Inspiration in Action? Scraplifting Yourself and More? What Inspired Me? Rosy here and I can’t decide what this post’s title should be?!…but hopefully you’ll find something to spark your creativity nonetheless!
There are so many ways to go about designing a scrapbook layout. Today I’m going to share two of my layouts and how I was inspired in designing them.
The first one uses a method I call “scraplifting yourself”. I’ve done this numerous times and it’s a great page starter! I browse through my folder of digital scrapbook layouts and pick one that I like.
This time it was “you are loved”.
I love doing this because it gives me a little head start on the page, yet keeps my own personal style and I’m pretty sure to end up with something that I love.
Sometimes I’m inspired by a simple embellishing idea. For my summery layout (one of my last 2011 pages to scrap!) I knew that I wanted to keep the photo large so as not to lose the lazy summer day feel, but I wasn’t sure where to go from there. I remembered some e-mail ads I’d received and stuck in an inspiration folder (yes, I subscribe to junk mail because they’re pretty, lol!).
Here’s what I noticed and liked about these ads.
ads are all from here
Using these little bits of inspiration, I came up with this layout.
I know many of us are going through winter right now, but this one is for you on the other side of the world!
I did (again) turn a stripe into a plaid on this last layout. I’ll be back tomorrow to show you how I did it! Thanks for stopping by!
