I want this album to be a creative refuge for me — so I’m keeping a little box of the Simple Stories supplies in their own separate area. That way if I’m ever just feeling in the mood to get something down on paper, I can get started ASAP. I’ll definitely be supplementing with my Studio Calico kit, and whatever other fun products I get my hands on — but it’s nice to know that I’ve set myself up to be able to create whenever I want — I can even pull my album and this little basket and go sit on the couch while we watch a movie or catch up on the DVR.
I fell in love with the super bright colors, clean lines, and easy to use stuff. This was my absolute favorite thing of all the things at CHA — I had to bring in as much of it as I could. It’s called DIY and DIY Boutique — its all about the basics: bright colors, clean lines, kraft, labels, stickers, etc. It also has really awesome page protectors — perfect for instagram photos.
I’ll be adding to this album whenever I want to retreat into my own head and play with pretty paper. I think there will be a lot of K&J layouts in here — I think I’ll be able to journal a little more openly than in a regular Project Life album.
