Welcome, dear crafty friends, to the very first day of 31 Pages in 31 Days, our annual blog series on immersion scrapbooking! If this is your first time through, sit back and enjoy a parade of pages as I share a scrapbook layout every single day in August 2017!
Not a scrapbooker? Never fear! You will not be out of luck for a month. You're going to see plenty of up-close inspiration, creative ways to use embellishments, stamps, die-cuts and more. I'll be posting all the typical features you've come to know and love from Song of My Heart.
It's going to be a CRAZY ride for the next 31 days, so hang on to your hats! Let's do this!
REMINDER: My pages are just for inspiration--you can play along by making a page today on ANY topic you want, and sharing a pic on the Facebook support group or on Instagram with the hashtag #31pagesin31days.
Today's share is a single page we'll be making in Scrapbooking Summer School this week. I made mine for a cabin spread, but other headlines that would fit would be camp, hike, lake, woods, drive, lodge, etc. Instead of using the die-cut leaves, I used the "negative" leftover cardstock to let the paper underneath show through the Old Olive layer.

One of the fun things about this page is how the layers are cut. You will notice, if you stick around Song of My Heart very long, that I can't STAND putzy measurements. It just saps all the joy out of papercrafting for me. So I designed this page to use two card-base-sized half sheets of 8.5x11 plus a strip of 8.5x2.5 inches and a square of 2.5x2.5. NO WASTE! This is my kind of project.
There we have it! Our first day of 31 Pages in 31 Days. I hope you will join us for Day Two, tomorrow, and a Christmassy spread with an easy motif that works for birthday pages, too. Thanks for stopping by!
