Traditional Scrapbook Layout Week 4

Hi friends, I had one more layout for Week 4 that I wanted to create because it was our daughter’s birthday. I decided to use up some of my January Gossamer Blue Main and Life Pages Kit so this one is a traditional layout. Here is my process video:

Here is a look at the layout overall.

I really like using this horizontal grid, but there were some things I did a little different on this layout. This is one of the things I actually love about traditional scrapbooking – being able to experiment on paper with different elements and techniques. So my title card is one of the journal cards from the kit.

I added a few elements across the bottom of this side, which steps outside of the grid. The wood word goes off the photo to connect these elements to the rest of the block.

On the opposite side I wrote just a little journaling on this tag from Fancy Pants. This little pack of tags is perfect for adding simple journal spots and I used quite a few of them on this layout just to add some details.

I adore that patterned paper from Studio Calico and I added a few splotches to the white cardstock to repeat that pattern. It reminds me of confetti – how perfect for a party theme!

The two journal cards in the center of this side are fairly simple, just word strips and hearts.

The bottom journal card is just pure fun with diagonal stripes and glitter alphas from Heidi Swapp.

Well, that’s another week in the books. I hope you have a creative weekend and I will see you soon!

Simple Planner 2016 Vol. 03

Hi there! New week means new planner layout, so take a look at how I embellished my planner this week.

 

I received my Ali Edwards Project Life Storytelling kit last week and was delighted that the stamp set has the days of the week included! So I knew already I was going to use those. I had already misted the pages with my Heidi Swapp spray mist and heart stencils, which I just adore.

I chose a simple gold heart washi to embellish across the top. I also chose a thin navy washi to create the divisions between the days.

For the numbers I decided to use the Fitzgerald alpha set from Cedar Lane, and while I was pulling those I came across the word strips, so I added those in some places as well.

Thursday of this week is an important day – our son is going into the hospital for some outpatient blood work. If you are the praying type, say a few prayers and positive thoughts for him on that day! I added a few word strips on that day, just to provide some space to acknowledge that as a big day for us.

For my dashboard, I wanted to use these speech bubbles, they are old stickers from IKEA from last spring and I have had them laying around forever! But I thought they would be cute to write my to-do lists for this week. I added some of the word strips and stamps from Ali’s stamp set, and called it done.

Very quick and easy embellishing this week, and I am glad I have some pretty things to look at while we work our way through this week. I hope you have an inspired and creative week too! 

See you soon,
