Glitz: Day-to-Day

Hello!  On Tuesday my first post on the Glitz Design blog went live!  Here is a look at what I did with a focus on scrapping the day-to-day. 
Capturing daily life photos has become a great priority to me. I am well aware that time does indeed "fly by" and taking the time to photograph and document the every day moments have become my favorite memories to scrapbook. I still love to scrap the big events, but I find that the moments in between are what I treasure the most. Luckily, with the convenience of a camera phone, Instagram, and apps galore, capturing daily life is easy and fun.
One way in which I document my day-to-day pictures is through traditional scrapbooking.

Here, I printed out two Instagram photos of my daughter playing hide-and-seek and paired them with the bright colors of both Brightside and Felicity to put together an 8.5x11 layout.

To soften the impact of the bright yellow and pink, I layered my papers with white cardstock and a neutral grey patterned paper. The silver glitter tape adds interest to the layout without overwhelming and white machine stitching gives the layout a little bit more texture.
When scrapbooking pictures of daily life, I always try to ask myself "What is the significance of this particular moment?" and let my answer guide my journaling. Certainly, when I saw these two pictures of my daughter I thought that they were were super cute, but that was not necessarily the story I wanted to tell here. What made these meaningful and important to me, were that they were a reminder to myself that even though my job as a stay-at-home mom means lots of chores and cleaning and day is also full of these really fun, loving, and often random moments that I am so thankful for.
