Switching Things Up with Andrea Gray

Sometimes you just need to switch things up a bit to push your creativity, and today Andrea Gray is with us to share a fun, new page in a different size using the Family Fun collection! Let’s see what she created.
Oh Family Fun! What an awesome collection! The colors and sentiments are the perfect jumping off point for all kinds of documenting. I had this cute picture of my nine-year-old and the colors in his shirt and hat were a perfect match with Family Fun so I ran with all the colors! The 6″ x 12″ layout size is new to me, but turns out it’s similar to the space of a traveler’s notebook, just bigger!

Layering is something I am always struggling with, so I want to practice more and more. Since I couldn’t decide on only a few die cuts and items to use, I figured this was a good place to work on improving my skills! I tucked a 3″ x 4″ journaling tag from the September 2017 Kit under the photo, along with a Family Fun Double-Sided Journaling Tag and torn paper from the Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection, then added the “love this smile” Family Fun Cutout, the Family Fun Bits and Pieces and the light blue Family Fun Blank Label.

A heart always belongs on a layout, so this one from the Family Fun Bits and Pieces went best here, where so I could continue creating the visual triangle of clusters.

At the bottom I added a nice big chunk of goodies, including the “currently” tag from the Family Fun Double-Sided Journaling Tags, puffy stars from the Family Fun Puffy Stickers and die cuts from the Family Fun Bits and Pieces that pop right off the page! I used staples within each little cluster to help them feel connected on this long and stretched out page.

The layering was so fun and easy to do with the variety in the Family Fun collection and I love how this layout came out!

Until next time, happy documenting!
