Last week I spent some time creating several stash kits from my older supplies. I went through all of my patterned papers, purged the ones that I no longer felt inspired to use … and then stacked the rest into a box.
From there, I flipped through the box of the papers I had left and started combining things together to create a kit. Today’s page is my first page using one of those kits … Yay! for using stash!
GOOD TIMES, GOOD VIBRATIONS
This page documents the love my kids have for Beach Boys music … something they learned from their Grandpa. On this particular day they were rocking out in the car. I filmed a video to send to my dad, which warmed his heart.
The blue background paper and cloud paper are REALLY OLD papers from American Crafts … I think from 2009. But I still loved them! And they worked great here!
I cut the speech bubble from a sheet by Teresa Collins Designs, and made it part of my title. The music note paper is also by Teresa Collins Designs.
I scattered some older Dear Lizzy stickers (the bike reminds me of the Beach Boys) and sprinkled in some clear dome jewels by Adornit I have been hoarding in my stash for forever! (LOVE those little things!)
I used some Simple Stories Bloom & Grow Alpha letters and a date strip from a Pebbles Seen & Noted paper branding strip. The date is stamped with Stampin’ Up’s Project Life “Date It” stamp set.
I used my sewing machine to create journaling lines and then handwrote my journaling.
I also added stitching around the edge of the page and speech bubble.
