8.5 x 11 Layout | BEAR! | Lindsey LanningAug 07, 2019
Hello everyone, it’s Lindsey! I don't know about you but I’m loving the fun, birthday themed Jenny Collection this month but I wanted to challenge myself to create a layout that is a little more neutral and masculine as I document some photos from our recent camping trip. You can checkout the process video at the end of this post...you definitely want to hear the story about our crazy bear encounter!
We were supposed to be camping for 4 days but only made it 12 hours before the bear so I didn’t have many pictures to document. Since this layout is more about the story than the photos, I decided to keep them fairly small and play with a paper backed cut file as the main focal point for the layout.
I found a geometric bear file and cut it out of some Essentials White Cardstock and then cut the backing pieces out of a large variety of black and white patterned papers from the Jenny Kit as well as past collections.
Behind the bear, I smooshed some neutral colored inks and layered some torn pieces of the blue watercolor paper from this month’s kit. I wanted to keep it fairly simple since the bear was pretty busy with all of the different patterns.
At the top of the layout, I added some black stitching to create a string of stars. The stars were a Felicity Jane cut file that I cut out of a few different yellow patterned papers from Felicity Jane. I also stamped a sentiment from the Jenny | Stamp Set to bring in a little more pink to the layout.
I used the Jenny and Jaimee alpha stickers to create a small title and typed out the story of our bear encounter to add to the bottom of the layout.
I love how this layout came out and it’s a good reminder that scrapbooking isn’t always about documenting perfect photos...sometimes it’s just about documenting the stories in a creative way. Head on over to the Felicity Jane Shop to grab your Jenny Kit and challenge yourself to document some of your memorable stories!
Until next time!
