June is just about past us and that means it's time for Layout Love! Wait.... what? No Linky?
Ah yes - you read that right!
This month marks 18 installments of #LLL - that's 18 rounds of tags and random RAK. Not to mention hundreds of fabulous link-ups from all of you!
But, it's time to change things up.
With this post we say goodbye to #LLL....
And hello to a new little something that we will call "Monthly R and R" -
the R and R standing for Roundup and Recap.
But before we get to the details on all of that, let's take a look at some unblogged layouts!
June was full of scrapping fun...
I pulled some more leftover letter stickers to create title prompts:
And dove right into Camp Scrap with May Flaum...
Using inspiration from all things Campy and Scrappy, I created some album cover pages:
Put my stamps to use:
Played around with layering:
Used some sketches:
Put some of the stash to good use:
Focused on telling some important stories:
"Stepped" out of my comfort zone:
Scrapped some ephemera:
Whew! That was a scrappy month full of fun!
And so marks 18 months of Layout Love Linky and 18 months of tag fun:
That tag up there on the bottom right will be sent out to our lucky winner, Katie! I just love the fun colors and textures in her mini. Katie blogs at punkprojects.com. Be sure to check it out!
Just a little thank you for reading here at The Mailbox and for linking up :) Katie, please email me: soaphouse at gmail dot com - with your address, so I can send you your goodies!
Now - what's this Monthly R and R (#MonthlyRR) that I speak of?
I'm so glad you asked! A lot happens in a month, ya know? Cool things on the web, brilliant and inspiring blog posts, new products, favorite techniques, and layouts that didn't get their own blog post here at Purple Mailbox.
So.... #MonthlyRR will be a newsletter of sorts, highlighting all of the above and maybe just some random fun. The Roundup and Recap will be posted once a month toward the end of each month. It is destined to be a longer post - much like this one! HA!
You all are so inspiring. I have so enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing your favorite projects each month. And... I look forward to highlighting some of your awesomeness in future Roundups!
And while I am babbling about all of this... any requests? I would love to know what you are most interested in seeing in a monthly review of this sorts. Let me know in the comments below!
Alrighty! Here's to a great July - we shall review it soon... in the first edition of Monthly R and R.
See you soon!
