Happy October! Now that I have a month of school under my belt and no travel plans in the near future, I’m ready to get back to my creative endeavors. I’m challenging myself to create a layout a day with the ScrapHappy community. The only time I actually completed the challenge was my first time six years ago, so I’m really determined to make it happen this time. Luckily, it also coincides with CTMH’s Studio J special, so I’m going to create most of my layouts using Studio J to save time and money since it is buy 9, get 1 free this month.
I used layout #8 from the Travels Express Kit. Seriously, the most time consuming part of this layout was narrowing 150 photos from our tour of Crete down to 5! I love that these Express Kits allow me to drop in my photos and journaling without any additional fuss. Honestly, I don’t usually use quick pages because I don’t like the lack of customization. With this page, I was able to customize the title, add a shadow to Crete, and add a cocoa frame around the focal photo. I’ll further bling it out when I get the final print by adding bitty sparkles…they are my not-so-secret addiction!
