Welcome to the Scrapbooking Global May 2020 blog hop. This month our challenge was to create a layout with an interactive element. What a fun challenge. I had several ideas of what I could do but ended up having to do something simple for the simple fact that I ran out of time.
I’ve been collecting things to document life during COVID-19 and had every intention of using a travellers notebook size but this weekend I ended up completely changing gears and have decided to do it in our family 12×12 album.
The interactive element on the layout is the timeline. It flips up to reveal a timeline for each month from January to April. I’ve left a bit of space to add in May as well. The timeline is a resource that Persnickity Prints is offering as a free download. You can find it here. I simply printed it onto whisper white card stock and then cut it down to size.
The flower centres from the Poppy Moments dies ended up making perfect coronavirus’. However because the colours on this layout are soft and there’s snow in the one photo, I thought they looked a little like snowflakes. My solution was to add little circles to the centre of them using a journaling pen. It helped.
The photos were taken by my friend Tammy Boutin. They were the perfect addition to what will end up being the ‘title page’ to this part of my album.
