Hi everyone, today I am excited to have Creative Team member Jenn Hutt on the blog! Be sure to check out her About Me page where you can learn more about her and also connect with her on social media.
Hey ya’ll! I hope this finds you well!
So this month was a little more difficult for me because of a move that has taken way longer than it was supposed to. Long story short, due to circumstances out of our hands, I have had to do most of the move by myself around a school and work commitment, so I haven’t been as crafty as I would like.
But that is the beauty of Theresa’s gorgeous digital collections! I usually do hybrid layouts but this month I decided to go all digital! It was kind of fun doing everything from my computer and it took me way less time then I usually take to complete a project. I am working with the Larkindesign Grow Deeper Roots collection!
I will still probably stick with physical / hybrid layouts… but digital is good in a pinch!
My first layout is a 12X12 layout about our new house. This picture was taken when I first got the keys, which means that there was still some work to be done. They were finishing the roof, the new garage door had no trim, and the house hadn’t been pressure washed yet… and that’s just on the front of the house. We were still super excited to move in though!
I used one of the 12X12 papers from the March release Grow Deeper Roots. I added a small black across the middle of the paper in a teal color taken directly from the background paper. I then took my photo and matted it on a purple mat (color directly from the paper as well) before putting it over that teal black. I used one of the digital journaling blocks from the kit and wrote out some small journaling and added “new house” as the title right beside it.
Overall, I like how it looks. It was simple and easy and still something that I can put in my album!
My second project is a single page of a Travelers Notebook spread that I made about a scrappy retreat I went to with my mother-in-law. I took a 3X4 card and resized it to 4.15″X8.15″ to fit the travelers notebook paper. I took a photo of my MIL and I and matted it on a black square before putting it at the top of the paper. I used the same journaling square from my last spread and wrote some quick journaling about the spread and called it good!
I am still getting used to digital. I usually just recolor elements, create journaling cards, and then print everything off to do a hybrid approach! This was fun and new.
I can’t wait to see what I come up with April’s kit, which will be released just around the corner!
