VIDEO: Pick 5! // Those Big Eyes - 12x12 Layout Process Video11:00:00 AM
Hello friends! It is timeeeeee......for another pick 5! These videos/challenges are inspired by Adele from Inkie Quill and her grab 5 challenges. I absolutely love using up my supplies this way! I hope you enjoy the process video and my design! Here's the layout I created with my five products as the main components.
The 5 items I picked for the challenge this week include a set of Colorbox 12x12 papers, a Crate Paper sticker sheet, Studio 112 die-cut button borders, some Chatterbox die-cuts, and a KI Memories Berry Blast 6x6 paper pad. See the process of creating this design down below!
I hope you enjoyed my process video! In case you're wondering my process before the video actually starts is to pick a photo that I want to scrapbook and base my grab 5 off of that. So this photo of my cat Honey is pretty neutral color wise. I knew that I want to use up some of the papers by Colorbox because I have had them forever, but this also inspired some of my other picks. It's important to not just get caught up in all of the new supplies, but to focus on the photo.
In the video, I mention something about the visual threes. On this layout, I used this technique to keep it visually pleasing to the eye. This triangle will help your eye move about the page. First, starting at the largest cluster (bottom right with title), then the two clusters by the photo. Sometimes you don't want to move the eye around the page as much as this, so don't feel like you always have to use the rule of threes on your pages. Do what you feel like! I might make a whole video on the different design techniques I like to use, so if you'd like to see a video on that comment down below!
I have recently began to constantly keep a section for journaling and the date on my layouts. Several years from now, I will have no idea when my Dad took this photo of our cat, but I'll want to know! I always journal after I take the final videos because I tend to journal on several of my completed pages at once.
I've recently seen in a bunch of the Facebook groups that I am a part of that people do a lot of purging. I'm not a huge purger. I suppose that maybe putting together my giveaways and present kits for others is how I purge. For example, I gifted a fun mini album kit to my friend Courtney for Christmas last year. It was a great way to pass along things that weren't really my style anymore. Do you purge your scrapbooking supplies ever? If so, how often?
Towards the end of the video, I mention how I should really start with some letter stickers in mind for my title. It was so hard for me to find letter stickers for this layout. I don't know why, I have a lot of letter stickers, but this color scheme was a different one for me, so I had to go with some neutrals! Do you guys start with a title in mind? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed this layout, plenty more videos coming up! Thanks for stopping by!
