today, i saw the sketch at Paper Issues for their Sketchy Saturday feature, and that sealed the deal. WOOT! mojo spotted! i had the elements, everything was ready, but the placement just needed a push. tweaked it, adhered away, and i am FINALLY happy with this flippin' page.
the majority of the elements are from Pretty Little Studio - all of the papers, the folder tabs, the number stickers and the year die-cuts (i just altered them with ink and mist to make them work for my page)... the star flair is from Toni From Designs, the "hello" die is from Lawn Fawn (the "love" die is a new fave of mine, but they keep selling out!), some orange Thickers, and i believe the arrows are from Studio Calico.
have i mentioned how much i love my Dymo label makers? seriously. coloured tapes. different fonts. subtle. old school perfection.
and here's the awesome Paper Issues sketch that helped me bring it all together, once and for all:
WHEW. i am so relieved - i was really beginning to wonder if it might be time to start packing up the crafties and throwing in the towel altogether. but nope. now i want to use the card sketch to make a commissioned card for a co-worker. yep, i'm feeling INSPIRED. and it's about freaking time.
how you doin'?
