Hi all! Sharing more pages from my From Here to There album today for Get Messy. I definitely think that these are the last few pages from this album (only 3 left). I can feel the energy for this project waning.
Here is my first spread. Being completely engrossed in unpacking, it’s quite simple.
I discovered a Michael’s store close to my new place (oh joy!) and came across these Me and My Big Ideas stickers. They are just perfect!
The facing page is a Handbook page protector. I added the wood veneer to compliment the little flag on the previous page. Other than that, I didn’t modify the cards.
The next pages have a similar color scheme. I tried to keep things muted which is a departure for me!
On the left, some quote cards and a house with the wood banner.
This is probably my favorite stamp ever.
On the right side, since I’m on a pie chart roll :)… I decided to use the Studio Calico stamp set I got recently. I just wanted to document some of the ups and downs of our move into this house, without the need to go into too much detail. That’s why pie charts rock!
I really love using my scraps. Here I used a piece of patterned paper that I had already punched out hearts from. I love the layering with the vellum and pretty gold patterns from the other piece peeking through.
Just as I felt I was losing speed with this project, I had an idea and it came out pretty close to how I imagined it.
This was from some brush script pratice I did last week (you may have seen this on IG). I also shared a little tip for using leftover book covering plastic…
…just put some sequins under there!
For the right side, I wanted to showcase little things about making this house our home that make us happy. All of us, not just me. So I cut out some squares in happy, pretty paper and started embellishing.
Each square lifts up to reveal a tidbit or a story about what we love about being here.
I also embellished the underside of the squares, so this page was a stellar stashbuster! I put in one thing that each of us, including the kids, love about our new place.
Here they are, all lifted up.
And laying flat. I had a blast making this last page. At first, I was going to put a dashed line between the squares, but I think it may be busy enough as it is!
Thanks for looking. I’ll be putting up my 30 Days of Lists pages this weekend.
