Things I Love {Take Twelve}

For my January Take Twelve project I documented the day hour by hour. This time around I wanted to take a different approach. Since it was February I decided to document things that I love.

  • Design Inspiration: I used this layout by Donna Jannuzzi as the base for my design. I loved the paper strips above and below the two 4×6 photos.
  • Color Inspiration: Since it’s a layout about things I love, I decided to use colors I love. I’m an orange and turquoise kind of gal. Bet you can’t tell by my blog colors… 🙂

I’m loving these little 4×6 templates lately! Makes it so easy to include lots of photos on a page. For this layout I used a template with 6 slots for photos. All I did was flip the template for the second 4×6 photo. LOVE how it turned out!

I thought it would be fun to highlight the number 12 on the number pattern paper.

One of the things I love is Amy Tangerine washi tape. How could I make a layout about things I love without using some? I decided to use it as strips of pattern paper. To add to the Amy Tangerine fun I layered several of her elements along with a ticket and a date stamp as sort of a title cluster.

At the bottom I added another little embellishment cluster. It just makes me so happy! 🙂 And now for a list of things I love…

I am loving Ella Publishing Co.’s Take Twelve photography and scrapbooking challenge! Have you taken 12? It’s not to late to join in! Any month, any time!

    I have never known what to do with tape, but I love how you incorporated it and the number paper you used.
