Happy Friday! Who's glad that the weekend is finally here? Today I'm excited to share a brand-spankin' new layout with you that is all about weekend fun on a girl's trip to New Orleans, created with the new Shine On collection* from American Crafts and Amy Tangerine!
Supplies | American Crafts: The Good Life paper ("weekend" circle), Surrounded by Love paper (hearts), Even Out paper (border strips), Alive paper (pink and black pattern), Three Sides paper (black and white), Remember paper (camera), 6" x 6" paper pad, Twilight foam alphabet Thickers, ephemera die-cuts, chipboard accent Thickers, mini inflated hearts, sticker book, 6" ruler stencil, Detail Doodlers pens; Elle's Studio: Mini Dated Stamp, July 2018 Kit
I wanted to create a layout with circles, as I was inspired by this layout featured on @mefunscrapt's Instagram feed, and realized that it had been a LONG time since I had cut out circles! I started grabbing Shine On 12" x 12" and 6" x 6" patterned papers, and used my old Creative Memories circle cutter to cut them out. The "weekend" circle from The Good Life paper was the paper that inspired my title, and I found the Kraft tag in the ephemera die-cuts to add the word "view" using the Twilight foam alphabet Thickers
What originally began as a two-photo page, turned into a one-photo layout, since I could not cover up the photo-bomber on the second photo well enough, and it didn't add anything to the story, and editing the number of photos actually left me with more space for a cute journaling tag from the Elle's Studio July 2018 Kit anyway! I topped this with a fussy-cut camera, another circle of paper and the cutest pink mini inflated heart!
I went completely "off the cuff" with this layout, and filmed a process video while creating it! In it, you'll see how I struggled to cover up that photo-bomber, the other ways I tried to make my title work, as well as how I added my typed journaling to my journaling tag, leaving room for that cute camera. Take a look at how it all came together:
