For years I have read blogs of other crafters and I’ve seen them say over and over again how easy it is to create a layout from your blog posts. Never before have I found that truer than it was today. I simply copy & pasted my 31 things birthday list from Tuesday into Word and printed it out (font is Travelling Typewriter), trimmed them up and started adhering them.
I chose my 2 favorite papers from the Arendal Scrapbook kit and the black and white triangle page is the back of one of the Carolina Moon (May? June? last year) kit.
I kept ordering extras of the Cirque Project Life kit (I think I ended up with 3 or 4) as it was my favorite kit of last year, so I had a bunch of these little rubber FEB banners hanging around. It seems a little incongruous on the layout without the context of my aqua album. Aqua is a neutral for me this year, it will always match (yes!).
Here is the facing page, I struggle to make 2 project life spreads work together sometimes, and an easy fix to that is to face a PL spread with a matching layout (I do this a lot….) I used my own february number card on the left with a few photos printed with my Instax Share printer that Excellent Husband purchased for me.
One last close up. Arendal was SUCH a great kit, I hope the next one is as good!
