Today I'm sharing my February layouts for Simple Scrapper. As a newbie on their design team, I've been very welcomed by the other design team members. I love a good sketch and these layouts were all made using the sketches in the premium membership at Simple Scrapper.
I love collages of photos. I like single page layouts but I like to include a lot of pictures. This sketch was an opportunity to use a whole bunch of iphone photos to tell my story.
I love the background paper here and have been hoarding it for ages. I love me a little Amy Tangerine. A fun little title using a variety of different letters made for a great focal point in the middle. But, my fav new thing is that little 'cheer' button from Ormolu. Love.
This layout is about Baby Liam's first Christmas parade. It was fun except for the fact that we nearly froze to death. But Liam enjoyed himself and that's what counts!
The layout below came together seamlessly. It was initially for two 4 by 6 photos but I crammed 9 little photos in there in place of one of them. A few simple embellishments hanging like ornaments and a simple title summed up the page nicely.
The pictures taken in this layout were taken on New Year's Eve. Allison & Paul wanted some family photos so I set up the camera and just started snapping. Babies are funny you know! You have to get a lot of outtakes before you get the perfect shot! But the outtakes are the funniest! Check out those outtakes-tey go from 'Oh I'm such a happy baby' to 'I've had just about enough of this' to ' Get me out of here!". Too funny!
The layout below was a little different than the original February sketches. This month's assignment where I had to use more pictures than the sketch indicated. Originally the sketch had four pictures-I managed to get 14 in there. If you are a Simple Scrapper Premium Member you can find this sketch in the April 2011 archives.
There's lots of misting here in a number of different colors. I used an old SC kit from over the summer that had the perfect colours for this layout. I love that simple title on the banner. Turns out I have a thing for banners lately!
We took a little trip to Florida in early September in between a wedding engagement and a bat mitzvah. We managed to squeeze some serious shopping, sight seeing and eating into those short few days and had a wonderful time in the warm weather!
