4 of 4… Silly, Chilly, Days

Posted in 2 page Layouts, Echo Park Paper Co at 8:37 am by Michelle

This was the last of the 4 layouts that I worked on & it’s also the one I spent the most time on, as I wanted it to be different than all the rest!! I just wasn’t sure how I was going to do that. For this layout, I took the 1st layout & flipped it upside down! Hope you like the way it turned out!!

And incase you hadn’t already guessed, I used the Echo Park‘s new “Winter Park” Collection again!! 🙂

As you have seen with all these pages, I don’t have my Christmas / Winter pics yet… so when I make layouts without pics, I have a set of white paper cutouts in different sizes that I use to plan the layout! So as I was playing around with the group of 4 “pics” on the right hand page, trying to decide on the sizes, I happen to leave a space in the middle… I though that it was a nice change from the 4 square pics that I was originally trying to figure out. This space allowed me to add a pop-dot or some sort of embellishment! (I don’t plan on sticking with the snowflake that if currently there, I won’t decide on what I’ll add until I add my pics… I just didn’t want to leave it bare!)

Also because I wanted the bottom of the pics to all line up, I had to be “creative” with my picture sizes, hence the 2 7/8 x 5 or the 2 3/8 x 5!!

When I remove the fake “pics”, I write the measurements down (as seen below), so that when I’m ready to add the pics, I can cut them to the correct size! It will save a ton of time when I get my pics!! 🙂

You will also notice that instead of the title “Snow” that is on the bingo card, I used the words found on the ribbon that runs across the bottom of the page – Silly, Chilly, Days!!

Oh 1 last thing… when I add the bottom right hand pic, I will round the corner… so 3 of the 4 corners will be rounded… I didn’t want to round the “Snow” bingo card.

Thanks for following this set of 4 layouts! Hope you enjoyed it!!

Till next time… Happy Scrapping!! 🙂
