Hello my crafty friends! Thanks for joining me for Day Fifteen of 31 Pages in 31 Days, my annual scrapbooking blog series. If you are a scrapper, be sure to check out the blog categories and resources available in the sidebar for tons more inspiration including all the pages from the past several years of 31 Pages in 31 Days.
Today's inspiration page is a single layout celebrating sisters! Of course you can make it about anything, using the cute new Family Party stamp set--cousins, mom, aunties, daughters, mom in law--you name it. I don't have any sisters myself, but am blessed to know some amazing women I count as one!
Terracotta Tile can be a pretty intense color, so I love it paired with Seaside Spray's grey-blue and some nice crisp Whisper White. Aren't the dandelions just perfect? They're STILL from those laser-cut lace sheets I've been using all month! Those really are amazing for scrappers and cardmakers alike. And SO nice when I am just too lazy to do any actual die-cutting.
PRO TIP: the In Colors scalloped linen trim is only colored on one side--so you can flip it over and have plain linen scallops on the back for a more versatile use! So nice when you aren't sure you'll need an entire spool of just one color. You can also carefully slice the ribbon in half down the middle and get twice the use for the same number of inches, like I did to edge my headline strip. Love discovering a little bargain like that!

Congratulations to the winner of the Stampin' Up tool case, Darlene Reed! Thanks to everyone who left a comment wandering down memory lane with us. It was fun to read about the very first pages you made!
My first page was black and white pictures of my dad as a little kid, as I had just inherited a shoebox of unmarked family photos. It was soooo bad! LOL!!! I used those fancy scissors on every photo, cropped everything to within an inch of its life, hand-wrote the headline, and doodled flourishes on with a gold pen. it makes me die laughing now. But I was so proud of that page! And I was HOOKED!
