Hi ~ Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway with some water fun for my day at TheBugBytes. I have been working on our last summer vacation pages and I wanted to put a lot of photos into the layouts while not overwhelming the eye. Hopefully I achieved just that!!
I started by trimming my photos to 4x4, 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 or 3x3. I made a grid on each page leaving empty space for my title and embellishments.
I made a border with the bubbles from Graphically Speaking. I took three sets of bubbles at 3.93w x 2.17h and welded them together. I copied and pasted a second set and then used my Hide Contour to hide all of the inner cuts to make a shadow piece. I put the H2O (also from Graphically Speaking) on my mat at 4.00w x 2.88h. I put the word fun from Opposites Attract at a height of 1.35 inches and welded them together.
Here are the cuts.
I cut out the words Jump, Flip and Swim from Street Sign at 1.27 inches. I chose these words to describe the photos.
I ran the letters through my 1" Xyron and saved the negative piece to use as a template.
I stuck down my letters....
and peeled off the template.
The kids had so much fun jumping into the pool this year.
I decided late to add the three smaller photos on this page so I trimmed them a little smaller than the 4x4 photos (3 1/2 x 3 1/2). I adhered the title with "fun" overlapping H2O.
I used some twine to divide the page into nine squares.
If you can believe it ~ these were just the top 12 photos! I take way too many photos!!
I used the same twine to outline my bubbles.
Here is the completed layout once again. I am forever looking for ways to add lots of photos to a layout ~ especially on vacation layouts!!
Thanks Pam for having me over today!!
