Yes. You heard right. Heidi Swapp is having a warehouse sale. Each box has goodies worth $110 and more, but now you can get it for $39 + shipping! Yes, it's tempting and I may get one too. Here's what it looks like !
This week for FWF, I played with my Faber Castell Gelatos and created this rainbow background!
If you have not tried Gelatos, you have to! It's acid-free pigment sticks that glides on smoothly. Crayon-like but if you add water, it's like paint! What I did was just to draw it on - add water - and use my fingers to blend it in.
The butterfly and the sentiment are from the October 2011 KOTM by Unity Stamp. I added some dimensional pearls and twine to it.
Ever since scrapbooking, I've never made a 12x12 layout. I am always drawn towards mini albums and cards instead. Since I started Project Life this year, it was an opportunity to start making some layouts - since I had the 12x12 binder. It may be quite intimidating with that much of space at first, but I find it, interesting... and somewhat, addictive. More layouts to come?
So, here's my first ever layout. I love the picture taken so much I just had to give it a full page. :)
Supplies used: Paper/stickers (Echo Park & Studio Calico & Webster's Pages) / Washi (Freckled Fawn)
I am starting my first ever Project Life this year as I begin a new phase of my life too. I love the idea of documenting each week of our lives - being able to look back when the year is over.
So I bought the Clementine core kit to start it all off. But then came the Seafoam core kit which was a mist have! So against all odds I got it and here I am with two kits . My plan was to mix both for year 2013 & 2014. Boy was I wrong when I saw the latest kits. I love Kraft, honey and jade editions! That's for 2014 to ponder on
This week I am doing my first paper piecing :) This owl is just perfect for a noob like me. Love the outcome ;) Cute, don't you think?
The owl is from My Little Shoebox Unity "You Always" and the iPhone and heart bubble is from the kit "Modern Chit Chat". I also glittered up the heart with distress stickles and added faux stitching around the paper (all from MME). The tiny sticker is from Crate Paper.
Have you seen their new core & mini kits?? A-MA-ZING!! I am feeling a wee bit of 'regret' for buying 2 core kits for 2013 & 2014 (I was too too quick) but nonetheless both Clementine and Seafoam are amazing kits to begin my first ever Project Life.
So, what are the kits available this May 2013? Be ready to feast your eyes on stunning kits made for all!
I am in LOVE!!! I definitely love the Kraft, Honey and Jade the best. Midnight edition is also awesome!
