[ETA - Okay I forgot, but I wanted to say, wtf? - what the Flock? Heh heh.
For my Project Life going back 2 months, I have a few pictures for each week, and lots of 'stuff' to fill the pockets. I've been scrapping since 7th grade ('87, baby!) and stopped when I started teaching (14 years ago? really?), but I
This past week was dedicated to my newly arrived Project Life album (turquoise edition). I've got two months to catch up on, but I'm so excited!! I did crank out one card for use on the first layout page - our One Word for 2011. I shared a few ideas with DH - balance, family, nurture, twins - and this was his pick.
One favorite saying between the three of us is "Fa-Mi-Lee!", accenting each syllable. We also do Family Kisses where we say, "Let's do Caitlyn first...", then DH and I kiss her cheeks with tons of tiny, fast kisses. Caitlyn announces who to do next for the round of kisses, then we announce and kiss the last parent. (Don't know what we'll do when we add two more to the mix...)
I did a different spin on the PTI Monday Make-It challenge (glitter strips - link here) and chose to use rainbow flock on scor-tape strips. Flock is PERFECT when you're not feelin' the glitter. And using scor-tape, you can really rub the flock in there.
The sentiment is a $1 'family' stamp colored with Crayola markers. I like their distressed look. But using a rubber stamp makes the whole process go backwards - stamping the image first, then Fillable Frame #3, then holding it up to the window to line up and tape down the die, then die cutting. Other than that, this card was so quick to knock out!
