Archer Live

Back in April, Tab and I attended Archer Live! in the city. If you’re a fan of the animated show, go see the Live version with the cast doing readings and trivia. It was awesome, and just about the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.

Since we couldn’t take photos during the show, I only had one of the stage. It’s a a bit blurry, but I still wanted to include it. I took two photos outside the theater, one after work and one right before the show. That worked out because in one the lights are turned on, and in the other they’re not so there’s a little bit of contrast.

I chose the background paper from the Rockstar stack because it looked like it matched the lights of the theater a bit.

Even though the ticket stub was one of those plain inkjet paper print-at-home ones, I still included it. I miss the good old days with real ticket stubs ;-).

If I could have, I would’ve done the whole title in those sparkly letters, but I didn’t have enough stickers so I jut used them for the last half. The letter stickers for ‘Archer’ were actually from the Target dollar bin, and surprisingly good quality.

I did all my journaling on the computer, because I knew I had a lot to say and handwriting would’ve take up too much space. The journaling card was a free download by Just Jamiee, but I changed the size of it myself.

Lastly, I printed off a tiny Archer meme to add in because I couldn’t help myself ;-). I actually thought the paw was done before that, but then I thought it would be hilarious to add that it.


Oh man, I love that show.

Sorry about the blurring, I don’t know anything about ticket stubs, so I wasn’t sure if any of those numbers corresponded with the credit card we used to buy them.

Paper is DCWV’S Rockstar stack, mat paper is Making Memories Autumn Splendor, journaling card free download from here, letter stickers (for “archer”) were from the Target dollar bin, and blue letter stickers are really old but purchased from JoAnn’s.

Biking in Chicago

Tab and I participated in the 2013 Bike the Drive event in Chicago. It happens annually, but this was our first time and it was awesome.

I included the numbers that were stuck on our shirts, our wristbands, the official race guide, and a small cut out that showed us where to wear our numbers.

My favorite thing to do when scrapping brochures, which you can see here with the race guide, is to only adhere the back panel. This way, when I go back to the pages in three weeks three years, I’ll remember what I was talking about. You can take the page out of its sheet protector and unfold the guide to read all about the event.

The two photos on the right were printed by Shutterfly, but the 8×10 collage on the left was printed by Walgreens. They had a coupon code on their site for a free collage print (normally $4.95, I believe), so I decided to give it a try. I was actually pleasantly surprised by the quality and the crispness of the photos. It saved me a lot of time because I didn’t have to mat all those photos! The only thing I’d change if I could, was that I wish Walgreens gave you the option to round corners. I love rounded corners, but I didn’t round the corners of the collage print because I thought it’d look strange with the straight corners of the photos.





Paper is from my favorite Me & My Big Ideas stack that I got as a gift twice. Yup, two of the same one. I didn’t exchange it for a different one because I love the paper so much. That little ‘incredible’ chipboard was from a set from Michael’s about a million years ago. Purple mats are from the DCWV Jewel Tones mat stack, green paper is WausauPaper card stock. Journaling was typed onto a card I made on the computer, and the small date stamp under that is from Amazon (which Tab just got for me so I’m in love. You’ll see it stamped on a lot of pages lately. It reminds me of old library books!)
