Our Layout of the Week, Joy, comes from our member Natalie (username natalieelph). We love Natalie's merry and bright notebook spread. To keep up with Natalie and see more of her work, be sure to follow her here at SC.
Here's what Natalie has to say about her project:
I'm working in a notebook this year for my December album for something different. I tend to refer to it as my "not quite a December Daily" so I don't feel as much pressure to fill it in every day! I'm wanting to focus mainly on my photos and the story behind them and keep my embellishments quite flat so that I can still close the notebook at the end, but of course, it still needs to be pretty! For this spread I started with a 6x8" card from Feed Your Craft and although I debated long and hard about whether I was brave enough to cut it in half that was the only solution to being able to include it. There was still enough space around the edges to include my photos, the corresponding set of 3 embellishments and lots of handwritten journaling.
