This day was interesting for me. I have to admit that leading up to making it I was really stressing because I wasn't sure I had a story to tell.
My day was pretty darn ordinary. However, in the end, even ordinary has a story.
I ended up taking a few more pics of my pages today cause I just liked how they turned out graphically and I wanted to show that.
I ended up really enjoying those coasters, which I totally didn't expect to like. I ought to know better. Always trust Studio Calico. They are wise!
Since copying Ali E has been the name of my game, I picked up the Hero Arts lowercase letter stamps . I used those for the word 'day'. Love the clean look of these. (well except for that fact that I can't stamp cleanly to save my life, LOL)
That little red oval label is a vintage bit I've been holding onto from my grandparents belongings. I've got a few and I'm always loathe to 'use them up' but if I don't they'll never get loved properly.
I also picked up Ali E's November Studio AE stamp set and used that for the border. I actually finally decided to subscribe to her stamp club as I always seem to love them and they are hard to find elsewhere. As I go along I'll add other sets from the past that I like as well.
I've been trying to use up those sparkly silver thickers just so I can get them out of my hair. They have the absolute worst glue of any thickers I've ever used. The whole package is full of them fallen off of the backing.
I really dislike my handwriting, as seen above. Would love to have one of those hip kinds of stylized handwriting that so many designers have, but alas, I do not. I actually have tried stylizing it a bit and, well......I think I may have finally given up. At least I can write eh!
Oh, and if you know a good source for red label stickers, let me know, cause I don't think I can ever have enough in enough sizes to suit me.
Have a great day!
