NEW VIDEO: Almost Life-Sized!

Hi, everyone!

Congratulations on surviving the apocalypse! That was a lot less scary than it was made oput to be.

Today I have my last YouTube video before Christmas. This layout has a lot going on: it's the first kit club kit I've ever purchased, it's the first Instagram photo I've ever taken, it's one of my first photos with my new phone and Mr. Lifeguard is wearing my face! Whew!

This 12"x12" layout features an Instagram pic of Mr. Lifeguard holding a picture of my face (we had to take it for an eyeglass company) over his face. He's using his new phone, and because of the size of the Galaxy Note 2, it looks almost life-sized.

I used papers and embellishments from the Studio Calico "34th Street" kit with the "Penn Station" and "Herald Square" add-ons. I took advantage of a deal from Northridge Publishing that enabled me to get all that for the price of the kit, so I decided to give it a whirl. Not sure how I feel about not choosing my own supplies, though. You guys know how picky I am!

Below are some pictures of the finished layout:







I filmed this layout coming together for my YouTube channel. You can watch the video below, or click this link to watch it over on YouTube: Almost Life-Sized.





This layout wwas a bit of a challenge, but I am hoping future layouts with the kits will go more smoothly. I probably just need to get used to a different style of scrapbooking. Or I'll realize it's not for me. Both are fine!

Have a great day, great weekend and a great holiday! See you Thursday!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

    1. I struggled with this kit. I am much more comfortable with a paper pad or a collection pack. I think those are more me, but it's fun to experiment every once in a while. :)

  5. enjoyed watching the process! my new years resolution is to put aside the mini's and work on the 12 x 12's! This gives me inspiration!

    1. I think there's room for both in scrapping! It's fun to mix it up & not do the same thing all the time. :)
