The other day I shared a little box. While the concept of the box is great- the colour combinations weren’t working for me at all. I was determined however, to make use the of Beyond the Garden Designer series paper. It is designed to work with the really lovely “Fabulous Floret Stamp set” but as I don’t have that stamp set I was feeling a little stumped. Yes- we all have those creative blocks sometimes.
The paper looked appealing enough in the catalogue for me to purchase so I knew I could make it work….and make it work I did. What I did was take something that wasn’t working for me in the beginning (the paper) and teamed it up with a few things I LOVE. I love love LOVE the colours Blushing Bride (lovely musk pink) and Rose Red (A deep warm pink) These aren’t the colours indicated as a match for the patterned paper in the mini catalogue but I could see hints of these colours in elements on some of the sheets of paper. I also LOVE the stamps sets called “Creative Elements” and “My Friend”. So I combined the patterned paper with some favourite stamp sets and got this…… In the end I was really happy with how it turned out. What do you think?
My next problem was that I couldn’t decide whether to put the sentiment in centre, towards the top OR towards the bottom….so I tested them all out!
Do you have a preference? I asked my husband what he liked best and he politely responded by saying “You can do whatever you want!” Well Yes of course I can- I already knew that!
So…I haven’t shared a scrapbook page in a while. Do you want to see one of those? Stay tuned- I might just have one to share.
