Hi Creative Friends,
Woah, November, really? Yep, November is here and I’m here to share the latest challenge for Scrap the Girls. This month we have another stunning mood board to be inspired by. I thought I’d draw inspiration for this month mainly from the colours. The images themselves didn’t lead me to any specific ideas except that I felt like scrapping a pick of my little Miss Princess when she was smaller, and from there I thought I’d just focus on the colours, especially the pink and purple of the Rapunzel image.
and here is my take! As you can see, just the pink/purple tones used but I did include two of my cut files from CUT to YOU which is our Wedding Bouquet custom cut file. I choose this one with its large rose design which picks up the red rose in the mood board.
I started by backing the cut files with a selection of papers from Cocoa Vanilla ‘Bohemian Dream’ collection and then position on the background paper. Purple is not a very common colour in Scrapbooking but I did find this beautiful soft purple background paper from Mintay in their ‘Lovely Day’ collection. With such a big part of the design now locked it, I added my photos, I have also mount them with the Bohemian Dream collection which helps them pop off the cut file in the background.
Next, it was time to work on my title. I found the word ‘dream’ on the chipboard sticker sheet of the Cocoa Vanilla ‘Bohemian Dream’ collection and it was the perfect colour to match the mood board and my page. I then dug through my Thickers stash and found the letters for ‘BIG’. I have only a few letters of this font left so I was very happy to be able to get another word out of that pack. I think I’m totally out of vowels now!
While I was stash diving, I also found the paint chip tab that says ‘remember’ and pulled some stickers from the Bohemian Dream Accessory Sticker sheet. I also found the fussy cut butterflies, also Cocoa Vanilla and positioned on my page.
Lastly, I added some enamel hearts and some more Cocoa Vanilla goodies, they were the perfect pink/purple touch to finish off the page.
I’ll leave you with one more close up of that CUT to YOU cut file, this would have to be one of my most favourite designs as it is so delicate and detailed. Doesn’t it look fab and fresh in white! This one is available in limited stock on the website; if you are after the digital version please visit the ETSY store.
