Aimee's "Frame It" Layout

Hey everyone, it’s Aimee!

 Today I have an 8.5x11 layout for you!

 Do you ever have an idea for a layout and then you make and it doesn’t turn out how you thought? Well I do that ALL the time. But this layout I ended up LOVING.


 When I started this layout that’s exactly what happened. I instantly knew when I saw the “Be True to You” 12x12 Paper, that I wanted to frame little photos in all the frames. And that’s exactly what I did.


 First, I cut the 12x12 paper down to 8.5x11 {that’s my go to size for layouts these days}. I then used an Xacto knife to cut out the frames that were still whole, so I could back them with photos.

 I measured and printed 7 little photos, and backed my paper with said photos. And the layout was moving right along just the way I wanted. But I knew it needed dimension. SO, I decided to use puffy alphas to write stuff in the frames, AND I just didn’t like it. Now what?


 I grabbed the Variety Pack and pulled out 4 of the color blocked hearts, and stapled them inside frames.

Ok now the layout is coming along, but I need more.

I am not a huge sticker user. I love them, I just don’t use them very often. I got the sticker sheet out and started putting the word strips and hearts and stars in the frames. And guess what.


I simply dated the layout with a date roller stamp and used some glitter glue on some of the frames.


 Now I was hoping you wouldn’t notice but I have to come clean. My paper is upside down.

Yep that’s right. See the squiggly frames? They have hearts in them and they are upside down. Oopsie! Once I noticed it was too late and I just went with it!

Have you ever noticed a boo boo in the middle of a layout and just kept going???

XOXO Aimee
