Hi Folks! This week we're sharing the love by combining Winnie & Walter products with the new Felicity line from Pinkfresh Studio. Wouldn't you know, they work so well together! Let's take a look...
We started with an amazing set of Felicity stickers (puffy, wood veneer, washi and paper), die cuts, a 6x6 paper pad, and a set of stamps (thanks Pinkfresh!!)
This card uses several Pinkfresh Felicity stamps: the houses (love how the tire tread pattern goes through them, and look ... it even matches the patterned paper!!), the "life is beautiful" secondary sentiment, the washi tape patterns below the houses, the flower cluster outlines, and the birds on wires on the card base. This card also has Felicity patterned paper on the base, as well as a "smile today" word sticker. The Winnie & Walter elements include the panel and the butterfly from Essentials: Audrey cutaways, and the "hello" from The big, the Bold and the Happy cutaways.
While I'm obsessed with using sequins on almost every card, it's nice to accent it with something else for a change, like this tiny wood veneer asterisk.
I also made a scrapbook page documenting one of my bucket list items for this year ... learning how to shoot photos in manual mode. It's been ridiculous. I've taken thousands of photos since my kids were born 11 years ago, bought a really nice camera and lens, use the photos in scrapbook pages and on canvases in my home, and all this time I've only shot in automatic mode. It was a disaster any time I tried one of the manual modes, and my kids were never one to sit patiently while I fiddle around with camera settings. So this year, one of my besties gave me a spot in a photography class. Life changing!! From that moment on, I've vowed that I will never again shoot in automatic mode. It's been a little rocky, but I feel myself getting better each time I pick up the camera (which usually is multiple times a day.)
The title is Winnie & Walter In a Word: Hello cutaway, paired with a banner from The Big, the Bold and Extras cutaways. The camera in the foreground is from one of my favorite older sets The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect, with an inset of patterned paper from the Felecity line. Behind the title I have two more sheets from the 6x6 patterned paper line.
The bird and phrase are Felicity die cuts (love that there is no work required to use them, I'm so used to stamping everything!) I stamped the camera bleeding off the right edge of the layout.
The birds on wires stamp was fun to use at the indention of my paragraph, and tied that section in with the bird pattern paper, the bird die cut, and the bird camera. It's hard to see, but above the photo of me shooting our models, I stamped a tiny "you + me" from The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect, because as much joy as I got from learning about my camera in the all-day class, it was also amazing to be sharing that experience with Brenda.
Here's one of the Felicity squiggle die cuts, layered over the washi tape stamp. Such great space-fillers!
