Game Day

I was in a rare mood to create a layout this weekend, so I quickly pulled out  a kit and got to work. I realized that I miss creating layout, working with a larger format, lots of embellishments, a blank canvas, layouts really speak to my need to be creative, compared to PL where it is mostly story telling focused.

The kit I selected had a lovely geometric stamp, ideal for a unique and customized background pattern. I did opt for Staz-on ink as it is more rich in color and ideal to use with the kraft background.

I love using kraft paper for my background but man oh man it’s hard to photograph!

The design is rather simple, minimal pattern paper, some embellishments and lots of stamping. This is a fun variation of my usual layouts, I feel the I’ve moved on to somewhat a minimal approach when it comes to creating layout.

So there might just be more layouts in my future, or not. I’m currently reassessing my memory keeping plans for 2018 and I’m up in the air and very indecisive about what approach I will follow. Good thing there’s still time!

I've been part of the scrapbook industry for over 10 years. My love of paper started at a very young age when I started hoarding a collection of notepads and fruit scented pens. My love of scrapbooking and memory keeping evolved when I became a mother. Over the course of my creative career, I've had the pleasure of designing for various manufactures; I currently design for Ali Edwards and Gossamer Blue. My style is eclectic with a flair for mixing embellishments, creating layers and a love for white space. As of two years ago, I shifted her creative focus to documenting our family’s daily activities with Project Life.
