The Best of Times Layout

Best-of-Times-Croptoberfest-Kit Layout-Project

Hello everyone. Just recently, I came across a photo on my Facebook “On This Day” feed and came across a photo that I never scrapped. It was a favorite of mine too, but at the time, I did not have the right papers or embellishments to use for the layout. Until, almost four years later… As you can see, I do not scrapbook in chronological order; I scrapbook the photos that inspire me to scrapbook; photos and memories that I love…

The Croptoberfest Project Recipe Kit was perfect for these photos. The colors and patterns were just what I was looking for. And of course, I fell in love with the stickers. I just couldn’t stop adding them to the layout!


To complete this 12×12 scrapbook layout, you will need:

I used the cardstock as the base for this layout. Then I cut the striped patterned paper into an 11″x 11″ square and adhered it to the center of the base. Then I cut the yellow floral patterned paper down to 8″x 11″ and adhered it to the center, right-side of the layout approximately 1″ to the left side of the striped paper as shown. I used the scrap piece as a border by adhering the striped patterned approximately 1/4″ from the yellow floral patterned paper to show just a little bit of floral. Then I added the leaves border sticker above the striped border strip.


I printed two 3″x3″ photos, cropped into a square and adhered them to the top of the layout at an angle to leave space to tuck stickers behind the photos etc.


I cut the wreath sticker in half and tucked it at the top of the photo and the bottom to help pull the photos together. I added the “The Best of Times” sticker at the bottom of the colored photo, tucking the floral sticker behind the left-side of the photo. I used a foam square to pop the tiny gold heart between the title sticker. Then I added a few more florals to the bottom right-side of the black and white photo. I used a foam square to pop the little circle floral dot off the page and another slightly down the page to help frame my journaling.


Here is a closer look at the floral stickers. Arent’ they beautiful! I just love the orange!


I used a ruler and Black Dual-Tip marker to hand-journal my journaling.
