This week I was inspired to use Chalk Studio. The first time I flipped through the 6x6 paper pad, I knew I wanted to cut that frame paper up to use as a title card in my Project Life. Using the Sticker Accessory sheet, I was able to repeat the frame look and add in an additional pop of color by using the “Shine on” sticker and the floral Thrive Pattern Paper.
I was pleasantly surprised how nicely the date stamp worked with white ink. I guess I was used to having some issues with it when I was stamping larger images, but this time I loved the results. Unfortunately, my white pen had dried out since the last time I had used it, so I was unable to put in my “to” between the dates.
I had the vellum speech bubble with the felt heart sitting out on top of my desk from my last project I had been working on because the polka dot paper that backed it had ripped. I wasn’t about to toss it out, so I had it sitting there waiting for the next project to come along. I thought it was the perfect little embellishment to fill in one of the frames. I like it when mishaps turn out to be a good thing, don’t you?
The second half of the week had lots of pictures to include, so I kept with a quick little summary of what happened. I also carried across the blues and greens and continued the chalk look as well.
I am really in love with those Tiny Word Stickers. I decided to use the days of the weeks to label the pictures. When I am doing this, I actually just stick it to the top of my page protectors. That way I get to embellish it a touch, but I can still pull the picture out to reuse it if I ever need to. Sometimes one of my kids will need a picture for school or a project, so this album is where I will turn if I can’t get them printed in time.
This was actually my first time playing with the trendy chalk look! Yes, I am behind the times, but I really loved it. Have you played with it lately? Please share if you have! Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you have a fabulous Tuesday!
