Warning: this is a picture heavy post! 🙂 Here’s Week 7 of my Project Life. This was Valentine’s Day week and, given the number of photos (and stories!) I had, I originally thought I would need to add an insert, but I managed to squeeze everything in two pages. 🙂
The colors for this week are red and gold, inspired by the Chinese red envelopes that I included on the left page.
This was a fun week to put together!
Here are the details.
Lots of gold for this card. 🙂 I own a couple of sets of gold thickers, and I settled for these curly ones because they were especially suited to represent the snake theme. 😉 I also used these pretty Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic gold foil mini letter stickers.
On the title card I used some heart sequins that have been in my stash for years, Amy Tangerine’s new Yes Please calendar stamp (love!!) and my letter rubber stamps by ImageTree (EK Success). I used Colorbox pigment ink and Sharpie fine point pens.
I used the cool 3×4 Photo Templates by Designs by Lili for the journaling spots on this card and throughout the spread.
Just an easy photo collage and some digital journaling directly on it to save space. Man, was that a happy mail day!!
The newsflash stamp from the February Project Life Studio Calico kit was perfect to document a couple of events that have caught my attention.
This is one of my favorite parts of this week’s spread! (see below for more pictures) The heart design is a digital freebie by Designs by Lili (check out her Facebook page); I turned it red, printed it out, and then covered it with Studio Calico Mister Huey gold. So fun!! 😉
I love this card too! The typewriter on the left was sketched with my Silhouette cutter and a sketch pen… it was my first time using the Silhouette to sketch, and I was amazed at how well it worked! This machine seriously was my *best*purchase*ever*!! The typewriter from the right is from the Studio Calico Heyday wood veneer pack, and I colored it with the Elmer gold leafing pen.
I really love this pair of cards too! I used the same stencil of the card and misted it with Studio Calico Mister Huey gold. I totally just bought the Starbucks gift card so that I could include it in my album. It was a tad too large to fit in the 3″ wide pocket, so I cut off a bit with an X-acto craft knife. The card on the right is a free illustration by Samantha Hahn that I slightly recolored to suit my color scheme.
The card on the left, from the Feb. Studio Calico Project Life kit, was perfect to document our Valentine’s Day! 🙂
I added some journaling on this card (from the Feb. Studio Calico Project Life kit).
The card on the left is from an adorable set by Mari Koegelenberg and Penny Springmann; I added a heart sequin on top of the nut – it looks black in this photo, but it really is red. 🙂 Stamps by Studio Calico.
More collages and digital journaling. And this concludes week 7! But before I go, let me show you a couple more images of this pretty card.
It doesn’t translate well at all in the photos, but the Studio Calico Mister Huey gold has a gorgeous shimmery look – so pretty!
As all my hybrid work, this was printed out on Canon matte photo paper.
I hope you enjoyed this week. 😉 Thanks for staying with me till the end of this long post! 🙂
