Capsule Crafting - March Edition

My craft room is a disaster. If there's one thing that will happen from being stuck at home for weeks on end... it's going through and getting rid of all of the things that are just not being used. However, there's a TON of stuff that I actually DO want to use. More. A few weeks back, Kristina Werner was posting about her "Capsule Papercrafting List" and actually using more, with less. Ingenious.

Here is my Capsule Papercrafting Supplies for March. I plan on making at least 10 cards, or some other projects with these. Maybe more! Who knows. ALL materials (except the Authentique Bundle - as I design for them) have been purchased exclusively by me, and are only used for my personal projects.

I wanted to include a few various companies and ideas. Or things that I've had for awhile and really haven't used much, if at all. Concord & 9th: Feathered Bundle, Here's the Scoop Bundle, Wonderful Florals, The Stamp Market: Friendly Bunch Stamp Set, Neat & Tangled: Dazzling Stamp & Die, Stampin' Up (this is a retired dots stamp from forever ago...)

Some of the tools I will use. These are specific things. Dies - stencils - floss
Waffle Flower: A2 Layer Dies, Lawn Fawn: Flippin' Awesome Dies & Lawn Trimmings, random die from Amazon (gift), DMC Floss: 604, 165, 964, 702, 3812, 962, 3712, 352, Neat & Tangled: Dimensional Triangles Stencil, heart stencil - (I forget what brand)

These are a bit of everything... Authentique Paper: Refreshed 6x6" Bundle, Pink Paislee: Moonstruck cork stickers, Felicity Jane: Essentials Puffy Alphabet, Shimelle: Enamel Dots, Clique Kits: bits of a past kit, Gelly Roll: wide white pen, Chameleon: black pen

These are my colors. Stamp Market Color Crush paper - just leftovers from past projects, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, Wonder Forest Paintbrushes, waterbrush, some already colored images from Jessa Feig (she is AMAZING!!)

I purchased the entire Color Crush set a few weeks back. The lovely people at Stamp Market even fixed an error quickly. I love them! I also snagged the newer Black, Navy and No-Line inks!

Lastly, it's the basics. VersaMark Ink, VersaFine Ink, Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, Ranger Multi Medium Matte, and an acrylic block.

Alright... Here goes! Pin It

AUTHENTIQUE PAPER: Let's Go On a Trip Voyage Mini Album

Are you ready to go on a trip yet? We have been at home for a week now, and everyone is getting a little stir-crazy. This little mini album is created for our next adventure. The Voyage collection was the perfect collection for this one page mini album. The lighthouses, the little crabs, and all of the nautical elements are perfect for living in the Puget Sound.
To start, I grabbed this fabulous mini album cut file from the Silhouette Online Store. The base of this mini album is just one sheet of Voyage Four. The red on the inside will be a great background for all of the smaller elements and patterns.
The ribbon is a combination of both sides of Voyage Ten. I like the combo of red, white, and blue and the nautical stars.
Once open, you can see all of the fun details and patterns that are used. I really liked using the larger patterns from the 12x12" papers, but you could also use the smaller patterns from the Bundle if you like the smaller patterns.
On the inside, I used a combination of many of the papers. 
Adding a little but of foam adhesive created just the right amount of dimension for the small sections.
I also cut down a few of the cut-apart pieces from Voyage Eleven, so that they would fit in the little boxes. The ones that are left alone will be perfect places for tiny photos from our next adventure.
The stickers from the Details sticker sheet are also great additions to the mini album. 
I love seeing how the pattern of the outside of the mini album goes well with the inside pieces. This will be perfect for our next adventure.
