Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday. I’m coming to you pre-scheduled today since I am in TN for a little vacay. Read/Watch more about it, click here! Today I have a traditional scrapbook layout to share.
This is one I made using the February Studio Calico Scrapbook kit called Sugar Rush. I absolutely LOVED this kit! I couldn’t be more excited about my SC kits if I tried lol. I just can’t get enough SC. Luckily, my March kit should be here a little after I return from my trip so hopefully I can get a lot of scrapping done this month too.
Anyway, so if you’re interested in joining Studio Calico or another kit club, I have a Kit Club Comparison, click here! It lists pros & cons of the kit clubs I have tried out. If you want to join Studio Calico, be sure to join through my referral link (click here!) because then you get 500 rewards points (= $5 off) and so do I. OK, enough about kit clubs, more about the project.
On today’s layout, I used a sketch from this blog post over at Write.Click.Scrapbook.
This layout was simple enough I don’t think you need any explanations for what I did here. The only thing I did much differently than the sketch was I added that gray strip of patterned paper down the side of the layout. I actually only did that because the red/pink striped paper at the top didn’t cover the whole 12inches across the layout. Shhhh! It was a cover-up job! lol.
TIP: Let good enough be good enough
Honestly speaking, I am not particularly thrilled about how this layout turned out. It’s just OK. In my mind, it’s nothing special. And for sure it is my least fave of the layouts I’ve made so far with the Sugar Rush kit (and I made 8 so far). A little part of me thought about going back and changing it or re-doing it. And then I realized that would just be silly. Ya know what? The layout is DONE. It’s in the books. The photos are scrapped. THAT’s what is important to me. The layouts don’t always have to look like anything amazing. Just the fact that I got these photos not stashed away in a box is good enough for me sometimes.
I hear scrappers get frustrated or overwhelmed because their layouts are too boring or too simple or too. . . whatever. It’s not a beauty contest. It’s not any kind of contest. It’s just about having fun creating memories & documenting them.
I’ve gone on long enough, but I just wanted to share this one with you because ya know what, it isn’t my best work, but I had a blast creating it & I captured those memories by getting these photos down. 🙂
