WHAT WE DID IN WEEK 9 | We didn’t have too many things going on this week. The main focus of this spread was the stuff we had happening over the weekend, which is when I take most of my photos. Peter and I have a pretty good routine going every weekend where we make coffee and breakfast and sit and chat for a long time. I really look forward this every week. It’s a time where we talk about things that have happened during the week, what we have coming up, and it’s usually when we dream up plans. Travel plans. Home plans. We are planners. My most favorite part about these weekend mornings are the dancing. We play music loud in the kitchen while cleaning up and we just dance. We are usually being silly, but we are celebrating how great life is right now. Soaking it all up.
For the date card this week I paired a picture of myself with a list of the dates stamped with a date stamp. I used Studio Calico’s Color Theory Ink in Blush Crush. These inks work awesome for stamping directly on a photo.
I included a text message conversation with my friends that includes some interesting language regarding The Bachelor finale that aired this week. I stapled a piece of vellum over the top of the photo and added one of Studio Calico’s Scrap Pads to it.
The gold foil “Thankful” sticker is from me and my Big ideas. The word part is clear, so it looks awesome when placed over a photo. I can’t stop using them–they are seriously rad.
I stitched journaling lines onto a blank white 4×6 card with grey and pink thread from the Capture, Yes Please Amy Tangerine Embroidery Stitch Kit.
The “Merci” is from me and my BIG ideas’ Cards In An Instant line.
The “Hi” cork circle is from the Studio Calico Office Hours Project Life® Kit.
I had to include the amazing selfie that Ellen took at the Oscars. This was by far my favorite moment of the whole show. The gold “amazing” is from Maggie Holmes’ Gold Label Maker Stickers.
Hope you all have a fun and relaxing weekend!
