Hey scrappy peeps! I had really hoped to have a process video to share with you today to accompany these Cocoa Daisy layouts however, the stars aren't aligned and that isn't going to happen. I had to update my video driver and apparently my already edited video didn't update with it. And while I'm sure there is a fix to it, I just don't have the time right now to research and fix. So, you get to view the layouts and enjoy them in their 2D glory!
I created this letter sized layout for the stamping blog post. The greens in the layout aren't that neon in real life... My options in editing the pictures were either that or yellow. Neither all that representative of the actual color but more green than yellow so that's what I went with. I used the stamp from this months kit and "heads and tailed" it, ie, I used it right way up then flipped it upside down to create the oval. I love the way it turned out and created the perfect frame for my pictures.
I think this layout is my favorite layout that I created from the February kits. I had a really fun video that showed my creative process and explained the story behind the layout. They aren't great pictures but it's a great memory and sometimes, that is what scrapping is all about - preserving the good memories. Better yet, I got Nikolas to write out his own journaling in his own handwriting! That is my boy's 14 year old handwriting on that page. Better yet, he didn't complain. Too much! I had such fun with the digital cut files, watercolor and hot air balloon stamps from the kit. And that cloud flair! Swoon!
I have a third layout that I had wanted to share without you however, not only is the video not working but the pictures are gone... I had issues with my laptop recently with files missing and apparently I was not able to recover everything... It's late as I draft this post so too late for picture taking. Which is fine, the process video that accompany the missing pictures layout is a technique process that I would really like to share. So, an excuse to re-take pictures and re-edit video! But sure to tune in again soon as I WILL recover from this minor fumble! I WILL NOT let technology get the better of me!
Edited - I was able to recover the process video for this layout, Brave, however the yet to be seen layout video is unrecoverable... I hope you enjoy this process video and watching how it all came together!
Thanks for stopping in!
