do [one spread] using a Scrapbook Circle kit and another as my [31 facts at 31] post for the year. The rest of the pages have just been hanging out in the album unfinished. 

Until I received the Elle's Studio Documented products which just seemed perfect for a few of the pages! I used the [Documented Stamp] [Documented Journaling Tags] [Basic Journaling Tags-Gray] [May Monthly Kit] [Marie Alphabet Stamp] and [Little Moments Bits & Pieces] for this page. You can read more about it on the [Elle's Studio Blog] today!

Today Birthday Card

Wednesday, May 25, 2016

One of my besties is having a birthday today! So I threw together this quick card yesterday morning before I left for work. I cannot stress how quick and easy this card was to make! It's just a bunch of stamping in a variety of colors which makes it bright and graphic, I think. I used the new Elle's Studio [Documented stamp set].

One of my favorite things to do when I make birthday cards is to use the person's actual birth date. It's simple but it makes it so much more personalized.

I went a little non-traditional with this card. In the sense that I didn't actually use the phrase "happy birthday". And I think that's ok! Today is an equally good sentiment to use on a birthday card. Inside I stamped "You're Old(er)" just to be cheeky but I think it goes with "Today".
Also something I do whenever I make a card for someone, I decorate the envelope. I want people to be excited about opening it up! I used the [Jonah Alphabet Stamp] and again, a ton of inks to make it bright and fun!
