Scrap365 Blog Hop


We are getting your scrapping New Year off to a flying start!!!

This month we are teaming up with Finnabair and her amazing DT from Mixed Media Place.


 
One of the things that we are very conscious of here at Scrap365 HQ is that if you are new to scrapping it can be really overwhelming with the choice of products to use and the host of styles to emulate….the same could be said if you’re experienced!!

So we have decided that 2014 is the year to get BACK to BASICS!! It doesn’t matter if you have been scrapping for ten years or ten days...you will be sure to learn something new along the way!

Finn has very kindly donated a marvellous prize to either add to your stash or to get you started.



All you need to do to be in with a shot of the prize is follow Scrap365 and Mixed Media Place blogs. Like us both on Facebook and leave a message here telling us which layout principle you are going to try! We would love to see your take on the Principles so be sure to upload them to our Facebook page :)

Our January Blog Hop is all about layout principles. I found this fabulous prompt on Pinterest, courtesy of SuzyQ Scraps http://suzyqscraps.com/. It really sums up the beginnings of every layout.



I chose to go with the Alignment. Choosing a photo and printing it off 2 further times.


 
 I've also made one with the 3 photos, but using different photos.
I'm going to be totally honest here and say, I have actually added this LO since posting this blog hop post this morning. I had this second LO ready, but I just wasn't happy with it. I didn't feel happy with adding it to my post. It's been sat on my desk for some time now (it was actually started before Christmas) but I just couldn't move forward with it and it just didn't look finished.
So this morning I've taken some time and I decided that I wouldn't let this LO get the better of me.
 
 
I removed the original title which was just 'Hats' where 'Disney' now is and added an Extra long title.
I like a good amount of balance on my pages and I needed to balance out my title by using the same colours top and bottom. I stuck to a colour combo of red, aqua and navy.
I also used a Simple Stories sticker sheet - Urban Traveler and added the stickers around the edges.
I now feel so much happier with this LO and it finally feels finished.
 
 
My sweet friend Alexa gave me some goodies when she visited me recently. The fabric Studio Calico cameras were amongst the goodies. I inked them in blue and added some red pen to them.
 
 
 
 
 
These stickers really did the trick and saved this LO.
 
 
So there you have it, the story of the saved LO.
Am I the only one that has moments like these???
 
Don't forget to leave your comments on the Scrap365 Blog when you get back to the beginning and follow the instructions to be in for a chance to win that gorgeous prize! And maybe you could leave some blog love on the DT blogs along the way.
 
Here is the full blog list.

Your layouts are great! I like the concept of alignment it allows for more photos and has a clean look to it. I think I will be trying all of these techniques out at least once! Thanks for sharing!http://mybeaner.blogspot.ca/

It's so cool to see the Principles in action - love the aligned version here - and amazing repetition too in the first one. Love those bold bright colours to accompany the Disney pictures - fantastic. Thanks for the inspiration.
