Magical Journey | FSJ
Fun Stampers Journey just came out with their new Trends Mini Catalog revealing a new collection that had my heart pitter pattering. It is available NOW! The collection is called Magical Journey and is ALL about Disney. I am so excited to finally sit down and create with it and it doesn't disappoint. The colors and patterns of the printed papers capture the magical feeling perfectly, both A and B sides are wonderful to work with. And then there are stamps, dies and embellishments too!
If you have seen a layout of mine a really long time ago or have taken my Big Picture Class for the Make It Work Summer class, you will recognize this design. This is my all-time favorite go-to design for multi-photo layouts. Instead of re-thinking a design, I like to re-use one of my own that I know works. New papers, photos, and embellishments make it a brand new fresh layout.
This layout focuses a lot on the nine photos, but I brought in a lot of printed papers, and was able to also bring in some of the amazing stamps and dies to match them! I was so excited to see the fireworks and wand stamps AND their matching dies! Endless ways to re-create my own embellishments.
There is a lot going on on this layout, so to keep it light, I leave space between the printed papers and the photos, and also have borders around the photos. To balance the layout, I punched out circles in the dark printed paper to help balance the dark printed paper at the top. Then I just bring focus with the stamps and dies near the top photos and by the bottom photos near my title.
If you have a design that 'works' re-use it. It will always be different because of your photos, papers, and embellishments. I even changed the size of this layout. This is a 9x12 and will finally be my first layout into my album from our trip last year!
