First up a card using the colours from the current ColourQ challenge. Since they were so pink I decided to make new baby girl card to complement the baby boy card from the other week. I did intend simply to do a pink version of the blue card, seen here, but in the end it looked completely different.
I stamped the congratulations panel in pale pink first and built the other panels around it. Somehow the pale colour meant the sentiment was getting lost, so I tried the darker pink on a piece of scrap, which I luked much more. Then I wondered what it would look like with the pale pink stamped slightly to one side, a sort of shadow effect and I liked that even more. So that's what I went with.
Stamp: Uniko Studio, All Occasion Sentiments #1
Ink: Memento, angel pink, rose bud
Embossing: Cuttlebug, swiss dots & baby pram
Next I want to share my envelope calendar I made ages ago for 2014. My idea was that I would be able to store photos and memorabilia in each pocket as the year progresses. I chose my favourite Tilda stamp for the cover and aqua, lemon and kraft as a peaceful colour combo. I think these colours come a close second to my favourite purples and pinks.
And here's a peek inside:
So throughout January I've added a couple of receipts and my first ever attempt at crochet - more about this in coming weeks. I chose a photo and added a favourite quote and then decided it just had to have a little journalling so I made a card and added a few key things about this month.
So here's my January pocket and a closer look at some of its contents.
Thanks for dropping by today, hope you've enjoyed reading about what I've been up to!
