Project - A Glimpse of Our Home
posted 09/22/11 at 05:15 PM
Journaling says: Our first few nights of marriage after we got back from our honeymoon were spent in the Warner's basement until we finished moving in to our very first apartment in good ol' Provo, UT. We spent just over two happy and love-filled years there. We've been living in South Pasadena for just over two years now and we love it. “Home” is wherever Chris and Fox are!
Notes: The challenge on the Studio Calico blog for the week of 9.19 - 9.26 is to use Polaroid pictures. I haven't used my Polaroid for a couple years so I wasn't surprised when the pictures I snapped came out super wonky. But, wonky and vintage is “in” so I went with it! I took pictures of the innards and my favorite parts of our second apartment to scrap.
How to: Stitch cream/ledger/scalloped paper to a dark kraft cardstock background using grey thread. Adhere four Polaroids to the middle. Assemble two “foldies” and adhere them above and below the pictures. Tear a “fabrips” from the parent sheet, notch the ends, then scrunch it between the photos. Add the title with an assortment of letter/alphabet stickers and frame it with brackets and a journaling spot die cut cut in half. Write journaling with a black pen around the edges. Type a caption on a label sticker and attach it with a fabric brad to the bottom right corner. Place a trio of pearls on the top left and bottom right corners. All done!
