I am a bit tired...crazy speed scrapping, parent teacher conferences and lots of Christmas festivities! But it is all good! I have been letting go and just trying new things...cutting without over-analyzing. Maybe being in a frenzy has helped that.
One trend that I am loving and using is the extreme side stripe! That thin piece of patterned paper along the left or right side of the layout! I feel like a side stripe serves an important prupose...it stops the eye from leaving the page and it gives balance. You can see the side stripe on my Everytime layout on the post below.
It is also here!
I used the December kit from My Scrapbook Nook for this layout! The boards are back up and we are so happy to be together again. I used those words purposely to match the theme of the layout! To balance out the photos and the big ole snow globe, I tucked some snowflakes and little strips underneath. I think it grounds all those random elements.
Something about the side stripe that gives a vertical perspective to things.
I am liking it lately. What is trending in your world?
