Here's a couple of my favorites from the projects we did the morning of the All-Day Scrapbook Marathon. While there were fun color combos and neat little elements on all eight pages, these two were my favorites! It's just really hard to beat rainbow colors on a solid white background, and layouts composed of lots of little squares are some of my very favorite to make. They're versatile, too, because you can fill up as many or as few squares as you want, depending on how many pictures you have to scrap.I used the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Papers for instant rainbow fun ((#126902, $10.95).
This is a really trendy, minimalist page layout with lots of visual "white space," using the First Edition specialty Designer Series Papers (#121878, $12.95) and the new Print Poetry DSP stack ( (#129312, $6.95). I embellished it with some Basic Gray stitched ribbon together with the big brushed-nickle one inch buttons and some of the Sale A Bration 2013 reward choice buttons from the Sycamore Street embellishment pack in Pool Party.
I also used some of the paper flower pieces from the Pop-Up Posies kit (#131395, $12.95). They kind of looked like paper fans, which I thought was a great echo to the print on the background page, which is the history of the cherry blossom, heavily featuring Japan, of course. Fun!
I looooooove scrapbooking! If you need inspiration to get out of your scrappin' slump, look no further! Click on Scrapbooking in my blog menu to see hundreds of past pages I have done in Scrap A Stack classes and clubs, including 31 Pages in 31 Days from last August's Scrapbooking Summer School, and then I have two more posts of pages to share from the Marathon.
