Scrapbooking With Lists
I love telling stories through graphic scrapbook layouts and this week is no different! This week I'm sharing a 9x12" layout today titled 'Happy Thoughts' and it's a fun and vibrant take on scrapbooking a random list of thoughts! Keep reading for details and products for this layout!

This layout is a fun way to incorporate a short list of thoughts or memories. I started with a photograph of my self and sized it to fit my 9x12 desired size in Photoshop. I then printed it and fussy cut around myself before attaching the photo to a background piece of cardstock. Helpful hint: cut around yourself in the photo and delete the excess in photoshop first–this will help you to trim out later and will save plenty of ink for your printer, too!

To get a fun texture, I mixed three patterned papers together to create my background and even utilized pop dots under certain elements to add extra dimension. The entire idea behind this layout was to document some of the reasons why I decided to take on a year long hand lettering challenge and I love the way the vibrant background exudes the way the challenge makes me feel and the 'happy thoughts' it gives me!
For my large colorful numbers, I grabbed the 6x6" 'Shine' paper pad by Maggie Holmes and trimmed around the numbers from one of the sheets. I attached them to the layout with pop dots and only placed them on the black and white pattern that I pieced together so the color would be more impactful. The listed items are just handwritten in a tombow dual brush pen on some vellum and attached under the same pop dot to lessen the adhesive I needed.
For the black and white pattern radiating out from behind me, I trimmed some black and white patterned paper into strips and then angled them around myself until the background was pretty much covered. I love the dimension, texture, and quirkiness it adds to the layout!
