Please head over to the blog to see what the rest of my team did with this.
I confess to cheating a tiny bit on this layout. I started with one of the pages I'd pre-planned for my Disney album! (Insert sheepish grin here!) When I say I'd pre-planned my page, I'd used Shimelle Lain's ideas from her "The Perfect Collection" class from True Scrap 3 (you can purchase it and other classes from True Scrap 3 here). She talked about taking a kit (either from a Kit Club or one you'd put together yourself for a specific project) and cutting the papers into various sized boxes straight away. Sounds scary I know but there is a method to her madness! Once the papers are cut up you create several base layouts - both single pages and double page spreads - and then all that's left is to add your pictures, embellishments and journaling. Before you know it you've got a pile of completed pages!
I was dithering over what to scrap for this sketch and in the end had to give myself a swift kick in the you know what and just get something DONE! Pre-made pages to the rescue! I felt the design of this was a good match to the sketch and then went from there.
The flower here was made using some of the paper streamers the girls collected on this day. I used an extra large glue dot and just twisted and wrapped until it was covered. The brad finishes it off and is also handy for keeping stray ends in check.
I used lots of these word stickers on this and the stars were from my buddy Lain!
There wasn't a ton of space to journal but I managed to fit the basics on. If I want to add more at another time I can add a 6x12 insert or something.
While I technically did not use anything from my inventoried stash (yes, I am keeping track of all the papers I'm using up this year!) it still feels incredibly good to get one more Disney layout done. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will play along this week - remember there is a $40 GC to Artful Delight up for grabs this month.
