Worth It

Today I want to share another one of the sample pages I made for February’s LOAD. The prompt Lain gave me was “I Feel Like I’m…” Just that day I had headed out to Starbucks for a treat, so my first thought when I read the prompt was “I feel like I’m…worth it!” I decided to go with it! Of course that meant I had to go to Starbucks again and enjoy another treat (on a different day)…tragedy! 😉

  • Design Inspiration: I pinned this layout from Chic Tags quite awhile ago. I loved how the circles trickled across the page and wanted to replicate that on my layout.
  • Color Inspiration: My color choices came from the Starbucks ephemera I grabbed along with my cup of coffee.


I shot my two photos using Instagram on my iPhone while sitting at a table in Starbucks. I even grabbed a few extra stir sticks and another cup thingy (what are those called anyway? holder? cozy? keep your hand from burning thing?) I actually already had the giftcard envelopes at home just waiting for the perfect page.

I used Glossy Accents to adhere the stir sticks to the page (love that stuff). And then to give the stir sticks a bit extra glam I did add a few gemstones.

To replicate the circles trickling down the page I used these adorable snowflake rub-ons.  Once again I added some gems to the center for a bit more bling.

I’ve had these cork stickers for ages and thought they would work well on the page. Unfortunately I didn’t have an Ts. So I decided to cut some out of the leftover cup holder thing. I really like the eclectic look it gives the title!

And then I just wrote my journaling right on the Starbucks giftcard envelope. I really love how this page turned out! Such a random little snapshot of something I love right now!

Venti Decaf Caramel Macchiato single shot with whip and some pumpkin bread…I can hear you calling my name right now! Who cares if it’s $7, I’m worth it…right?!?

    I loved this page when I saw it on LOAD. What a fun way to use the things you get from a shop. Love how you improvised with the ‘t” letters. Definitely a fun layout to create and share.
