As I move from show to show, I like to keep things that remind me of them- photos, cards from actors, ticket stubs, playbills, maybe even a prop or two that I manage to run off with...anything! I've been working at building a nice album, full of my 'Show Bidness Memories.'
The play I'm working on right now, opened last Friday night. I loved the advertising postcards/flyers for the show. The day I got them, I sat down at my worktable and got to work. One more page for my album!
I sat down in my pile of papers and found this bright pink paper from CRATE. I love CRATE, lately. The backside of this pink paper was a dark brown with a cool minimal design on it- I guess that is why I bought it, but I love that I've ended up using the unexpected (to me) side!
I also have a love for the shape of a postage stamp. I cut the large photo mat, with my Black Friday Cricut Expression 2 and my latest cartridge, 'Elegant Edges.' What a great cartridge. I also used my Cricut to cut the rolodex card shape behind the photo on the left. I found this great shape on the 'Graphically Speaking' cartridge. Another great cartridge to have! I love these kinds of shapes. Anything that reminds me of office supply gives me a thrill. Why? I don't know. I'll explore that with a therapist.
The part of this page that I had the most fun with? The borders. I lined them up all in a row. They're from a pack of borders from K & CO. EVERY border in this set is terrific. The set is called CUT N PASTE. Check them out:

I love this 'New Vintage' look that has really taken off. Will it replace my love for the beautiful grunge from Mr. Holtz? No. But, clean, modern retro is really winning over my heart.
There ya go, a page from my 'Shows' album! If you wanna come to OKC and catch a show, let me know. I'll take you to the Hobby Lobby outlet in the morning. ;-)
