This is our life...


Hello everyone!!  It's Stephanie here today to share a fun way to incorporate lots of everyday photos into one layout.  

I love adding little snippets of our everyday life into layouts.  And I love looking through my photos and choosing pictures that tell our "everyday" story. 

For this layout, I decided to use an entire pack of the Everyday Life II Date Tags on a layout.  I love adding a grid pattern to my page and all of these tags together worked perfectly!

I printed out my pictures at about 2 inches each so they would fit nicely below the little captions.  I punched a hole and added some string to give a little more texture and depth to the page and then randomly added some embellishments I had laying on my desk.  To finish the page, I used my sewing machine to stitch all the way around my tags.  Then I added my journaling to the outside of the stitching, kind of like a frame.  




Here are a few details shots!




I love how versatile and fun these tags are!!

So I challenge you to scrap your "everyday" moments!!  Grab some of the Everyday Life II Date tags and get to work!!  If you are inspired to create something, please share your project in the comments section!!  I would LOVE to see them!! 

Happy Wednesday!!
