Welcome in to another weekly layout and how to video!
This week's layout focuses on using lots of pre-made embellishments plus scrapping older (pre-digital) photos. In the video I also talk about my decision to re-do the original of this page and how that is o-kay!
I am using lots of my favorite tips/tricks in the creation of this layout...go-to techniques that I use again and again because they work for me.
- layered circle accents
- kraft journaling block
- white Mister Huey Mist ink
- photo strip that spans the entire 12" layout
- October Afternoon stickers/labels
- die cuts
I used a lot of elements from the Studio Calico County Fair kit and add-ons plus added some from my stash as well. I love how well this die cut from MME works with the rest of my page and Amy Tangerine's fabric cloud stickers...love!
I always think adding a few elements on top of the photos helps tie the page together nicely. The wood veneer alpha from Studio Calico matches the feel and theme of this page perfectly!
As I finished up my page I felt like my focal point photo just needed something but I didn't really want to mat it on white cardstock. Instead, I die cut a decorative border out of cream cardstock from a Kerri Bradford kit and layered it right on my photo. Decorative, cute and fun plus it draws your eye in to that photo!
I string my buttons on cream string and glued them to my page, leaving the ends hanging out for a fun homemade, rustic touch.
