And welcome to week nine of our Project Life album for 2015. HUGE week around here at 209 including International Day at school where all four babes got dressed up, Henry received Star of the Week (the celebrations went on all weekend), the 9th issue of Jot Magazine was released in which I
Yesterday I shared with you a quick step-by-step on how to use your acrylic stamps. You can see that post here. Today here are a couple of examples of why your new homemade vellum embellishments are handy and how you can use them.
I’m a huge fan of using what I have around me when I get stuck into creative projects. Last year I purchased a pack of vellum sheets. Having not used one, hello little hoarder, I finally ripped open that packet last week after I saw, and was inspired by, a home made stamped embellishment created by Kellie Winnell of Give a Girl a Blog in her Project Life pages. Here’s a quick step-by-step which will also be handy for those of you who are new to the world of acrylic stamps.
Do you feel naturally drawn to people who have ‘happy’ written all over their face? I do. But really, who doesn’t!? When you see a child smiles it melts your heart, right?

Fridays are a big deal in our little house. We celebrate by buying party food and eat a throw-together dinner. We dance in our little kitchen to our playlists and YouTube videos and stay up late (which is really only until about 9:30 for the kids).
