Mini Layout ~ Our Story

Welcome back to Mini Wednesdays! Danielle and I both had life ‘get in the way’, I’m sure you can understand, we don’t always get to do all the things we want to do! Today we have an easy layout sketch for you, and it’s so versatile!

Super simple, right? The sizes may not be perfectly aligned in the sketch, but it is simple enough! We have a 4×6 photo in the center, matted, and the 6×8 page, matted. Everything else is just ‘extra’! This could be the perfect cover/title page for a book, or even works well paired with another page (which is what Danielle did!)

I stuck with the sketch pretty closely! Now, I may (and probably will) add a 4×6 flip flap to the page when I get it into a page protector. Then I can add another 2 photos and not take up another whole page.

I used two different stamp sets here, and they work so wonderfully together! I just *LOVE* that little clip! The clip and the sentiment on the right (in the next photo) are from the Yesterday & Today cardmaking workshop! SO STINKIN’ CUTE! The “Telling our story” comes from the New Beginnings stamp and die set. Both of those sets have thin cuts with them, so no fussy cutting that silly little adorable clip!

Now, this little sentiment is in the cardmaking workshop as well, but it works perfectly for this page, because I am going to use it to scrap the trip that I surprised my hubby with to New York a few years ago. I don’t know what photo I will use for the front just yet, but it will include him, at least! (since it was HIS birthday!) I stamped it on the middle sized bracket from the Stitched Bracket thin cut set.

The fun blue paper comes from the current Mix In paper packet. It is the perfect “Giants blue”, which is why I went with the candy apple red for the sentiment. I used a tiny bit of thin foam tape under the clip to add a bit of dimension.

I hope you like my page! And I hope you play along! I know that Danielle and I would love to see what you do! So, hop on over to Danielle’s blog and see her project, and then play along with us!
