#DITL/ June 2015

a day in the life…. When I did the Ali Edwards day in the life in May I had so much fun, that I decided to do on every month. So I randomly picked June 23. And when I say randomly I mean I woke up that day and said- today I’ll take lots of pictures and have my day in the life today! 

For this mini album I use a 6×8 Becky Higgins Faux Leather that I got from Michaels when they were on sale last year and I stock piled them ūüėÉ

   Cards for this are mainly ones from Stampin Up’s Sale-a-Bration promo earlier this year. Alphas are from studio calico and the wood veneer is from random
  The wood veneer on this page is from Color Cast Designs. I love her foodie set! I may need another one soon. I didn’t have a currently card that I could find so I made my own. My thought is that I’ll include a currently card for each month. The stamp set is from studio calico- but not sure which month.  Stamps are studio calico and card is Stampin Up!. I used Stazon and whisper white Stampin up inks to stamp with on the pictures.
  On the menu veneer is a Color Cast designs and alpha is Studio Calico.   Top right 3×4 card is from The Teal Lime Press. It’s a digital card and I love it! It’s like a currently for weather. The washi tape on the Yello Stampin Up card is from close to my Heart.

  The acrylics are from Paper Camellia and the snipets are from The Teal Lime Press Yellow Sun kit. The washi is from freckled Fawn.  I love these cute little bunny cards! And they are from the Studio Calico Galileo PL kit.

David’s Tea Mini Album

My husband and I went on a date the Friday before Mother’s Day! This was our first one since our youngest was born in March and it was WONDERFUL to be out with him and the baby. We had a lovely dinner, then went to the mall to get a Booster Juice and tea latte for the drive home. I chose Blueberry Jam, which tastes exactly like the name. I always love David’s Tea for their lattes.

During the drive I was on Pinterest, and came across a Starbucks cup mini album that I thought was just adorable, so I saved my David’s Tea cup and rinsed it out really, really well. Then a few days later I started working on my mini album. I don’t have pictures of me taking the cup apart, mainly because I didn’t think of it at the time, but the link is here¬†¬†if you want to see the steps for make one. (From The Yellow Buttercup Blog). I did find I needed to sew along the¬†teal sleeve so mine would stay attached to the cup. (I will also have this pinned to my pinterest board- mini albums. YOu can find my page here¬†.
