So, today is Scraplift day! This day will include layouts and cards and basically anything that inspires me! I have many different pinterest boards for this, and boy, is my scrapbook one full!! Today, I was inspired by this layout. Seeings as I usually do 2 page layouts, I decided to create a second page to go with it. It ended up being an “inspired by” more than scraplifted, but I think it’s all good!
So, I started with Cricut Design Space, and created the following layout:
So, once I got this designed, I had to choose some photos. So, I went looking through my folders, and found some from my retreat in October, AND, it’s my friend Vickie’s birthday today, and had these GREAT photos of her and Jenn, and just KNEW that I had to use them!! (Sorry Mary, for you getting cut off in the photo! Definitely going to have to reprint them all so that everyone is on there, and they are better quality!)
I knew what paper I wanted to use too, because she just LOVES this paper! So, away I started cutting! Now, if you compare my hexagons to the design space file, you will see that a few are in different spots. As with any creative project, sometimes, things just have to change a little. (you’ll note that the banners didn’t end up on the layout either!)
Now, this paper pack (now retired) is a very summery paper pack, by design, especially with the complements. However, I just made it do what I wanted it to do!!
I created a little cluster with the stickers and vellum pieces, it’s so fun to put all the bits and pieces together! You can sorta see, in the photo above, the pink and yellow banner tails, those were long dove tailed on both ends banners (one pink and one yellow) . . . well, I wanted to make these little flags sticking out, so I cut it in half, and used them how *I* wanted to use them!
We did indeed have good times at the retreat! I am so glad to know all of the ladies that come to my crops, workshops, and retreats!
Thanks for stopping by to visit! I hope you are enjoying all of the artwork!! Now, remember, there are some January only things, you won’t want to miss out on them!
Thank you again for stopping by! I hope you have a great day! If you are in the local area, (or anywhere being hit by storms) stay home, stay safe, stay warm! Maybe do some crafting! I have a challenge up on my crop event, since it’s been cancelled, if you click that you are going, and post something that you craft on Saturday, I will have a fun little something for you! So, go and check it out!
