Well, it’s official. We’re one quarter of the way done with 2012. Only nine short months before the end of world, folks, are you ready?
I’ll be back later this week with an update on my 2012 Scrapbooking Resolutions but in the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite layouts I’ve done so far this year.
To be fair, it wasn’t really that hard to decide considering I’ve only digital scrapbooked a whopping 15 pages so far this year which I know, I know, most of you do that many layouts in your sleep. But hey, it’s been a busy year so far! And surprisingly that number actually puts me two layouts ahead of where I was at this time last year. That my friends, is progress.
To kick things off I’m starting with the first layout I did this year, my One Little Word layout for 2012.
One Little Word 2012
I never really think to do photo-free layouts but every time I do them, I end up loving them. I especially love how the talk bubble cutouts came out on this one – I just want to reach out and touch them.
October 2011 Faves
Aww, repeating shapes, how I love thee. The shapes on this page were actually inspired by a design I saw on Pinterest – I love that they’re geometric but still a little wonky. And of course, a Chicago layout (with photos of the Bean, no less) is always a good time because it means I got to hang out with my sis who’s a grad student there.Happiness Is… by Zoe Pearn; Teeny Type Alpha (retired) by Zoe Pearn; Font is DJB 4 Lynnette by Darcy Baldwin; FAVE-O-RITES Vol. 5 Templates by Nettio Designs
Life is an Adventure
I can’t remember where the inspiration for this layout came from but this was one of those pages that just flowed. Like you come up with the idea and wham, what feels like seconds later, you’ve got an awesome layout you love. That doesn’t happen to me all that often so when it does I’m always amazed. But I love how bold and colorful it is and the cutout title of my life motto is one of my fave trends of the moment.Life’s An Adventure by Penny Springmann and Becca Bonneville; Font is Bebas
You & Me
This layout is actually a redesign of another older less-loved layout of mine (more on that another day) but I LOVE how it turned out this time. Zoe’s kits always rock my socks and this one was no exception. I would so wallpaper my house in those yellow chevrons if I could. Plus the elements in this kit were to die for – it was so fun to just layer and play.Credits: Lost & Found by Zoe Pearn; Ginormous Single Stitches Facebook Freebie by Traci Reed; Alpha from Love Birds by Zoe Pearn and Shawna Clingermann; Straight Line Stitching by Anna Apnes; Round N Round Vol. 1 Template Freebie by Nettio Designs
