Weekend Hours

We live in a time where we feel the need to go, go, go. And then Friday rolls around and all we can think about is a leaisurely day of sipping coffee, listing to some tunes, and checking out with a good book in front of the fire. This kit is to celebrate weekend hours and the cuddles and coziness they offer.
Check it out!

This kit included a pink heart embellishment but not an aqua one. Aqua was better with my little stack of embellishments so I attached the aqua paper to the heart and added some style. I added a bevel, and then two styles by Mommyish to make it glittery and shiny.

Janet’s note: Having glitter styles in my “digi toolbox” has been awesome! It’s easy to thing of things like layer styles as only being for designers, but the truth is, those CU products are great for the scrapper as well!

I loved the alpha, but had a rather wordy title that would have taken up way too much space on the page if I had used each alpha bit as it’s own separate element. So, I nudged the letters of each word together, cut off the extra white space so they would “fit”, and then merged them together to create their own separate word.

Janet’s note: What a cool idea! Alphas to Wordart…brilliant!

Janet’s note: Sometimes the most ordinary days of “doing nothing” turn out to be something special. I love that Trina took the time to record a simple little moment. As I often say, it’s the little moments that make life big!

One of the things I am trying to improve on is scrapping the people in our life that aren’t part of our family. It’s easy to simply focus on my kids and our family activities, but I want to remember all the other amazing people in our lives. My sweet niece is just too cute not to scrap. I want to remember her like this forever!

The template I used (one of my own) had a border around the edge. I clipped a paper too it, but it just seemed to be too much. It overpowered the layout. Once I removed it, though, I felt the page was lacking something. So, I put the border back and then played with the blending mode until I found the right balance between “too much” and “not enough.”

My new kitchen demo was a riot of colors… I think that converting the photos to black and white really allowed the story to come through without all the other distractions!

Janet’s note: First, so jealous of a kitchen reno! Second, Luly made a great decision to use black and white for this page. It keeps the focus on the overall story rather than the individual photos. Check out 5 Reasons to Choose Black and White Photos for more ideas on when to use B&W photos.
