Today I wanted share with you my Project Life spread with you using the latest December - Rainbow Connection Pocket Life kit from the Scrappy Canary store.... This kit is SO FUN!!! i shared this yesterday over on their blog :)
Full of Heidi Swapp papers and teamed with the cutest Evalicious puffy stickers and many other little treasures!! The kit also came with a full packet of the Heidi Swapp color magic alphas...swoon....So I decided to use some of them just as is and coloured the others with my Colour Shine Inks.
To help keep the alphas in place I sewed through them . But just a tip.. wait till the alphas are fully dry as they become soft and a little weak when they are still damp and can move when sewn through. I found that out the hard way!! And I also noticed that the ink smears over the page and lifts off the alphas if they are not fully and completely dry..yikes..
Again I used all the 6 x6 papers to create all the background papers in my layout. I love doing that as it adds so much colour.
I also used my vintage typewriter for the first time to complete my Project Life spread and had fun figuring out how to use it. I learnt also this week to adhere the photos AFTER typing..lol.. I accidently ended up putting tiny marks in into one of the photos from trying to jam it through the typewriter roller..lol.. so lesson learnt.
Here are a few close up's for you to take a peek at.
As you can see underneath the LV 5 title is all a little askew as I did not wait till the thickers were totally dry and they moved as I tried to sew them down..
Dont forget if you would like a kit then make sure you head on over to HERE... The shop also has gorgeous add on kits that you can also add to these kits to get more milage out of them..
Till next time
