Memory Keeping Monday: Wonderful You!

Yes. I recognize it's not Monday; however, it seems a bit like Monday with all that I've had going on these days. I've been busily packing up kits for CKU- Stamford. I hope I'll get to meet some of you there! I've been prepping for a big release for Echo Park Paper. I've been working on my upcoming holiday blog posts. (I'm a little bit excited for Christmas now from seeing all the projects I've got to share with you!)

Today's project is a layout called "Wonderful You." This layout combines several manufacturers' products to create one layout. It's soft and feminine with touches of modern elements. My approach? I start "shopping" my own stash to find paper and embellishments that will work well together. Then I lay it all out and print the photo in the exact size that I need. This particular layout focuses on the personality of my niece, Zadie. Here is the layout:


Here's a close-up photo of the layout (you can find more photos of this project HERE):



Here's the helpful start-to-finish video featuring this layout:

  2. Hi Jen - I love your style! Where do you get the plain tags you use on most of your layouts? I too like to use then but have a hard time finding them in stores.
