I've got a new Q&A video up! Another question from my friend Lauren.... please please please leave some comments with questions so I can continue to do these videos! I really enjoy sitting and thinking about my answers and sharing them with you.
I mentioned earlier this month that I have some Gossamer Blue layouts that are a mix of March and April kits, so here's another! If you haven't killed those March kits I think you'll find that they pair perfectly with the April products.
This layout is unique for me in that it has 4 photos and I did the paper piecing and title at an angle. I never do angles! There have been quite a few pages that have caught my eye lately, especially from Missy Whidden, who does an angle like a pro.
I just started cutting strips of March and April papers and laying them out on the background paper from the April kit. I like the punches of color from the March papers against the more subtle papers in April.
I used several embellishments from the April Planner kit, and the title is a mix of April Thickers and March alphas.
I sewed through the wood veneer with my machine, hand-cranking the needle just to be safe.
I contemplated sewing down all the paper strips but felt like it would have been lost on this layout. It also saved me a ton of time ;)
I have another process video below and on my YouTube channel HERE. This time I shared some thoughts while working in my Traveler's Notebook, and hopefully I give you some pointers for yours.
I used embellishments from Gossamer Blue's April kits along with Crate Paper Oasis collection + some washi from my stash.
I don't think I could enjoy working in TN's more than I already do. It's a fast process for me, and such an easy way to document daily life. I'm not sure if I would quit doing 12x12 pages and work solely in TN's, but I have to say doing these little notebooks makes me just as happy as a full layout. I know a few girls who aren't doing 12x12's anymore and it's something I really do think about.... but for now I'll keep this as my weekly, chronological memory keeping.
It's another Q&A session with me! I'm answering questions from my friend Lauren about choosing photos for my layouts and scrapping chronologically.....
(No. No to scrapping chronologically!)
I'm having such fun doing the Q&A videos, please submit some questions so I can keep this going! If you would like to do your own Q&A video, give me a shout out and I'll help you get it all ready to go.
I have a few layouts this month that are a mix of March and April kits from Gossamer Blue. First up is this fun Yay! layout.
Funny story: I actually started this layout last month and completely forgot about it. HAHA! The cut file is from Paper Issues and I really wanted to use it with the fun paper from Shimelle's latest line. And I guess I just forgot I had it because I went to pull out my March GB kits and there it was!
I added some embellishments from the April kits to finish up this page, including the phrase stickers and some of the chipboard.
The wood veneer has some Heidi Shine, it's an exclusive from the April Main kit.
I find the phrase stickers from Maggie Holmes work for most every layout. Love how versatile they are.
After school drop off it hit me that, like my friend Andrea, I could do a Q&A and make myself more approachable for those in the scrapbook world. So here it is, the intro to my question and answer segment!
The Gossamer Blue March Kits are a ton of alpha stickers, perfect for longer titles or adding in tons of little details.
This layout uses two of the alpha sticker sets from the Shimelle sticker book in the Main Kit. I added the title on two of the journaling stickers to help them stand out from the background patterned paper, then I machine-stitched through them for more detail.
The background consists of two patterned papers adhered to cardstock with a branding strip covering where they intersect. I also sewed the branding strip with my machine, then added a banner from more Shimelle stickers with even more sewing.
The photo area has more stickers and stitching, and I included a GB exclusive planner clip on the photo.
I added some journaling below the photo, which includes where Sprinkle came from and how I ended up babysitting ;)
