BECAUSE IT'S FOR SUMMER, I LOVE THE IDEA OF USING STARS (IN KEEPING WITH FOURTH OF JULY ETC), SO I CUSTOMIZED A LITTLE STAPLEBOUND JOURNAL USING THIS DIY TO PRINT THE STAR PATTERN FROM LOVE | DAY | SEED ONTO FABRIC AND COVER MY JOURNAL. BE SURE TO CHECK THAT TUTORIAL OUT IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY!

THESE ARE THE TOOLS I USE EACH AND EVERY TIME I SCRAP - WELL, BASICALLY! IT'S MY FAVORITE SUPER SHARP SCISSORS, AND THEY'RE GOLD - YOU JUST CAN'T GO WRONG WITH GOLD!, THE TIM HOLTZ TINY ATTACHER (WITH GOLD STAPLES - NEED I SAY MORE), THE PROJECT LIFE DATE STAMP, AND THE TOMBOW PERMANENT ADHESIVE ROLLER. THESE ARE MY GO TO STAPLE ITEMS EVERY TIME I CRAFT SO I JUST HAD TO INCLUDE THEM!

 

 

 

 


03. THE INK

I REALLY WANT TO USE A LOT OF STAMPING THROUGHOUT THIS JOURNAL AS A WAY TO PUSH MYSELF AND USE TECHNIQUES I USUALLY SHY AWAY FROM! THE THREE INKS I'LL BE USING THE MOST (MY HOLY GRAIL) ARE THE BRILLIANCE MOONLIGHT WHITE (FOR STAMPING ON DARK IMAGES), THE STAZ ON JET BLACK FOR EVERYTHING ELSE, AND THE STUDIO CALICO GOLD INK FOR A LITTLE ADDED GLITZ! I'LL OCCASIONALLY STAMP WITH THE COLOR BOX PETAL POINTS AND THEY'RE MY GO TO FOR COLOR STAMPING BUT I THINK I'M GOING TO STICK TO NEUTRALS FOR THIS ALBUM!

 

 


04. THE STAMPS

I'M DYING TO USE ALL THE WONDERFUL STAMPS I'VE BEEN HOARDING FROM KELLIE STAMPS AND MY VARIOUS STUDIO CALICO PURCHASES AND SUBSCRIPTION, SO I PULLED A FEW TO USE CONSISTENTLY THROUGHOUT THIS MINI. THEY'RE ALL PERFECT FOR DOCUMENTING THE EVERY DAY AND I CAN'T WAIT TO PUT THEM TO WORK!


05. THE STARS

AS I MENTIONED IN MY ALBUM SECTION - I AM LOVING STARS FOR THE SUMMER SO I'VE SET ASIDE A FEW OF MY FAVORITES FOR THIS ALBUM. I'LL BE USING  CHIPBOARD, GLITTER, RUB-ONS, WOOD VENEER, + SEQUINS! - OH MY! THEY'RE ALL JUST SO WONDERFUL.

WHEN I GOT THIS JUMBO ALPHA IN THE STUDIO CALICO CAROUSEL ADD ON, I KNEW THE COLORS WERE PERFECT FOR THIS ALBUM - BRIGHT AND BOLD! I CAN'T WAIT TO USE THIS ALPHA THROUGHOUT THE ALBUM

 

07. THE WASHI

I DON'T USE WASHI THAT OFTEN BUT AS I MENTIONED IN THIS POST, IT'S A GREAT WAY TO ADD IN EXTRA PAGES TO A STAPLEBOUND BOOK SO I'VE SELECTED A FEW I THINK WILL GEL NICELY WITH THE REST OF MY ALBUM AND YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH SOME NICE WORDS, A LITTLE CALENDAR AND SOME SHINY GOLD!


08. THE ALPHA PT. TWO

WELL, WHO DOESN'T NEED MORE THAN ONE ALPHA RIGHT? AND I JUST DIE OVER THESE ACRYLIC LETTERS FROM COLOR CAST DESIGNS SO I'LL BE SPRINKLING THEM THROUGHOUT THE ALBUM AS WELL!

 

09. THE GEOTAGS

THE BEST PART OF SUMMER IS TRAVELLING, EXPLORING, AND TRYING NEW THINGS, AND I LOVE THROWING GEOTAGS IN MY ALBUMS TO HELP TELL A LITTLE STORY OF WHERE I WAS SO I'VE GRABBED SOME STUDIO CALICO GEOTAGS IN AN ASSORTMENT OF COLORS AND SIZES AND I'LL BE PUTTING THOSE TO WORK TOO!

AS I MENTIONED HERE  THERE'S GOING TO BE A LARGE FOCUS IN THIS ALBUM ON HAND JOURNALING AND UTILIZING MY OWN HANDWRITING TO FILL THE MINI WITH PERSONALITY. TO DO THIS I'M GOING TO USE SOME OF MY FAVORITE PENS! - THE MICRON, THE METALLIC GOLD SHARPIE, AND THE PROJECT LIFE PEN. THESE ARE ALL GREAT TO ADD A LITTLE BIT OF HANDIWORK TO YOUR ALBUM.

 

 

 


11. THE PAINT

BECAUSE I'M UTILIZING A REGULAR NOTEBOOK WITH LINES, I'LL PROBABLY GET A LITTLE ARTSY WITH IT AND APPLY PAINT OVER SOME OF THE PAGES, PLUS I ENJOY A MIXED MEDIA FEEL ANYWAYS. FOR THIS - MY GO TO PAINT IS THE LIQUITEX HEAVY BODY PAINT IN TITANIUM WHITE.

 

 

 
 

12. THE EXTRAS

WE ALL KNOW I CAN'T FINISH A MINI WITHOUT SOME EXTRA SPECIAL EMBELLISHMENTS! THEREFORE I'M USING AN ASSORTMENT OF STUDIO CALICO EMBELLISHMENTS FROM PAST KITS, ONLINE, AND MY STASH TO KEEP THIS ALBUM FUN, BRIGHT, AND INTERESTING!
