I can't believe we're at 21 Days already! Is it just me or is August FLYING by? Welcome back to 31 Pages in 31 Days, my annual blog series focused on all things scrapbooking! Created in conjunction with my annual Scrapbooking Summer School, which runs on four consecutive Thursday nights this month, we are challenging ourselves to get a page per day accomplished in August. You can play along from home, too!
I love today's boy page! I had the Early Espresso background, Just Add Cake Designer Series Papers, and Wild Wasabi all laid out, but it needed more pop. I originally thought yellow, but orange is more up to date, so Pumpkin Pie became the pop! And then by accident a piece of Marina Mist scrap cardstock was lying there and I loved what it added, so that got incorporated into the mix.
My big circles were created using the 3 inch and 3.5 inch circle dies for the Big Shot. I got to work in my new fave scrapbooking accessory, the Chevron punch, and some Candy Dots and a tiny tab of chevron ribbon as embellishments. The Hexagon punch made a cute tab for the top of the main photo mat. I finished it off with a sentiment from the adorable Yippee-Skippie stamp set in Marina Mist ink. Here's the rest of the sayings in that set. I think they're hilarious!
This layout can hold three to four photos depending on the size and how many of the circles you fill with journaling, or just one really special picture. I love to create versatile layouts for class, that can work for any number of photos. It makes it even easier for my attendees to quickly finish their pages off with photos and journaling when they get home from class.
