While I really do love all the current AdornIt lines, I must say that Pink Hoot has to be my fav! As soon as I saw it, I knew that it would be perfect for these photos!
It’s fairly rare that I create a single photo layout as I always have a hard time picking just one. I had this problem with the photos I wanted to use for “Miss Personality,” so I used a 4x6 shot as my focal photo and then supplimented it with smaller photos.
My favorite technique is to create collages of 2-4 pictures on one 4x6 print. The four photos along the bottom were actually printed as 2 4x6 collages with 2 photos each. It’s a very econimical way to order prints as 4x6’s are generally inexpensive.
I got this great idea for journaling from an eBook by Ella Publishing Company. It was a great way to take a snapshot of Kaitlin’s personality RIGHT NOW. I pulled the text colors straight from the fun, bright colors in the patterned paper.
I punched a few hearts from other patterns within the collection and gave them a little pop with adhesive dots.
In case you can’t tell, I was inspired by the name of the collection itself for my “What a hoot!” layout.
In it, I basically made a list of all the things that Kaitlin does to make me laugh and smile like her impersonations, accents and funny dances.
I love to break up my journaling by cutting it into strips. It’s easier to form it around other elements on the page and keep your layout from looking too ‘blocky’. It also allows more of the beautiful patterned paper to peak through.
Then I used a few more of the Pink Hoot stickers to create a fun embellishment grouping along the bottom.
I hope you enjoyed these layouts! Stay tuned for a double-page spread using the Destinations collection tomorrow!
