Numbers are so fun on layouts- I just can't get enough of them and many times they help out with the them of a layout if you are not sure where to start.
Here is a look at some layouts from the creative team using some numbers...
5 About You by Emily Spahn
I LOVE the bright numbers tags! They have the best colors, and when put together,they work perfectly as a scalloped border. I *really* wanted to use all 10 so I could get the full spectrum of colors, but only 5 fit on my page. ;) I used the colors of the tags as inspiration for the entire color scheme of the layout, choosing papers that matched their vibrant colors.
I love how Emily used the circle tags as a scalloped border- that is something I have never thought of doing before. Definitely going to try that.
Just the 2 of Us by Pamella Brown
I got the idea for this page from the 2 day hooray cut sheet line that said "just the two of us." I knew I wanted to use it for my title for a page about my husband and I"s trip to New Orleans. The vignette circle tags inspired the rest of the page. I punched my photos using a 2 inch circle punch, so that would be the same size as the circle tags.
I added the 2 day hooray flappers to some of the circle tags and put that through my punch again so there would be a nice, smooth edge. Once I arranged my circles in a way that was pleasing to me, I added some embellishments and stitching to each circle tag.
I love how Pamella layers embellishments and uses a simple circle grid to rotate the photos and embellishments.
Master's Tray by Marti Cobb
This year, my husband had the chance to fulfill a lifelong dream when he and I got tickets to The Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club. His favorite spot on the entire course was Amen Corner (a nickname given to holes 11, 12 and 13). I wanted to make him something to hang in his office as a reminder of our trip and I knew these 2-Day Hooray buttons would be perfect for it. Each hole on the course is named after a tree so I also listed the hole name with each number.
I have had my eye on these printer's trays for a while and am waiting for the right type of project to use one. I love Marti's simple take on this, especially because it is for her husband and it can be difficult to keep a masculine look with these types of projects.
