My name is Sasha Farina and I’m so excited to be the Guest Designer for August! I’m married to Sam and together we have two beautiful daughters, Neha (15) and Nidhi (13). I recently went back to work after being a stay-at-home mom for 14 years and that, my friends, is a huge adjustment, not only for me, but for the whole family. Thank goodness for scrappy time to keep me sane! :)
I had lots of fun with August kit + Happy Things collection! I made two layouts and have lots left. I will surely be using them to create more, and when I do, I usually post them to my Instagram account.
Almost always the photographer, even when being photographed. :)
My brother-in-law took this photo of me taking photos of Neha at the abandoned house next door. I thought it’s perfect for this layout.
I stamped #thestoryofmylife repeatedly using various shades of black and grey ink. Love how that turned out. I’m also a little bit obsessed with black and white at the moment, that Doodle Borders patterned paper from Happy Things collection is totally made for me. LOL.
I also scattered some of the acrylic xs on my layout. I can’t get over how beautiful they are.
Love The Details
Look at that Doodle Borders patterned paper being the star of my layout again! I used the 12x12 this time and made it the background of my layout, making sure that my white cardstock is cut smaller so that more of that beautiful piece of paper can be shown off.
I cut apart the labels and stitched them back onto the layout, using what else but yellow thread. I love machine stitching with yellow thread. Don’t ask me why, I just love the way it looks.
Another current love of mine on this layout is the (Happy Things collection) black glittery foam word sticker. I’m totally gonna be using up the rest of my pack and will be ordering more! :) I also used up all the hearts from (Happy Things collection) puffy stickers pack. I love scattering small bits of embellishments that way, they make me, well, happy! :)
The journaling is quite private for this one so I wrote it on the back. :)
Thank you Kinnari for inviting me to play with August Kit and Happy Things collection! I had a grand time!
