I had Taylor Swift's 22 in my head the whole time I was making this. Maybe channeling a little TSwift bounciness helped me out because it turned out to be one of my favorite spreads of the album. I'm going to see her in Seattle with friends in a couple weeks so just you wait for that week's spread!
Here's a video of the process (apologies for the quality, something was up with my camera.) Click to play or watch it on my YouTube channel:
I used the Summertime kit that was released in my shop back in May (still a few left, so snag one fast.) This stamp set was by far one of my favorites to play with. When I designed it I had lots of ideas for the lemon/lime/orange images in my head, so it was fun to finally get stamping with them.
Photos were printed at home so they were easy to stamp onto directly. The inks I used are linked below, but they did have a little trouble sticking to the photo paper (I ran out of my normal Kirkland photo paper the other day so grabbed some quick from the office supply store - not excited about this other brand.)
I had seen a project from Tina where she cut out the photo of her son and it was so cool. After shuddering when I look back at my first scrapbook albums from 15 years ago where I cut out silhouettes of people, who knew that I'd want to cut out a person from a photo right now! I adhered it to a card from the Summertime kit and added some little stamped pieces. The leaves are from the Summertime kit and the just be your selfie is from my Clearly Kelly 100% Me set.
I also stamped onto the photo with the Brilliance Moonlight White ink and the stamps from the Summertime kit. This is probably one of the brightest + most colorful layouts in my whole album. Zero complaints here.
PS: shop update coming this Friday with some really, really good stuff! Newsletter subscribers got a first peek this morning along with a discount code so check your inboxes. More peeks in another newsletter on Thursday. I don't know 'about you but I'm feeling 22 excited!
