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.
A little apology for the photos today--my camera was going NUTSO trying to focus on all the different patterns!
Today's inspiration page is based on a very adaptable sketch (below). I made mine using the Perfect Days Memories & More card collection from Stampin' Up, but you can sub in any 3x4 cardstock or patterned paper pieces.
Cool tip: The sketch can be rotated in any direction and it still works!
Right page above, left page below (sketch rotated 90 degrees)
These pages were a breeze with the Memories & More card packs. It would have cost a LOT more to get paper in all these different patterns, use small amounts of each piece, and then have lots of leftovers to try to use up. I love how the Memories & More packs give me so many more coordinating patterns, but in card-sized chunks, so that I'm not using the same patterns on page after page. Boring!!
Ready to try this sketch at home? Recreate my spread with these products. Shop at these links and I'll get a little kickback that helps support Song of My Heart and our fun challenges and blog series like this one!
Some close-ups here so my Scrapbooking Summer School participants can see how I did the embellishments....
There we go! Day Seven is in the bag. Join us tomorrow for Day Eight and a fun, flower-child inspired layout!
And don't forget to be leaving comments on every official 2017 31 Pages in 31 Days post, for a chance to win the entire selection of sample pages from this year's Scrapbooking Summer School class series.

Pair it with pink or blue, this layout works either way and with many other colors as well.
