Layouts & a Peek at my Room

Layouts & a Peek at my Room

Hi everyone and Happy Monday!! It is definitely a Happy Monday here- because we get to go see our little one on the ultrasound.  Hopefully the technician can get the shots she needs, since baby was not cooperative last time.  I will also be taking my dreaded glucose test! :)

This past weekend, I decided to pull out some of the Echo Park Photo Freedom sets I have- and use my instragram photos to make a couple layouts.  I developed my instragram photos from Foxgram.com.  They were inexpensive and quick, and the quality is just what I’d hoped for.

I tend to struggle with ‘Project Life’ type layouts- working in small sections to fill up 12×12 page.  But, I think I will get more comfortable the more I do layouts in this way.  This first layout I used the Echo Park Happy Little Moments, and focused on my cravings during this pregnancy.

I used the same collection for this next layout…and did I tell you that the Photo Freedom collections come with 5 photo sleeves!! I love that about these collections!   For this one I focused on instragram shots I got of me and the kids.

And, finally– a Christmas one.  I used the Echo Park Photo Freedom Dear Santa collection I also used the backs of the individual cards to add some more journaling.

So, what do you think?  Is this a type of scrapbooking that you do–or would like to do?  Or would you rather stick to full page layouts?

 

I mentioned my craft desk- and wanted to take a photo of it.  It’s pretty big, so it’s hard to get a good picture of it.   I’m 5’9 and I wanted it to hit my belly button- because I craft standing up.  He also added wheels to the bottom of it, so I could roll it out of the way if I needed to.   I wanted shelves on the sides to hold my machines that I don’t use regularly.  You can see all my stamps on the top shelf, my Expression on the 2nd shelf and my Cricut Cake on the 3 shelf.

The other side only has 2 shelves and holds my sewing machine and my printer.  The tower in the background is my paper tower my father in law built for me.

The front cubbies hold cartridges, and 6×6 paper pads.

If you notice the floors- we stained the concrete because with paint, glitter and paper shreds- it’s easier for me to craft without worrying about carpet.

Here’s the inside of the paper tower–it holds all my DCWV stacks. All of my other 12×12 papers are in my Scrapbox Workbox organized by theme.

My machines are on this station- along with my punches, copics, etc.  Along the right hand side is an old wine bottle holder that now holds rolled up vinyl sheets.

Some other areas of interest….A tall bookshelf to the left of the room, that holds twine, big spools of ribbon and tulle.

Glimmer mists are easy to grab in a lazy susan, and mason jars are a nice catch-all for buttons.

I will eventually do a video- I promise 😉
