Hello Time | Michaels Make Every Moment Count Traditional Scrapbook Layout

Last week Katie and I took a little field trip over to Michael's to pick up some products to participate in their Make Every Moment Count Challenge.

This month they are offering a variety of sales and discounts on memory keeping products in celebration of Scrapbook Month. You can grab a coupon packet in the store.

Here's what I came home with:

Of course I found lots of fun things I wanted to play with - it's not hard. I was especially excited about those Brilliance inks. They are awesome little ink pads. I also got pretty excited about those giant MAMBI silver glitter alphabet stickers.

I got stuck for awhile in the specialty paper section - specifically the gold and silver - and ended up using the silver sequin paper on my layout.

Here's a look at the page I put together:

I started with a white 12 inch x 12 inch background piece of cardstock and printed my two photos to 5 inch x 5 inch.

And man, can I tell you that I spent way too much time today trying to get the color right on the photograph of my layout above? No matter what I did it kept turning out with that gray-ish/green-ish tint. Color-correction master I am not but I think you get the idea.

After that I cut some of the specialty paper (cork, burlap, and silver glitter) to 5 inch x 5 inch to start creating my accent blocks. From there I played around with placement.

I trimmed the cork paper after adhering the silver glitter Thickers from American Crafts. I used the Smash label maker to create the "then and now" and "yesterday" and "today" labels. I adhered the burlap with some Scotch rolling adhesive and then ran the whole thing through my sewing machine.

In the center of my page I added a Martha Stewart kraft oval sticker + one of the cork letter stickers from Little Yellow Bicycle + two silver mini brads. That whole piece got popped up with some foam sqaures.

On the bottom left square I hand-cut out the word love from the silver sequin paper (probably my favorite thing here). On top of the "o" I added a red star embellishment. Along the top of the cork paper I added "so much" using the Little Yellow Bicycle letter stickers. I love how it looks like it was cut with a Silhouette.

Around the edge of the layout I added my journaling and use ColorBox Cranberry ink to stamp two of my stamps from Technique Tuesday: Super Fantastic and All My Love.

Big thanks to Michael's for including me in their challenge!
