Freebie Project Life Cards

Hi guys! If you follow me over on Instagram you may have noticed that I'm in the midst of a year-long lettering challenge and I know that it is taking some of my attention away from scrapbooking lately so I wanted to share the love in the form of a freebie! I've prepped a printable pdf for you to download with three of my favorite pieces from my challenge thus far! You'll get (2) 3" x 4" cards and (1) 4" x 6" card in this download! I hope you enjoy and if you use them in a project, I'd love for you to share them with the #thepapercurator!

#FromWhereIStand Mini Album

Hey guys! If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw that I had a blog post over on Little Lamm & Co where I used her fabulous templates to start a new mini album for myself and I'm calling it the "#FromWhereIStand Mini". I'm simply taking all of my standing pictures from throughout the year and grouping them into a mini album. It's been really fun so far to see the change in shoes and outfits, where I've been and what I've stood on. I can't wait to continue it so this week I'm sharing my take with some Kellie Stamps Digital stamps from the 'Rad''Coffee', and 'AM to PM' stamp sets, a card from the 'You Got This' card set by Push Print Studio as well as some of my own hand lettering. Let's get to it!

SUNDAY SKETCH SERIES NO. 22

THIS WEEK'S SKETCH

THIS WEEK I'M GIVING YOU AN PRETTY SIMPLE LAYOUT WITH A LOT OF PUNCH. THAT'S BECAUSE IT FOCUSES ON HAND-LETTERING (SUPER PUNCHY IN METALLICS!), AN OVERSIZED IMAGE, AND SOME FLORALS FOR A FUN SPRING IMPACT. IT'S AN 8 1/2" X 11" PAGE WITH A 6" SQUARE PICTURE AND A TITLE FLAG BELOW. IT'S FINALLY FULL BLOWN SPRING HERE SO I LOVED THIS IMAGE OF MY NEPHEW WHEN HE FIRST LEARNED HOW TO SMELL FLOWERS AND WENT A LITTLE OVERBOARD! I MADE THE IMAGE BLACK AND WHITE SO IT COMPLIMENTS THE REST OF THE PAGE NICELY. KEEP SCROLLING TO SEE HOW I TURN THIS SKETCH INTO FULL BLOWN LAYOUT! KEEP READING >>>
