Hey, everyone! Because it's a holiday weekend here in the U.S., I have a little extra time for "paper play." I decided to participate in Marcy Penner's and Stephanie Bryan's first Jumpstart challenge. I love both ladies' work, so I was excited to see that they have decided to post bi-monthly challenges. This first prompt asked us to use a colored photo and a black & white photo. This is one of my go-to techniques, so I had a lot of fun with this one.
I also decided it was time to use some of the stash that I've been hoarding - mainly this Crate Paper collection. I also recently purchased some files from The Cut Shoppe. It's been awhile since I used my silhouette, and I'm loving everything that Ashley creates, so I decided to go for it. Although, I did realize that I need a new cutting mat and a new blade - my current mat is not as sticky as it should be and my blade is not cutting as clean as it should! Ha!
In other, unrelated news, I finally caved and got an Instagram account. I am sort of obsessed. I think that is why I waited so long - I knew it would be addictive!
