“Summer Happy” for Scrap the Girls January 2020

Hey Creatives!

I’m back on the blog today with my very last share as part of the Scrap the Girls Design Team. This month we are using another fabulous mood board, this time with a Bohemian theme. I am crushing on the colours in this one that’s for sure! Here is my page:

and here is the mood board:

So much to love about this one! I was especially inspired by the bottom right image with the stitched circles in it and used that as inspiration to create a cut file! See, that’s the beauty of having your own Cut File store lol… if you want a design, you can just make it.

I’ve actually dug deep into my stash for this one pulling out a bunch of scrap papers and mixed and matched them to fit the colours in the mood board. Some of these are Maggie Holmes, some are Paige Evans from her first collection and there is a couple I’m not even sure where they are from! This is another reason why I do love these challenges, they really do allow you to use up your stash 🙂 Got to love that!

I just mixed and matched the pattern papers to back my cut file to create that ‘Boho’ feel from the mood board. I’ve then positioned on my page as the base of the layout, raised with 3D foam. Next, I stitched my photos and matted onto some more soft peach pattern paper and set about the layout design. Locking in the photo placement and the large title element first.

Next, more stash diving, I found these sweet layered butterflies that fit with the colours perfectly from the Notes & Things collection from 2014! They sure did feel good to get onto my page. There are also some stickers from Crate Paper ‘Pool Side’ so lots of mixing and matching of collections on this layout. I’ve also used some super fun epoxy fairs from ‘Scrappin Happy Studio‘, an ETSY store I love. They work especially well on this page with their circle shapes, a perfect match to the theme of the cut file.

So, I kept adding bits and pieces to the page until I was happy, with all the elements and I do love how this one turned out. Be sure to upload to the Facebook group by the end of the month for your chance to win a prize pack from this months sponsor.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Krisy for having me these past 2 years, it has been so fun.

Until next time,
