Good morning!

I thought i'd show you a bit more about my process while creating a layout, from start, to finish.
Today's layout is still from the Sketchbook line and made with Shimelle's class The Perfect Collection.

I created the specific starting points knowing i would use it for a two photo layout but that was pretty much it. Here's how it looked at the beginning:

With this starting point in front of me, i decided to play with some of my new Mr. Huey's. Over the last month i saw soo many scrapbooker using them but never dared doing the same. I decided to give it a try and i LOVE it!! I think they're pretty expensive though, so i'm gonna have to figure out a way to make my own!
On this layout i used light green and black mist on three different spaces.

Next step was adding the pictures and my title. I decided to mat the two pictures since my background was already very busy with lots of colors. I went for pink & black for my title.

Finally, i picked up my stickers, dots and die cuts and started embellishing the page. Pretty much all the embellishments I'm using in this album are from the Sketchbook collection, except from a few things I already had. I've been seeing a lot of 'oh hello' or 'hello there' lately, and I love it!

I decided not to add journaling for now (i'm still working on this handwriting 'issue' lol), so that was it, layout complete!(and list of supplies here)

Do you follow the same steps in the same order while scrapbooking?


  1. Thank you for sharing your steps-I always wondering how other scrappers approach their layouts. I think I start with the pictures and go from there.
    What a fun layout!

  2. love your creative process and the new header is fabulous. Thanks for sharing.

  3. The new header is great!

    The mixed colours and fonts types on your title is very nice.
