Hello! Today I have a stashbusting scrapbook page to share!
I always pick my best-looking photos for design team assignments … but I have a LOT of memories that keep getting ignored, simply because the photos I have of them are less than stellar. Time to give those photos some love, regardless of how “pretty” they are.
The starting point for this page was actually a color scheme. I was looking through an interior design magazine online and came across this stark white room with pops of teal and orange and a dark gray couch. It was stunning! I pulled out those colors along with green and gold and got to work creating the following layout.
Confession: I’m not very skilled at coming up with clever titles … or should I say, I’m lazy about coming up with clever titles. Haha! I was just going to call this one “Sunday BBQ” … but then thought to myself … I have so many word embellishments in my stash … I should browse and find one that will work for this page.
So, I pulled out this gray-stained wood word that says, “adore.” I found this at Michael’s a couple years ago in the dollar section. It was actually sold as a magnet, but the crafter in me saw “page embellishment!”
I added a bit of orange grid paper behind the letter “o” and then added a yellow, chipboard arrow (Studio Calico) in the center to point towards my husband.
I have my embellishments stored by color families. As I was browsing through my “Primary” bin, I came across this leftover chipboard city scene from the Shimelle Go Now Go collection. It looks so cute sitting on top of my title! The kite, stars, and clouds above the buildings are vellum stickers from an older Freckled Fawn Oh Deer Me Monthly Kit.
I wrote my journaling on a Dear Lizzy tag from my stash and then added more chipboard pieces to the left side. The car is from the same Shimelle Go Now Go chipboard embellishment pack and the arrows are by Studio Calico.
The phrase stickers to the left of the car (across the bottom of the photo) are from the Echo Park Paper Note to Self collection (oldie but goodie!).
