TCW228: Herringbone Stencil
Art Journal Every Day: A Place to Experiment

Late Night Scrapbooking

I've been in work, work, work mode lately.  Late last night I decided that it was time to sit down and scrapbook just for fun.  I grabbed my August Cocoa Daisy kit and got to work with a favorite photo from Chicago.  Here's what I came up with:

I love that I managed to fit so much journaling in!  One of the most wonderful parts of not being part of any design teams is that I no longer have to think about showing off product.  So I feel like I can just tell my stories and scrap the way I want to. 

The only things I ended up using from the Cocoa Daisy kit are the patterned paper and the stickers.  I always clean my needle after stitching through stickers, because the adhesive gunks it up.

Those fabulous yellow letters are from my stash, and I used the Balzer Designs "wonky circles" stencil in 6x6 to create the background.

These little tags are one of my favorite parts of this layout.  I'm kind of tiny tag obsessed as of late.  I love using them to make little embellishments for my page.

So there you go.  A couple hours of "me" time with a very happy result!

Thanks for stopping by!
