I scrapped these photos not only to match the beach theme, but with the inspiration of the ScrapStuffz “Inspired by” post. I also completed the page using some matching ribbon for the 3 Girl Jam Challenge: Anything Goes with Ribbon. Ribbon is one of the products I’ve been challenging myself to use more often. I’m having “trouble” using it in a way other then straight, but you have to start somewhere right!?
The ribbons are much more turquoise in real life, and match the page colors perfectly. The little fish also match the sharks in M’s rash guard and remind me of his 2nd favorite movie of the moment…Finding Nemo.
Please stop on by both challenge blogs and take a look at what they have to offer! I’d also love to hear what products you have been challenging yourself to use more often.
I had never used washi tape before, and recently purchased some to try. A friend then started a new challenge blog, and it paired perfectly with the new roll so I had an excuse to play with my new goodie. Like we ever need an excuse though!
Stacia’s ScrapStuffz “Inspired By” Challenges blog had three images to use for inspiration.
1. The first image had circles. This inspired me to add circle buttons as the center of my star stickers. I like the depth it added to my page. The buttons are hard to see in the photos.
2. The second image was stars…hence the star stickers and the stars in the baby title.
3. The third image had diagonal stripes, and that’s where my new washi tape came in. I mounted it on white paper in the first picture to make it really pop and left it opaque in the second. I liked using the two applications so that they matched, but weren’t identical.
I don’t know what happened, but my phone photos have been really crappy lately. I didn’t have this problem before…maybe it’s time for an upgrade! If I can get better pictures I’ll update the blog as these turned out really cute in person.
What new goodies or blogs have you been lovely lately?
I have to say I’ve had a pretty good scrappy week. First I won a Liebster Award and then I find out I won one of the prizes on the Kiwi Lane Designs blog hop. I had always wanted to try these, but was intimidated since I’m not always the greatest with multiple colors and patterns. Winning a set obviously gives me the perfect way to try them!
I received my first cosmetics subscription box. Have you ever done something like this (wish they did this for scrapbook projects at a reasonable cost) and what were you’re thoughts?
