So Not Fishing

I'm back to Project Life or Project 365 with a two page layout for the 2 weeks in June I was NOT fishing.  My husband was fishing, visiting family, and looking after his grandson - sometimes all at once.  I had a blissful two weeks of complete peace, quiet, clean floors, less cooking and little laundry!  (I missed him...I really did.)

While I was home most of the time, I did get out some most every day.  Sometimes it was just for a walk or a quick trip to the grocery store.  I also had several visits with friends and family.  I took in the local farmer's market.  Here at home, I did some extra cleaning, reorganized all my stamping up ink and papers, and did lots of projects many still to come on the blog.

For this layout, I started with 2 sheets of white cardstock which seemed so simple.  In the video, you find out at the end that this almost turned into a disaster.  I typically use either Hobby Lobby brand or Stampin' Up! cardstock.  This was Bazzill and had a branding strip.  Does your cardstock have a branding strip?  Anyway, I learned a very important lesson about measuring.

The female figure is from a stencil also from Hobby Lobby that I got on the clearance rack for 64 cents!  I love how she turned out.  She is paired with another stamp and some wood veneer I got at Archivers on my recent trip east.

Paper triangles are from the 6x6 Paper pad from Amy Tan's Ready Set Go.  The colors were perfect for the photos and were very bright.  To soften the page some, I also used the brayer and Stampin' Up!'s Baja Breeze ink - my favorite.  This was my favorite part of the page.

All the wood veneer pieces from the Carte Postale collection by Basic Grey.  These little frames are perfect for the 2" square photos.

Here's the video at YouTube

And here is the sketch:

  1. I love this page design! Fun page and a fun title!

  2. Your layout turned out beautiful! Love your .64cent find at HL!

  3. Lisa, I love the kind of sunray effect in both corners. I'll be looking for a way to scrap-lift this design very soon! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Your two page spread is awesome.
    I really like how you used that sketch.
    My SIL always forgets to cut that strip off, so frustrating after the whole layout is done :(
    Hubby only goes fishing when we are at the cottage. I have never had the house to myself for a weekend...ever!
    Yes I am envious ;)

  5. Love what you did with the sketch; the sunbursts and the inking, in particular, are fantastic. I have run into the branding strip issue; Coredinations cardstock uses them, too.
