Hey guys! It seems lately that my craft mojo kicks in on Friday nights. I whipped up a couple of new pages for my mini album last night and I’m thinking that when I’m done with this, I’m going to have to make a flip-through video of it. I’ve decided to fill this mini with photos that didn’t make it into my PL album (I might have a couple of pics that make it into both) and fill it up with quotes/lyrics that I love.
I love playing in Photoshop, I wish I could take an Adobe class because I know there is so much to learn on that software. You can see here I typed out a quote (gotta love Pinterest) and I tried to make it look like the words are behind my silhouette, if that makes any sense. It’s one of my favorite things to do with pictures.
Something I’ve always wanted to use is acetate pages but I’ve never known how or where to use them. Luckily I have a couple of really neat acetates that I’ve collected from my Messy Box kits.
Here is a perfect example of why I’m using pictures that didn’t make it into my PL album. This picture of Shawn and me, I didn’t really pay any attention to it, I had completely forgotten about it. It’s a picture we took in the beginning of the year and we both don’t care much for taking selfies, but we did this day because we were excited about the framing going up on the new house. I didn’t bother with the pic because of Shawn’s face and I thought I looked goofy. Now, it’s one of my favorite pictures of us. It’s totally us. Even though Shawn is squinting because of the sunlight, he makes this face pretty often when I tell him I have an idea. And as for me, it’s nice to see a picture of myself every once in a while where I’m smiling. Mega heart eyes!!! Just like the digital stamp I used from Kellie Stamps.
I used a couple of PL inserts from Push Print Studios for my acetate page. “Living the dream” can pretty much sum up how Shawn, AJ, and I felt this year so this was perfect for my mini.
Here is one of my favorite pictures that I love to use on my social media, my messy desk. I love this picture so much, I took it for a quick Instagram post and I ended up using it as a cover photo for my blog, Facebook, Big Picture Classes, and Flickr. And also, who doesn’t love a Brene Brown quote?!
I seriously can’t wait to fill this up some more and finish it! Thanks for checking out my post today, I hope you enjoyed it!
