Hello everyone! Is it the first of June already? As we are approaching mid-year, we should remember to hang in there in our lives and keep our smile! That’s the title of my scrapbook layout today!
I created a simple layout:
I printed a collage photo – where the photos are 2″x2″ so you actually have six photos in a regular 4×6 photo. I just use 4 of those photos and adhered it onto a photo mat and included it in my layout. I felt I need to remember to smile and hang in there as life tends to sometimes gets difficult and stressful.
Recently I am scrapbooking about myself a lot and I think it’s important. Being able to document the phase I am currently in, life experiences and what’s going on at the moment since I mostly scrapbook for myself anyway. It would be like a journal, just in the form of 12×12 scrapbook layouts.
I kept the background of the layout clean and white. Just as I felt the need some clear space in my life, reflected onto my layout to have that white space. I embellished my layout with those beautiful “print&cut” butterflies and flourishes from the May/spring collection from Wilna on iheartstudio.
I like to overlap these alphabet stickers for a more fun look. I added foam dots to the butterflies and flourishes and my photo mat for more a more raised dimensional look.
I also added some gem stickers for extra bling on my layout.
