I have been experiencing a weird effect this year when I work on my Project Life album. Each week I make, I feel like it's my favorite week ever. ;) Then a new week comes by, and I forget about how much I loved the previous week, and fall totally in love with the current week. :) It happened this week as well, but I have to say, I really love how this week turned out. :)
Most of the cards are from the February Project Life kit by Studio Calico. I also used a few bits and pieces (die cuts) from past card kits and add ons from Studio Calico. The color scheme for this week was red, pink, and a couple touches of blue.
I started working on the right page first (I knew which photos had to fit on that side, and quickly found which cards I wanted to match them with), but I struggled a bit with the left page at first. I had many little stories to tell there and the design was puzzling me. But then I picked a few red embellishments from my stash, and created the painted heart background card to add some pink to match the photos on the right page, and everything came together so well!
OK, here are the details.
The big 6 coaster was in a Studio Calico grab bag and I was so happy when I got it, because I was just about to start working on my week 6! :)
I love glitter tape! The heart embellishment was cut out with my Silhouette cutting machine and painted with acrylic paint.
I love how this card turned out! I simply painted a heart with acrylic paints onto white cardstock, and added some stamps by Studio Calico.
Die cut folder tab from Studio Calico, some punched out hearts and a sequin.
Another word cut out with my Silhouette cutting machine and painted with acrylic paints. I used my tiny attacher to attach that vellum bubble.
The snowflakes are from the Studio Calico Wonderland ephemera pack. I wrote on one of them with a fine point slick writer.
I made and arrow out of glitter tape, used a stamp from the February kit, and added an adorable printable by Geralyn Sy.
I have to say that I probably love the January kit more than the February one, but I love these cards right here so much! That "love" bubble from the 34th Street card kit went with them so well!
I hope you enjoyed this week! ;) Leave me a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
