Aloha My Scrappy Friends!!
It’s February and I am finally starting to get my stuff in order. Finally. After being sick for a week, my husband working long hours all month, and just getting back into the groove after the holidays. I can say I am starting to get into what seems like a routine that is going to work for me, for now.
One of my big goals this year is to use up as many of my scraps as possible. I have been on a really big spending freeze the past 5 or so months. I want to use this freeze wisely and actually use up the stash I have let pile up. Like all those bits and pieces left over from old layouts I have made.
Last year I started a series where I used my scraps to make layouts. I used different types of inspiration to give me a jumping off point. I am trying out that series again.
In this layout I just made I looked through my scraps for pieces that had a love feel to them. I knew I wanted to scrap some old wedding photos. It was my 10 year wedding anniversary at the end of December and what a fun way to go down memory lane a bit than make some layouts.
(I actually ended up making two layouts with all the scraps I set aside. I will share photos from layout in another blog post.)
Here are some close up pictures of my finished layout.
I love this layered look for the title. I took bits and pieces and layered them together. Them added some thickers to finish out the title.
I kept this really simple. Focusing on getting scraps used up, and layering them nicely. I even fussy cut those hearts out of a scrap of Bella Blvd patterned paper.
I added more hearts up at the top, to continue the theme of love throughout the whole layout.
Finishing up with some gold and pink Heidi Shine just ties the whole layout together. I love the way it looks, scattered on the embellishments and the photos.
Here is the finished layout. I finished the journaling later, and added it to the back. I really wanted the photos to be the focal point. We e is the process video so young but so in love. And maybe a tad hungry too. It was fun to go back and take a look at all my old wedding photos after ten years.
Here is the process video for this layout. You can watch below and hear a bit of my thought process while I was putting this layout together.
I hope you are inspired! Inspired to go searching through your scraps and make something fun, beautiful and meaningful.
Have a great week!!
