Week 3! I'm enjoying mixing up the pocket styles. This week I used Design A (back side of week 2) and Design F. 3x4" pockets are my favorite. I'm still keeping things colorful and trying my best to capture pieces of our life in Austin. I'm already excited to look back on this album.
Here is the left side. I had collected a lot of pictures for this post, so I used them throughout the week. Those leopard print slippers are from high school and have holes in them. They probably won't last too much longer so I decided to include a photo of them in my book.
This year, I'm also trying to use more stamps. Both the ones I already have, and all the stamps I recently designed. I haven't really ventured out into using colored inks yet. I just use black StazOn ink. That way I only have to decide what stamp to use, not what stamp and what color. I also don't have to clean my stamps after I use them!
This was an instragram photo from "workspace wednesday". It wasn't a very good photo, we have the worst overhead lighting in the dining room that turns everything yellow. I converted it to black and white in Afterlight and then threw a filter on it. Much better. I love the pink letters on the black and white too!
Here's the right side. Design F is my favorite page style. I have sooo many 3x4" cards so it's a really good layout to get them used up.
I didn't even think about it when I was doing it, but I wrote our grocery list on a 4x6" grid card. (Those are the cards I used, but $8.99 seems pricey?) Since I had so many pockets this week, I decided to use it in my album. I clipped the receipt to the empty side with a blue arrow clip. The papers were just scraps that I stuck on there to add some color.
I found this graffiti near our apartment in Austin. A couple of weeks ago it was something different. I'm sort of hoping that it will keep changing. The coffee cup on the right is from my January printable set. I'm working on the February designs, hoping to launch soon!
I stole the photo on the left from Annette! We had a Project Life party at Archiver's. It was super fun. I'm sad to see the store go.
The right pocket is trimmed down from a 12-pack of Shiner Bock. I liked the colors and it's my favorite beer right now.
More packaging saved. The Trader Joe's tag in the shape of Texas is probably my favorite thing ever. I LOVE Trader Joe's. There isn't one near me (yet!) in Austin, so sad. We were in San Antonio one day and I noticed a TJ's. I bought a reusable bag there and this tag was on it. Saved for sure.
Next to that is from a box of Cherry Larabars. I decided to just buy a whole box of them because I was buying them so often. They're delicious.
