Last Sunday Adrian and I went to IKEA. Now, this store, this lovely wonderful store is my favorite! I just love to go there. It’s always like a little adventure. This time I god a chopping board, some blue fabric for fall/winter pillows, place mats and CANDLES! I think I could go without electric lights for at least 2 years heeee
Anyways, I’m telling this because it kinda has something to do with this Crate Project. Our little 5 year plan (what a silly thing, right?? I know I know…) Every time we go to IKEA, not only I see super cute kids or pregnant ladies walking the aisles, but also I (or better WE) get that feeling of starting a family with actual human kiddos
Enough brabbling.. Here’s the project, using numbers! Here’s the original blog post over on CP.
This is one of the (spare) pictures of our fun Oregon Road Trip from last month. We were driving down next to the coast and found a camping site right after we passed Tillamook. I liked this shot because 1. it’s different and I like different. 2. because of the shell and 3. because of the little holes in the sand (I guess from some type of clam or some other little animal…. I’m not a biologist )
Happy Sunday! It’s already the middle of September and I for sure love to re-live my favorite summer memories by scrapbooking them. Today’s theme is ‘vacation’ and I hope you find lots of inspo from the girls
We did not go on vacation this year. We decided to stay at home and enjoy our garden. Although most of the summer has been rather rainy, we had some lovely hot and sunny days – felt like vacation!
Vacation for our family is simple. We love staying at home but this doesn’t mean we don’t do anything. This summer we went on lots of walks and we had fun playing around haystacks. Just enjoying simple things.I love using the little text stamps to add some journalling. I enjoy looking at layouts where you have to look closer at a page to see little details and the little text stamps do just that: they make look a little closer.
This is my first ever layout without a photo. And I must say I enjoyed having the stamps be the focal point and not worry about it being too “loud” against a photo. So I went all out with my neon embossing powders and made this bright and vivid layout about staying home the entire summer. The detail in the globes from the ‘World traveler’ stamp set is to die for! I’m thrilled to have it smack in the middle of a layout in all it’s wasabi coloured glory. Hah. Hope you like it!
I made this little sweet card (totally my favorite!) using MME’s doily stamps and Memento’s Nautical Blue Ink. I’m truly in love with both! This color is one of my newest faves and I can’t get enough of it
Happy Sunday everyone! Ready to be inspired? Today we talk about the stamp set WORLD TRAVELER – look what the amazing SGD Girls have created using this stamp set
Save big on this stamp set – right now it’s only $9.99 for a limited time.
A few words from Lilith:
As a family we don’t travel far but we do go on loads of little day trips. One of our favourite outings is going for walks. We take the kids’ bikes and they just love riding and we follow. I snapped this picture on one of our walks. I love seeing them enjoy simple things.
Tip: When using a stamp load it once and then stamp several times with it. The stamp will loose ink and the image will be a little less crisp but it adds character and a different look to your layout/card.
A few words from Janna:
I adore the vintage touch of the World Traveler stamp set. I really like combining it with pastels!
A few words from Nina:
This layout is about a little gaming weekend we had at our place this summer. Or more specifically about my awesome little team of friends who attended. I grunged it up a bit with corrugated alphas, splatters and paint. The World Traveler number stamp made a great starting point for my journaling: My top 5 moments of the weekend. The weekdays and ‘escape’ sentiments were just perfect for this topic as well.
