Tuesday Check In

It’s Tuesday, and I’m being all wordy.

Prepping a letter that’s long overdue to go out, as well as a comic care package to my brother.

Yay! Very exciting stuff, eh?

I’ve been journalling nearly every day (except weekends)–this is really rare for me, usually it’s the opposite. And I’ve been experimenting with script and art elements, so that’s cool.

More later, once I feel good about posting it!

Messy Monday

I’m challenging myself to get messy every Monday and I want you to join me…

I decided to make a card for a friend (a belated birthday—oops!). So I pulled out the memento ink (Black), the Lawn Fawn Sushi set and my Copics. I found a 6×6 sheet in my stash from Cosmo Cricket (A travel line from many years ago) and adhesived that to a carstock base.

The inside has a stamped sentiment ‘I like the way you roll.’

I colored with a few different colors of green and some lighter shades, and I am really happy with the way the shading turned out. It’s been years since I got my copics out and played with them, so this was perfect.

I even have some ink on my hands—how cool is that?

#MyDetailsClass: Day Two: Quotes

I really liked the idea of this prompt. I love quotes, so the hardest part was selecting 7 quotes that I felt best represented me at this point.

I user some sparkly gelly roll pen for the lower right hand quote, but the picture doesn’t do it justice. I really love the Disney quote and card. The vellum stickers are from freckled fawn’s latest kit.

More freckled fawn, and some amazing quotes. Very inspiring.

#MyDetailsClass : Day one

Day One is all about Watching. I took this prompt literally and decided to tackle my streaming habit.

It’s all here…

Taking a leap and taking an ecourse… All about me, which I am actually liking a lot more than I thought I would (Part of me thought that I would be really boring people if I did this, but I’m actually happy I took the leap).

I had gone through a few different things that I wanted to try, including a Basic Gray binder (which I have since turned into a sticker book–like serious regression, here).

My-details-square-with-websI ended up using an AC mini binder that I got with the Amy Tan Plus One PL mini kit I got from HSN. It is currently sold out, so I am really happy I snagged it when I did. As you may or may not know, Amy Tangerine is one of my favorite designers. And I love project life. So an Amy Tangerine Project Life kit is like a dream come true. Coupled with the great colors in the kit (bright colors contrast well with the basic black, white and gray in the kit), it’s a no-brainer. I also got some photo protectors with it, that will slide right over a picture to give just the right amount of ‘ooomph’.

I plan on using some of my Instax pictures, along with the above products, and my amazingly awesome and way functional Freckled Fawn kit. I might even add some Elle’s studio pieces from one of their monthly kits because they look so close to the Plus one colors…

Are you doing the #MyDetailsClass? If so, leave your blog in the comments so I can check you out!

#myDetailsClass intro pages

So I am using my project life Amy Tangerine mini from Hsn. It is currently sold out. Going to also use my freckled fawn kit.

This is my inspiration page. Love the colors and the ‘happy’ of this pocket page.

How is your #mydetailsclass going?

My April elle’s studio kit looks awesome. Did you get one?

Happy April Elle’s Studio Kit Release day!

Today is the Elle’s Studio April Kit Release. Yay!
And, while I haven’t done much with my kit from last month, I am going to try and use the stuff from last month’s before this month’s kit arrives.
Think I can do it?
Here’s what I scored:
The main kit is so bright!
EllesStudio-April-Kit-2
I need to spend some quality time with my cameo–so I can use these!
EllesStudio-2014-April
I need labels–more labels.
EllesStudio-LinedCircles

Buy your own kit before they are sold out at Elle’s Studio.

Please note, I receive no compensation for this, I just love the quality of the products for the price!

Mug o Comfort Swap

I was paired with the most amazing partner—I got a mug filled with lovely tea that I cannot wait to use, as well as some multigrain crackers, a notepad and pens.

The mug is especially special—as it is handmade in Indiana and showcases a lovely covered bridge in Putnam County.

 

This was great! I am certainly happy I participated.

Whom else participated?

Digital Elements – I have found you again!!!

I went to the Lilypad and have been spending for the last two days–love the look of these two new kits.

I saw another one that I wanted to get, but I don’t think I can justify the expense–will I end up with so many digital elements I cannot use them?
