Thank You, Netflix | A Scrapbook Layout

I’ve been having fun creating some pop culture layouts lately. I did a layout a few weeks ago about transitioning from an iPhone to Android. While I love creating layouts with my photos and family stories, I also like documenting random slices of life as well. My Project Life albums actually hold more of this kind of thing. I don’t always want to create a full 12×12 layout of some of these things. But once in awhile, I do like to sprinkle in a few layouts like this.

It sounds kind of silly that a video service would have become so important to me, but I was thinking recently just how often I turn to Netflix to fill my entertainment needs. Just a few years ago I didn’t have time to watch movies or TV shows. But it’s amazing how much changes when you are laid off and suddenly have time to fill.

I found myself turning to Netflix when I was crafting daily and starting up this blog. I got to catch up on movies I never saw in the theater and finally watch TV series I never had the time for. Now that I’m working again, I’m back to just enjoying it on the weekends, but still, I don’t want to give it up.

I wanted to keep the background really simple. I tried a couple different pattern papers but in the end, felt that red cardstock was best to convey the Netflix feel. To add something in the background, I punched some strips from the EK Success Chinese Knot punch in the same color as the background. It is a subtle effect but adds the texture I wanted. Just a few wood veneer embellishments help guide the eye around the page and one the perfect piece of flair at the top gives the page a little more detail.

Simple but fun. I organize my layouts in the Library of Memories album system so this layout will be added to one of my Things albums. It’s for layouts like this that the Library of Memories system works so well for me. I already know that it will fit.

Do you ever create pop culture layouts to document these parts of  your life?

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Love that you documented this and I also love that red background! No Netflix here, but we did just sign up for DVR service, so I’ll be recording some new series when they start up.
