In a previous blog post, I shared how much I love the pre-planned layout designs that come with the Workshops Your Way kit, and I shared the pictures of the layouts as they are created by Close To My Heart. But I always like to share the layouts I actually create because sometimes I make changes, and I like to share close-up pictures.
So today I'm sharing my three two-page 12x12 layouts that I created with the Some Kinda Wonderful scrapbooking kit.
(faces were blurred for privacy)
I made the first layout pretty much exactly like the one in the directions. I love the fun papers, and with this design there was plenty of places for pictures!
I changed the background paper for this layout because I wasn't really fond of the eyes paper that supposed to be used for this layout. I had some retired Cotton Candy cardstock, and I thought that went pretty well with the other colors, so I used it for the background instead. Also, I switched up the embellishments on the left side of the page. Instead of using the set of eyelashes in the Raspberry square, I used the "&" symbol and stamped the words "you" and "me." Close To My Heart provides you with plenty of leftover embellishments, so it's normally not a problem to find something else that will work!
This layout turned out to be my favorite! I had no idea what pictures I was going to use for this layout, but as I was looking through my pictures, I found these three and they were perfect! The bright colors in the pictures go perfectly with this paper without overpowering it, and I can't wait to tell the story that goes with them.
