We're officially 2/3 of the way done with our annual blog series! 31 Pages in 31 Days is speeding by. Join me for the immersion scrapbooking challenge as we leave our stuff OUT and work on it without guilt in August! We'll pack it all away at the end and feel immense satisfaction at what we were able to accomplish.
Today is the 20th and here are the inspiration pages!
I totally adore fall, so this page makes me happy with the color combo of Cajun Craze, Cinnamon Cider, So Saffron and Crumb Cake with Early Espresso. The Beauty of the Earth papers with their watercolored seasonal themes had these gorgeous sheets for autumn, and made the color selection a breeze.
I stumbled upon a happy combination of the Stitched Leaves dies and the Playful Alphabet Dies and created these cool headline piece I really like. Wrapping it with hemp twine really helps it pop, too.
I still had the Bark embossing folder out on my desk from yesterday's page, so I cut some one-inch strips and made a really textural photo frame with it. I love the Brushed Metallic Dots for the "nails" in the corners!
Love all that beautiful interest added by the leaf groupings here and there. Such a great way to spread color across the two pages.
That's it from me! Today has been an exciting day... the lease was officially signed this afternoon, insurance kicked in today, and the keys will be handed over next week. Then we can start moving all the chairs, tables, shelves and other things I've been collecting out of my parents' garage.
Then the REAL work begins! Somehow I have to pack up my entire stamp room, which, small though it is, holds an enormous amount of stuff! Maybe I'll have to have a rummage sale in the new studio right away. I am bound to unearth all kinds of treasures as I empty all my closets and cupboards, for sure!
Gracious! Send help! Send chocolate! : )
