It’s week 7, which means I’m nearly 2 months in on this Story 52 journey thing – Woohoo! While some weeks are proving to be more difficult creatively than others, I can’t believe I’m still being consistent! Whew!
My Story 52 Week 7 thought process:
One glance at my cards left me feeling pretty confident this week…
- This is Us.
- Date & Time.
- Make it Big.
I probably should’ve jumped on getting things started with my page earlier in the week, but as usual, I did some procrastinating. Who knew my week would go a little topsy-turvy? …But it did – No biggie.
This week, unlike weeks past, I didn’t really labor over my thought process. I knew I needed to start with a technique – EASY. So, I decided on doing a Cricut Overlay and then went browsing Pinterest for some page ideas.
I ended up settling on a heart overlay by BlueStarDesigns. I then chose some pretty Close To My Heart papers from different collections while making sure the color scheme coordinated. Then, as I started assembling everything I realized that the overlay was my ‘make it BIG’ item. So, I decided to do some scissor distressing as my ‘technique’. Since I didn’t really have any cards that told me I needed to journal, I basically did a fist pump and wrote out the date/time as described in card #3. …Well, more like the date and not the time but whatever. lol
Here is my finished page for this week…
I’m the first to admit that my handwriting is terrible, so I may go back and redo that. But otherwise I’m happy (enough) with how the page turned out. Plus, considering everything that happened this week, I was able to squeak this page in under the wire.
- Cardstock Colors:
- Pretty Papers from packs…
- Cinnamon Ink Pad
- Paper Trimmer
- Sponge Daubers
- 3D Foam Dots
