Happy August, PEEPS!!
Can you believe the summer is going by SO quickly?
The weather has been wonderful but somedays the heat and humidity is crazy unbearable.
Thankfully my darling hubby found and installed the air conditioner this week.
It is sure to make August that much more pleasant!
I wanted to share a couple of new LOs from the new
but I just can't do it (yet). Luckily, the colors and patterns are still
fun to use on a non themed layout, and I have been meaning to do a page
about my Little Guy's love for ALL THINGS Wii/Mario related.
Supplies: Cardstock-Core'dinations & Bazzill,
Buttons-Great Canadian Dollar store
alphas-Basic Grey (blue & white), Cosmo CRicket (cream mini alphas)
I learned from Christine Middlecamp's blog that if an element is too big for your page,
it is OK to trim it and just use a portion. That way you will actually
USE your stash and not hoard it like I do. ;)
(The journalling tag was cut from 1 lg. tag)
This next LO is a new personal favorite. It is 8.5x11" and
I SO enjoyed how much quicker this LO came together
(and how much easier it will be for me to store).
This also uses the new Apple Cider Collection along with
a hodge podge of buttons and fibers from my stash.
I also used a NEW favorite 'GoTo' item-alphabet beads!
If you live in Canada and are near a Dollarama (the green store)
check it out, I got a bag of 300 characters for 1 buck!
I also got the kraft covered wire (see below) there!!
Supplies: Cardstock-Core'dinations, Paper-Imaginisce (Apple Cider)
Kraft wire, alpha beads-Dollarama
Alphas-Basic Grey, buttons & brads-from stash
