I was so excited (and terrified) to be included in Jenni's "8 Is Enough" challenge at Ella Publishing. The challenge: stretch only 8 products to make as many pages as possible.
I'm so bad at working with limits when it comes to this hobby. But I have to say, this was one of the most liberating experiences ever. I could have made 5 more layouts with this set of 8 products:
I made 3 pages for this challenge (and will continue to make even more - as they are giving my Disney album an awesome sense of continuity - a huge side bonus to supply stretching!) Here's are some detail shots of the 2 layouts that are on the Ella blog.
and here's layout number 3:
My simple stretching tactics: select patterns with similar color intensity, use only small amounts of said patterns, cut the paper embellishments apart, use letter stamps, and use the waste where you can. (for instance - the waste from the punched circles on the Dumbo page re-appears on the page above in between the 2 photos - can you see it?)
