Brae-er Team Blog Hop: Year >> Noted

Year Noted Brae-er

Welcome to another Team Brae-er Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from Chris’ Creative Life, you’re on the right track.  I’m excited to share the project I created.  I looked at this kit initially and wondered how I could think “outside the box” with it.  I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have difficulty seeing beyond the suggested project when a promotional kit comes out.  I’ve pulled this out a bunch of times with the intention of working on something for this blog hop just to put it away again.  But, on Sunday, I had the afternoon to play and I finally felt inspired.  I absolutely love how it turned out.  Here is my project:

Year Noted Layout

Year Noted Layout close up

This layout started with cutting apart one of the patterned sheets of paper.  I cut the dot one in half and trimmed my photo down a bit and started just laying things down, playing with placement.  I ended up trimming the top ones a little shorter so I could have a good 1/2″ frame around the entire layout.  Everything you see on this page came from the Year >> Noted kit.  I used only Black ink and added my own handwriting to the journaling list.  The title was cut with my Explore and one of the fonts I found in Design Space. I also added some doodled lines around the entire frame.  I’ve been doing that a lot lately and I really like the look.  I also love that even though there’s a lot of great embellishment, this layout is completely flat.  It won’t be adding any bulk to my album.  Sometimes that’s just what I want.  I can’t wait to create some more with what I have left over.

Don’t forget that this kit is only available for the month of January and is only $5 with an order of $50 (or add on the mini album for a kit total of just $10).

Now it’s time to hop on over to Arlene’s blog and check out what she did with this kit.

Happy Creating!

    This is so adorable – and it is the perfect layout for your photo. I love the look of the journaling – torn from a book. Just so perfect. Fabulous!
