We're trucking right along with our summer blog series, 31 Pages in 31 Days! Thanks for joining us here at Song of My Heart for a fun month of immersion scrapbooking. Are YOU up to the challenge?
First things first! We have our THIRD blog candy winner.... drum roll please! Congratulations to Lynn Tetzloff, winner of Week Three! She has won a package of scrapbooking goodies retailing more than $50. Contact me at [email protected], Lynn!
Not a winner this time? You can enter our FINAL week for the GRAND PRIZE drawing by leaving a comment on any 31 Pages in 31 Days blog post of the week, beginning today. U.S. Residents only, please. No purchase necessary to win. Good luck!
Today's inspiration page will help you celebrate someone special! Birthday? Graduation? Retirement? It all works.
This spread is for our final Scrapbooking Summer School session this week, and we're working on using up our Pop of Pink specialty Designer Series Paper and our In Colors cardstock pack. For this layout we used the gold-foil-embossed sheets (can't see the gorgeous gold sheen too well in the photos, sadly!) and paired them with Delightful Dijon and Dapper Denim.
TODAY'S TIP: Love the new ruched ribbon (pronounced rooshed) tied with thick white Baker's Twine, and how much texture is added with the Confetti Stars Border Punch, too. All sorts of fun things going on here. When I am "done" with a page, I sit back and try to determine if I have at least three kinds of texture on it.
Have I used Stampin' Dimensionals dots to subtly raise some pieces up? Do I need another layer on the focal point photo mat to give it more gravitas? Did I mix two or three textiles? Is there a barren, flat spot that needs more dimension? These sorts of questions separate the amateurs from the pros. Take your crafting up a notch by taking one more look before it's done!
Want to recreate this page at home? Here's a complete list of everything you'll need to gather up and have on hand:
Supplies Used for "Let's Party" page:
- Whisper White 12" X 12" Card Stock

Lyssa, this page uses some great pinches and decorative elements! Makes me feel like getting out some of my punches, and using them in new ways.
Curious if you ever frame your pages? I keep thinking this would be a great idea, to enjoy special pictures as home decor.

What a great layout. I love how you used white as the background layer and then added all the different colored layers on top. The gold accents really add a lot of wow - love it :)

One of my favorites so far. Love the color combo and agree that the ruched ribbon is the best! Always love this time of year with you! 💕
