A new sketch went live at Pencil Lines yesterday. Here's the sketch:
Notice how I used red very strategically in this layout: the button, the title, the flash card, and the sticker behind the focal photo. The red draws the viewer’s eye around the layout and keeps things from being too monochromatic. Also, the stick pin acts as an arrow pointing towards the focal photo.
Confession time: The journaling was done with my brand *new* cursive typewriter. Yep, it's true. Crammed into this little New York apartment are now two typewriters! How ridiculous am I? And yet I couldn't stop myself from buying the cursive one. I tried to talk myself out of it. I looked for a font that looked like a cursive typewriter. But I didn't see one. So now I own two typewriters. It's a sickness, I tell you!
And speaking of retail therapy...I couldn't stop myself from buying this adorable stamp set:
The stamps are super cute (especially the taxi cab), but I'm kind of giggly happy about the little fabric bag. I feel like I might have to find a place that sells adorable mini linen bags and decorate a few! Is it wrong to buy something because the packaging is the cutest thing you've ever seen in your whole life?
I almost walked out with this set too...
I'm always looking for a milk can stamp, but I've never seen them before. Barbara, at The Ink Pad, was kind enough to order one for me! Speaking of The Ink Pad, I'm going to be teaching two classes there in the next few months. I'll post more once I've gotten everything straightened out.
Finally, I'm working on some super secret projects for Scrapbook Memories TV this week. We're going to be taping the next season at the end of the month, so it's all about coming up with some fun ideas and then creating all the step-outs and instructions and all of that fun stuff!
Thanks for stopping by!
