Freaky (it’s been so long!) layout this Friday!


True story: Friday the 13th inspired this layout. You see, I have been working with a (gasp) schedule here on my blog. This is GASP worthy because I’ve always thought a pre-planned blog sounded absolutely the worst. What I’ve discovered is, jotting down notes and making a few plans in advance can help me so much! Brainstorming ideas, planning things out – I’m calling it my “blog assistant” and it has been good.

Take for example, realizing that it’s been over 3 months since I created a scrapbook layout. It’s Friday the 13th. Last week we celebrated 13 years of marriage and had a great (scrapbook worthy) dinner out…

creative bells ring! It’s blog + layout inspiration match in heaven!! Thanks, blog assistant!


This layout is a simple one because I had some issues deciding “what do I even use…” plus 4 photos on 1 page = less space or even need to embellish much.

I love how this turned out – and whether you like ’em spooky or you just ignore the Friday the 13th stuff I hope you’ve enjoyed this layout! Want to see the basic thought process on how I start a layout like this? I’ve got a video for that!

  1. Thanks for sharing your scrapbook process, May. Great layout. You have a beautiful family, pretty girls. I love seeing examples of multiple photo layouts, especially at the 4×6 size. You did an awesome job with the embellishments, and love the touch of gold with the teal washi. Awesome. Michelle t

  2. Thanks May for showing a 6×4 multi layout that’s so doable and for talking about substitutions and what works with a photo heavy page.
