This one took about two hours, of course factor into that time that I was watching TV so I was not fully focused on my scrapbooking at all times. The results? Oh, I LOVE this one!! I had that “memories” silhouette cut from a friend (she was nice enough to make me some!) sitting here and it just fit in perfectly.
The really great news is: another one done! Stories told, photos preserved, and of course a few more of my project life olive edition cards used up as well. I am still LOVING those!
On this page I went wild coloring in Lawn Fawn sea critter stamps – so fun to add them in as a finishing touch! I also used some Elle’s Studio new goodies, Freckled Fawn stars, and a few Amy Tangerine stickers among other tidbits on this page.
This is my first Project Hawaii layout that you’re seeing here on my blog, but it is in fact my third completed. It’s going REALLY well just adhering to cardstock background like a layout too. I’m sticking with the “just under 4″ for one side of every photo. meaning – one side of EVERY photo on this page is 3 3/4. This means I always have an easy time lining photos up and rearranging elements. Sometimes I ended up cropping off more of the width or height as needed of course- it just depends!
I relied heavily on my notebook for this one – I was glad to have it as well because I had forgotten that we were the ONLY people there for about the first hour, and that all said and done we only stayed about 2hrs because it was so tiny, we’d seen it all twice, and we were just done! It’s a good reminder that taking notes in the moment, even just jotting down tidbits and story ideas someplace is so fantastic s a scrapbooker’s resource. I know I’m grateful for mine and I will definitely be working on writing more in the future as well.
Another week, another edition of Project Hawaii and I can’t wait to start the next one – I might make another today in fact! They’re such fun and taking up the entire space of the page is such a different way to scrapbook for me – I’m enjoying that tremendously.
Speaking of wanting to start – Field Guide starts tomorrow!! I had someone ask me about offering it as a self-paced class later. Well, it *IS* self paced! You can go at any speed you like, in any order you like, and you have the materials FOREVER ACCESS meaning after the 12 weeks done new content ends, but the materials remain for you to use as a resource and keep working! This is the final offering of Field Guide so if you’re on the fence feel free to shoot me any questions you’ve got. I’m so excited to dive into this class!
