If you've been scrapbooking for more than a day, you already know that most manufacturers have bar code strips attached to the bottom of their patterned papers that you simply trim off. Some manufacturers even print a coordinating design on one or both sides of the strip. If you're like me, you cut the strip off, and add it to your stash. Recently I made a few layouts, and had tossed the bar code strips aside only to notice they all coordinated pretty nicely. They became the perfect start to my next layout. **and even though this looks crooked and wonky, I promise in real life it is straight ;)
This was such a quick and simple layout. By layering the strips of paper along with my photo and just a few embellishments, I had a layout completed in about 15 minutes, including the journaling.
Oh how I wish every layout came together as fast as this one!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
