Times Up 07: You Are My Anchor with Stephanie

1 Comment Scrapbook Pages 12x12, Times Up

One of my favorite things about this layout by Stephanie is the pop of turquoise and yellow/gold. Such a nice touch! -Lizzy

Hey y’all!

This is Stephanie and I’m here with another Time’s Up layout! This column has taken a whole new meaning to me the past few months. At first I thought it would be a fun challenge for me, and then I started realizing that breaking my creative time into chunks is a necessity if I want to get anything done.
This layout makes me so happy. I rarely have photos with my husband. We always have the best of intentions, but we run out of time. When we got a shot on our ten year anniversary, I just knew I had to use it on a layout. I coupled it with an Instagram photo of us from this past summer.

Time taken to complete layout- 35 minutes. Three ten minute chunks and a short chunk of five minutes.
First ten minutes- print photos. place chipboard heart over small photo and mat larger photo on patterned paper. trim left side of photo mat with pinking shears. tuck doily envelope on right side of larger photo. mist back of chevron card with color shine, set aside. layer doily, large photo, and anchor tag. adhere.

Second ten minutes- layer smaller photo on misted chevron card, adhere. cut strips of anchor washi and layer on left and right sides of page. place miniature doilies, anchors, and enamel dots on top of washi strips.
Third ten minutes- tuck tag and enamel dot under left photo. add date and details. add stickers and garland.
Final chunk of five minutes- add journaling. use 2 different sized pens to add visual interest.

Supplies used: patterned papers- Dear Lizzy; “You Anchor Me” paper- Glitz Design; Anchor washi tape, Anchor garland- Glitz Design; Chevron 4×6 card- Dear Lizzy; Chipboard anchors- Dear Lizzy; Enamel Dots- MME; Small Doilies- Greatest View ;Mint Green Color Shine- Heidi Swapp; Date Tag- Chic Tags; Chipboard Heart Frame- Crate Paper; Doily- Michael’s; Stickers- Dear Lizzy; Doily Envelope- Martha Stewart; Journaling Pens (medium tip, .03 tip)- Recollections
