Inspiration, Scrap The Girls

“Fabulous” for Scrap the Girls April 2018

Hi Creative Friends!

April is here and I’m here to share the latest challenge for Scrap the Girls and I love love love it!  This month challenge is another mood board, featuring my fav combo, mint and pink, with a pop of red!

For my take, I drew inspiration from the bottom right-hand image, starting with fabulous as my title and how could I go past a mint and pink colour scheme.  AND here is my take…  (**Side note, the pop of pink on the edge does go all the way around the page, it just doesn’t look like it in the shot below)

The design for the page began with the large number 40 I have cut out on my Silhouette.  I have backed it with some paper scraps in the pink and mint colour tones and then hand stitched around the edges.  I will never get sick of hand stitching on my pages, it adds such a wonderful finishing touch and a lovely handmade element.

 

Next came the large word “fabulous” which I have also cut on my Silhouette, this time in a bright shade of pink!  I love the brightness it adds to my page.  I knew this would be my title and run across the bottom of my page.  These two elements are both quite large, so once I had a plan for their positions the rest of the page fell into place.

I decided on one main cluster for my page which would go above my title and below my photos.  It’s essentially a centred design, but off centre 🙂  If that makes sense!  I’ve also mounted my photos with the same bright pink cardstock as the title which brings the page together.

Then it was time to add in the little elements that finish off a page.  For these, I’ve gone with Gold, mainly because I had a few gold elements in my stash I wanted to use up (such as the cute little “best ever” chipboard piece and the bow paper clip) but also because I am a huge fan of Pink and Gold and in fact, my party (the one in the pictures) was a pink and gold theme!

I just love how all the little pieces work together to make up this page, combined with the super large number 40, I’m so happy with how it turned out!
