As it turns out, the layout I shared yesterday is a huge hit! Even though I’ve experienced a negative in my life by losing pictures due to a technical malfunction, its still a positive. Sometimes, its just all in the way you look at things. (Which, more often than not, is a major personal struggle for me). Its a good lesson to learn!
And, as it turns out, there will be more layouts heading your way in the future that don’t have pictures in them. I remembered that I kept a bunch of paraphernalia from our last trip to Las Vegas (which I happen to be scrapbooking right now), and I wanted to make some layouts using that. Since I don’t have pictures to coordinate with the paraphernalia I kept, I’m creating them without! (The first one is my boarding pass; the second one- and more importantly- is Burgr. That is all I’ll say right now).
Do you create very often with journaling cards? Are you a project lifer, or do you use the PL cards in different ways? I’m a mixture of both. I like doing the occasional Picture My Life layout (CTMH’s version of PL), but more often, I like using them in my traditional scrapbooking. The layout I’m sharing today is just that type of layout.
I used some journaling cards that I had left over out of the CTMH Charlotte paper packet. I trim the ones I don’t use down, and store them in a little container along with all my other PML and Project Life inspired cards. (I don’t own any official PL cards). I thought the Charlotte ones worked well for this layout of my daughters’ lovey. Both daughters have had their own lovey’s since they were babies. The ones they have currently they’ve had since they were probably about 3 years old. They’ve lasted the longest! (Meaning we haven’t lost them yet!)
I inked the edges of the white card stock to try and eat up some of the blatant white space, and then inked a piece of scrap Forever & Always patterned paper for some depth. I’m loving this color palette- so fresh and bright! A pop of black doesn’t hurt, either!
