#makesomething \ a monthly challenge with Peppermint of One Little Bird One of our goals in 2014 is to make more scrapbook pages. We each have different reasons for wanting this. I didn’t do enough “creating for fun” last year. My mentality was why bother
wasting spending time on something if it wasn’t going into an album (project life or a photobook) in progress? I’m changing things up this year, giving myself space to create pages just for the sake of playing. Hopefully this monthly challenge will help me stick it out through the end of the year.
Here are my February entries.
1. A 12×12 digital layout (click on image for product/supply info).
2. 8.5×11 collage of all the photos I instagrammed in February. This is going into my 2014 Project Life Album, which I’ll talk about in more detail later this week.
3. 8.5×11 digital layout (Printed and ready to go into my 2014 Project Life album).
4. 8.5×11 collage of instagrammed photos in January. Originally I cut the 2×2 photos and placed them in a coin page protector but after I printed out February’s instagram collage yesterday, I think I like the way it looks as the full page with the white borders – not trimmed. I can easily just slip it into a regular 8.5×11 page protector. Also, I like the look of one enlarged photo so I redid January. Both versions are posted below.
I can’t make up my mind which version I like better. What I do know is that I am loving putting together these instagram collages. They take less than 10 minutes to complete, printing time included. Even if I get nothing else scrapped, these collages work provide a nice summary of monthly events and just like that I feel instantly “caught up” for that month.
