"Happy Easter 2012" layout

I can't believe we are days away from Christmas. It feels like December just went by fast. How are you guys feeling about Christmas coming up at the end of this week? 

This next layout is a double page spread (yehey!) and it was based off of a sketch from ScrapMuch? blog


I gotta say, i'm loving double page spreads lately. For some reason I'm super excited about them. I think it's a combination of being able to document events in my family and having a bigger canvas to create/play with.

I recently got the Heidi Swapp "happy" die and used it as part of my title. The title originally was cut out of just plain green cardstock and I felt like it needed some "umph" to stand out. So I cut out the same word from fun foam and then adhered it under the green cut out. It created my "diy" thickers title.

I like printing my photos small since I do them in batches and I don't ever know far in advance what kind of design I will be using for that specific layout. If I were to do it all over again, I would probably print these out a bit bigger, maybe 3x4 so that the photos had more real estate in my layout.

I had these white doiles but it was getting lost with the white flowers so I misted it red (Tattered Angels Candy apple)

I love these KI Memories stickers that I got at Tuesday Morning. They are so fun and makes for quick titles or subtitles.

This page is a cut apart sheet from a Christmas line from Basic Grey (Juniper Berry) but I wanted to use it as a journaling block on this Easter page. So I covered the Christmas sentiment on the top with my photo. No one will ever be the wiser (insert wink here)

So there you have it. Thanks again for stopping by.

Till next time,
Grace
