may is always bad for me + project life. the end of the school year brings a flurry of events, and not much in the way of extra time. on the bright side, i know i won't be short on photos once i finally get to those weeks!
the studio calico kits keep me accountable for getting a little project life done... i gotta get some use out of it before the next one comes! this month, i finished a recent week - and then went off on a tangent and did my cover page. for 2012. because may of 2013 is a fab time to do that, right?
2012 cover page // i gathered up some of my favorites from the kits (and some confetti, of course!) and finally filled in that blank page at the beginning of my 2012 album. i mixed in a few of the happy little moments printables and items from marcy's class kit (LOVE her stamp set!!!) as well.
maybe i can get it together and make my 2011 title page now?? anything's possible!
week 17 : april 20-26 // this was one of those cold, miserable and just plain BLAH weeks that don't inspire much in the way of photo taking, so i was glad to have some memorabilia to help fill in the pockets!
to make the confetti pocket, i folded the 4x6 crate paper overlay in half and stitched it shut. break out a swiss cheese border punch or a hole punch and go to town on paper scraps, magazines, catalogs, or anything colorful you have laying around to make the confetti.
on the field notes card, i used a standard hole punch to punch out the lens of each camera. i backed it with one of the map print cards and then filled each lens with glossy accents.
there's something cool in the works for PL subscribers at studio calico - all PL main kits starting with roundabout will be shipped in these cool storage boxes. they have a magnetic closure and an inner tray to help keep the cards from shifting around. you can see the insides here.
If you haven't had a chance to get the PL kit (crossing my fingers that the waitlist will be gone SOON!), the Cumberland Gap add-on is still available. i'm in love with the basic grey filmstrip alphas. and that grid washi is perfect fot adding a bit of journaling to any photo.
happy wednesday!! our day started with a 7:23 delivery of our new couch. and i didn't even realize that early of a delivery was a possibility. at least we weren't waiting around all day?? i am in love.. it fits the space so much better, and definitely reflects my current style for the house. i've had a lot of ?s on instagram about where we found it - here's a link. if you're in the midwest and looking for this style of couch, i can tell you that 5/5 truesdells thought this one was comfy. ;) now to patiently wait for my new coffee table to come on friday!
