If you’re in the southern part of this amazing country I hope you’ve got your winter woollies on! It’s freezing! I think we’re feeling it more than usual as it’s been so warm until now. The good thing about the cold weather though is that it allows me to scrap guilt-free!
You might remember that I made a layout using the new Oh Snap! range from Echo Park a couple of weeks ago for Scrap Everything! At the time I said I would get at least 2 more layouts out of the pack. By adding two pieces of cardstock I have now made a double layout and still have a full sheet, half the stickers and some part sheets left. At $9 this is definitely a great value pack.
Here’s what I made:
I think a lot of you might relate to this situation. There’s a group of happy people, they’re all keen for a photo but none of the photos are perfect. Someone’s eyes are shut, someone turns away, the wind blows someone’s hair in their face and, in this case, they have a little chat in the middle of it!
Here’s the first page:
I wrote the problems that occurred with each photo underneath it, so it told the story of how I had to keep taking another photo and another….. Thanks goodness for the digital age!
The background is quite simple. I just cut a sheet of the Oh Snap! paper in half, put a half on each of the two pages and added a bit of a contrasting colour trim at the top and bottom. I then just took some scraps, cut them into the right size and shape, and created a banner along the bottom of the block. A lot of the banner is hidden by the photos but it creates an extra bit of interest and isn’t difficult to do.
That long title is self explanatory really!
Here’s a closie of the second page:
I love that Oh Snap! shape. What do you call that shape? An explosion? I also snuck a date tab onto my banner so it forms a part of it.
Those film strips are so useful – and there’s two sheets of them in the pack! I like the way that you could use just about any photos with these. I still have a full sheet left so expect to see these pop up again in my layouts.
And the last close-up:
If you get this Oh Snap! pack I hope you get the mileage out if it that I have. I’ll let you know when I make another layout with it.
Bye for now.
