Everyday - Prima Marketing

Hi there! How's your weekend been? Sunny and sweet, I hope! Here's a layout I did for Prima some time ago to a video tutorial day. You can see the original post here (link). And now that I'm adding links here - there's still a change to get a short time free trial to Mixed Up Magazine! Please follow this link (link) to the site to learn more! 

The idea behind this layout was to document the everyday, something so non-glamorous as brushing teeth. Usually I scrapbook occasions and mile stones like first bike ride, holiday or birthday or something equivalent. But like the title of the page goes – it’s the everyday that counts.

For an everyday theme I chose to go with a jean blue color scheme and tried to add time reflecting elements to the page. I used a clock stamp, calendar sticker and use canvas alpha to write weekdays to the background as design element. If you want to see how I created the page, please see the video below. I also gathered a couple of tips if you are new to scrapbooking.

Tip 1: Let the color rule. A fool proof way to make the layout look cohesive is to use a color scheme throughout the page. Use the color scheme to pick the papers, embellishments and maybe even the photo, too. You can mix different collections and elements but everything will go together, ruled by the color.

Tip 2: Something under, something on top. To tie the photo to the page easily, add something on top of the photo and something under. And that doesn’t always have to be anything grand, a paperclip or two will do the trick wonderfully!

Tip 3: Clip it to fit it. Out of alphas? I always run out of Es. Bring in the scissors or use your imagination! Usually you can change a letter to another with some cuts or just by flipping it around – like a 3 for an E.

Tip 4: Use your handwriting. No one writes like you do. Your handwriting is unique and a part of you. You may not like the way your handwriting looks now, but you’ll cherish those pages later as it makes the pages more personal. If you don’t want to show your handwriting, use a tag or journal to the back of the page.

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a great start to the new week!
