Right Now

When you are involved in LOAD (creating a Layout a Day) some days you just want to get a page done. But there are other days where you want to play. I created this page on a day I wanted to play!

  • Design Inspiration: As soon as I saw this album from Amy Tangerine’s new line Sketchbook I was in love. And I knew I could recreate it a bit with an Amy Tangerine camera stamp I have.
  • Color Inspiration: I knew I wanted a white base for my page so I started there. Then I dug through my scraps of transparencies and pulled a few that went with my photo.


I have always been a fan of tone on tone patterned paper. Recently I realized that white tone on tone paper doesn’t really exist. So I decided to make my own!

Since the photo was a recent family portrait I decided to use a camera stamp to create my background (links to all products used below). I stamped the camera image with versa mark ink and then heat embossed it. The photograph makes the stamped image seem a bit more peachy than it looks in real life. It truly is white on white and super subtle! LOVE!

I’ve had a handful of scrabble tiles for awhile. I was given a few sets that spelled one, two, three, four, and fun. I loved the tiles but had never had a layout that would use those words. It took me way to long to figure out that I could dump all the tiles together and mix it up to spell new words…duh! 🙂 Once I figured that out, I realized I could spell NOW, which meant I could use these adorable tiles…NOW!

I used Glossy Accents to attach both my scrabble tiles (it’s a super strong adhesive) as well as my transparencies. One tip when using Glossy Accents on transparencies, use your finger to smear it a bit so that it’s a thin layer. When it dries it will dry clear and you won’t see it at all!

As you know from yesterday’s post my youngest just turned 5. Which means this page was made prior to his birthday (about a month ago in fact). I decided to just include a few random facts about us right now. I just had so much fun making this page!
