VIDEO: Pick 5! // Love That Face 12x12 Layout

June 18, 2016

It's another fine day for another video on my channel! This one was quite the doozie. I picked out 5 things and was super excited to use them. Then, one thing went down hill. First, I'll tell you waht I picked for my pick 5 challenge. I chose a teal ink pad, some white die-cut flowers, Freckled Fawn washi tape, My Mind's Eye Happy Place 6x6 paper pad, and some Jillibean Soup glitter chipboard alphas. Now, I dare you to guess what went wrong!

As you can probably now tell from the layout, the glitter letters seem to be almost non-existent (thank goodness for &). I opened up that package of letters and there were no c's, e's, or f's and I'm sure other letters if I looked hard enough, but I couldn't spell what I wanted to. :( In the video you'll see me sift through all of my other letter stickers to find something to fit. I'm still happy with the results and I did complete my pick 5 challenge!

This process video was a lot of fiddling around and I'm sorry that it might not have been that entertaining. I loved the way my ink blended flowers came out. These flowers are about 6 years old if not older and I'm finally breaking them out and using them!

I didn't realize I used sooo many sequins at the time, but they were just the perfect colors, so I basically had to. Can we just talk about this Freckled Fawn washi tape?! It is gorgeous! I picked it up on clearance for $1 and I'd say it's my new favorite.

I'm pretty sure that I am addicted to wood veneer. I always want to reach for it. It's like my previous addiction to kraft cardstock (which I still have). I. cannot. get. enough! Let's talk about some other trends while we're on the subject. I love the look of stitching on layouts, but I can't bare to put a beautiful layout in the sewing machine and possibly destroy it. So, I'll skip out on that one.

Another trend that I love and hate at the same time is enamel dots. I don't technically own enamel dots and never have. All I have are the gems and the pearl dots. I do like seeing people making their own though, so maybe I'll give that a try. The spending freeze for this month is going well. I don't even need new adhesive yet! 

The last trendy product I want to talk about are these itty bitty letter stickers and word stickers. Let me tell you, I don't think I could ever live without them again. Of course, I won't buy more until I've used a substantial amount of these ones (or a really good clearance pack). How do you all monitor your stash? I'm trying to get a lot of pages done this summer while I can! Thanks for stopping by and I hoped you enjoyed this layout!
