Friendship Layout by Jamie

Hiya, Jamie here! I created this energetic page to not only capture an event but also my group of friends. We celebrated my bestie’s birthday at a local outdoor restaurant/concert venue. And just next to us, a group was having a co-ed baby shower. The theme of the shower was “llama”. They had a llama piñata, wore llama buttons and had llama photos taped around their area. Needless to say, we were completely entertained by this theme and slightly obsessed with discussing it. We tried to figure out what the llama theme might mean and could only come up with “llama mama”.


Llamas are kind of having a moment in design right now, as I’ve seen various products featuring the “no drama llama”. Which I think was the perfect title for this page! It captures the event but also perfectly describes our easy friendships. There’s no drama in this group and I love it!


To make the page, I primarily used the Shimelle Go Now Go collection with a little bit of Dear Lizzy Saturday and DIY Shop 4 thrown in for fun I’m play with numbers a lot when I’m creating pages. Since there are five of us in the photo, I used five different patterned papers (cut to five by five inches) and five different dimensional embellishments. I wanted the page to be fun and energetic, much like that night. So I fanned out the accent papers to create some movement.


I so badly wanted to incorporate a llama die cut on here but refrained. There are already two in the photos so no need to hit anyone over the head with it. Editing is one of the biggest pieces of advice I can give to new scrapbookers who are interested in design. If it isn’t going to add to the page in some way, then don’t include it.


Do you have any drama free friendships? Consider a llama as a icon to use when you scrapbook them!
