Please forgive the less-than-stellar photos this week, especially the slanted images. It slays my inner OCD-self but I haven’t been able to re-photograph them. I’ll do better next time, promise!
Week of: 3 to 9 March 2014
What happened this week: In contrast with last week, this week was a lot quieter – filled with more “routine” things, but still memorable, nevertheless.
Techniques: On the left-hand side, I used the “Blessed” MAMBI sticker as a “statement piece” on a 4×6 card because the bold text helped to balance out the photo-heavy right-hand side. I think that might be my favorite part about this week.
On the right-hand side, I used a piece of vellum + a MAMBI gold sticker (love those!) over several screenshots of WhatsApp conversations that I wanted to remember.
The striped yellow and orange polka dot patterned papers are from We R Memory Keeper’s Inked Rose collection, and the bottom right 4×6 card is from Amy Tangerine’s Cut and Paste collection.
I made a flap to hold extra food photos from all the yumminess that was consumed this week. The notebook patterned paper is from Kelly Purkey’s Mon Ami collection.
That green card and “Daily Routine” sticker is also Amy Tangerine.
I couldn’t stop using the gold MAMBI stickers – so good.
Thoughts: For some reason, I like the collection of photos I amassed this week. Something about the ordinary things makes them special.
And those gold MAMBI stickers and gold Studio Calico chipboard shapes definitely drew me in this week. I had to stop myself from going overboard with those. (But really, can you actually ever go overboard with the gold? I really want to know.)
