Hi again! I was up on the Scrapbook Circle Blog on June 8th sharing a few tips on my layering process. I'm not very tech-y, or technique-y for that matter...but I do have a few tricks when it comes to putting my pages together.

I usually start by grabbing the products I know I want to use, and just move them around with my photo on whatever background I have chosen. When I am pleased with how it looks, I take a photo with my phone. Here is the phone pic that I took of today's layout before I stuck everything down:
I also make pencil marks to make sure I start in the right place, and don't run out of room at the top or bottom once I start putting things back together. Here, I marked where the white space was going to be...
The picture and pencil marks are guidelines for putting my page back together, and I can add more detail as I stick things down...like hidden journaling and stitching.
I might even change things around once it's coming together, and add a few more embellishments.
I have a hard time committing...I have never been a peel and stick kind of girl. So, these simple tips have really helped me to get creative with my layering....and remember how to put it back together!
