It's Tuesday which means it's time to link up another process video and layout that I have been working on.
This week's layout is the first layout I created using Cocoa Daisy's May "Record Label" kit. I also purchased the "Johnny B" and "Buddy" add-ons. I will admit, this kit has challenged me. It is full of blacks, reds, oranges, and a mixture of blues and greens. I don't scrapbook with a lot of black or orange, and black cardstock scares me to death! I'm working through it though and I am surprising myself with how much I am loving the resulting pages.
Here is the layout for the week:
"A Frappe Built For Two"
Supplies I used: Cocoa Daisy May Kit
Process behind it: I knew that I wanted to use both the picture and the gift card on the layout. I very quickly decided that I didn't like the way the green in the gift card clashed with the blues and grey/kraft tones of the patterned papers that I chose so I decided to tuck it into the little file folder that came in the kit. A few stickers and cardboard elements later, throw in some twine and awesome alphabet Thickers and I LOVE how this page turned out.
Journaling: The journaling is about how my husband and I used our gift card to share a special treat instead of spending our own money. We are on the road to paying off our debt and so aside from our own personal hobby allowance we said goodbye to all of the "extras" like Starbucks. It was a nice treat and the two straws made it feel kind of romantic. Corny, I know.
How long did it take me? About 40 minutes. The hardest part was figuring out what to do with the gift card.
Here are some close up photos. You can find the process video below as well.

Here is another layout that I completed for a color challenge that I forgot to link up. Oops! I've never attempted a grid type layout before and I was really intimidated but I am so excited by the page and I adore the fun, playful feel to the page and the story behind it.
