Hello Friends. It’s Anna here with my newest page made with pretty “Unforgettable” collection. This page is really unique for me and I will explain you why. Usually, when I make a layout, it takes me about 3 hours to finish it. I am a slow scrapbooker. I start with choosing proper papers going through all of my stash few times. Next step is finding out how many pictures I am going to use and how to arrange them. I am thinking about composition, title and whether I should use a cut file or not. I change my mind few times, swap papers, try different alignment. When all the decisions are done, it still takes me at least hour to pick all the embellishments and glue everything down. And this page came together within 10 minutes!!! Yes, it only took me that long (or short :).
It’s all thanks to the pretty paper with wreath called “Garland“. It determined the composition, the background, lack of cut file and placement of the photo. All I needed to do was to glue down the picture with a layer of “Unscripted” paper under it and start embellishing.
I didn’t want to cover all the pretty wreath so I only chose few flowers from ephemera pack and glued them around the photo. I also picked few smaller ones and mounted them around the wreath to add some dimension. Cute bow from “Bows and tassels” is a perfect match for the little girl on the photo. This page isn’t telling any story so my title doesn’t have any meaning. I used “hello” word from word title stickers.
Last step was adding few butterflies cut out from “Lacewing” paper. I have to be honest – I had a bunch of them cut out prior to making the page. I like to keep my hands busy while watching TV so I just fussy cut a whole sheet of them in advance. So it definitely shorten up the process of making a whole page. I finished making this layout with few enamel dots here and there and splashed everything with pink and blue mists.
I just love clever papers and this wreath pattern is definitely one of them. How long does it takes for you to finish a layout? What is your time record in making a page?
That is all for today. Thank you for stopping by and see you in February.
