Hello SMS fans! It’s Sarah on the blog today and I have something new and exciting to share with you all! With the beginning of the new year I started a new way of documenting and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have. It’s my new “No rules, just fun” approach to documenting. No more keeping track of week numbers and dates. No more stressing over taking a bunch of pictures every week! I am simply documenting the activities I want to. Telling the stories that are important to me and my family. And using the products that I am most excited about! Here is my project for today using my new 9×12 album from A Beautiful Mess:
I used the January 2017 Studio Calico Documentor Kit, and of course a bunch of goodies from the SMS shop!
I cut an acetate sheet from Illustrated Faith down to 6×8 and punched holes in it so it would fit in my album. I added the SC exclusive Jasmine Jones rubber “January” and I used some old Dear Lizzy Thickers from my stash to spell out “stories”. I also added a gorgeous new Corky Flakes. I used my sewing machine to adhere them.
My husband and I went on a romantic mini break to Lake City and I printed out 14 pictures from that weekend at 3×3. I cut a few of the Studio Calico cards from the Documentor Kit down to 3×3 also. I added my hand written journalling on a piece of exclusive One Little Bird ephemera.
I added some of the amazing new Strawberry Bubblegum sequin mix to one of the 3×3 pockets and sewed it shut with my sewing machine.
I used a few tiny word stickers and the XO heart from the December Citrus Twist kit. I stamped the date with my new Pebbles roller date stamper. I had to retire my Becky Higgins one as it only went thru 2016! I also added a few bits of wood veneer from Citrus Twist.
I added another Corky Flake to a 3×3 pocket! It is large enough and sturdy enough to just slip into the pocket. No need to sew it shut!
I hope you have enjoyed my first project using this new form of documenting! Look for more from me next!
