First of all, thank you so much for all the wonderful comments on my last post! It feels so good to be this excited about something and then seeing others get inspired by it as well. You guys are awesome.
I thought I would pop in quickly while Nora naps and share two spreads I made with Ali’s new releases. They’re both hiking-related, of course. (I really should work more on Nora’s baby album, but it’s almost like her photos are too cute and the stories too precious. I’m worried I won’t do them justice!) The first one is from this amazing afternoon hike/run of Mount Defiance in 2013.
I used the Shine On digital stamp (and added a gradient overlay in Photoshop, which felt like a very 90’s WordArt thing to do, but I loved it and that technique will probably be featured on ALL my sunrise/sunset pages from now on) as well as some phrases, all from the Sparks Digital Stamp set.
The Craft Digital Stamp set can be used for non-crafty themes…like on this page about how we’ve kept our traditions going and doing what we love after Nora joined our family. This is from her first snowshoeing expedition on Mount Rainier last year. Man, she was adorably in those baby sunglasses.
Unfortunately we haven’t been on our annual Paradise snowshoe yet since it’s pretty much been raining or snowing non-stop for months and we don’t want to drive all that way unless there’s a good chance of views, but I hope we can sneak in a late-season adventure before the snow melts.
