This first was the last page I made with a January kit, so I supplemented with stash quite a bit. I set the patterned paper block high on the pages, supported by strips, tape and twine. The journaling card and title spilled over into the white space below. Here's the details:
Next is maybe my favorite page, one I did to (finally!) record my Week-in-the-life last fall. I never take many photos when I do this--I forget when I am working--but this was still a snapshot of my life, so I recorded it. I made each photo 2.5 squared, making an embellishment square to fill out the grid. The block I set flush to the top and did the rest--title, journaling, embellishments--below.
About that label sticker: It is there only because I messed up the sewing underneath. Heh.
Next is the page I made to record my One Little Word for this year, Play. I did a few things differently here:
- I used many pieces of patterned paper for the block.
- I set it flush on the bottom.
- I added a few strips of the same patterned paper on the top for balance.
- I kept the journaling on a card within the block.
Here it is:
Next is a simpler page that I turned on its side: This time I ran the block vertical instead of horizontal, clustering the photos, journaling, and accents along the line.
Finally, a page about my other son, using much of the same paper and products as my One Little Word page. Design-wise, it is almost identical. The only differences are how I arranged the journaling and title, which transforms it into a new page:
Thank you for checking out my March designs! If you're like me and stress out about arranging your layouts into new designs, fret less and embrace the base.
