Project 12 May in June

FIRST: If you are looking for the blog hop, scroll down, it's the next post.
ALSO: Be advised.... label punches en masse have been ordered and will be in the shop soon in anticipation of future purchases for an aforementioned upcoming reason (vague enough for ya?).

(I really just wanted to say aforementioned again. Aforementioned. Makes me sound like I know I what I'm talking about, doesn't it?)

heeee.

On to Project 12:

Another month, another double page layout.

These next couple of months will be the true test because my family has so much going on. But that means I'll have a lot to document, so that makes this challenge even more important.

I really liked the submissions this month. As I mentioned... (oh, another chance to say aforementioned!) I struggled a bit with this sketch. It's very different from what I would come up with on my own. And that's why I loved it.


You can peek at my layout here. And as always, any questions you might have about Project 12 can be answered via the blue button on my sidebar, but if you do have anything, please leave a comment in the comment section and I'll try and answer it. That post also shows the sketch for June if you want to plan ahead.

As always, I wanted to share some of the fun entries on my blog last month:




LOVEd this one from Brenda. I was really inspired by the way she changed the design, used more photos, and utilized that WRMK paper. There's a piece of this in the Partly Sunny kit from Studio Calico for June. Loved every inch. Did I mention I loved this layout?



I love the color palette on this one from Jen. One of my favorite things about it, though, besides the fact she used Granny's Cupboard, one of my favorite kits from Studio Calico, was the fact she included a poor resolution photo on her layout. She said she was emailed it from her son's teacher. This project is a perfect place to preserve those photos. It's a moment she wants to remember, and years down the road, she'll be happy she saved the picture, rather than being critical of the quality in the photo.




Loved the scallops and the color palette on this one from Ashley. I love the different prints and patterns she chose, the bullet points, and the little flower she made with her round calendar. Super cute layout.



I loved what Andi did this month. Her journaling is about what happened at her house in April, but her photos are focused on one particular event. I love that! I also love what she did with the yellow alphas and the bracket. So clever!


Andi also has a tip. She was looking to find the dimensions on some of the papers in the sketch, so she "opened the sketch in Photoshop elements in the full editor and changed the file size to 12" x 24". This gives me the actual dimensions with a ruler on each side and I then I can see what to make all the papers cut to! "



Great tip Andi!


Just like Andi, Vanessa did her journaling about the month, but she too chose to focus on herself. I really really like how she changed the sketch here. I can see how she was inspired.






Thanks again for sharing your layouts! Remember to check the SCT blog here to see if you were a winner last month. That post I just linked is also the spot on the SCT blog to link your layouts if you don't want to submit them for the Facebook gallery.

Jillibean Soup is sponsoring the prize for next month! I love this line and would love a nibble of it myself!

Remember, you have until the 20th of June to link your layout to this thread. I look forward to checking them all out!

Have a great month!

Davinie

    Just completed my layouts for May, though I did use April's sketch... I messed that up last month, so I figure perhaps two wrongs would make a right (and I didn't want to use the same sketch twice to get back on track). Thanks so much!
