Here is week 23. Another neat and flat week as far as my project life layout goes. We have moved some furniture around in the house so I had to find a new place to photograph my pages. I think I am liking this new spot better with a nice light background for a change. I do have dodge and weave to avoid reflection a bit more so hopefully will fine tune that in the coming weeks.
This is the left side of week 23. My cork obsession appears to be getting worse as I am loving it as a new material and using it a fair bit. I also have quite a few digital elements on this page which I find really help me ‘get pages done’.
Of course I can’t go without mentioning my full 3×4 cork insert I made here. I plucked out my Amy Tangerine embroidery kit again and thought I’d try it on the cork. Other than the piercings being a bit harder to see because of the colour and texture of the cork it worked a treat and I am really pleased with it. The few people who have seen this page have all be drawn to this element visually and commented on it. In a positive was I’m pleased to say.
Now of to the right side of the layout. Top left is a picture of my lovely friends from the Project Life Australia group and who worked on the Project Life stand at the Brisbane Papercraft Expo (Amanda, Tina, Beth and Leanne). We had a great time showing off all the lovely Becky Higgins products. “Hi Lovelies x” I really wanted a transparent version of the Project Life Logo on this shot and could not find one that was suitable digitally so…. I grabbed one of the new Project Life cardstock boxes which are also transparent, cut out the logo and popped it right on top. Ta daaa.
Back to my cork obsession …. I do love stamping onto cork and have so far found it a really easy medium to do that with. Here I used a stamp from a gorgeous stamp set made by Kellie at Give a Girl A … I really like her stamps because they are great quality and always stamp really cleanly first time. You will be seeing more of these on my pages as they are so prefect for Project Life. The real BONUS for you is that Kellie has been kind & awesome enough to offer my readers a 15% discount on any purchase over $10 in her stamp shop! You can find them right here and all you need to do is use the code PETRA. Thanks Kellie!
Finally here is the whole week all complete.
