Key West Layout

Hi friends! Hope your week is off to a good start! Did you watch the Golden Globes last night? I always love watching award shows, especially for the acceptance speeches. I just find them so inspiring. And of course I enjoy looking at (and critiquing) everyone’s fashion choices as well.

But let’s get down to crafty business! Today I’ve got a layout to share with you! It’s not often that I make layouts, but I love doing it and am definitely hoping to get lots more scrapbooking done in 2015. I’m really excited by the new scrapbooking trends I’ve been noticing and incorporating more of it into home decor rather than just in albums. I’m truly excited about where the industry is going!

This layout was featured in the Simple Patterns for Paper Crafters special issue from Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine. Be sure to click the link above to get a copy (paper or digital still available) if you don’t have it already! The issue featured exact patterns and diagrams so that you could complete each project using minimal paper and embellishments. It was by far one of my favorite issues I’ve worked on.

These gold glitter Thickers are my favorite and I had been saving them (hoarding them) for just the right project. I also used touches of gold embossing on the layout to pick up the gold from the title.

Well that’s it for today! Hope you enjoyed seeing a different type of project from me (more to come, pink promise!). And I’d love to know, since it’s been on my mind, what do you see for the future of paper crafting and scrapbooking? What are you most excited to try (technique-wise or a new style of memory keeping)? Leave me a comment below – I’d love to know your opinions!

Have a happy, crafty day!
