I cannot believe how fast I created this layout last night on my Cricut. It didn't take any time at all to cut the honeycomb backgrounds, the sun, frames and the title.
I haven’t added pictures yet because I’m on a time crunch and THE PIX ARE TAKING TOO LONG to get ready to print locally. I’ve decided to upload them in a new Studio J blank page and have them printed the next time I order Studio J. I can now print my photos in Studio J that will fit my classic scrapbooking pages. 3x3 photos, here I come! They still arrive on a 12x12 page, so I’ll get lots of photos on one page, I’ll just have to trim them apart when they arrive. It’s also cheaper than going to Walgreens when ordering a 5x7 and other miscellaneous sizes. More about faster & cheaper photo printing with StudioJ later.
This layout is going to hold pictures I took this Monday & Tuesday. I’m excited to see pix in a layout so quickly!
The foundation of my page is from page 67 of the Artbooking handbooking.
As we don’t have palm trees on Washington beaches, I decided to drop that element. I opted for a sun (it’s very exciting when we see that here) from page 53. I also brought over the title from that page. The sun was cut at 7” based on the handbook page that it was on. It turned out to be about 4.5.” I used Center Point to put the swirl in the center of the sun.
The title fun&sun was lost on the honeycomb background so I added the summer from page 52. It’s a mini-book page. I used fit to length and cut it to fit the fun&sun shape I had already cut.
I used the Surf’s Up paper pack. Love how I didn’t have to dig through my stash to find coordinating papers. I also used the Mini-Medley Accents Wooden Collection.
My pre-order for Artbooking is starting next week. Read why I’m waiting here—It’s to your benefit!
