Photo Focus Layout #5

Pulled my photo boxes out and with the thought of being able to cut into the new You Are Enough papers, I was looking for photos with jewel tones. Have you seen these papers yet? The shinny is rose gold!

For as lovely as these papers are, the photos I pulled from the box just fit so nicely with this old Jubilee paper workshop layout (LO) that I will continue to wait to cut into the You are Enough pack.

One of the “photos” was really just a print on plain paper, so I backed it with cardstock and was able to use it to show more of the people that shared the day with me.

Here is the video that includes my thought process in fitting older photos with empty layouts.

Happy Crafting.

Photo Pairing #3

As some of you might know, I have found 1000s of photos and hundreds of blank layouts as we unpack and settle into our home. I’m trying to pair the photos with the layouts in an effort to get them into albums that everyone can enjoy.

These photos (all 3 of them) are from my husband’s high school senior trip. He really likes the layout.

Happy Crafting!

Cards from Scraps

I was certain that I had a craft desk in my studio. If you walked into my room, you needed to look closely to see glimpses of the top. In an effort to dust off my crafting mojo and find the top of my desk, I created some cards.

Here is the Process Video if you want more information.

Hope you find some time to craft!

Making a Layout work for you

I have stacks of unopened Craft with Heart Layout kits and boxes of photos. I also have bins of 100’s of layouts created from workshops with no kits. I am starting a series of showing how to use my photos and let the pre-done layouts work for me.

These are the finished layouts, the video got cut short. oops!

Scrapbooking at last!

It’s been over 8 months since I did ANY scrapbooking, and before that had been a couple of years. There are a few things I learned as I am diving back into it.

At first, I tried to start with a set of photos that had memorabilia and would be multiple layouts with extra photos to boot. That was a bit too ambitious for my rusty skills. I put those back and grabbed the photos from one of our trips to Boca Grande. I learned after I had started that I didn’t have all the photos printed from this trip so I used some photo placeholders and marked on them in the direction that the photo is oriented for the layout.

20+ embellishments on ONE layout. That was shocking just a few years ago. Now I have that in one cluster of embellishments!

This is the link to the Cricut CTMH Serenity image set and here is the design file I used. (I cut 2 sets of the flowers in lagoon & grape.)

Here is a video walk through showing my process. Enjoy

Happy Crafting!
