Push Print Studio Design Team/The Lovely Pear x Push Print Studio

Testing, testing 1 2 3. Is this thing still on?

Hey there! Long time no write… er, read? Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve done a blog post and I wish I had a good excuse for not doing so but truth is I really don’t. I’ve just been living life, here at home. Nothing exciting but thankfully nothing bad. I guess you could say my creative mojo completely died there for about a year. Props to those who are still very dedicated in their craftiness. You must show me your ways!

Just when I thought I was done, an awesome opportunity came to me. Caytlyn Cole reached out to me and asked me to collaborate with her on a Push Print Studio set and to be part of her first creative team! It’s not my first time designing cards but it’s the first time I really took it serious! Push Print Studio is my absolute favorite brand to use. I love Caytlyn’s style and I always find something on her website for my layouts.

The Lovely Pear x Push Print Studio is the set I created and you can find it on the PPS website here. Here’s an odd tidbit, I was inspired by skin care products when I created this set. I have been obsessed with skin care and vanity pictures lately! I pulled together this layout to showcase the set and I love the rose theme that came about.

As you can see on this self care list I made, I’m all about the face masks and oils for your face!

Another collaboration PPS did was with Marisol Ortega and I LOVE this set! I was so happy that it paired nicely with my pictures from a recent Tool concert we went to. My favorite thing to do when documenting a concert is adding the setlist somewhere in the layout. This was the perfect thing to document in my new Jamaica Makes album (I was so excited to finally use this!)

I cannot wait to show you what I’m working on next! Stay tuned!

Mini Album

Mini Album: 2017

Yay! Spring is here! This is my favorite time of year! This is when I have my Julie Andrews/Maria von Trapp moment running up the hills singing “the hills are alive”. There’s just something about flowers, plants, and trees blooming all around, warmer weather, and allergies with the occasional nose bleed, I just love it all!

If you follow me on Instagram and have read earlier posts, you’ve probably already seen the first few pages of my 2017 mini album. But, since I had not made an “official” post, I thought why not share the first pages on a separate post? So get ready for some deja-vu as you scroll down.

Let’s begin with the album itself, it’s the Reporter Acrylic Album. I ordered it through Jamiaca Makes.¬†<- ¬†This is the link to the shop, this particular album is not available right now but she does have more to choose from. (Plus, check out her blog, she has awesome layouts!)

I used Kellie Stamps’ Hello Sunshine Digital Set for the “2017”. I added it with Photoshop, did my little eraser magic as to make my peace sign fingers appear in front of the numbers, slapped on some Alanis lyrics, and viola! My cover page was made!

For these next couple of pages, I used the Daisy 6×8 Printable from Push Print Studios and a photo that I took using my GoPro. I made a notecard using a digital stamp from Kellie Stamps’ Good Times and I jotted down some quotes, you know, in case I need to give myself a little pep talk, like I’ve been needing to everyday this year.

I used another one of Kellie Stamps digital sets for this next layout, Today Was, and stickers from the Fri-Yay sticker set.

This is what I love about digital stamps, the possibilities are endless! I love how I was able to use this phrase as the background to these photos (also taken with my GoPro). I was able to add pops of color with these circle cork stickers from my Messy Box subscription.

I feel like my mini album is off to a good start and I can’t wait to share more soon! But for now, I think I’m going to take advantage of this beautiful day and maybe take a nap or watch TV all day.

Hope you guys enjoyed!
