Hello & welcome to ‘Rosa in KY’, which is just a little spot where I’ll be sharing my craft-y adventures! I’ve written a fashion blog & run an etsy store in the past, but lately I’ve been more excited about creating, designing, and making things, just because I want to. The name of the blog has two meanings. I’m Rosa, and I’m currently located in Kentucky. But I also love getting “inky”, whether it’s with stamps, mists, or paints. I’m a big fan of stamping, Project Life, home DIY, and sending homemade cards.
I’ve had a lot of life changes lately, I became engaged, bought a house in Louisville, and got married in the past year. The wedding & honeymoon has been a huge inspiration of photos that I can’t wait to document. I’m also working on making our house a home, and also setting up my personal craftroom/office. Yes, a real dedicated space to creating!! This is very exciting, and such a nice change from my little studio in Manhattan. So I have no excuse to let my supplies and photos sit pretty on my shelves.
Here is one of my latest scrapbook layouts. I used mostly the Studio Calico “Sandlot” main scrapbook kit and “Hercules” add-on. Main kit: “Be Happy” stamp, “Love” cut out of patterned paper, Fountain cardstock used as a photo mat. Hercules add-on: black chevron patterned paper, flowers cut out of pp, silver doily, and teal jellies. The wooden veneer banner is from the PL kit.
I really loved the patterned paper in the Hercules add-on, especially the combo of the black chevron and red/pink flowers. The silver doily added just the right amount of shine.
I’m still working on improving my photography for my projects, but I’m excited to start sharing what I’m working on!
