Making Faces & My Journey With You | Digital & Hybrid Layouts

I follow a few blogs that talk about "birthday goals"... activities/projects/travel they want to do before their next birthday. I like the concept of setting goals but sometimes the follow through can be a bit challenging! But when I turned 28 back in March I mentally challenged myself to create 100 layouts between my 28th and 29th birthday. Two months later and I'm not quite on track to complete that goal, but I'm close. I should probably go back and actually count the layouts I've created, both digital and traditional/hybrid layouts, and I plan on doing that this week. But for today I have two new layouts to share. One is using Karla Dudley's new kit, Blah, and one is using a Karla Dudley cut file + a couple of past Studio Calico kits. 

First up is the digital layout:

 (Supplies -(Karla Dudley) Polka dot patterned paper, journaling card, alpha, brushes, sticker, tag: Blah. Blue patterned paper: Butterfly. Frames: Polaroid-ies Set No. 1. Definition: Life Defined. "So you" brush: KD Life 365. "Love you": Take Note. Staples: Digi Essentials. (Scotty Girl Designs) Date Stamp and Skinny Stitches.)

Up next is my hybrid layout. I used this cut file from Karla Dudley for a white title. I'm not thrilled with how the layout photographed... it was getting late here and I was losing daylight. But the title shows up really well in person. And my journaling is also legible, although it does fade a bit in the middle.... my pen ran out of ink and I had to find another one half way through journaling! I used my Studio Calico Spencer's Project Life & Card Kit for this layout:


(Yes, the more I look at it, the more it's bothering me... I will definitely re-photograph and update tomorrow.)

I am waiting for Evan and Mark to return from the soccer fields... Evan had evaluations tonight to join the "select" team with our soccer club. I am so nervous for him! Of course I told him that the tryouts are "no big deal" and he should try his best, but I'm really hoping he did well. He looked cool as a cucumber when I dropped him off... I'm sure I was way more nervous than he was!

I'll be back soon with a couple of cards and a tag. Thanks for stopping by!

Your layouts are so adorable! You are so brave with your use of negative space, I have to limit myself from filling it all in.

I really LOVE that hybrid layout! Love the title work. It photographed fine - white is hard. You did a great job!

Oh, these are both wonderful!
I love how you used the Ali Edwards stamps on the second layout and how it's on a tilt like that-- fabulous!
