Gossamer Blue // Making Photos Coordinate

Hey all you crafty babes! This month I am sharing how I made a week’s worth of photos that were not coordinated at all play nicely together on the same layout! Because I do weekly life pages – every week’s photos are a surprise! Holla if ya hear me!?!?

So, with each week being a challenge, how do we get all of these mis-matched photo to work together in harmony?


Well, you pick the cards that have similar hues and shades and you work in coordinating colors with embellishments.AndreaGray_MayLifePages_PHOTO2

Here is the final layout and for details on how I got from A to Z, head on over to the Gossamer Blue blog to check it out!



Supplies used are from the following kits: March LP Kit / May LP Kit / May LP Add-on #3 / May Main Kit / May LP Main Add-on

Happy scrapping,

Day in the Life 2016 // photos & video

Photo Apr 11, 5 09 06 PM
hey all you crafty babes! did you play along with ali’s day in the life project? this is probably my favorite photo project of the year! i just love getting detailed and specific shots of all the things that happen during our day. it’s a closer look than just the weekly details i capture regularly.

i asked my husband and kids to take photos during the day too since we aren’t together during the daytime and i really wanted their perspectives in this project!

i have a flip-thru video for you today and i take you through the whole project and as usual, there are detailed photos below! i sure hope you are inspired to dig in to your own day and capture something that you can look back on with joy!
