Snips & Snails & Puppy Dog Tails Layout

I have more watercolor cards that I made over the holidays to post, but I wanted to get this layout posted of when we had the anatomy ultrasound to find out whether Baby #2 was going to be a girl or boy. (Boy, if it wasn't obvious from the layout title).

Between the ultrasound photos that were cut into triangles, I used Pinkfresh Studio ombre washi, including one space where I did a bit of journaling. For the other spaces, I added a bunch of wood veneers.

When I first started scrapbooking, I would sometimes print out my layout journaling from the computer because I was such a perfectionist. I switched over to doing handwritten journaling for pretty much every layout because I felt like the handwriting is more meaningful looking back on layouts down the road, in a way that printed journaling just isn't. That also means I occasionally make mistakes when journaling, which I've learned to live with or figure out how to creatively fix.

Before I did the journaling on washi tape, I did some quick research on what kind of markers worked on washi tape without smearing (primarily this "Best means of writing on washi tape?" question on the Studio Calico forums) and the consensus was the American Crafts Slick Writers. I also found, after some quick Googling, this Writing on Washi Tape post comparing different pens and markers on washi tape that seems helpful.

  1. Gorgeous layout! I used to scrapbook, but it takes me so much longer to create a page than make a card. So, now I only make cards. Also, lovely patterned paper choices and I HEART those wood veneer embellishments.
