DIY Typography Art Part 2

DIY Typography Art

Last year on our anniversary, we shared a DIY Typography Tutorial. The resulting art was supposed to be one of two, but it took me all year to get to the above sister piece. Hah!

Welcome to Week 7 of Project Life! I’m still loving this project so much – I look forward to it every week. I love getting things done real time, I love that I can get several layouts worth of subjects into one spread (with inserts, which I can’t seem to … Read the rest

Finished the Yellow Brick Road

I started my first quilt in 2009 and it is finally finished and on my bed. How’s that for turnaround time?

Project Life 2012 | Week 6 + A Day in the Life

This week’s Project Life contains 60 photos. 60! And there’s tons of text too – about 6 pages of 12 point font in a Word document. If you have been wondering why I’m such an advocate for Project Life, there’s your answer.

This week I challenged myself to keep it … Read the rest

Let me just say that I’m obsessively in love with this project. Every time I put the album away I have to fight the urge to get it out and look at it. Also, I’m pretty sure everyone that visits our … Read the rest
