Presents! - 8x8 Layout Process Video // Episode P - Summer of Stories!

July 25, 2019

Time for another Crafty Christmas in July inspired layout! This is also paired with my Summer of Stories episodes that are running throughout the summer! I recently finished my 2016 Christmas Mini Album but had a ton of photos leftover, so I decided to make an additional album as a gift!

These pages were simple, but impactful thanks to color impact and texture! The left-hand side is full of so many different layers! As some of you know, I truly enjoy mixing and matching products. I took some vintage-styled items from K & Company and paired them with pop art design like pieces from Echo Park! The colors really drive the layout to make it feel a bit more cohesive, but don't be afraid to experiment! Something you hate now might just grow on you!

Another thing that really pulls the layouts into one is the repetitive items. The gold stars, the puffy stars, and similar patterns keep the eyes focused on these pages. The only way the right layout was going to succeed was through contrast. Red and green are opposing colors, but we love them anyway. Since there is red in my photos, I decided to go for a heavy green background, they automatically pop! I added in some additional alternating paper layers to keep the contrast building up!

I hope you enjoyed! I am truly loving this 8x8 size. Have you ever worked on a project in this size? Thank you for stopping by!
