Hey scrappers! Thanks for joining me again today for Day Eight of 31 Pages in 31 Days! I've set the annual challenge to create a scrapbook spread or single-page layout every day in August 2017.
Today's inspiration page is one I created for Week Two of Scrapbooking Summer School. Read the details on my annual class series here. It's too late to register for this year, but I hope you'll participate next year!
This spread has a little hippie, flower-child vibe to it with the large-petaled flower and the fun, laid back color scheme. The base pages are Sahara Sand, with a mat of Emerald Envy. The other colors are Soft Sky, Whisper White, Basic Black, and Lemon-Lime Twist. I never would have paired all those together, but the Perfect Days Memories & More card pack made me do it : ) and it's fun!
Suggested Stampin' Up Color Combination:
Tip: not crazy about some of the card designs? Punch out elements to use to accent pages, or borders to add emphasis to photos. I'm not into pocket-style scrapbooking, but I sure am enjoying the card collections for use on traditional 12x12 pages.
Want to make these pages at home? Here's what you'll need to gather:
That's it from me today. We are right in the middle of chicken pox at our house, and there's lots of comforting and commiserating to be done. We have Kindles and Nooks and the X-Box and VidAngel, but sometimes you just need Mom to come and watch a movie with you, ya know?
So thankful that being a Stampin' Up demonstrator is my full-time job, and work from home and be there for my kids when they need it. If you ever want to talk about joining up just for fun or starting your journey as a professional papercrafter, I'm happy to chat any time! Because sometimes you just need a Lyssa to talk things through, ya know? : ) [email protected]
See you tomorrow for Day 9!
I never would have used this color combination either, but I really like it. I've done pocket scrapbooking for a few years now and want to go back to traditional, so this has been fun to see how you use the cards.

This was my favorite Memories and More pack when they came out, but I ordered a different one because it had matching dsp. I'm sooooooo glad you used it and showed me what to do with it!

I have accepted the 31 day challenge and am so glad that I did! I love the color combos that I would never have thought to use together. But I am having a problem deciding what pictures to put on the pages ... do the same colors need to be in the pictures or am I being to much of a perfectionist??? I LOVE to scrapbook but I have so many pictures that I feel overwhelmed.

I am always impressed with your layouts that use the "pocket cards" kits! I just seem to collect them and never use them, but now I'm getting braver seeing how you use them in so many ways!
