It's just about June and I am in 'getting down to business' mode as far as working on my checklist of things I need to finish before baby # 4 comes NEXT MONTH.
I can't even grasp this yet.
Sometimes I find myself thinking of scenerios of having four, well...particularly three smaller ones and then I have to stop myself because it makes me nervous.
Still, it's happening because I am constantly thinking 'What else can I possibly clean/purge/change/decorate/fixate on before I have all four of my limbs being pulled simultaneously?'
Whereas obviously right now I have a free limb? Not usually.
So, labels. Yes, woodgrain was on my list of labels to try when I brainstormed this series. I wasn't sure how they would come out and part of me wants to do a second version with a larger frame and minus the smaller line to really help the woodgrain *pop* so I think that will be coming in the future.
But...I do like how these turned out.
They are kinda like a neutral as far as labels go.
Look! I made a layout!
I also got slightly distracted this week and started doing a purge/ reorganize scraproom which caused me to accept that I probably wasn't going to use the vast amounts of stickers/ chipboard/ papers I purchased/accumulated eight+ years ago and I should make room for newer items.
Which, caused me to want to start using items...and "ta-da!" (as my nearly two year old exclaims frequently) I made a page! Feels good because as much as I do keep up with our Project Life album I get kinda antsy with the pockets after a while.
SIde note: before you download these labels I have included a blank template inside the woodgrain label download to help out with the trace feature in Silhouette Studio.
Here is what that looks like:
This blank file helps out SO much with these types of labels because the labels are so light the trace feature is super picky and tries to include some of the interior. I managed to cut them out okay, but afterward I thought I could have made it a lot easier on myself by doing this first. This will work on every label file so far because I've just been doing color changes- no changes in shapes or sizes. Just be sure to trace these and overlap the scale correctly on your print file.
I typically scale my labels down 95% when I place them on the grid so, in this case I would scale this down also and then copy and paste it over the woodgrain file. Make sense?
If you've used any labels yet I would love to see how you've used them. Link me up in the comments so I can take a peek!
Have a great weekend everyone!
