What do you love? Does it get featured in your crafting? Many of our G45ers create gifts and ideas for other, but forget to also make time to craft things that they love and things that are 'just for you.' We love the ideas from Romy Veul and Lori Williams today. They both feature important people or things in their lives and remind us that crafting is a way to express our life in a rich and beautiful way!
"I have a lot of photos of me and my boyfriend Jeroen. Although Valentine’s Day is still far away, I usually take the opportunity to scrap some of our love snapshots every once in a while. The Sweet Sentiments collection is just perfect for all kinds of love lay-outs. I cut out several Cupids from the papers and arranged them around the photo of the two of us, together with some butterflies, banners and buttons. " ~Romy
Her layered fussy cut pieces add so much to this page!
Next, we have this amazing Typography pocket scrapbooking page from Lori full of her love of Crossfit! We love that she crafted her love of staying healthy. She also features her best friend which is just fabulous.
"My best friend is such an inspiration to me in so many ways and I’m blessed to have her in my life. I had to create this 'Pocket Scrapbooking Style' layout highlighting the example she is to me during Crossfit. I must admit this was my first layout of this style and I was challenged in the beginning but by the end, I was sold. I felt like I was creating little mini works of art for each section and as much as I like fine details, that was perfect for me. The colors of the Typography collection really made everything pop with the black and white photos and helped to show off all the features and techniques. I created an easy tutorial for creating the mini book that’s incorporated into the layout so you’ll be able to create one too. So I challenge you...have you tried a Pocket Scrapbooking Style Layout? Grab your Graphic 45 and give it a whirl. I think you’ll fine it’s a lot of fun." ~Lori
