Kinnari with Pinkfresh Studio contacted me recently asking if I would use her products in my Project Life spreads. She was so generous in what she sent. I started thinking of the colors I wanted to use most in each week's Project Life.
Both weeks show a transition from Summer to Fall. And where I live is mostly hot and very little Fall...but it's there, just have to look harder.
I pulled in more of the brighter, neon colors mixed in with warmer colors.
My favorite technique on both this week's spread and week 38 is the washi tape on cardstock with the Lawn Fawn leaves die cuts with my Big Shot. I think the colors and leaves represent the change in season well.
Week 38, I pulled in more neutral colors and lots of accents with black.
It's subtle, but the "week" and the black arrow are with the Studio Calico letterpress supplies. The white did not show up as much as I thought. But I do need more practice. Still love it.
I really wanted to highlight Pinkfresh Studio's products, but I did use a mix of This Life Noted Scraptastic kits and Studio Calico Project Life kits.
Favorite technique on this spread besides the letterpress accents, is again using the washi tape adhered to cardstock and then running it through the Big Shot with the leaf dies. But, the new technique is just stamping on the washi. I used chalk ink and then the heat gun to seat it, and then typed on the typewriter my journaling. Love, love the effect of it. That's the new Lawn Fawn stamp as well.
On the two top pockets of this side, I used the new American Crafts Halloween line found exclusively at Target. I really wanted to show more of the transition of going into Fall and the little activities. The line works so well for non-Halloween and was the right touch.
One other technique I did on both of these spreads, was use the Lawn Fawn stitched card die cut. I had been wanting to use it, and love the look it gives. For pre-made cards or photos that were already the size of the pocket, I added a touch of washi tape onto the die, the card and/or photo onto cardstock and sent through the Big Shot. Came out perfectly. Adds the rounds corners but my favorite is the stitched look around the card and/or photo.
