Hi, I have another Pick-a-Product layout for you today :) For this layout I wanted to tell the story of Derek's binky + blankie. Both are a BIG part of his life right now and it's hard to get photos of him around the house without one of the two making an appearance. I decided to play with May's This Life Noted kit for Scraptastic that I helped to design. Technically it is more geared toward project life, but I wanted to show that it is versatile and can totally be used on traditional layouts!
I started by going through the kit and picking out a handful of things I might use that would work in telling the story (above). Then I narrowed it down from there based on color, sticking with gray, turquoise, and yellow. Below is what I came up with.
I used the stencil/ mask that came with the kit to paint the yellow dots behind the photo. Then I just went with a variety of die-cuts and some letter stickers. I think the little die-cuts are my favorite part of these kits! Incidentally I didn't end up choosing any of the elements I helped design :)
A little journaling in the bottom corner and ta-da, all done! Again limiting myself as far as supplies go, has helped me create a layout I am happier with and completed in probably half the time :)
