My Office 12×12 Layout by Keri Babbitt: June’s Less Work More Play Kit, 2012
There are times when it’s important to focus on decreasing the amount of work we’re putting in because we need more time for play, but then…there are times when we’ve got the perfect balance. Then there are those times when we hate to admit it, but we’ve had work on the back burner for a bit too long and we just can’t stop PLAYING! But the best of times…the VERY best of times are those times when our work is our play.
That’s what Keri Babbitt’s The Office 12×12 Layout made me think of when it came through this month. Keri, one of the lovely Little Black Dress Kit Club Design Team Members, continues to provide us with the perfect combination of “vintage and modern.” Her latest scrapbook layout is the perfect commemoration of HER as she features her office. I don’t know about you, but the office space is a very telling spot for us here at LBD Kit Club. Use your Less Work More Play scrapbook kit to put together something showing off your work space and post it on the LBD Kit Club Facebook wall. We’d love to see all the different spaces and locations that are allowing scrappers across the world to have some fun Little Black Dress style.
I love Keri’s detailed cutout of the “office ladies!” It’s fabulous. And it made it just that much better that they’re popped out from the page and accented by her teal trimmed buttons (in varying colors) and backed by the solid cream circles against the very colorful green polka background. I love the amazing amount of color with snippets of neutral space thrown in. Keri has a knack for making all the colors seem even more colorful and vibrant.
Journaling: “Love this space. My creative space. It’s so me.”
I love Keri’s concise journaling. It’s just what’s needed to make the page more meaningful without pulling away from the design of the layout and the photos. Thanks for sharing Keri! We love your work!
