Favorite Personal Layouts from 2018

Continuing with my 2018 reflections, today I'm looking back at some of my favorite personal layouts from 2018. This was the year that I really went all in on my paper scrapbooking, mostly working in smaller notebooks, but really enjoying myself. I also finished my fourth year of weekly pocket scrapping! This habit is really what frees me up to make all the paper shenanigans I do. Since I have this "official" and digital record of our lives, whatever else I get done is just for fun and icing on the cake.

My first favorite weekly spread. For this one I actually scraplifted this layout from Rachel which I was obsessed with.
I was as happy with my layouts, as I was looking at Rachel's

In 2018 I also made a photo book for our trip to Kenya in 2017.
This project is also known as "that time I discovered layout templates make your life a lot easier."
Highly recommend those layout templates. 5 out of 5 stars for getting a project done in a reasonable amount of time.

2018 was also the year I got into junk journaling. I love this spread, mostly because of the little hat.

The vibrant colors of the photos and the bundle in this spread really make it stand out.

This is a true hybrid page in my travelers notebook. Actually printing and using my designs in a hybrid page like this one has fundamentally changed my design process. And I'm hoping will ultimately make my designs richer and more versatile for all kinds of scrappers. Looking forward to more of this in 2019.

This layout is another scraplift. I wanted to up my clustering game.

I think honestly what I like about a lot of these spreads is when I include the photo collages. More cute photos? Yes please! And I don't even make these collages. The Google Photos assistant makes them and sometimes they're good and I include them in my scrapbook!

Another favorite from my Kenya photo book. I think I may have a secret love of orange.
In 2018 I was quite obsessed with purple. I'm not sure I can handle a 2019 obsession with orange.

Occasionally I'll purchase a digital collection from outside of Pixel Scrapper.
I always love the designs from Allison Pennington at the Lilypad.
Her colors are great and her patterns are so fun!

I shared this layout on Instagram and it was liked over a thousand times. I like it pretty well too. You can't beat black and white and pink.

Another sweet hybrid layout using the Good Life November bundle.

This following spreads use some of my favorite designs from 2018.
