If you're just joining us, welcome to Day Seven of my annual scrapbooking challenge, 31 Pages in 31 Days. This one-of-a-kind blog series has been going on for many years now! You can view hundreds of past years' worth of pages here. Read about immersion scrapping and why it works here. Ready to play, or just want to see what everyone else is doing? Join the Facebook challenge support group here.
I hope you'll play along if you can, and if you can't, pin the sketches, color combos, embellishment details and whatever else caught your eye and save the inspiration for later.
Today's inspiration pages are a quilt-inspired bonanza of patterns from the Whole Lotta Lovely and Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper packs. Some of the patterns are a bit much in a full sheet of 12x12, but they pair together so perfectly, it's easy to make a "random" page that actually color-coordinates quite well.
Ha ha! I just noticed how much higher the left-hand page is than the right. Hmmm.... I will have to see if I can get that moved down. Probably once it's in the album not a soul in the world would notice except me. But it would bother me every time I looked at it!
The borders are simple. Just punch out 2 circles (I used a 1.5 inch punch) from each pattern of paper, and slice in half. Use the four halves to decorate the top and bottom edge of an 8.5 square mat. The title is from the Happy Celebrations stamp set and could be colored in, if desired. I'll wait to see what color I can draw out from the photos.

I would love to use this idea with lots of paper packs I have! The color combinations are endless!

When I first saw this layout, I thought Christmas. This would coordinate so well with the wreath layout from several days ago. Another versatile layout.
