What’s the most important part of your scrapbook page? If we surveyed ten scrapbookers, everyone would likely have a different answer to that question. Me? I think it’s nice to change it up a little. On some layouts, it’s about an amazing photo. On others, it’s about the journaling of a story I can’t wait to tell (and never want to forget). And on others, it’s about the overall sentiment.
Take this page, for instance, created by Jaime Warren (click this link to see her fabulous blog!) and using the brand new Sunday Picnic Collection from Webster's Pages. First of all, isn’t it adorable?
Jaime’s layout made me smile the second I saw it, not just because of the fun, bright colors, but because of the whole idea behind it. “You Make Me Happy” pops right off the page…and what a great thing to tell your child, spouse or best friend.
So, here’s the challenge today…create a layout with a supersized title, one that jumps off the page. Allow yourself to forget the rules of what your focal point SHOULD be and have fun with it. After all, this is art…and that means you can make it whatever you want!
Here are some ideas to get you started:
• “I have a confession…” Create a layout about a funny guilty pleasure or something no one knows about you.
• “My purse tells a story…” Create a page about the contents of your purse. It’ll be like a peek into your brain—how fun is that?
• “Friends are Forever…” A layout showcasing your special friendships—or those of your kids—will become an instant classic.
Let your imagination run wild…what is it that you’re feeling right this second? Sit down and create a page about it, letting that sentiment be the star!
Thank you Courtney for a great challenge! The Sunday Picnic collection is so beautiful (and already shipping!), we just had to share more...
Courtney is back on Wednesday with a great project and you may just want to mark your calendars to be here on Friday ;)
Have a great day! Just a reminder that Crop & Create Moncton registration opens tonight at 7:00 pm. EST.
