I am up on the SRM Stickers blog today with a fun layout I created using their Tiny Calendar Stickers! Yes, I layout using calendars!!!
INSPIRED BY | SRM Stickers Birthday Calendar
I was initially inspired for the idea of using the tiny calendars on a layout when I was trying to come up ideas for using the SRM Calendar Stickers back in July. I decided to create the more traditional calendar project for my first SRM Stickers project, but I knew this idea would have to be used at some point on a future layout.
TRENDS | Centered Design
I have been noticing a lot of layouts lately where the main elements are centered vertically and run from the top to the bottom of the layout. I found it an easy way to create and it worked well to display the row of mini calendars both above and below my grouping of photos.
TECHNIQUE | Pen Lines
A simple technique, but it adds a bit of a hand drawn feel to a layout. I also love adding borders and framing things, so the addition of some pen work helped frame the photos. I prefer to use a metal edged ruler and I placed it on top of my layout where I wanted the lines and I ran my pen along the edge. It makes them perfectly straight, especially if you are using the ruler on a magnetic and ruled cutting mat. ( I use the We R Memory Keepers cutting mat.)
