Oh, Snap!

Hello everyone! Happy Sunday.

I've created another project for 2Peas NSD Challenges. (I swear this is the last challenge I'm going to do for this NSD) This one is for the first challenge, Focus on Photos. The theme is to use any photo-inspired products, which I have a few in my stash that needs to be used for they have been there for almost a year. I had my Sydney trip photos printed out in Instax format, and I had to layer them on top of one another like a photo strip because there are a total of 12 photos on the layout. 12, that's a record! Other than that, there's the photo-strip chipboard sticker from October Afternoon Boarding Pass Chip n' Stick that I've been planning to use for a while but couldn't find any idea on how to use it.

How do you like it?
The patterned paper base is from Echo Park Oh Snap Collection Kit. After layering down all the photos, I used Freckled Fawn Chalkboard Arrow washi tape to divide the layout to 2 sections. The top is for the photos, and the bottom will be the title and journaling. Then I added the photo-strip chipboard sticker from October Afternoon Boarding Pass Chip n' Stick

After that, I pulled out a lot of embellishments to decorate inside the photo-strip and on top and around my photos. 


Supplies (Embellishments):
  • Simple Stories Sn@p! Stickers, Icons and Letters
  • Amy Tangerine Sure Thing Dimensional Stickers; Cute Overload Tiny Matte Puffy Accents; Pigment Fabric Stickers; Bits Die Cut Cardstock Shapes
  • Basic Grey What's Up Die Cut Cardstock & Transparencies
  • Fancy Pants Swagger Sticker Fundamentals

Actually I didn't finish the layout on the same day. After decorating the top part, I stopped. Then on this afternoon, I spent some time on the bottom part, which is the title. Now, the photos already took a very large part on the layout and the title is quite large too, so I decided to skip journaling to make it less crammed. 

I used Amy Tangerine Lovely Thickers and a chipboard alphabet stickers (couldn't trace the source, the name on the packaging is incorrect) as well as October Afternoon Key Caps Sticky Keys to spell out the title. Added 2 tags on the right side of the title and on the left, a camera accent cut out from one of the PP from Echo Park Oh Snap Collection Kit and the 'location pin thingy' from Studio Calico Chipboard Shapes Stickers. Oh, and I used a black marker pen to color the Amy Tangerine Lovely Thickers because the cream color blends in with the background too easily. The cut out photo strip behind the title was added afterwards too, because even after making the thickers black, it's still difficult to read it.

I thought the photo-strip with various embellishments in it will be my favorite part on this project, but it turns out I like the title section more.

So that's all for my last layout for NSD Challenges. Now I'm gonna enjoy the remainder of my Sunday and try not to think bout Monday blue..

Good night!
