Scrapbook Layout || Today


The layout that I'm sharing today is one that I made probably over a month ago. I was just ITCHING to do something creative, so I got out my newest products (the Dear Lizzy Stargazer collection) and got to playing. I hadn't even touched these products because I bought them right before we moved to our current house and when we moved, we were busy for a while after that. We have remodeled and fixed up a lot of the house and so we had a lot on our plate for a couple of months. I didn't start with any sort of plan for this page-- I just made it up as I went along. 

I bought those GIANT chipboard phrases, not knowing that they were that huge! But, come to find out, I really love the large impact that they give to a page! I mean, look at this! That chipboard word is such an awesome title!

If you think you're seeing a little haze of pink around the layout, it's because I watercolored some light pink around the white background. I thought it needed some more color. :)  You can definitely see the watercolor better in person. 

I did something else very different for this layout-- I journaled AROUND the page! Can't say I've done that in a loooooong time (I've probably done it once or twice before, but not often.). I really love how it turned out! It helped border the page, and I didn't want to put the journaling in one of the blocks on the page because there really wasn't much room for it! 

When is the last time you did something totally different on a project? Using this giant title and journaling around the page were both two very different things for me to try. :)

Very pretty layout and I love the big chipboard title. It does have such a great impact on the page.

I just started scrapping again after taking a few months off from it. I just started to stamp on the page for the title. I love your page. I am going to have to try the journaling the border.
