4:00 PM – iNSD inspiration with Cathy Zielske!

4:00 PM – iNSD inspiration with Cathy Zielske!

Happy International Scrapbook Day everyone! Ahhh… nothing like a day set aside just to celebrate this amazing hobby of ours, right?  

Today, I’m feeling the inspiration and nowhere do I find more amazing pages than in our magazine’s Inspiration Gallery. As the art director, I get to layout all the images you see on the pages and can you imagine how fun it is as a scrapbooker to do this as part of my job? Believe me. It’s SUPER fun!

So the page that inspired my page today is Carpe Diem by Enza Gudor on page 69 of our new spring issue


I was instantly in love with Enza’s background cut file and new I could make something like that on my own using my Adobe Illustrator software combined with my Silhouette Cameo. Here is my page:


I love the texture of doing a white cut file on a white background. It’s subtle but it adds a level of depth to the design that is just so cool. 


I also decided to use one sheet from the Doodlebug Dragon Tails Petite Print patterned paper pack to take the negative parts of the cut file to fill in some of the spaces. I just thought it would be a fun look and a way to add some pops of colour to my layout while still keeping it relatively simple.


I also added some black hearts and little Doodlebug Sprinkles to the center of each one, and then adhered those to the hearts from the cut file.

For my photo mat, I used the 4.25 x 3.5 stitched die cut rectangle from Lawn Fawn and then also used the smallest frame in that set to cut out my journal block.

TIP: For my title, I used the Cole Alphabet from Lawn Fawn and some heavy black Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock. I cut out 6 of each letter, and just glued them on top of each other for some nice dimension. I used the circles of the cut file to help space out the title evenly.

If you like the design of this page, it is available as a digital template from my online shop. In fact, to see how I created another hybrid layout using the digital template via a video tutorial, visit my blog today!

Enjoy the rest of your creative day!

    I love how your circle background die-cut is very subtle by mostly blending in but has dimension with the play of light on it Cathy, whereas your inspiration piece by Enza is very bold where the circles just pop off the page because of the dark background! These layouts really make me think about how I want my elements to pop or not pop on my layouts! Thanks for the inspiration! Would love, love to win the Carta Bella collection! That is so, so fun!
