Layout Share and GIVEAWAY!5:30 AM
Happy Tuesday, everyone! It's an especially happy one for me--I have the day off tomorrow! I will definitely be scrapping!
First of all, I am excited to say that I have another giveaway today, with some more fun stuff I got at Tuesday Morning!
|A good blogger would have taken this photo with a real camera instead of a phone. Whoops!|
If you'd like to enter, please leave a comment letting me know if you like to read personal posts, purely scrappy posts, or a mixture of both If you would like extra credit (aka, an extra entry), I'd love to know what type of personal posts you like to read (marriage, paleo lifestyle/recipes, living on a budget, our everyday life/adventures, etc.). If you are following me on Google Connect (see side bar of blog), let me know and I will enter you two more times! The giveaway is open through Sunday, September 22nd, and I will announce the winner shortly after!
I also have a pair of layouts to show you today. The first is the layout I was working on in my Scrappy Blog Tour post. I added embellishments and the finishing touches!
|One + One = Us|
I'm actually very happy with the way this turned out, purely based on the color scheme. I absolutely love the Basic Grey Grand Bazaar collection, and regret not getting more than the 6"x 6" pad! I think the colors are absolutely stunning, and so unique. Let's be honest, had I purchased more, I probably wouldn't have used it. Is't that the way it goes? This layout was inspired by the wood title (a gift from my awesome friend Lisa). I wanted it to be the focus of the page, and I thought the photo strips balanced it out nicely. The patterned paper design was inspired by a row of colored pencils I saw somewhere (probably Pinterest). To create the bordered design, I drew a curve on the bottom with a pencil, and one that mirrored it on the top. I cut strips all the same width (about 1/2"), and adhered them to the page, using the drawn curves as a guideline. I can't wait to try this with other shapes and lengths!

My second layout primarily uses Crate Paper notes & Things (with a dash of Maggie Holmes). I cut out several different shapes from kraft paper using my Cameo. I played around with the combinations and placement, until I decided on the circles (from the Silhouette Store) and heart border (from The Cut Shoppe). I tried using multiple pictures, and a different arrangement of frames, until I decided on these four. I actually like how it's a spin on the traditional grid! I was pretty pumped about the "Happy Life" frame from the original Maggie Holmes collection. I've been saving that one for something special, and I love how that coordinates so will with Notes & Things! Three cheers for Crate Paper collections and their coordinating magic!!
