The Template

If you’ve browsed our Inspiration Tumblr, then you might have come across the layout that inspired this week’s template. One thing to notice, based on the inspiration and my project below, is that there are spots for 3 photos here!

My Project

Wow, I can’t believe this is the last one – I feel like I could still do so much more with this kit! As with past weeks, I used Eva Kipler’s Tree Hugger… Dirt Lover, the Flux Architect font and the DJB Jennifer font. No stitching this week – the layout was so element heavy already!


So, be honest, what does everyone think of the WAL project? How can I make the experience even better next time around?

We believe simple is not how your page looks, but how your scrapbooking hobby works. We have a free workshop called SPARKED and it is the best way to learn more about Simple Scrapper and start creating consistently.

    i love your layout! it is great.

    i have loved the work along project and it has really motivated me to scrap pictures that i may have never gotten to. and also caused me to scrap faster and in ways that i normally wouldn’t. also it made me learn how to effectively use a template instead of just looking at it and trying to recreate it! thank you.

    i think i would rather do a mini album or something like that next time. but would join another project like this if you had another one.

    I’ve had a great time participating in this challenge. I love your templates and keeping with the same theme and kit makes for an attractive grouping of LOs. I think it makes for better flow once they are put into an album. Thanks for hosting it. I hope to do another with you, if you do it again.

    One thing that I forgot to add on my coment at my blog! I loved seeing everyone’s LOs showcasing such different kits. I would actually like to acquire some of them myself… Carrie and Michelle from MD: Can you please post a link to where you got your kits, if you by any chance have that info?I loved the nautical theme on Michelle’s… it made for an interesting choice for a family theme… but it worked so well!! And I also liked Carrie’s kit simplicity and elegance… This challenge was a great way of showcasing a kit’s potential! Thanks again Jennifer for a great challenge… I would absolutely love to do anotherone… can we?

    Butterflygypsy, I loved the stiching on your LO. It looks great! Good job on the LO!
