Hey there crafty peeps, Kellie here with you to share a layout I created.
So when this gorgeous kit arrived, You + Me I knew right away that anything I created would not involve my husband what so ever. I'm not alone in the craft world where their husbands don't like their photo being taken, rarely, if at all? I mean after doing a podcast once and attending a couple craft retreats, I found out a lot of people thought I was a single mum. I can promise, he's real, haha. So I knew right away this kit is going to be used for the people I love, that let me take their photo or a photo with them, haha.
This girl I love to bits. We met online because of crafting, CRAZY right? It's been almost 10 years now, WHOA ok, I didn't realise that, haha.
I scarp in the size of 6x8. It can be a challenge sometimes because I want to add more, but I've tried so many sizes over my time in crafting and 6x8 I just love. Usually with a typical white cardstock background, NOT this time! I absolutely loved to pattern with the pink and the lined paper look that I just knew I ad to use that as the background.
I love using instax photos when I scrap? I don't know why, maybe because of the smaller size, but the photos just GO with the style I do. Do you pick your photo first or are you the type that picks what you will use first and then go from there? I personally pick a photo first.
After I've picked the photo I always go to the die cut ephemera, then more pattern paper, strips, and stickers and layer and layer as I go. Once I'm happy I take a happy snap so that I can then remember where everything goes. There have been many a times that I've walked away for some reason or another and then come back and completely forget where I had things. i do this for almost everything, project life, cards and layouts. highly recommend it.
After all that this is the final result and I'm super happy with how it all came together and the kit just WORKED so well for my plan.
