oh, roller rink. you've found your way into my top five. perfect neutrals. woodgrain. those enamel dots. ledger washi. asterisk stamps. oh, yes. and to make this month even better? roller rink and all four add-ons are still available. if i had to play favorites with the add-ons, i'd go for rainbow kneesocks. i have another project planned with that add-on, hopefully i can make that happen and share it soon!
here's a look at what i made this month. i also did a PL week with the card kit, but i'll share that in a seperate post.
hummel day camp : the colors in roller rink made me think of my kids' day camp this summer. while i didn't have any pics from their days there, i did have one of the whole group + counselors at parents' night.
i built my page on a piece of the tim and beck patterned paper, using the divisions withing the design as a guide for where to place elements. the exclusive ledger washi tape was exactly the right height to fit in one of the "blocks" in the paper, and i love how it adds a perfect area for journaling. i've been asked a few times about the pen i used on the tape - i use a staedtler lumocolor for all of my journaling. love that this pen can handle surfaces like the tape and photos!

new : a new school year tends to bring so many other new things.. i wanted to get them all onto one page. i used a posed first day of school photo paired with instagrams taking on the first day and while school shopping to help round out the story.
i'll be honest - i really want to switch out the background on this one for a simple ledger. LOVE the love paper, but it's a bit too busy for me! i'm glad i tried it - gotta shake things up now and then. =) i kept the design of the page fairly simple. i added a few layered tabs and labels alongside two of my photos, and used some layered diecut frames to house the title.
15 years : i pretty much loved this silhouette cut, and thought it was perfect for an anniversary page. =) i backed it with the ledger washi, then layered a button, banner and sequins over the flower. the photo of us together was taken on a trip to kansas city from this spring.
you : oh, this boy. he lives big. and i love it. =)
when we were working on kits this summer, i told april that i really wanted a "be awesome" stamp. so i was thrilled to get my hands on it and ink it up!!! it's a bit hard to see in the pics, but i misted with mister huey's shine and the starburst mask on the background. the little embellies are grouped along the lined of the burst. i used a lot of neutrals + the b&w photos, so i'm loving the energy that the little pops of color add!
as always, please ask away if you have any questions about how i made these. =)
happy saturday! we're off to start the weekend by helping clean up the grounds of our elementary school. then library, archery and watching a football game. pinterest has convinced me that i need to make cake batter milkshakes, so i'm hoping that will happen, too. ;)
