Take Twelve - April layout

Supplies: cardstock (American Crafts, Recollections), patterned paper (Bella Blvd.), stickers (Bella Blvd.), camera and butterflies die-cuts (K&Co), alpha dies ad diecut machine (Lifestyle Crafts), circle punch(Marvy Uhida), stamps (Papertrey Ink)
How I love this project! I just hope I will be able to complete it. So far so good. I am missing March layout but I have the pictures and I hoped to make it the same time as April layout but I run out of the photo paper!  I am using similar format for all my Take 12 layouts - square pictures, approximately 3.25"x3.25" arranged on a page in a grid-like pattern. One strip of patterned paper, a title cut with Diesel Lifestyle Crafts alpha dies and few embellishments.

This month I wanted to include a lot of journaling. I took it directly from the blog post with the pictures. I glad I read it again because I had to fix few small things. We have Playstation 3, not PS2 like I wrote. Honestly, it is all the same for me :) I took the png file with the journaling tag from the Take 12 Guided Inspiration kit and  dropped it into a word document. I made it bigger and added a text box inside the tag for the journaling. I than printed it on a white cardstock and cut out inside the tag border.

I added stamped numbers to my pictures, few embellishments and viola, another month is done!
You can see my January layout here and February layout here.

I am off to buy more photo paper and to print those March pictures.


  1. neat what you did with the camera on the side!

    I really should try layouts like this - I take a lot of random pictures that don't really warrant a layout on their own, and this seems like a good option.

    Great page!
