Hello everyone, it’s Lindsey! Today I’m sharing my last entry in this fun little A5 notebook where I’ve been documenting some less formal photos. I’m obsessed with those giant alphas from the Tori Collection and decided to use them as a focal point for this layout documenting my new found hobby. You can find the full process video for this project at the end of the post.
I kept the foundation of this spread pretty simple with just a piece of scallop patterned paper from the Tori Collection and then used the large alpha die cuts for my title which became a main focal point for this spread.
Since I’m oftentimes documenting photos of my boys I don’t really get an opportunity to use the girls from the collections so I decided to use Tori as a simple embellishment for the title page and anchored her with the scallop die cut which helps mirror the scallops from the patterned paper.
I’ve never had a green thumb but during this pandemic I’ve fallen in love with house plants. We’ve done a ton of house projects the last few months and every trip to Lowes ends with a plant or two or three in my cart LOL.
I printed my photos in a variety of sizes and backed them with some grid paper before arranging them in a mini gallery on the page..
Since this layout is on the smaller side, I kept the embellishment pretty simple. The wooden heart is from a past collection but I thought it went well with some of the wood in the photos. A couple of die cuts, a puffy sticker, and some simple journaling and I called it good!
I love layouts that have tons of tiny little details and embellishments but sometimes (who am I kidding, oftentimes) I’m limited on time to create so large focal points like this title and scalloped patterned paper help add interest without the need for a ton of little details on a layout.
The Tori Kit is sold out but you can still grab items from the collection a la carte (including those amazing JUMBO alphas) and don’t forget to check out the process video for this project below.
