Welcome to Song of My Heart Stampers' blog series, 31 Pages In 31 Days! Every day during the month of August, I'll be posting a single or double page scrapbook layout for your inspiration. YOU CAN PLAY ALONG with us by challenging yourself to complete thirty-one pages, too, and posting your progress online using the hashtag #31pagesin31days. Hope to see your work out there in cyberspace, very soon!
Today's day eleven.... and our inspiration layout is a two-page navy and white spread that uses my favorite Designer Series Papers in the catalog--Floral Boutique.
I really like the flow of this spread. The eye starts in the lower left corner and travels in a diagonal line up and off to the right, landing on the photo mat with the "you are loved (a lot)" headline. I used my faithful Grateful Bunch stamp set and coordinating Blossom Punch for the theme on this one.
TODAY'S TIP: The base pages aren't showing up very well in the photos, but they have a white, tone-on-tone lattice embossing on them. They are from the Irresistibly Floral specialty paper pack. Typically you'd sponge or spritz them, but few people realize they can also be used plain for a more subtle look. There are several different florals, a great stripe, a dotted pattern, and this beautiful lattice in the assortment.
Blue and white is just so elegant together, isn't it? And these Floral Boutique patterns, handpainted by one of the talented artists from Stampin' Up, are charming. It was easy to pull the spread together in short order, with all these pretty elements to pair up.
I'm excited to make these pages tonight with my local Scrapbooking Summer School participants! Wish you could come, too! But here's a complete supply list so you can gather everything you need to make this layout at home.
