Weekly layout – week thirty three

Welcome to week thirty three.

A couple of photographs of Gav and my sister when we celebrated their birthdays a couple of years ago for this week s layout.

I was thinking blue and pink you know, boys and girls so found a few papers I liked.

Then a few other supplies.

I set the photos out on the background and played about with the papers.

Somewhere along the way that narrow strip of blue got worked into the mix and I liked the way it made the page look – leaving that gap of pink.

I settled on the one I liked and started to adhere the elements together. The thought of loosing that whole background sheet under the rest of the papers was too much so I cut the middle out.

You know me I hate waste!

Once I was happy with the main pieces I thought about embellishments. I inked the edges of a big star die cut and put a ‘G’ on it.

Then I stamped a few words onto the pink card. The alphas are from a Hero Arts stamp set and I love that they are so teeny.

I did the same with a smaller star but used my sisters initial this time and added a few more stars and a word I had stamped and cut out. The strip of die cut border finished of the group of embellishments.

I added the title a few more star brads in that lovely pale blue and a couple of red bling stars and we were done.

I have just realised I forgot to add the journalling! I was checking the actual date of the party we had for them and then forgot to write the story on the page……

Hey ho.

I seem to be doing a lot of these triangle shapes – it’s a fail safe for design isn’t it? Anyway I like it and once I add the story it will be complete.


Weekly Layout is a series of blog posts that I am doing every week in 2012. I am walking through the process of putting the page together with a bit of background to why I picked the design and embellishments for the page. I hope to develop my style and push myself by taking on this challenge. You can see previous weeks here.
