Last week, I shared 11 cards I created as part of my Use It or Lose It campaign, which is aimed at helping me keep my studio more orderly. Today, I have two layouts I designed from the same Crate Paper Storyteller scraps.
When I set out to create the layouts, I didn't have a photo or theme in mind. I simply stitched and glued down bits of paper and minimal embellishments until I liked the foundation. Later, I found photos to include and added title work, journaling and more embellishments to come up with the finished layouts below.
RIGHT NOW | This layout has some journaling about a few things going on right now in my life (mostly good). Things are changing. While it seems like the changes are happening quickly, at times it doesn't seem quick enough, so I documented some thoughts on this layout. I'll share more details here soon.
The photo of me was taken at Joshua Tree National Park, during a recent visit with my sister and her kids. I have a whole album on that trip in progress!
HOME | You may recall seeing this image in my June Project Life. I love the photo so much that I decided to do a layout about it. The little arrow is pointing to a grouping of trees, which is my childhood home and still my parents home. I was able to snap this photo on my phone after departing from Omaha Eppley, as I returned from my visit (back in May/June). My journaling reflects a few sentiments about their farm.
I'm really happy with both of the final layouts and love that I used scraps and leftover papers to create them. I'm looking forward to creating more cards and pages with the Sassafras scraps from my July Project Life (images coming soon)!
