Life Crafted with Angela



Hello friend! It’s Angela and I have a new spread of my Life Crafted album to share with you. Cravings June kit is so inspiring and seams to be designed on me and my everyday routine. For example, let's talk about Pizza die cuts and stamps! You have to know that we, my family and I, eat pizza every Friday! I used to make pizza myself when my sons were small. Later, when I started working on night shifts, I stopped making it. Recently, during the lockdown, despite it was very difficult to find flour and yeast, I started again and since mid March, I've been making pizza every single Friday. Sometimes, I’m also able to engage every family member in making it.
So, the protagonist of my spread today is pizza!

To document those hilarious days of making mess rather than making pizza together, I wanted to create something fun. So, I made an interactive page and a shaker pocket. I stamped a big photo of a pizza and I cut it round, following its shape. To make it fit inside the album, I cut a portion on one side. This way, I've been able also to make four holes. Then, I cut a triangle of the photo in the shape of pizza slice and I glued it on acetate. 



On the acetate, I stamped the phrases 'I want some more' from June Life Crafted Travelers Notebook stamp and 'get in my belly' from Cravings Kit Stamp. The photo of the pizza is interactive. In fact, the triangle of the photo slides up and dow. To make it, I backed the photo with white card stock, without gluing the triangle so to allow it to move.




The first page of the spread is actually the one with the two photos of my youngest son Filippo while is kneading pizza dough. The photos are 3x4 inches and I put them in page protector #2




Beside, I used another page protector #2 with a journaling card in the lower pocket. With the top pocket I created a shaker, to remind the fun of cooking together. The confetti inside the shakers are red sequins and slices of pizza that I stamped and fussy cut using Yes This Is Life stamp.




Moreover, I used the same pizza slices to create a background on the journaling card, simply stamping with light grey ink.




On the opposite side side, I placed the photo of my men preparing pizza with their favorite ingredients. Beside is the photo of the big pizza with the slice portion 'closed'.




To decorate, I used just a few pieces here and there, like a chipboard, a die cut, a puffy sticker heart, all from Cravings kit.




On the back of the photo, I wrote another bit of journaling. I adhered a title using the die cut Pizza Night! and a label where I stamped Food Is Culture using  Cravings Kit Stamp.




Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you liked my fun page and hopefully feel inspired to create with June Cravings kits!
