Another Project Life installment! Yeah! I’m still loving the smaller format and my minimalistic approach to jamming photos and memorabilia in those little pockets.
Over the holidays while I was at Michaels for the umpteenth time in a week (’twas the season!), I spotted Martha Stewart’s customizable stamp set on clearance. Of course, my knee-jerk reaction was to throw it in my basket as fast as possible, but then guilt set in and I proceeded to have a mini debate with myself along the lines of “another stamp set?! really?? don’t you make stamps for a living?” (my inner voice is a total B). Nonetheless, I somehow convinced myself that YES, I NEED ANOTHER STAMP SET and so it came home with me and I haven’t looked back since. I am obsessed with the classic Martha font (Archer) and how surprisingly easy it is to create phrases to stamp. You can see it in action in that little “01″ that I stamped at the top with hot pink ink. (Super long story for such a tiny product demo, I know.)
I also used some of my other favorite supplies on this page including the “Go” flair and girl veneer (misted with Mister Huey in Taxi) from Studio Calico, the roller date stamp and orange Thickers from Amy Tangerine, and the turquoise Thickers from American Crafts. As for the Top Gear obsession? I have no words.
This page was super simple to whip out because it was all about my recent trip to San Diego. I wanted to keep the focus primarily on the photos and memorabilia, but I also used a geotag flair from SC, striped aqua washi tape from Freckled Fawn, and my J & A stamp. And of course, to drive home the point that SD is my favorite city in all of the land, I cut out the “You Make My Heart Sing” phrase from a sheet of Dear Lizzy paper. It was a perfect match.
