Today is registration day for the Stampin' Up convention and I am so excited I just have to celebrate! Leave a comment on this post by August 20th to enter to win 100 DIFFERENT PATTERNED PAPERS and a free set of Scrapbooking One-Sheet Wonders Volumes 1-6. WOW!!! One lucky winner is going to have a ton of fun in the coming days with this GIANT PRIZE!
Fine print--US residents only. Deadline to comment is August 20th, 2018. No purchase necessary to win. Must have valid email address and contact me with shipping address no later than August 27th or a new winner will be drawn.
Ok, go leave your comment so you don't forget.... I'll wait... good? ...ok. Now we can get to today's inspiration pages!
Today's spread is a party-hat page using the Broadway Bound papers and a great color scheme of Melon Mambo, Smoky Slate, Basic Black, Granny Apple Green and Lemon-Lime Twist. It was so fun taking this layout from two sheets of solid hot pink to a fun coordinated spread with a cute blend of patterns and plenty of photo space.
My personal favorite part of the page is this fun journaling "box" comprised of torn strips on a single mat. It's so much more fun and interesting than a solid rectangle of white would be in the same space. Designer tip: if you're short on space, use paper strips laying across your photos to save journaling room, and fit more photos on a layout.
I wish you could see the sparkle on this page.... someone needs to invent a camera or a special light that makes glitter show up better! Sparkle Glimmer Paper is a great no-mess accent for the border strips I trimmed out of a sheet of Broadway Bound patterned paper.
There we have it--tomorrow we're halfway through our challenge! See you back here for Day Fifteen. Oh and PLEASE feel free to pass this link around to your friends to enter to win the drawing. Maybe if one of them wins the 100 Papers, they'll share some with you!
Thanks for all the great ideas!

Can't imagine the mess I would be in mentally trying to do 31 scrapbook pages in 31 days. I scrapped wholeheartedly for about 5 years when we had an active demo who held monthly crop nights......have my youngest child (now age 30) scrapped up to January of his senior year in high school.....next to the youngest child has a scrapbook of his baseball journey but nothing else is done (he is 33). My girls have boxes of memorabilia waiting scissors and glue ( they are 40 and 45)....In my defense, I bought the girls loads of albums, papers and tools but those haven't been used either).... So I think I need to win this Lyssa---it would motivate me to get going again.

Super cute layout! I think I may just CASE it exactly! Love!!!
Posted by: Mindy Clove | 08/14/2018 at 04:09 PM
I love how you used the Broadway Bound DSP! The colors are so fun but a generic layout for any birthday celebration. Thank You!
Posted by: Sharon Undt | 08/14/2018 at 04:47 PM

I read another ladies post about how much scrapbooking she has to catch up on. I am in the same predicament. I have a 40 year old, 37 year old and 4 vacation books to scrapbook . Sometimes it is just so overwhelming I just don't know where to begin. I always have good intentions, but other things seem to have to be done first. I keep saying, "when I retire" I will get caught up. Well, thanks for the chance to win! :)

I was a Creative Memories instructor for a few years and scrapbooked like crazy. Then I got too busy and dropped CM and scrapbooking. My grandaughter is a sophomore in high school and has no album from me!!! :( Both grandsons have theirs. I MUST get back to it and OSW could be just the motivation I need. With the bonus of papers to start me off their could be hope for her album! What a great offer!
