So far I have been able to keep up with this year and it makes me very happy. I am still working on last year too, at the same time. And will share those when I get them done.
This week I am so happy with. It is completely my style. A little paper, a little stickers, a little digital all thrown in together. One big happy family.
HERE IS THE FIRST PAGE :
THE PICTURES :
These are Patrick's work boots. They have made a permanent home by the front door this week because he is out on location. Lots of dust, a constant reminder.
The arrow I made using the arrow in the Clementine extra digital elements. I put it onto my photo and re-sized it to fit where I wanted it. I then pulled up the Clementine digital paper pack and masked in the arrow. Printed it out, cut it out, and then glued it onto the picture. Of course you can just do it digitally as well. I like the dimensional look.
These are the Littlest Pet Shops that Katelyn earned this week. Story told on the journaling cards.
Word Art is from the Cobalt digital extra elements set. Changed the colors of the words to match the Clementine kit.
I am thankful every day for this truck. Since we are still down to one car I am so grateful that Patrick has access to this truck to get to and from work.
The overlay is a freebie from here. The word THIS is from Ali Edwards This One Brushes and Stamps
THE JOURNALING CARDS :
Embracing the Everyday Brushes And Stamps. Cut a strip from a filler card and then cut the Monday Banner from the free journaling card here. Be sure you look closely and click on her updated download for these cards.
Sticker from October Afternoon Farmhouse. The numbers are from the core kit.
I had a longer story that I wanted to include about Katelyn. I wanted to be able to read it and not put it on a foldable journaling card. So I used two cards and just kept going from the first card to the next. I used the scalloped circle embellishment to tie the two cards together. Also I used the title to tie the two them together as well. Butterfly is from October Afternoon. Letter stickers are from October Afternoon. The grey/black letters are from my stash.
Also cut the grey strip from on of the journaling card from the core kit and added to the plain grid journaling card.
I had one insert this week. The first page is one of those photo sheets from Chuck E. Cheese. I took the kids there on Saturday morning. I think this was my favorite part about taking the kids there, other than seeing them so happy. It was really hard to hold Noah and have him hold still while positioning us both in the 5 seconds that they give you.
Here is a look at it in the album. The size was 6x8.5. So I took a 8.5 x 11 page protector and cut some of the top and then stitched up the side.
THE OTHER SIDE :
This insert is about our fun weekend. The ONE LITTLE WEEK is a freebie from Ali Edwards. Click here to download. This one is all digital. The paper is from the Clementine Paper pack. The original was almost too much for what I wanted so I used the opacity tool and toned it down and it worked out perfect. Added the END to the work week to make weekend. Added my photos from the weekend : Noah at Chuck E. Cheese. Maddie and me at Golden Corral. She was so excited that they had Cotton Candy there. Katelyn at Chuck E Cheese. The THIS IS THE STORY brush is from the Colbalt digital extra elements.
HERE IS THE SECOND PAGE :
THE PICTURES :
This is what happens when you leave the office door open and all of your scrapbook supplies out on the table. Noah was so proud of his ink pad handwork. Me not so impressed !! This was a design team assignment. Oh well, it turned out better that I had redo it anyways.
Everyday Sentiments Strips Brushes and Stamps. Cut some of the strip off to fit better with what I was trying to say. Also changed the color to match the Clementine kit.
Going shopping with a preschooler and a toddler is very hard. I dread it and sometimes put it off for days and days.
Documented sticker from JillyBean Soup. Becky Higgins date stamp.
Little Bit Of Messy Photo Brushes And Stamps
Another photo from Chuck E Cheese. This one does not have Noah in it because he was throwing a tantrum on the floor because he didn't get to put the token in !! Oh well, I love it.
Cut the border off and then put it on one of the filler 4x6 cards from the kit. Stamps is from Jenni Bowlin. You can find them here. Just got them and LOVE THEM. Can't wait to use them more. Stitched down the side.
Katelyn and her missing two teeth and messy hair.
Used a filler card from the core kit. Added a scalloped edge on the bottom and then added the little heart on the bottom.
Another filler card. The doilie is from Little Yellow Bicycle. The butterfly and banner are from October Afternoon Farmhouse edition.
The two painters.
The letters are from October Afternoon. Made a collage in photoshop.
The circle sticker is from October Afternoon. The letters sticker are from American Crafts Thickers. Stamped the star onto the card. It is from My Minds Eye Happy Days sticker set.
That is it for week 4. Had so much fun this week. How is everyone's albums coming ?
