It's time for a little scrapbook version of Throwback Thursday!
I remember being so in love with this collection from BasicGray. Between the beautiful color palette and those butterflies - it was perfection in my book!
I fussy cut the butterflies and arranged them with the intention to kind of look like they were flying diagonally across the layout.
I also added a few jewels with the butterflies. Back then I used those jewels from Kaisercraft all the time! I still have tons of them in probably every color they made and they still make it onto current layouts.
It quite possible that this was the first layout I used journaling strips on.
It seems like once I used journaling strips those became my preferred journaling look. I just love how you can custom fit them and wrap them around elements on your layout or photos. It makes them so easy to fit into otherwise tough spots.
I think the biggest takeaway I get from looking at the design of older layouts is how much less product I used back then. I don't know if was just a lack of comfort in my design style or if there just wasn't as many embellishments options. Probably a combination of both!
