Welcome to Song of My Heart Stampers' blog series, 31 Pages In 31 Days! Every day during the month of August, I'll be posting a single or double page scrapbook layout for your inspiration. Today is Day 27!
YOU CAN PLAY ALONG with us by challenging yourself to complete thirty-one pages, too, and posting your progress online using the hashtag #31pagesin31days. Hope to see your work out there in cyberspace, very soon!
Our inspiration layout today is a fun, nautical-inspired layout with an unexpected use of the Cable Knit embossing folder. Wood Textures paper makes the headline come to life, and the brads, burlap and twine add to the seafaring feel. What would you use this page for?
The measurements for this layout are so easy I'll just share them right now. The Night of Navy Strip is 2.5 x 11 inches and the Calypso Coral and Soft Seafoam strips are 1 x 11. The four full mats are 4.25 x 5.5 inches, and the two skinny mats or journalling areas are 5.5 x 2.5 inches. Lastly, the embossing Cable Knit Strips (Very Vanilla) are about 1.25 x 6 inches.
This layout is AWESOME for using up skinny strips of scraps. You can easily sub in patterned papers, too, and get a completely different look. If you decide to recreate this exact look, here's what we used in Scrapbooking Summer School for Week Four's kit:

I can't wait to post my final page count on the 31st!! How are you doing with the challenge? If you got anything done (or even just collected the ideas for later) you did better than if you hadn't followed along at all, right? Here's wishing you many happy scrapping hours in the very near future.
