Welcome back to Song of My Heart Stampers' new 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. I have been running a Scrapbooking Summer School on four consecutive Thursday nights in August, and I've issued them a challenge--complete thirty-one pages in just thirty-one days, and they'll receive a bonus pack of Designer Series Papers at the end of the month!
YOU CAN PLAY ALONG with us by challenging yourself to complete thirty-one pages, too, and posting your progress here on Song of My Heart Stampers. I also have set up a 31 Pages in 31 Days Facebook group, where you can even post pictures of your pages to inspire and encourage others who are taking the challenge, too!
I'm a little late posting today's pages because this spread is for Scrapbooking Summer School tonight, and I realized at about ten o'clock last night that I did not have enough of something I used on the original version of the left hand page. So, I had to create a new left page, which led to adding some different touches to the original right hand page, which meant the entire spread pretty much ended up totally different. But good different. Ever heard that saying, "Sometimes on the way to a dream, you get lost and find a better one?" I DO think the spread is improved after all my late-night tweaking.
This page will be perfect for anyone with boys, or for a graduation or big accomplishment-type layout. The colors are a fun mix of Tangelo Twist, Pool Party, Basic Gray and Whisper White, and a couple BOLD accents of Basic Black and Crushed Curry.
TIP: When you have a spread with such widely differing "hot" and "cold" colors for your main color scheme, accent with two different colors with that same "hot" and "cold" feel to help visually tie the page together. It will help it look like you didn't just pull the colors out of a hat and toss them on the page. So in this instance, the Tangelo Twist and Crushed Curry are hot, bright, intense colors, and the Pool Party, Whisper White, Basic Gray and Basic Black are cooler, neutral, laid back colors.
These pages have a lot of little parts and pieces, so I've got an exhaustive supply list for you today. Please be sure to let me know if you need any of these tools or papers and I will be happy to set you up! We could even have a book party or a Facebook party and you could gather orders and earn the hostess rewards. You can also order online anytime.
