On Friday we chose a new letter for the weekly ABC challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper, and the new letter is N, and N is for numbers! This week we are asking members of the group to introduce numbers into their layouts, in any way they want! They can refer to a date, age, just random numbers as embellishments… anything!
So for my layout I decided to do a Top Ten of my favourite albums for my Book of Me (I will also be doing a Top Ten favourite films and another about TV shows at some point), and I must say that I love how the layout turned out! Here it is:
I picked a selection of pattern papers from some 6×6 pads and cut two stars with each pattern, one big and one small. I sued glittery thickers for my numbers and I also used other thickers for part of my title. I also stamped on my title, however, I think I am going to cover up the “of all time” with little alpha stickers as I am not too keen on how those little stamps look.
And here’s a close up:
Thanks for popping by today and read you very soon!
I had a bit of time for a layout earlier, and since I was also home alone, I decided to make a video! The layout it’s based on the single page sketch for Stick it Down, and I had lots of fun making it!
I used papers from Shimelle’s first collection and other Shimelle embellishments from other collections and I am so happy with how it’s turned out! Here it is:
I had a tiny accident when splattering the black Heidi Shine, and I smeared a tiny bit in the circle embellishment, however I managed to clean it a bit. You can still see it, but not too noticeable.
And here are a couple of closeups:
And I made a YouTube process video! Here it is:
Thanks for visiting today and hopefully see you very soon!
Today’s layout has been made using Stuck? Sketches August 1st sketch. It is a lovely sketch and the layouts by the design team are truly inspiring!
This is my layout:
I used the “Just be you” collection by Echo Park Paper. I have only used this collection in one other layout and I thought it was time to get it out again!
Something that bothered me a lot about this layout is that I don’t remember the date when these photos were taken! I know it was a special date, like an anniversary but I have no idea of which year! So it could be 2008, before we got married, or it could be 2010 for our first wedding anniversary… Not sure! I have been looking at other photos to see if I have my hair in a similar style, so I can recognise the date, but it’s proving difficult! Unfortunately the date stamp in the digital photos is wrong (it says 01.01.2008), so I’m so gutted! Hopefully, Jon will be able to help me figure it out and then I can add the date under the stamped word “Lyndhurst”.
Here are a couple more close ups:
Thanks so much for visiting today and read you very soon!
I am guest designing today for Pause Dream Enjoy challenges blog. I was given a few choices of themes for my project and I chose “School Zone“. I thought it was perfect for the twins new “graduation” photos!
I have made a process video too, so please have a watch if you fancy!
Here’s my layout and video:
Thanks for visiting and read you very soon!
It is not quite the end of the month, but I know I am not going to be making much more before August arrives, so I thought I would get my Layout Lookback video done today 🙂 July wasn’t as busy as May (I don’t think I’ll get another busy month like that again!) but I still managed quite a few layouts.
Here they all are:
Read you very soon!
