Finally Friday: Thinking of You

Hey Peas! Excited to share today's Finally Friday card with you! I wanted to create something a little different and I used my Silhouette machine to cut out a card with a window flap. If you don't have a silhouette you can use an exacto knife or a paper trimmer to create a similar look :) 

I used one of my new favorite stamps which is a background stamp by Hero Arts in wood grain, and used clear embossing powder on it. 

Then I used paper and buttons by October Afternoon, finished with a sentiment sticker by Doodlebug. I LOVE their sentiment stickers, just perfect for cardmaking

My challenge for you today is to make an interactive card, with a window, or flap.

cha-w 2012 : what I love for Project Life

Hi Peas! This is Lisa Truesdell, and while I was walking through CHA last week, I kept an eye out for product that would be a good fit for my Project Life album. In almost every booth, I found new goodies that will be perfect for my book, and I can't wait to get my hands on them and start using them! These items will be showing up in the shop in the coming weeks - ship dates vary by manufacturer.


I can.not.WAIT to get this stamp from Dear Lizzy. It's similar to my often used Smash date stamp, but I love the phrases even more. I will be stalking the store for this stamp and clicking BUY as soon as it comes in.

These Lily Bee cards are sized perfectly for the project life page protectors, and I love the small scale of their alphabets. They have these with each of their new lines.

I am a BIG fan of washi tape for Project Life. It's a super fast way to add a little color and it's perfect for holding photos and keepsakes in place. Luckily, there was no shortage of it at this show. My favorites are the sets were from Hambly (love the labels and cameras) and Smash (more labels and I love the mixed pattern roll).

October Afternoon always has a great range of Project Life friendly embellishments. Their diecut shapes, Miscellany packs and stickers are all fun ways to bring in color and pattern without a lot of bulk. They also jumped on the washi train at this show - I can see myself using a LOT of OA in my album this year!

Hambly had a couple of new products that I'm excited to play with - overlays with labels and journaling cards. These will be so fun to layer!!

Stamps are one of my favorite ways to dress up plain journaling cards, and there were awesome sets all of the show. In addition to these stamps from 7gypsies (top) and Studio Calico (bottom), there were good basic designs + sentiments from Dear Lizzy, Amy Tangerine, & Lily Bee - I know there were many more, but I'm drawing a blank at the moment.

Jenni Bowlin's booth was filled with stickers and tags that will be perfect for Project Life. I loved these mixed sticker sheets - SO many options. She also had stickers in a cool hex pattern, and awesome vintage look tags.

Studio Calico was another company that had a lot of embellishments that will work well in my album. From cool stickers to stitched tags to envelopes & their veneer - all awesome basics done in a very cool way.

I think I'm MOST excited about these photo frames from Heidi Swapp. They fold over your photo for a polaroid look, and come with cool label and phrase stickers that you can use to embellish them. Such a fun idea!

Once I get all of these cool new products into my Project Life weeks, I'm going to need somewhere to put it all. And what would be more perfect than this camera patterned album from Amy Tangerine? I'm planning on grabbing two to hold my PL 2012.

I feel like I'm barely scratching the surface -  there was product in every booth that I can't wait to use in this year's album - but I hope you'll go out and look at new releases and find your own favorites for your Porject Life. I'll be sharing how I use most of these items in my free class here at 2peas, 2012 : captured - I hope you'll stop by and see how I work them in!
