Hi and welcome to my week thirty one. Continuing with The Becky Higgins Jade kit I picked on the orange in the kit this week but, rather than using the cards that come in the kit, I just used the 12×12 Jade papers. I find these really useful if you are running out of cards, or have used up a lot of one pattern of the cards. Combined with a bit of cork and some stamps and it was done. So let’s look a little more detail shall we?
As always we start with the left hand side of the layout. I tried to incorporate some handwriting and because I didin’t really have a whole lot to say about any one photo, I used the main journal card on this page to give 3 little tid bits of information about three different photos.
I just cut up a few little triangles of cork to point to the photo which the journalling belongs to.
This is my favourite picture on this page. It is a picture April took of Lincoln and I watching Calvin’s soccer training one night. It was cold and we cuddled up to to keep warm. I love it because it’s just natural and so as not to take attention away from the actual picture I left the rest of the are blank. I keep looking at it thinking it looks like it should have journalling but have decided to leave it be.
Over to the right side. A straight forward and uncomplicated page again.
This main filler card on this page I made using one of my favourite Technique Tuesday Studio Ali Edwards stamp sets. I just love that it is a negative of what most stamps are. Usually the image would be the writing rather than the background to the writing right? I hope Ali makes more of these types of designs. You could stamp it on other gorgeous colours but here I just used the stock standard black. It’s a classic…
And that’s it for the week! Hope to see you here again soon for week 32!
Thanks For Dropping In
PS. I am teaching my first ever Project Life class at my local scrap book store Papertrenz this week which I am told is sold out! Eeeep! Wish me luck. Hope to see some of you there! x
