Today I am sharing a layout process post! I scrap traditional layouts of many sizes. The reason is, I love to start with a blank page. It makes me feel most creative! From there, I always choose my focal point photo. The photo contains all of the information I need to determine what kind of layout I will make. What is the memory? What emotion does it evoke? And most of all, what colors do I want to design with? Yes, I am a big time COLOR scrapper. I love to work with color palettes. I even organize my leftover kit embellishments by color! Let’s take a look!
Here is my finished layout!
Here is the photo and items I wanted to use from the September Clique Kit Capture. I have already done a lot of layouts and projects with this kit, so I was picking through some scraps actually. This black and white flower paper was one of my favorite patterned papers in the kit. I keep going back to it over and over! I had fussy cut many of the flowers and had some left to use. This photo is of my three all grown up step daughters from when they came to visit us this summer.
I started with a simple ink splash background using some Tim Holtz distress ink in broken china. It is one of favorite ocean colors. Next I decided on my color palette. I thought I would create a little vignette of some embellishments floating around those black and white flowers. The pinks in the cocoa vanilla scraps would look great complemented by some peachy yellow-oranges adding a soft , warm sunny tone to the page.
My last step was just to frame the whole page and for this I chose something with a lot of contrast -the narrow black and white stripe paper left from my Clique into Color kit (Bella Blvd’s Just Add Color collection) And that’s my process! I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me and my scrappy style today! What’s your process?

One thing that’s on my Fall Bucket List each year is to carve pumpkins-one down, 2 to go all before our party on Saturday! Love your layouts and all the handcutting! I never thought to separate my embellishments like that but I see a MAJOR re-do/re-sort down in my studio on Sunday!
