Hello everyone! How was your weekend?? Mine was kind of busy. We had a house full of people because we were celebrating one of our daughters birthdays. It was fun and cute, but it made the weekend long!! lol Plus its a long weekend, so today I still have 6 little ones running around the house and all of them keep wanting cake all the time! lol
Well I thought I would share with y'all a layout and a 12x12 pocket page I created with my Cocoa Daisy January DT package. I love to play with DITL cards on my regular layouts, there great for layering and for blocking out layouts, grid designs and all.
So this 1st one I used 2 of the DITL cards and made a bit of a blocked out layout. All centered around the middle of the page.
For me, these are quite simple pages, fast. And sometimes thats all I have time for,lol. I started with the white background and places the picture where I wanted it and then placed the cards.
To start out with, if I'm not sure if I might want to change the layout around later, I put a little adhesive on the back of my cards and picture and then start building. I grabbed the pretty paper that looked like it had doilies on it and fussy cut a few of those out and placed them around the layout. I added a few of the gorgeous wood veneer that came in the kit and one of the exclusive cocoa daisy print and cuts on the layout.
I wanted more to it, it looked to plain, so I added some of the pink paislee rub ons and a little triangle up to the top left. I still wanted a bit more so I punched a few places on the edges of the layout and backed them with some of the exclusive, adorable, strawberry paper. and that was it. It went quite quick and I like that its a soft layout and that the picture stands out. It was just a cute moment between my husband and one of our daughter, watching a game on the phone.
This is my 1st DITL page that I have done this year. And it was for the 1st week of January. I print my pictures off every Monday for the week before, so I will have more. This one is really simple. We had a lot of family in and out after the holidays and little sick ones. So I did a bit of journaling about that week and added a few stickers from one of last months kits and a rub on here and there and called it done. Oh I added that little flair button on the outside of my pocket page so that it wouldn't be sticking up too.
