Make | 8×8 Layout – “On This Journey”

8x8 Layout - On This Journey - Blackbird Darlin

I think this is one of my favorite layouts I’ve ever done.

There really isn’t a whole lot to it, but I love every single element…the photo, the paper, the colors, the journaling behind it, and that chipboard girl is one of those, “I must save this until the perfect photo comes along for it” type of product.

And I’ll be damned, the perfect photo did come along!

It’s a little sappy, but I’m approaching the four year mark of doing long distance with Boyfriendman, so I think I have the right to be sappy sometimes ;)

Make | 6×8 Layout – Photobooth

6x8 Layout | Photobooth

I busted this layout out almost as soon as I got home from this trip…boyfriendman and I took these at a photobooth in Nashville (located in the Third Man Records shop), and I just love it. Even though I couldn’t figure out where the hell to look at the camera.

I really wanted to add a title on this, but nothing was working directly on the patterned paper, so I lined alphabet stickers along the side of the photo instead. I also stamped a bunch of phrases on the pink cardstock strip with a couple different roller phrase stamps. So easy to put together! I’ve never made a 6×8 layout before, but this size worked perfectly for this, and I might experiment with it more in the future.

I’m really stoked that I have been working on these photos so soon, I usually let trip stuff sit for a thousand years because it’s so overwhelming!

Make | 8×8 Layout – “To Be Together”

8x8 Layout | To Be Together

Let’s talk about HOW EXCITED I was when I discovered that those word strips from an old 7 Gypsies sticker lined up perfectly with my photos on this page.

Oh man. Meant to freaking be.

I started out building this layout on a 6×6 piece of patterned paper, then added the lined piece with the journaling below it. Everything just kind of worked and fell into place while making this one, it’s so nice when that happens isn’t it?

8x8 Layout | To Be Together (2)

Supplies Used: patterned paper (October Afternoon Farmhouse 8×8 pad, American Crafts DIY Shop 6×6 pad), “together” (Maggie Holmes Open Book vellum ephemera), word stickers (7 Gypsies), tickets (from various Crate Paper ephemera packs or papers)

Make | 8×8 Layout – “According To Tradition”

8x8 Layout | According To Tradition

Remember back in the early 00’s of scrapbooking, when we were all recreating the scenes of our photos? (Like, a pic on the mountains had to be backed with hand torn mountain pieces and clouds, or a school picture would have been backed on a paper with a schoolhouse?)

This layout kinda feels like that to me, due to not a lot of white space, and the diner resemblance. I also used a bit of super old product…those Sharon Soneff Flea Market letter stickers were the CRAZE RAGE back in the day, ya’ll.

We kind of overused the Impact font at one point there too, but I love these bold yellow letters!

8x8 Layout | According to Tradtion

Supplies Used: patterned paper (Maggie Holmes Open Book 12×12 pad), chipboard frame (Crate Paper Open Road frames), “guest check” (cut from Maggie Holmes Flea Market paper) letter stickers (old stash! – Reminisce and Creative Imaginations), doily, gold glitter washi tape

Make | 8×8 Layout – “Scenes From…”

8x8 Layout | Scenes From | Blackbird Darlin

This layout has been sitting for months in my “OMG I Can’t Work On This Anymore All Hope Is Lost” drawer. There were a few different elements I wanted to add so badly to this one, but no matter how I tried the arrangement, it just wouldn’t work.

So I pulled it out the other day, shuffled things around forever, and then gave in. Letter stickers, a small journaling block, and the strip of patterned paper it is then! My love for product was overcome by the selfishness of these photos wanting all the spotlight.

I feel a lot better about it now though. ;)
