Write.Click.Scrapbook. Layout | You’re My Favorite

It’s the beginning of the month and the December gallery at Write.Click.Scrapbook. has launched! This month’s gallery theme is Favorite Photos, and I’m completely blown away and inspired by every one of my teammates’ layouts!

See the whole December Gallery here.

See the gallery post here. Be sure to read the notes and fun facts from each team member. I found those really interesting and entertaining!

I chose this photo of Todd as my favorite photo right now. I just think he looks so handsome in it, and he’s standing in front of Ghirardelli Chocolate in San Francisco after all. Todd + chocolate = double favorite! :)

Here’s my layout for the WCS December Gallery.
Supplies: cardstock (American Crafts) + patterned papers (October Afternoon, BasicGrey, Studio Calico, American Crafts, Echo Park) + vellum paper (Strathmore) + embellishments (Freckled Fawn, BasicGrey, My Mind's Eye, American Crafts, October Afternoon, Studio Calico) + twine (The Twinery) + stamps (Studio Calico, American Crafts, Freshed Baked Paper Goods on Etsy) + ink (Momento, Prima) + digital graphics (Lauren Grier, Elle's Studio) + die-cut machine (Silhouette) + font (Blackout) + Photoshop Actions (Totally Rad)

I chose papers and colors that went well with my chosen photo. I chose the brown cardstock because it played well with the bricks on the Ghirardelli building in the photo, and because the turquoise colors really popped against the darker background.

Since the theme was Favorite Photos, I thought a banner of cameras strung up below the photo would be cute. I punched holes on the little paper cameras and used twine to string them up. 20121116-IMG_7985_600

Then I anchored them below the photo with two brads.


I used some washi tape to anchor the top, then I stapled my title banner onto it.

I designed the “You’re My Favorite” banner in Silhouette Studio and cut it out with my Silhouette digital cutter. If you like it, you can download the file below and use it on your own projects! :)
