Formula for a Great layout - January Forum Game

Recommended Posts

The 5 lines of journalling stressed me out, as did the 6 embellishments! It worked out OK in the end, though. I'm usually too lazy or too impatient to journal much on my pages, so it's good to be forced to once in a while!

Ready for a new week of scrapping? Here's today's task. :)

 

Week Two - Shapes

9th January

 

Start a new layout in your preferred size.
If you scrap 12 x 12 (or any square size), add three RECTANGULAR photos.
If you scrap 8.5 x 11/A4 (or similar), add three SQUARE photos.

I have enough trouble picking one photo and now you want me to pick 3?!?!?!? I guess that's why they are called challenges. lol!! I'm off to look at photos.

Hubby may shoot me, but I found my 3 photos! He says he doesn't like being featured in a layout, but when I stumbled on these 3 photos from last August capturing his fun-loving personality I can't resist scrapping them!

OOohhh, I'm intrigued and can't wait to see!

 

Here's what I've got so far; still working on the long paper strip or circle. Who wrote this game? :D

Lei, those photos of dh are too funny! :)

Marilyn, I can't wait to see your finished layout. The photos are so cute!!!

 

I found my photos: Christmas sweets (of which I ate more than my share). I'll be back later with papers.

Week 2 - #1

 

Starting off a day late, but I'm thinking about my three papers and will try to post later. I don't like playing catch-up.

Not sure if you are going to like this one.

 

6th January

Add FIVE lines of journalling to your layout.

 

I haven't even gotten to this point yet, but I hate it already. Journalling is the hardest part for me. Couldn't you have said one line?????

Found my papers faster than I had expected, though I'm using the white background paper for most of the pages of our 2016 Christmas book, so it was really just the other two I had to search for. papers: JRA Luscious Linens - Air and BMU Wesley's Christmas. By the way, I'm using JOD Dotty Frames for the photos, hoping you'll ask for embellishments some time this week. :)

 

Layout so far:

You always manage to do a good job, though! I'm in final proofing of week 1. Sigh, behind already.

I changed from the striped paper to a solid color towards the end.

Thanks for your comment. It was one of my Twelve Days of Christmas siggies. I think I'll leave it up for now and then create a new one in a few weeks. I had a lot of fun creating the 12 days and I've already got my 12 days ready for next Christmas. Nothing like being prepared.
