Labor Day Weekend - Day 3 Inspiration (Mandie)

Keep those trimmers going... It's day 3 of our Labor Day Scrapbook Weekend and Mandie keeps us going with a double layout and a couple of cards!  

We typically think a title needs to go at the top or bottom of a layout, right?... But you will find that Mandie mixes up the placement of her tittles by placing them on the left and even right side sometimes too!  By adding a journaling card on the right and the title on the left, the layout is balanced.   Grounding her matted photos with two strips of paper at the bottom, and only using a few simple embellishments, puts this double layout in the 30 minute our less category!

Mandie uses the same design idea, strips of pattern paper or ribbon at the bottom, for the cards too.  Do you have extra tags in your scrap-stash?... if so, try making this card to use up those scraps and get the most out of your supplies. 

A little bit of stiching on the sun makes this card shine!

We hope you found time this Labor Day Weekend to scrapbook with us!...  and that you were able to scrap-lifted a few ideas from our Design Team to take some of the 'labor' out of scrapbooking!  It was fun to share all the great layouts and ideas from the Design Team with you.  More Design Team layouts will be coming soon.. we still have all of the September's layouts to share with you too!
