Making with April's Release

Shop Update

When I get on a roll with crafting, I wonder why I ever took a break in the first place. I think the breaks can be useful, but I'm definitely enjoying all of the creating that's been going on lately.

I do have a couple of ideas planned for today's new kit, Time of Day, but I work chronologically so I haven't had a chance to put them into action. I have used the In the Kitchen and Delivery Please stamps and know they'll be used again and again.

For much longer than I care to admit, I moved these 5 elements around and around my page. Then I had a "eureka" moment by taking inspiration from Susan and used vellum to soften the card and everything fell into place.

The checklist stamp is from the Time of Day kit and the ones stamped on the pink grid paper are from Delivery Please and In the Kitchen. For the checklists, I physically stamped the designs after printing the lists. I used the digital version to make sure everything was evenly spaced and then removed it. I could have printed it with the digitals, but I prefer getting inky.

I don't think it's a secret that I love using stamps and the way I'm constructing my 2021 album means I can stamp without worry. By creating my layouts single-sided, it's okay if ink bleeds through. And more importantly, if I make a mistake that can't be covered, I can start over. For me, it takes pressure off and I find myself happier and creating pages faster. (I don't have the just-go-for-it attitude to stamp boldly like Heba!)

Using the latest In a Creative Bubble set, In the Kitchen, I got to embellish a tasty meal made at home as well as use the "perfection." design for cozy time with our cats. I also used Dots and Spots, Apollo Lower Alphabet, and the sweet book is from the Me Right Now set.

Thanks for taking a look at what I've been making and I hope you'll share with us on Instagram–we'd love to see!
