Do you play along with the Simply A Moment meme over at Simply Alexa?
I haven't shared any of them here yet but ... if you learnt anything about me from Push-Up Bra Blogging ... you'll know that they're all bound to make an appearance at some point. And you'll also have learnt that I'm not fussed about blogging things in chronological order so, despite not sharing January, February or March's pages ... here's Aprils!
'Month in Musings' printables on a non-number-themed page, not only to show their versatility to potential customers .. but to myself too because, let's face it, these are something I'm going to be spending a lot of time with, and I want to make the most of them!
And, when it came to selecting one to add to my 'moment' page ... what better design could there be but this one?!
This was one of those pages - do you do this? - that I thought I'd finished ...
I've been keping all my Simply A Moment pages fairly simple, with similar layout designs for continuity [again, not something I ever usually do ... I must be undergoing some scrapbooking evolutionary process!!] and I thought the [page had everything I wanted it to have:
- the photo from my original Simply A Moment post in April;
- the text from that post, printed off and tucked in a pocket behind the photo
- journaling block with a quote from the original blog post
- doily die-cut, washi tape
- and a title:
[You crafters will sympathise with me on that won't you? You must find all kinds of crafty oddments in odd places from time to time, don't you? Also - note how I didn't bother to pick it up when I saw it! Crafting is also a good excuse for not doing housework!]
And so ... I did actualy go back and pick up the stray sequin, to see if the colour matched my page and it did ... so I found some more [they weren't all on my carpet, the rest came from my embellishment box!] and glued a few, here and there, to my page:
Here's the final page again [to save your scrolling finger]:
... by adding a little bit of extra colour and interest they just seem to have made everything feel a little less 'naked'.
Like when a stripper leaves her hat on ...
The printables are available in:
Tomorrow I'll share a card-making approach to the new printables ... and it's on card for a boy.
In a craft-world of flowers and bling I know many of you like to see examples of styles suitable for the men in their life so drop back on Friday ... OK?
You can leave your hat on.
