And that means there's a new gallery full of inspiration at Write.Click.Scrapbook. This month's theme is layouts without photos. Seeing as I've hardly made any layouts without photos, this was a good challenge for me. I'm not sure why I haven't done more of these pages because I really like the ones I've seen.
I decided to make a page about the common phrases my kids are saying right now, and there are some interesting ones. =) I've wanted to scrap this subject for a few months, so I kept a post it note on my desk and wrote the phrases down that I heard them say most often. Here's what I came up with:
I really wanted these phrases to stand out on the page, so I used the Jillibean kraft mini alphas to contrast with the bright colors. The paper is from the Spotted Owl Soup line, and I created a collage out of some of their kraft tags and journaling sprouts as a background for my title. The yellow letter stickers are also Jillibean Soup. For the embellishments I punched flowers out of various Spotted Owl Soup papers and layered them with some Epiphany Crafts felt flower settings, buttons, and a small epoxy. Tip: I pulled apart the felt flower settings to get more mileage out of them and to mix things up a bit. I like how it turned out. =) .
