Pizza Party!

Chris and I took a Wednesday this past February off from work to go to a Syracuse basketball game (and this time not get stuck in rush hour traffic) and be able to leave early for it. But we still had time to kill before heading out so he suggested we head to the Pizza Stop over on State St. in downtown Rochester and since it was a normal workday for everyone else, we should be able to hit them at their peak of the day and get some hot, fresh pizza! It was so amazing, and made me feel like I was right back in NYC!

OK, onto the layout itself! Take a look at the "Water Wars" layout by Summer Fullerton seen here and you will see my main inspiration!

Originally I was going to use a journal box or tag of some sort in the upper left corner, but ended up cutting out some pizza from one of the photos! I stamped the "Love You" bubble onto the pre-cut diecut that came in the SoCal kit from Studio Calico, originally stamped in Wet Cement, but ended up feeling it was too light so stamped over the gray with my new Versafine in Onyx Black stamp pad! With the gray underneath it stamped really well so it was a "lucky" mistake!

The lower right corner was the same idea, stamped the "This was a great idea" sentiment. I also stamped the pinking circle onto letter paper around a "P" for pizza, and hand cut it out using my awesome Fiskars fingertip craft knife.

For the main space where the title is, I added some subtle lines of washi tape to close it in and some hand stitching on top of the letters. My husband came up with the "New York Style" subtitle after I had tried adding "It's a" before the "pizza party" portion of the title in small gray letters that ended up disappearing into the background. Def liked this better and loved how this layout came out!

  • Almost everything I used was from the new June "SoCal" kit by Studio Calico! Def loving this kit so far!
  • The background paper (top and bottom) is exclusive Tim and Beck for Studio Calico and the orange paper with circles is called "Nice to meet you" from the Konnichiwa collection by BasicGrey
  • The pinking circles in the upper left and colorful tabbed box in the lower right are exclusive from Studio Calico, as well as the Love You bubble stamp, and the "This was a great idea" stamp being from the Adventure Stamp Set
  • The "like" on the tab is a rub-on from the Vintage Instaframes from the Heidi Swapp collection by Pink Paislee, as were the New York Style subtitle letters called bitty blocks from the Prairie Hill collection
  • The Pizza Party cardboard letter stickers are from Pebbles
  • I pulled the buttons from the Follow Your Heart collection by My Mind's Eye, as well as the "no. 1" paper clip
  • I used washi tape from American Crafts as well as Freckled Fawn
