Project Life 2013 - Week 35
To make the title card, I took one of the first printables that I made and cut it down a bit. I used a 1/8 inch hole punch to punch along the edge in a straight line, then stuck a metal dry embossing tool in the hole and pulled outward to replicate the look of torn notebook paper.
I found the quote on Pinterest, and the weather card is an iPhone app called Swackett.
I had a lot of photos this week, so I actually had to do a mini insert! I used a Martha Stewart/Avery mini sheet protector for these. It was a little tricky because the dimensions are different than the 3" x 4" cards I'm used to making. As a result, I had to go back and re-trim some of them after I was done making them so they would fit! Duh.
I discovered after the fact that the quote I printed to use on this side of the insert had already been used earlier this year. WHOOPS! Luckily I had this one already printed and in my little basket of cards.
This is the right side of the week. I used a circle punch to cut out the logo of the Chinese restaurant from their business card. The quote card was cut from a piece of card stock that was in a bag of assorted scraps and stickers that I bought at my local scrapbook store's "yard sale."
I accidentally made the yellow Costco card too wide for the space. I guess I was having measurement issues this week! Luckily because I don't use pockets I didn't have to go back and redo the whole thing. I just adjusted the size of the card next to it. It's just a cut down photo, so it was pretty easy. So, there's another advantage to doing Project Life the way I do it!
Another week down... I will get caught up!
