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!
