2 Peas in a Pod // 12x12 Layout Share

September 22, 2016

As I've explored in a few of my most recent posts, there are a lot of trends going on in the world of scrapbooking currently. One of those trends that we'll be exploring today is the one-photo trend. It was rare to see a one photo page layout back in the old days, but now it's all about artistic perspective (or something like that). So, let's move on to the layout!

Today's layout features a cute 4"x6" photo of my cats sharing their cat tree. I love how it looks like they were posing for this photo! I really wanted this to be its own page because I thought this photo captured the size difference between the personalities of these two fur balls. I started off the layout with a piece of striped cardstock from the Craft Smith Sea Glass Paper Pad. The green color on the background really brings out the color of the cat's eyes as well!

I used a piece of floral paper from Pebbles Garden Party 6"x6" paper pad to mat my photo. To give more emphasis on the photo I tucked some fun foam under it. I did a lot of fidgeting around with all of the pieces for this layout. Once I had finally settled on a layout for all of the bits, I could mark where I wanted my stencil to show up. I used a Heidi Swapp cross stencil with some of the silver modeling paste. I ended up placing some of the stenciled pieces in three spots and I really like the gleam it adds to the layout.

To prevent my photo from feeling like it was floating, I wanted to give it a sturdy base. I used some of this silver polka dot washi tape to achieve that. I also included a pink rub on border from Basic Grey and an arrow die cut from Jillibean Soup. Then, the right side of the photo contains a cluster also resting on the washi tape base. I included a rub on from Studio Calico, a label from Pretty Little Studio, and an acetate die cut from Project Life.

The smaller cluster on the left hand side is actually a secret journaling spot! I tucked a small black diagonal striped bag underneath my photo to create a spot for a tag with journaling on it. I also included another little tag from Pretty Little Studio to balance out the right side in addition to adding more color to the left top corner.

Lastly, the title I used on this layout is made up of three fonts! The "2" is from a Sticko puffy sticker alphabet set. Then, "peas" and "pod" is made up of letter stickers from Studio Calico and the mini alphabet stickers are by Teresa Collins. I hope you enjoyed exploring this one photo focus trend! This was a really fun layout for me to make. If you have any questions about this trend, let me know! Thanks for stopping by!
