Jot Magazine: Issue 7

Have you seen the latest Jot Magazine?  Issue 7 is jam packed with pretty goodness and much, much more.  Pouring over this magazine with a cup of coffee is my favorite.  It's kind of like my Sunday tradition....even though I've seen it a zillion times, I just can't stop looking at it!!  I contributed a few layouts and Project Life spreads to this issue and I love both layouts.  The themes were different and fun this month, and I always love to switch things up and think outside of the box. 

This first layout was made for the polka dot theme.  I took a little bit of a twist on this theme and incorporated "polka dots" on my page using my circle punch, doilies, round elements and drops of paint.  I'm still kind of addicted to circles right now....

This layout was created using three of my favorite "things" (scrapbook related).  Old book pages, doilies and white die cuts are my go-to when I create pages, or even mini albums, so I played around with those ideas and came up with this page.  

I started by mod podging book paper all over my white background.  As you can see, I mixed up the orientation quite a bit to give a messy look.  Any of the edges that weren't completely sealed down, I frayed and folded up a little.  I love the texture and dimension it adds to my page. 

The rest of the page came together so quickly....some easy layering and embellishments and it was finished!


  1. I so love Jot magazine but I do wish it were a traditional paper publication that I could hold in my hands and keep forever. I think I may be a bit old-fashioned!

  2. Thank you for the inspiration. I made a layout with lots of circles:
