This Is So Sweet

I love attending fan conventions, and I have several photos yet to scrapbook. Here’s one of them.

David Tennant and Me

Let’s talk about the layout.

  • I started creating this one at the 2018 Victoria Marie Scrapbook Retreat and finished it this past weekend. I changed the title and added lots of little bits because there can always be more embellishments.
  • The coral letters of the title are from a clear sticker book that I’ve barely touched before now. I need to make sure these get used more often, because the book comes with letters in four different colors! Lots of titles waiting to come to life.
  • Choosing the patterned paper for this layout was tough. Partly because of the blue background of the photo. I’m happy with how things worked out in the end.

There are lots more details behind the creation of this layout. Learn more in my process video.

Thanks so much for watching! Take care.

If He Fits, He Sits

I love creating layouts about my boys. This one features Cupid.

If He Fits, He Sits layout

Let’s talk about the layout.

  • This page started with a different title: It’s Cupid’s House–We Just Live Here. I’m still going to use the title for a page, but it wasn’t quite the right one for this one.
  • The color stripes at the bottom of the patterned paper determined the color scheme of this layout. I am especially fond of the pops of blue.
  • That wood veneer has been languishing in my stash for a while. It’s so nice to finally put it to use. I love how the color matches the background paper.

There are a few surprises in how this layout came together. You can check them out in the process video.
