Tara here today. I’ve got for you my week 26, which I have broken into 2 parts. My album for 2015 just can’t take any more pages, so at the end of June I had to go into a new one. Because of that I decided to do week 26 in part 1 which encompasses June 28-30 and in part 2 July 1-5. Now, that is actually 8 days, not 7…. and that is because I am going to have my weeks start on a Monday instead of a Sunday. I am hoping this is easier to document our weekends and not feel like they are split.
So, Part 1 is below and can be found on youtube in the form of a process video:
This “oh lucky us” card (from The Teal Lime Press) is the one that gave me the most trouble this week, but also my favorite card! I love the simplicity of the thickers and the alpha!
and Part 2 can be found on YouTube in the form of a share video and consists of a title card separate from the pocket pages (trying something different!), a 6×12 insert (for July 1), a 3×12 insert (for June 2,3 and 5) and a 12×12 page for (July 4). I feel like it’s a bit of a jumble, but it makes sense to me why I did it! I think week 27 will look more like my traditional layout.
I love how this card turned out! July wood veneer is from Michaels and inked with Stazon black ink pad. Alphas for week 26 (I love the color!!) are from simple stories. I thought this was a fitting card as it’s the “beginning” of my 2nd album for 2015!
One of my favorite things to document is a new recipe we tried. This week we actually tried 2 so I put them both in a little 3×12 insert (I cut down a design J). I also printed off the recipe and stuck it behind the photo. I needed something for the middle pocket so I used 2 little 2×2 pictures and fused them in the middle of a shaker card.
Collages were made using picstitch app and cards from The Teal Lime Press. I kept it pretty simple this week and just used labels, a bit of journaling and stamps.
This weekend was going to be filled with Project life for week 27- but that was when I thought my studio calico kit would be here. It hasn’t arrived yet 😢 so I’m not sure what this weekend will bring for crafting. I’ve started printing photos and cards from The Teal Lime Press, so maybe I will change my plans with what I thought I was going to do for week 27 and try something different!
What are you working on this weekend?
