The Flu & a Layout


I've been struck by an awful case of the flu. I haven't been able to do much but lay on the couch and watch some TV.  Over the weekend I was able to play around a little on the laptop and edit some photos, so I'm able to share a layout I created.

I really like how this layout came out. I used the Studio Calico October Kit: Field Guide for the majority of the layout---I added the bird stamp at the top which was in a previous kit. I've been in love with all of the new Amy Tangerine products, especially the thickers and washi tape.

The journaling on the manila tag was done by running washi tape through my home printer. I really love how it came out.

It was very easy to do: 
1. print out a test page with your journaling
2. grab a second clean sheet of paper and place it on top of your test page, put the washi tape where your text would be
3. run it through the printer with the same settings as your test page
4. make sure to let it dry after it comes out of the printer, or it will smear. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
