But this is my happy place, so enough about that for now. If next Wednesday you have a moment, keep your fingers crossed for me:)
Point is, I haven't had any time for scrapbooking, but might have stolen some moments to do some shopping.
I bought some super cute washi on Etsy at this store. It arrived pretty fast from Hong Kong, and I also got a gift washi roll (cute orange yellow polka dot with pink hearts) and some cute stickers (shown in the pic)! If you like washi check out that store, I might have already seen a few more favorites...
I don't do Project Life. Or so I thought, until I saw the new kits. I guess what I mean is that I don't do traditional PL. I really like pretty much all the kits, but they are sooo huge, that I didn't want to just buy one without being sure I could use it. And then a special project arrived. My mom gave me a bunch of pictures from pretty much the last 60 years. I didn't know how to approach this, and somehow felt that I didn't want to do my regular 12*12 pages. My supplies are completely not right for those old style papers, and mostly I wanted to get it in an album, and have room to add as much journaling as needed.
Hello Cinnamon edition.
Of all the core kits, I think it's the furthest one from my usual style and taste. It's warm, romantic, nostalgic, with subdued hues. Which made it perfect for the photos I had.
I was also pleasantly surprised to see that it had a lot of modern elements, that worked well with more current photos. Here's a few shots of the kit:
Now take a look how well it works with older photos (that baby might be me:))-
If you have old photos, the Cinnamon core kit is a great option. You can find a picture of the different cards here, at Kerri Bradford's (who designed the kit) web page.
If like me, you have lots of odd-sized pictures, I suggest buying the extra 4*6 cards.
And for myself I bought the midnight kit. Because it's amazing, and timeless. I'm in love.
Have a great weekend!
