this next one uses up a big chunk of that KI calendar paper i've been preaching about. i cut the bracket border off to save for a later page...i am seriously in LOVE with this paper (and at 99cents for STITCHED, DOUBLE-SIDED paper, i WILL get more). used the awesomely awesome Days of the Week stamps along the side (colored in with some paints using a fine brush from this set), and stamped again with the globe stamp (this time with the JBS Malted Milk ink) to highlight what a crazy week in our girl's life is like right now. for fun, i had her sign the bottom...and i used one of the Paddington tags to represent her age. don't be afraid to cut up those crazy cool squigglies from the KI stickers...i did here, and it turned out kind of fun! i also discovered how cool the American Crafts Mix Tape is...used as 'tape' and for kicks, i stuck a long piece onto cardstock and then punched a border out with it!
next? a Halloween layout. that's right...HALLOWEEN, lol. (told you this was versatile!)
as mentioned, i don't usually wander into holiday layouts...but this one was fun to put together. brought out my Months of the Year stamps (yes they are a perfect match to the Days of theWeek!) + the Jett Numbers Stamp Set...and grabbed bits that were laying arond my desk, including one of the flaps from a red Making Memories envelope. ($4 for 40 of these = CHEAP!)
lastly, this one here...again, made with bits of loveliness on my desk that i couldn't bare to throw away. i punched the Paddington Tags with my Postage Stamp punch, as the size of the original
tags was a bit too much for this page.
