design team gallery, today I'll be focusing on the second one, a "day in the life" approach to scrapbooking that I return to periodically. This layout features a go-to grid design that has served me well!
That's just what I did when the twelfth rolled around this month. I started snapping pics in the morning, capturing the morning commute, and throughout the day, I kept my camera close at hand and in my line of sight, making sure to take a few photos here and there. A camera isn't even necessary at times -- I even included a screen shot of the pins that I pinned that day.
After deciding which of the twelve photos I wanted to use, I cropped them into squares, resized them to 2" x 2", and arranged them in a grid in Photoshop before printing.
After printing and trimming the photos, I matted each one with patterned squares from the Papercrafting Kit. I then used a white pen and a ruler to draw lines on a piece of red ombre paper from the kit. After drawing the lines, I backed each row of photos with long strips of patterned paper, and then I added stitching.
Each photo has a tiny number (taken from the now sold-out Historian Kit) added to it, corresponding to the numbers in the journaling. After each number is a description of the photo.
Included in the journaling block is the title of the layout, abbreviated since "September" was a bit too ambitious a title for this layout. I altered the cream-colored alphabets from the kit by running a neon yellow ink dauber over them, and dabbing away any excess with a paper towel.
I then attached the metal camera clip, using the coil on it to call attention to the day of the week, Thursday. I also circled the number "12" on the calendar card and stamped the date. My stamp was a little temperamental at first, so I just repeatedly stamped the date to cover up the fact that the "2" in "12" did not appear the first time I stamped. Play through -- that's my scrappy motto!
