Hi! I'm Ann-Marie Morris and I am a 25 year old graphic designer/crafter, currently in the process of moving back to my home state of California after living in Utah for almost two years. I worked for American Crafts since 2010 and had the privilege of working alongside some amazing designers. When I'm not designing or crafting, I love to decorate my apartment, take as many Zumba classes as possible, thrift for fun finds, and spend quality time with family and friends. Oh, and I might be a slightly obsessed with Pinterest and Instagram :) You can find out more about me at my blog
.Here's how this layout came together:
It's always my goal to find new and innovative ways to use products, so when I saw the Layered Number Cut Outs
, I knew I wanted to use the whole sheet as patterned paper.
First I cut off about 2" from the top and then stapled two sheets of vellum atop the Layered Number Cut Outs sheet, to tone down the vibrant colors and patterns.
Once my base was complete, I started adding all my favorite Elle's Studio products, including Lil' Snippets "This Week
;" Christmas Large Journaling Tags
; One and Only Tidbits
; and Handmade Layers Cut Outs
, to name a few. I also included a variety of other manufacturers' products, such as Pebbles' Jewel Candy Dots
, a wood veneer from Studio Calico
, a striped paper clip from EK Success
, and vellum from Paper Source.
Since the topic of my layout is all about the highlight of my week, I decided to include it in my Project Life album, sandwiched in the middle of the spread. All I had to do was punch two holes on the left-hand side of the layout and pop it in! Simple, easy, and an effective way to include a longer story in your Project Life. I am definitely going to try this again in future weeks! :)Our Make It Sunday blog series has been taken over by past members of our design team! We are so excited to see their work featured again, here at our site! Look for a different past design team member each week.
