Welcome to a new week! Today I am sharing some step by step photos from the process of creating another layout using the February kit.
I wanted to document our new routines since Tuva started daycare recently. I had an Instagram photo that I took one evening to capture how I have been carrying her so much. Even if things are going great at daycare, she really shows that she needs to be close when we are back home again. It’s cosy, but it also does complicate things, like cooking for example.
I started out by picking the supplies that I wanted to use.
I knew that I wanted to try to create a layout with lots of white space and with most of the design elements at the top of my page. I cut some strips out of the patterned papers I had picked out.
I moved my photo around and found a placement that I liked. I also picked out one of the pockets and library cards, for my journaling, and I cut one of the cute cameras out (both the camera and the library cards are from the Starring Role add on). I hadn’t glued anything down, at this point.
Next I used the white letter stickers to write “new times, new routines” on the pocket.
I then decided to add some stamping and heat embossing, using the Zing embossing powder in Aqua.
After stamping and embossing I used some double sided tape to glue down the papers and then I added some machine stitching. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep the loose threads, but eventually I decided to cut them off.
I then added the photo, using 3D foam squares, and I also glued down the library card pocket and I added the year “2013″, using the corrugated alpha.
As a final step, I cut two thin strips of patterned paper and added them to the bottom of my page.
My finished layout looks like this.
I hope you’ll have a great week! Happy scrapping!
