There are many, many holidays that happen throughout the year and some of them I've never heard of before. Others are quite fun for those of us who are crafty.
One of those holidays coming up on Sat., January 23rd is National Handwriting Day. Have you heard of that before??
I've noticed that handwriting has taken a back seat in many of our scrapbooks because we tend to go for a more 'polished' look by using a computer for journaling.
But we'd like to challenge you to create a project using your handwriting. Your children and generations from now will love to see what your writing looked like because that is part of who you are.
Maybe you haven't handwritten your journaling in a while. Take some time to practice until your happy with how things look. There's also a number of online calligraphy and modern calligraphy classes (which is so trendy right now) that are available.
So this week we challenged a few our design team members to create a project using their own handwriting. You'll also notice that they are using our new release Parrrty Me Hearty!
Hi everyone! It's Monique here with a layout created with the brand new "Parrrty Me Hearty" collection. I am so happy with this collection! It's just perfect for lots of photos from both my boys and my girl and it's also perfect for many different occasions like summer, beach, pool, birthday parties, etc. And just the occasions where you take many pics!
I chose photos of my youngest son together with one of his friends. His friend's parents own one of those little beach houses you can see in the background of the largest photo and last summer my son joined them quite a few times to their little house on the beach. Together with his friend he dug tunnels for hours on end! When they were asked what they were doing, they said they were searching for treasures, lol. So that had to be scrapped!
Aren't all the papers and embellishments just perfect for photos like these?! I also love the Thickers that belong to this collection. And isn't that angry parrot super cute? He makes me smile.
The diagonal text strips I added to my page are cut from the bottom of the patterned papers. They come in lots of different colors and with different texts and are the perfect finishing touch for any layout! And how about those puffy stickers?! So awesome!
As we're also featuring hand written journaling on our pages, so I included a couple of lines about the who/where/when. Most of the times I include details like these, but I find it really hard to write more than the obvious facts.
Imaginisce: patterned paper, die-cuts, stickers, puffy stickers (Parrrty Me Hearty). American Crafts: cardstock, Thickers.
Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today and I can't wait to learn what you think of the new releases!! Have a fabulous day!
