- I was feeling very pleased with my collection of words I have been gathering on Pinterest, and how fabulous a great quote plus beautiful typography can be. So much scope for the imagination . . .
- I was pondering the bizarreness of Blogger randomly re-posting "Using your old Patterned Paper", which I had actually written and posted last year! (I decided not to bother deleting it, a casual visitor won't notice, and any really regular visitor will be reading this and go "oh. so that's what happened"). Mainly, I was just thinking about how happy completing that scrapbook page had made me - so happy to be using supplies that had been sitting around unused.
Sometimes my life feels like a list of under-used purchases. Of the three stamp sets used, only the butterfly set feels like I've used it quite a bit, and I'm still enjoying using it (but then seriously, who could get bored of butterflies?)
The bird comes from a Stampin' Up set which I bought on Ebay, not sure if I've ever used it before!
The flourishes are from a Fancy Pants 12" set. I've used the alphabet from the set a bit, but some of the other stamps, not at all.
Bit I'm so happy with how they all came together on this page! Sometimes these days I push myself to use more "product", and other days I say no! enough! and just love the simplicity.
The colours come from this fabulous mood board at Jay Gee's Nook, and I am entering it in their monthly challenge:
I fell in love with this the minute I saw it, and knew I would be using these colours somewhere before the end of the month!
