Only got back from our vacation on Tuesday but it feels like it was weeks ago. I’ve been running around playing catch-up in lots of areas of my life. I had some commitments in terms of scrapbooking for the teams I’m on. I did no scrapbooking while we were away we didn’t have room to bring my laptop.
The July Simple Scrapper Premium Membership templates layouts for the July downloads were due. So I decided to create a couple of pages for my all about me album using pictures from our trip. I may use these pictures again in my trip album but I don’t worry about using pictures twice if I’m using them for a different purpose in terms of the story behind the layout.
All Supplies Chelle’s Creations (Yeehaw Bundle)
Note that one of these layout is an 8.5 by 11 layout. I have page protectors of all sizes in that album and it looks great. It provides a different look to the album and it doesn’t stress me. If you don’t like that you could always convert a template to a 12 by 12 layout if your using a template like this.
Chelle’s Creations also had a release on Thursday which I needed to get a layout done for. Her release was some great collage templates. I love this type of template as I always have so many pictures I want to include on my layouts and these are a perfect solution – I will using them a lot.
As I had my SD card from my camera out I decided to do another layout using my pictures from our vacation. My layout features the pictures I took of some jellyfish. I got my love of these sea creatures from my mother and whenever I see them I feel closer to her. I used Chelle’s Templates to create the right side of the layout and then blended two more pictures into the paper to create the left side. I was really happy with the results and will add this layout to my all about me album as well.
Don’t you love these!
I’ve done a couple more layouts today but I’ll save them for a later post.
Have a great weekend. July tomorrow don’t forget!
