Hello friends, thanks so much for poppin’ in ! I’m scrapping with Pinkfresh Studio today.
It’s been a wee minute since I posted here. Well, just call me Crash-Kelly, I’ve been recuperating from a broken kneecap and surgery. That was January 26th, so yep, bit of a long haul. I’ve finally conquered climbing stairs on crutches and got back into my craft room ! I’m one happy girl!
While stuck in bed for 6+ weeks, visions of cut files, layouts and new spring collections kept me going. I designed this title using the ‘Outline Block Letters’, available in the Silhouette Store. I overlapped the letters, then used the Weld Tool to tie them together. “OUCH OUCH” was me whimpering when I fell and broke my kneecap, so I thought it was a good title. After backing the cut file, I used my sewing machine to add stitching in gold thread. I love the texture it added. I’ve combined a few of my favourite Pinkfresh Studio collections. You can link to my gallery to see all the products identified. I turned both photos on the layout into mini shakers for added sparkle and dimension. I mean there’s nothing pretty about a leg brace, LOL!
My latest crush, Keeping it Real is a new one from Pinkfresh Studio. With fun phrases like: just relax, OMG, WHAT?! Real Life, not a good day, making it up as I go and pajamas all day, it was perfect for scrapping my accident! There’s so many more clever and sassy phrases I related to.
The top photo is me, shortly after surgery, wearing an ankle to thigh leg brace. I lived in it for 6 weeks and wasn’t to put any weight on my leg or bend my knee. The second photo is a beautiful desert made by my dear friend Lori. It’s just one of many delicious things Lori prepared for us and delivered every week. We felt totally loved and blessed for all her TLC. It gave Jim a much needed break as I became ‘high maintenance’ overnight. While I did get to do some crafting from bed, then the dining table over the last two months, it’s beyond nice to be back in my happy place and use my Cameo again.
Hope you’re creative week is making you smile too!
