Following on from yesterday’s post … if you’ve been into the Design Shop over the last month you will have noticed that there is a new release out. The A Circle of Friends Alphabet Ensemble hit the store on a lovely day when I was feeling all warm and fuzzy about family and having friends. I am seriously in love with this set!
Here’s a short history behind this set’s creation:
In the early days of my design journey I was fortunate enough to be part of the Digital Store Designer Team at ACherryOnTop.com.
Sadly they closed the digital store there some time ago.
However, one of the collaboration kits that I worked on while everything was up and running over there, was a super sweet kit called A Circle of Friends. The original palette for that kit was so beautiful that I just couldn’t resist having a go at using the colour scheme again.
This monogram alphabet set and coordinated embellishments is the result of that revamp of the original monogram alphabet … lucky thirteen years down the track and I adore how this has turned out! I hope that you do too. 8D
Aaaaaand … In order for you to see this set in action, I threw together a super quick and slightly quirky All About Me page for you to view.
It has been absolutely ages since I last scrapped an AAM layout so creating this page was sheer delight … although I must admit that after looking at my selfies I have realised its high time for a new haircut and a makeover! 8D
Having been on the road for over 3 years now, #vanlife, it’s almost become a habit to ignore the so called creature comforts of modern life. Things like “hot showers”, washing clothes in my own “laundry room”, cooking in a “kitchen” with a “sink” and doing “Sunday roasts”, not to mention simple necessities like sleeping in a comfortable “bed” at night.
Some days when I see posts on social media from people complaining about how hard their life is during the COVID-19 lockdown … … … I can’t help it! I am literally PMSL! I am sorry, I know that it is hard for everyone, I just find it funny from my perspective.
Taking things one day at a time as the stuck in a broken down vehicle situation I have been trapped in for nearly a year is now finally close to being resolved and I remember that I am worth all the effort that I put into myself; I am worth loving and taking care of me too.
Thus, on this page I opted to keep the focus simple. With an almost but not quite minimalist feel to the page, I combined muted brown tones with reds, a combination that I particularly love, creating a wistful page that is beautifully rounded out with the soft colours of the A Circle of Friends :: Alphabet Ensemble teamed with the One Day at a Time :: Petite Collection.
So without further ado, please grab it in the Design Shop today.
