First things first: that is how Emma sees me through the lens of a camera. Yep, photo courtesy of my five-year-old while waiting in the doctor's office. And with that, hello and welcome to Saturday and what I'm doing right now. Well, not right now this very second, that would be watching the news and drinking a Dr Pepper. But rather what I'm doing, what I'm loving, and what's on my wish-I-had list.
Pinterest. Have you tried it? Love it. It's a great way to keep track of your scrapbook inspiration as well as other crafts, home decor, fashion and more.
Now that I have a boy, I need to start acquiring scrapbook supplies that aren't pink, purple and sparkly. Enter Crate Paper's Toy Box line. My favorite? The chipboard embellishments. I need them.
I'm still loving border punches. Have you seen American Crafts new Knock Outs border punches? These two are on my need-to-buy list:
the Pinking punch
For inspiration, I'm stalking reading Keisha Campbell's blog, A Bit East-coast. I love her photo placement, mixture of patterned paper and use of embellishments. I think I'm drawn to her style because it is so opposite of mine.
I'm scraplifting myself. Which I realize seems a bit of a contradiction to my post yesterday about stepping out of your comfort zone. But I was recently looking through my girls' albums and saw some pages I really loved. So I pulled them out and am using them for inspiration.
I made this page back in 2007
And tonight, I made this
Obviously it's not exactly the same. But it gave me a starting point and made completing this page easy and quick. I actually ended up with more journaling than I'd left room for, which meant no room for a title. Easy solution - a sticker. This page is now titled Live Out Loud. Granted, this not at all what I'd planned on titling it, but out of necessity I'm going with it. (Actually, I just noticed I didn't tile my older layout either, although I'm guessing that was because I couldn't think of a one. I'm terrible at them.)
That layout wraps up my week. Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to know what's on your Right Now list, leave a comment and I'll be sure to check it out.
