The One with the 2Peas Me-Themed Layout & Video


Monday, February 17, 2014

The Garden Girls theme for the month of February is ME and here is the moodboard upon which all of our projects are based:

We're also challenged to use as much of the cut files and printables as we can. I had fun gathering, printing, and cutting these 2Peas exclusive files for a pic to post on instagram of my creative process:

The weekly sub-theme is MOMENTS - the stories we just have to scrapbook.
So, with all of that in mind, I drew my inspiration from the quilt on the bottom right section of the moodboard - OF COURSE!

Description: Since I'm the one in the family who takes all of the pictures wherever we go, I find it difficult to be the one in front of the camera because I'm always behind it! But there's nothing like a good ol' "me-themed" assignment that will get me to take some selfies! I even straightened my hair and put on make up just for this photoshoot :) Then I parked myself in front of our big window for lots of natural light and snapped away. I love that I have some pictures of me right now at this point in life.

Journaling says: Feeling so blessed and incredibly happy with my life right now.

Video how to: Watch this video to see how I made this layout from start to finish: 
Written how to: Punch 1" triangles from pink, blue, red, and black patterned papers then arrange them in rows at an angle across an aqua ombre patterned paper layout base. I chose the ombre paper because of the pink ombre in the moodboard. Once all the triangles are adhered, sew across the top of each row to keep them in place permanently. Die cut a title and frames from white cardstock, print the monthly printables, then arrange them along with photos across the center of the layout. Drop India ink over the top right and bottom left sides. Scatter badges, fabric brads, and round printable die cuts around the layout as shown. Stamp the date on a date printable label and tuck it under the left photo. Journal on the bottom right edge.
