Week 22 and I am not over it. That's saying a lot. The fact that I still look forward to filling up this album every week is really cool.
(click to enlarge & the images above will be [somewhat] clearer)
This week was interesting because I had Palm Springs to work in. I knew I was going to do the minibook of the whole trip, but because we were gone S-T I still felt okay about incorporating a full page of photos from the trip. And we didn't take very many photos last week at all.
The "dive right in" text was cut from a j.crew catalog. Super random. But awesome.
I wanted to include our summer manifesto and I loved the idea of it just "floating" as an insert. My original plan was to stick the photo (it's 5x5) into a 12x12 page protector and sew around it, but I didn't have any 12x12 page protectors.
So I improvised and used a 12x12 Clearly Heavy Overlay from Hambly instead. I just punched 3 holes in it and adhered the photo to the middle.
On the backside, I stuck a piece of Studio Calico paper trimmed to the same size. I added a "summer 2012" button from Ormolu to the center of it.
Turned out rad enough and I love the floating effect.
Usual suspects on the right side. That Basil Hayden label came from a bottle of whiskey Paul recently tried and loved. Gold glitter stickers on the Vegas photo are from Michael's.
Yay! Tomorrow I'll share week 22.
