I am thrilled that it's Friday! After a crazy weather swing from the 80s to the 30s, we are back in the 50s and I am enjoying it. I have lots of pages to share today! (Ok.. just 3 but it's more than I usually have ;))
First off, I played with some of the new releases at The Lilypad (20% off all weekend long), and let me tell you.. I really had fun! Here's what I used:
The first page is somewhat Easter themed - we made these cookies a few weeks back, but they are bunny shaped. :)
I picked up a tip on instagram and I feel it will be a game changer for my Project Life. I tend to rarely include hybrid cards in my album because I don't want to bother filling up a full 11x8.5 sheet of paper to print out.. So using a 6x4 sheet of paper is the perfect solution! Granted, it's more expensive per journaling card than the larger paper, but totally worth it for me if it gets me to print more!
What brand of photo paper do I use? I go with Canon - I find it has excellent value. I use glossy 4x6 for photos, and matte 8.5x11 for hybrid projects. And now I will also use the matte 6x4 for Project Life cards.
After a couple of panicky work emergencies, I can finally take a breath and rejoice that the warmer weather has arrived! Granted, it is not yet here to stay for good, as we likely will be getting some snow later in the week, but I am choosing to ignore that for now. :)
I have been super busy with work, but today I carved out a couple hours for myself and got crafty. It was fun to play! I made a card using the lovely collection Sahlin Studio made for the April BYOC at The Lilypad.
I also grabbed the free April template on the Sahlin Studio blog and used it for my card. :)
I love a good sale, and there's a great one going on at The Lilypad right now. Sadly, several products are being retired to make space for new ones.. and the good news is that there's plenty of deals to be made!
Here's one font that is just adorable:
It was perfect for this page I made to scrap this week's events:
