Creating a record of your world

Sunday, March 4, 2018
Using the "camera you have with you", i.e. your phone camera, has made it cheap and easy to record the daily pieces of our worlds. Facebook and Instagram save these pieces for us and it's fun to go back through the years and remember these little things that moved us in the moment. These little things that make up our days, days that make up our lives.

"Create a record of your world" was a recent assignment I had as a creative team member at Get It Scrapped. Originally, I was going to collect many phone photos of the little pieces that make up my day, but when my two littlest kids bought some Lego kits at the store, I realized I would scrap about that. You see, little people and little Legos have been a part of my daily life for almost 15 years now. They are as ubiquitous in my world as any other things I could have told my story about.

"Little People and Little Legos" is a page that will always stay close to my heart. This is especially true as my older kids are moving their way through high school and beyond and I'm starting to feel like parenting life is turning from "when will they ever get bigger" to "I didn't have enough time with them". *sniff*

Here are some things I was intentional about when creating this page design. Hopefully, you can find something to inspire you for your next page! Also, check out the other interpretations over at GIS.

  • 3x4 vertical photo and matching-sized element (the "Lego") for placing journaling - could also place a pocket card there
  • vertical flow and strong horizontal balance
  • mixed alpha title
  • texture added with torn paper edges, stitching, and cork alpha
  • lightly burned creases in washi tape under the date sticker to give depth and realism
