Hello there lovelies!! What better way to enjoy a grey and rainy Sunday than to scrap a little :). Here is a result of my scrappy morning activity – a layout based on the Paperdvizhnik´s current challenge. I am late on this one, but hey, it´s not closed quite yet! This time their challenge is about lettering and I do love lettering, so just had to join in on this one.
and this is my take:
I´ve used Studio AE stamps for creating some stamped lettering behind my photo. The hello on the bottom signals a start of the journey, then the twine is supposed to show the twists and turns along the way. Somewhere in the middle you start to wonder if you are ever going to make it and in the end the word smile greets one on the top of the mountain. Anyways, that was the idea behind it all. The quote is from me – I don´t know if it already exists somewhere in this form, but while creating this layout it just popped into my mind and I had to use it. There the lettering consists of various alpha stickers combined together. A good way to use leftover stickers sheets too. And I even added some hand lettering here and there.
Of course this mountain climbing is meant to be understood metaphorically – it´s the journey of life I´m talking about here. The mountain photo just perfectly matches the theme here, not the other way around :).
I really enjoyed creating this page. Love the papers I used, been hoarding them for quite a while already and think this is the perfect spot to finally use them. Also some awesome Evalicious puffy stickers found their way onto this page (love them!). Annd…cannot do without some flair – the are from Badges Folie. In addition it feels really good to put feelings and thoughts on paper this way. I definitely should do more pages like these, as they make me feel so good! Thanks for a fab challenge, Paperdvizhnik, I really enjoyed it!!
For decoration I chose various embellishments from my stash: chipboard pieces, stickers and buttons, as well as spray inks and stamps. I used all these products for this mini because one of my goals for this year is to use my stash and incorporate also older product and media on my creations. And minibooks are perfect for this purpose – you can combine so many different products and really use your stash up 🙂 .
For the book pages I used papers from Studio Calico and decorated those with The Crafter´s Workshop stencils and stamp inks. And of course I had to add a few stamped images here and there too.
I also used this Technique Tuesday stamp set for additional journaling. I first stamped the text on white cardstock, fussy cut them and glued them down. I binded the book with my Chinch binding machine.
I hope you get inspired and take a second look at your stash :). Time to start using those products!! Oh, and should you „need“ some more, here is a nice shop you could find what you are looking for from 😉 .
