Hello everyone, it’s Lindsey! If you watched my unboxing video for this month then you will know that I’m doing things a little different for the month of June. This will sadly be my last month on the Design
Team so instead of requesting another kit from The Wild Hare Kits, I chose to combine all of my leftovers from the last year and make a giant kit to work from.
For today’s layout, I’m documenting this photo of my boys on their last day of 6th grade! This one is extra special because it was their last day at that school and they will be moving on to a new Junior
High/High School next year!
I was inspired by the idea of a gallery wall when designing this layout. I’ve always wanted to create a giant gallery wall in my house but until then this will have to do. A layout like this is a great way
to bust through your stash and use up lots of the tiny die cuts, cut aparts, wood veneer pieces, cardstock stickers, etc.
After I got all of the bigger pieces down, I started filling in areas with stamps, small stickers, and wood veneer hearts.
I ask for alpha stickers on almost every style profile I submit and have lots to choose from but I needed something a little bigger for my title since it was just two words. I used my Silhouette Cameo to
cut out “last day” from some Pink Paislee patterned paper and then layered it on three layers of 110lb cardstock to create faux chipboard letters. This would be a great way to use up patterned paper scraps if you have an electronic cutting machine.
The journaling was typed out on a vintage typewriter but you could also print it from a computer. I do like to add my own handwriting to layouts but when I have a lot of journaling I prefer to type it
A strip of patterned paper, label sticker, and the date at the bottom of the layout help to keep it from being too top heavy. The 6×8 papers in my stash were just tall enough if I left the branding strip
on them…I personally think the block of color ties in well with the grid design of the layout.
I hope this layout inspires you to use up some of the little bits and bobs that you might have laying around your craft space!
Don’t forget to head on over to The Wild Hare Kits shop to request your hand curated kit!
Until next time!
