Hello! Valerie here with you today. It's New Year's Eve! Can you believe it?! Another year in the books. I truly feel like this year just flew by. I know we all say that every year, but seriously….where did 2013 go?
I have a layout for you today. I took a single 12 x 12 layout and summed up our entire year with fourteen of my favorite photos and a simple list of some positive highlights and even a couple negatives from our year.
Supplies:Cut and Paste-Adorbs: "Be" Like paper, "Story" enamel shapes, "Hello" decorative brads, "Loved" decorative buttons "Story" enamel shapes, Hello" decorative brads,"Loved" decorative buttons; Cut and Paste- Charm:"Carefree" label stickers,"Sweet" tiny word stickers; Cut and Paste-Flair: "Small" enamel shapes, "Small" decorative brads;Cut and Paste-Presh: "Good Times" decorative buttons; Find Your Wings and Fly :alpha and word stickers; Collectable-Memorable: "I'm With" enamel dots; Misc: Silhouette Cameo and blue cardstock
I started with the Adorbs "Be" Like patterned paper from the Cut & Paste collection. I think this might be one of my most favorite patterns in the whole collection. I used a brayer to spread a thin layer of gesso in the area where I would be placing my photos to subdue the bright colors a bit. The zig zag pattern creates the perfect lines for running a list down the side of the page—another reason this paper was chosen.
My photos are arranged in no particular order, and my list is like that too. Not every item in my list has a photo that matches up with it. The title was cut with my Silhouette Cameo using the font Howser.
I embellished the layout with a variety of enamel dots, enamel shapes, decorative brads, and decorative buttons from the Cut & Paste collection. Those big enamel shapes are so much fun.
Happy New Year everyone!
