Along with regular posts, I'll also have Facebook Live videos with techniques, contests, polls and fun crafting groups. Although I've loved blogging these past years, I want to be able to connect with everyone who stops by, so that's where I'll be!

25th Anniversary Layout - Back to Basics

We made some beautiful layouts at Convention using products from the new Annual Inspirations catalog. One of my favorites is this simple but elegant layout.




The Story: These are photos from my grandparent's 25th anniversary. I love seeing how elegant everyone looks, as well as how happy my grandparents were. My favorite, though is that picture of my grandma out on the dance floor dancing away.

The Basics: This layout was made with papers from the Basics Fundamentals, which I thought was just perfect for these old fashioned photos. The papers are so elegant and the Better Together Complements add just a small touch of color with the Bashful pink and a little shine with some silver foil.

The Finishing Touch: I didn't have to do much to make this layout fit the photos, but I did add a little something to the title - I stamped "You Are My" in front of home. I think if a layout begs to be used with certain photos, you can find a way to add just a few touches to make it fit perfectly.
