Recently I have been more focused on the storytelling part of my scrap booking/memory keeping. In digital it is so easy to journal and the options seem endless for style and of course fonts. One of the big drawbacks I have found with paper scrapping is that you really do need to have a good idea of how the page will flow and look before you print out the words. In order to get a bit of a rhythm going I have done some scrap lifting of layouts I see on Pinterest so that I can get the printed type part down, without making an epic mess and changing my mind after I print!
For this layout I was inspired by a layout on Pinterest and for the life of me I cannot track it down again for proper credit. When I find it I will be sure to edit the information here. Anyway I thought the design and simplicity of the layout was super cute so I took my jumping off point from it. The two shipping tags I made in Photoshop that closely resemble the ones on the scrap lift layout. I printed out the tags and cut them as well as printing my type on the scrapbook paper and on the little blue label. I also decided to add the stamped star and good morning sunshine to my photo in Photoshop before printing it out. Once the printing and cutting were done the fun part started with layers and paper bits and paint!
I love how it turned out and it was well worth all the fussing around to make the page!
