So what do you think of the new blog header? It was time for an update, for sure! The old one was a year and a half old at least! I used a lot of Amy Tan goodies and some of my fav colors together including lime green, sky blue and orange with bright pink accents! I also added a new profile pic since the other one was prob at least 4 years old!
I am following along with Alissa (who I found at Cocoa Daisy) as she does her "29 Things I Love" this month. Since I just got the WONDERFUL Scrapbook Circle January Kit featuring a whole bunch of Valentines and love goodies, I thought I would put it to use on a mini! Each day Alissa provides a prompt and you just write about how/why you love it. I am even using some old photos for the pictures which takes a lot of the pressure off of taking a picture every day! I love it!
I used a old chipboard tabbed album front and back (old Fancy Pants, maybe?) that I found in my stash. I measures about 3 1/2x6". I cut inside pages from the patterned paper just a bit smaller and on each page and the covers I splattered some blue and black and white paint and then used a stencil to do some painting, too, on some of the pages. I bound them all in the top left corner with a ring.
The layout on each page is pretty simple: a 2.5" square photo, a little fussy cut thought balloon for journaling (cut from patterned paper in the SBC kit), and a few embellishments here and there.
I am really loving how this is coming along and I can't wait to have it all complete. I will update with more pages in a week or two!
