Hi, everyone & welcome to 2013! To be honest, 2012 basically sucked, so I am not too sad to see it go. But, like the poem from yesterday suggests, I am going to put all that behind me! I have my fingers crossed for good things from 2013. :D
In honor of turning over a new leaf, I have given my blog a total makeover for the new year! I like how fresh and clean it looks ~ like a new sheet of paper. :D And it really makes the layout photos pop, so I like that, too.
Here is my first layout video of 2013! This layout has some "out-takes" from my sister's engagement photo shoot. I'll probably be scrapping her engagement photos in a couple different ways, but in this version I wanted to talk specifically about some of our photo shoot challenges: cranky models & an impending hurricane (Sandy made landfall about eight hours after these photos were taken), to name just two.
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 + S&H. I also mention in the video that I used some paper tape I made myself. I have a USTREAM tutorial on how to do that which you can check out here: Homemade Washi
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: Photo Shoot Realities.
Have a great day & a great year! See you Thursday!
P.S. CHA is getting SO close! Anything in particular you guys want to see? I will be tweeting from the floor again this year, so there should be lots to chat about!
