Hey friends! Been super slack lately but March is always crazy for us. Work always picks up, then we have Zack's birthday, change of sports for Zack and it's just gogogogogo. I'm looking forward to a little slower pace come April ;)
I have been creating though; just not having much time to photograph/edit/upload them. But I did get this one done so I figured I'd pop here and share before I get distracted by something else I need to get done, haha.
I set myself a challenge when creating this one - don't use white cardstock for my background. And I did it! Ok, so maybe I went with the most neutral pattern but...no white cardstock in sight! WIN!
The rose gold featured throughout Lovely Day is so gorgeous in person! I love the shine it adds to the page. It's tricky to photograph however lol.
This page actually started with the flags. I've been hoarding them and that has to stop! They're so cute and add a great dimension to the page. Plus...rose gold!!!
The title was originally just gong to be "love" but then those thickers have more rose gold on them so naturally they made their way onto the page. I positioned the "u" on the bottom of the flag which meant I had to add foam dots behind the "y" and "o" too (so they were the same depth).
The bunny has absolutely nothing to do with the theme of the page, but it's cute AND has rose gold on it. You picking up on my love of the rose gold yet?
All the colours and elements of Lovely Day are just so yummy. Everything works so well together and it's such a breeze to create with.
And if you love rose gold like me, well, you're gonna be in heaven. Pops of it everyyyywhhhere. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Hope your March is being a little kinder to you; sorry I've been so absent around here and I'd like to say I'll be more consistent but....well...you know me ;) Thank you so much for stopping by though, I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by this space! Take care, Em xo
Just stopping by very quickly to share that I'm up on the Dear Lizzy blog today sharing the first page I created using LOVELY DAY! Lovely Day is sooooooooooo LOVELY! Haha. Sorry couldn't help myself. It truly is though!
Hope you'll stop by to check it out! Click photo below to go straight there ;)
I'm in this zone of making easy DIY projects. You know, things like this!
My own photo organiser file thingy! Wohoo!
I found the DIY for making this from Damask Love. Technically she called it a "Stationary Organizer" but I'm totally just using it to organise my photo's. I'm not going to bother showing you how it's made because she already has the best DIY instructions here. (You need to check it out...although while you are there, you should check everything out, she's absolutely awesome and has some of the best DIY's!)
I print all my photo's at home and I am forever printing more photo's than I need. I often print my photo's as I make a layout but I'll always print 2-4 each time because I'm hopless...and also because I print small photo's so I can fit more than 1 image per 6x4 print. So technically it's actually a smart idea; although I seem to have alot of photos' floating about that I've yet to use..which means it's not really effective...but I digress! So I had been throwing all the extra photo's in a little box but they get all mixed up. With this little organiser they are sorted and it makes my geeky-heart happy.
Because I'll be sitting this on the desk (idea being that if it's within reach I'll actually use some of the dozens of photo's I've already printed) I wanted to go with something neutral. I picked the fun black & white house patterned paper for the outside.
I'd like to say I added the blue flower paper on the inside "for contrast" but to be honest it's there to cover the cardboard, ha! I used one sheet of 12x12 to cover both sides and it wasn't quite wide enough to fold over and cover the visible sections of the cardboard on the inside. Mistake or not, I like it anyway ;)
I printed the "categories" on white cardstock (I went with the obvious ones: Zack, Me, Family, Friends, Makayla and Pets/Misc) and then just used a tab punch to cut them out. I adhered the tabs to the back of each divider using double-sided tape. Simple pimple.
And there you go.... An easy little DIY photo organiser for my desk! I'd like to show a photo of it on the desk but it's night and the lighting isn't so great (and I'm too impatient to hold off on posting this until tomorrow). I might pop back later and edit this to add a photo in. Or I might not because I'm old and forget things easily ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Take care, Em xo
