Layout making process

Sometimes when I'm working on a page, I like to snap picture of my process. And today I decided to share it with you. I love to see the scrapbooking process of other people too. You can scroll down to see a completed page.

I started by making a background of two different pieces of paper - together they make 12x12:

Added a piece of pattern paper to the top portion to cover white space leaving just a white border:
Added another piece of lighter blue paper (not shown) and glued 4 pictures each a little less then 3x6 to white cardstock:

Added another strip of white cardstock to hold my 2x2 pictures:


I ordered a 4x6 photo collage (with a design in mind), cut photo into two strips of photos - this way I don't have to worry about cutting them to the exact size (one of my favorite design tips):

and added them to the page:

Another great tip, this one I learned from Becky Higgins - place word stickers on a ruler before placing them on a page. This way you can see where exactly you want to see them or make sure they are aligned straight:

When I picked these light grey stickers for my title I knew I needed a dark background for them to standout, that's when I decided to add a brown strip of paper. Here is a look at at the finished page:
That was one of those layouts that I had to0 many pictures to share and no specific story. I do have some stories from Canada and will be sharing some of them soon. We came from Canada with over 400 pictures, so you'll see a lot of those.

  4. I was so inspired to scrapbook that I thought I'll do twenty pages today. Well, Alena made me go for 6.5 miles - that took some time, plus recovery... Anyway, yes my pictures are being picked along with colors and some other details.
    Hope yours are happening too.
