Write.Click.Scrapbook. | I Dream Of…

The November gallery has gone live at Write.Click.Scrapbook.!  This month’s theme is “Dreaming”, and I love the different interpretations of the theme from my team mates!

Here is my layout:  I Dream of Yummies Without Calories

As you know I’ve been on Weight Watchers since July 1st.  I’ve had some success but there’s also been weeks where my weight stayed stagnant.  I love to eat, so my dream would be to be able to eat everything I want to eat without gaining any weight, ha ha!  I guess it’s my humorous take on the November theme.

I took a screenshot of my “Noms” board on Pinterest

Then I cropped it to 4x6 at 300 dpi in Photoshop and printed it out onto 4x6 glossy photo paper.

I used my Silhouette digital cutter quite a bit on this layout, including cutting the title word “dream” out of American Crafts POW glitter paper, and “yummies” out of pink cardstock.


Embellishing the cupcake was really fun, as was filling in some of the heart cutouts with patterned papers.


I wrote my journaling in the cloud-shaped cutout, further emphasizing the “dream” part of my sentiment.  :)

As usual, I had so much fun creating my layout for Write.Click.Scrapbook. this month.  I love that the theme is a guide, but we can interpret it however we want!  You can see my layout in the Write.Click.Scrapbook. gallery here.  You can see the whole November “Dreaming” gallery here.  And you can see the gallery launch post here!
