my summer 2014 book (1/2 complete)
I am half complete (or half incomplete for you pessimists ;) with my summer 2014 book. I thought I'd share the first half today and the second half another day when I complete it.
You may remember that for this album I am using a hot pink, polka dot binder from Target and page protectors with 4- 4"x5 1/2" pockets. See more of this book's set up here.
This is the title page:
I like the way the title page turned out. I used Project Life 4x6" grid cards (cut to fit). I used a label from Marta Stewart, adhesive gems from Joann's $1 bins, I believe that glittery star is from a mixed button set I got from Michael's, the "Hello Summer" flair badge is from A Flair For Buttons (all of the flair badges I used are from A Flair For Buttons- I love Shelley's flair buttons), I stamped "2014" from an alphabet/number set from Joann's.
The patterned paper is from We R Memory Keepers. Most of the patterned paper I used is from that stack or from the Kraft project life core kit.
This is week 1 of our summer break together (see week 1 in more detail here):
The pink, alphabet stickers and green, alphabet stickers are from October Afternoon and the blue, alphabet stickers are from American Crafts. The calendar pages I used are from Ink and Smog Editions. I used the Dear Lizzy roller date stamp with CTMH's black archival ink for all the stamping throughout the book.
This is week 2 (see week 2 in more detail here):
That pink, striped label is actually an adhesive tab from Joann's $1 bins. The other labels are office labels from Martha Stewart. They are the ones I use often and throughout this book. The "Summertime" flashcard is from Cari Kraft. The days of the week stamps are from a retired set from Ali Edwards.
This is week 3 (see week 3 in more detail here):
I like that patterned paper with the heart so much. It's from that We R Memory Keepers' paper stack I mentioned before. The black, alphabet stickers are from Joann's $1 spot.
This is week 4 (see week 4 in more detail here):
This is week 5 (see week 5 in more detail here):
This is week 6 (see week 6 in more detail here):
I used the roller date stamp from Heidi Swapp. It's my new favorite.
This is week 7 (see week 7 in more detail here):
This is an extra spread with various pictures of Juli:
The labels are from Studio Calico.
Other supplies I used not previously mentioned: Seafoam Edition core cards; Midnight Edition core cards; Fiskar's 12" cutter; Pilot razor point black pen; American Crafts' slick writer marker; tacky adhesive circles; glue dots. To note: some of my supplies and embellishments are old and likely retired and/or I don't remember where I got them from, but if I missed something, ask in the comments and I will do my best with figuring out the source. I respond to most comments and questions within the comments section.
Hopefully I can share the second half soon. :)
