Today, I get to share one of my first reveals for Get It Scrapped! Yesterday, I shared several sneak peeks of what I will have coming up over the rest of this month and into July. The layout I have for you today, is posted on the Easy Scrapbook Pages site. Easy Scrapbook Pages offers you great inspiration and step by step instructions in 8 steps or less, on how to recreate the layouts you see. One of the quickest ways to create a page, is by using a coordinated product and then adding in a few other items from your stash. That's exactly what I did with my "Today I Am 3" layout.
This layout may look like it took a long time, but it actually came together fairly quickly. I used Echo Park's Charming collection, and pulled in some buttons from Hobby Lobby, Studio Calico wood veneers, and some Washi Tape. I usually always start my pages by choosing my photo sizes and then figuring out the design of my background paper. For this page I used one 3.5x5 photo and two wallet photos. I placed the photos where I wanted them and then I cut four 3x3 circles and used them to fill in the space beside and below my photos. I stitched around the first circle and then added some buttons, wood veneers, and stickers to "decorate" each of the circles. I used my Expression to cut the word "Today", the number "3", and the arrow. I finished up my layout, by adding a little bit of washi tape and some brads and then I covered my photos with scrap paper and sprinkled a little bit of brown Smooch Spritz over my background paper.
