One cute horse... a couple layouts to end the year!


Gotta make this fast! Yesterday, I scrapped this page for Scrap That - I love the use of buttons in lieu of flowers. This is largely made from retired Stampin Up products!

I set out to do the Scrapbooksteals Jade 3 layout... picked out the paper and photos.  But then began another layout at the same time. WHAT? I have really got to learn to focus.

Supplies Used: Authentiqe Enchanted collection AC thickers, 1" SU circle punch, SU pennant punch, Fancy pants Trick or Treat paper collection, whisper white SU cardstock, SU naturals white card stock.
Ever since I learned that paper has memory from Becky Fleck, I am forever just using my nail to pop up my banners off the page. It's another way to create dimension.
There's a hidden journal tag in this layout - I simply created my tag by punching out a one inch circle and using a corner chomper. Very easy - make sure those memories are preserved!
I struggled to get my title to pop - I landed on thickers because they created dimension but also because the corner was fabulous! Because I had a long title I needed to figure out how to fit it in.  I love these tiny type letters (which I used on both layouts today).  I popped it off the page using a half circle matching the pennants and journaling tag.
Here's the layout I did in the middle of the layout above.  It was super quick and easy and was inspired by a couple members of Sketches in Thyme (Anastasia & Lea).  I had some fun with the twine and the washi tape but I got serious with my journalling. It's the first time I really did a layout for myself. Its a quick one but I adore it. So real.
Supplies Used: Little Yellow Bicycle "The Escape", Stampin Up naturals ivory cardstock, My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 3 (Ruby), Doodlebug loopy love letters, Authentique Enchanted Details, Regal Rose SU ink, and unknown twine.
See you in 2013!
