I love using pocket pages to document big events. I used the latest Memory Pockets Monthly collection from The Lilypad to document my Mom’s visit.
Here’s a look at each page individually.
It was still hard to narrow down all the photos we took to just these, but they are a lovely recap!
I went shopping when my mom was visiting, and ended up with a few fun outfits for summertime. So I documented them in a traveler’s notebook spread.
The background is made using an old stamp set from Studio Calico, Cotton Candy, which I inked with distress oxide inks (in picked raspberry and carved pumpkin) and spritzed with water before stamping, to get a watercolored look. Then I added the title using two of my favorite new stamp sets: Conrad and the alpha from the May scrapbook kit, Hey Girl. Here’s closer look at the embellishments:
I look forward to filling up this TN with our summer adventures!
Hello there! I have been super quiet lately because work has been swallowing me, and then my mom came to visit us (yay!) so all my free time was spent with her. But I did manage to work on a few projects earlier this month, so I thought I’d share them here finally.
This was a fun page I made to document a few things I am loving right now. It’s made using the Confidant scrapbook kit from Studio Calico.
Here’s a look at a couple details:
I added some gold acrylic ink splatters. I love the shine and texture they add!
This next page is also made primarily with the Confidant scrapbook kit.
Finally, an all purple page. It’s a color I don’t use often, but I went all in on this page! 🙂
I have also been keeping up in my weekly traveler’s notebook documentation (in my Hobonichi weeks). Here are a couple recent spreads I made.
I hope to be back soon with some fun projects! Until then, have a great rest of May!
Hello and happy May! I love the new Mixed Media Monthly collection at The Lilypad – here’s what I made with it.
So happy to have my mom visit for Mother’s Day (and beyond)!
M3 May ’18 from The Lilypad
Have a lovely weekend!!
I recently bought 3 bottles of acrylic ink by Daler-Rowney. (here’s a set of neon colors, and I also bought the gold).
As you can see the colors are incredibly vibrant and fun! The bottle they come in has a dropper and I was planning to use that for making drops on my projects, but then I had an even better idea – to use a mini mister bottle and make my own spray!
The acrylic ink is very fluid so I used it straight from the bottle, without diluting it. It worked like a charm!
Here’s an example used in my traveler’s notebook (Hobonichi weeks):
(it’s really hard to photograph these vibrant colors, but they are so vivid in real life!!)
I’m so happy to have found these inks – especially since my go-to gold spray (Heidi Swapp’s color shine) has been discontinued!
Hello, and happy May! The May BYOC is in the shop at The Lilypad, and the celebrations for National Scrapbooking Day (which is Saturday, May 5th) are well under way, with fun games, a storewide sale, and a free with purchase kit!
Here’s what I made with the BYOC:
I hope to see you in the forums over the weekend to join in on the fun!
