Alright, guys, I am so ready to finish up this album and I have literally smashed four weeks into two pages. Have a look at my process video for these last two pages in the 2015 album!
Ok, so these layouts are back to back, and I placed them into the same photo to show you the layouts to start:
And these are the layouts completed:
So for both of these layouts I didn't have a lot of photos, and the dates on the photos span a total of about four weeks. And you know what? That really is ok. At this point in the album, it is safe to say that I have documented the year of 2015 rather well, and so smashing these weeks together really is ok. For the first layout, Weeks 27 & 28, I chose some of Shimelle's products to bring the layout together.
These products are from Shimelle's True Stories collection, and I chose it because of the bright, happy colors and the fun elements. The transparency is an older one from Allison Kreft/Webster's Pages from several years ago.
I have used that transparency across the page and then I like to staple elements to the top of the page protector on this side.
One of my favorites embellishments from this collection are the wooden buttons! They are a little thick for the small pockets, but I used them anyway. They are too much fun to not use. Here is a look at this layout inside the album:
For the next layout I still used the same collection, and now I chose one of Shimelle's journaling cards for the date card.
For the transparencies on this side, I simply used red line tape to adhere the elements on top of the page protector. I also love the look of the vellum word strips on top of this red flower. So pretty!
In the spirit of simplicity and getting things done, I left the yellow card just as it was. Notice how I have used the floral embellishments in the corners so they don't take over.
I used another flower in the bottom corner, this one is blue. These colors are a lot of fun to work with and they seem to flow seamlessly in with the rest of the album.
Here is a look at this page in the album:
Part of me finds it hard to believe that this project is done, but the rest of me is incredibly excited. I will post a video tomorrow to celebrate completing this and to announce what is coming up next in the TBT series! I will see you then!
