I really stretched the Scraptastic "It Takes Two" kit. Today I've got another video where you can really see my process in creating a layout.
Unfortunately, my camera battery died so I wasn't able to capture the end of the layout on video, but I think you can get a good idea of how I place my paper layers.
You'll notice some background noise in the voiceover. My husband and boys were playing Mario Party across the house and my microphone is apparently VERY sensitive. :)
Here's the finished page:
How do you create your layouts? Do you measure all your papers, or just eyeball it like me?
