Design team Wednesday with Stacy Cohen!

Design team Wednesday with Stacy Cohen!

Well hello there everyone!  Stacy Cohen here.  Besides all of SCT’s fabulous resources, where else do you find inspiration to get your creative juices flowing? I sometimes find fresh inspiration from non-scrapbooking pins on Pinterest – food, home décor, etc.  Sometimes a simple arrangement of frames on a wall will give me an idea for laying out photos on a page.  Or sometimes a beautifully photographed cake will give me an idea for colors and embellishments.  While browsing through Pinterest the other day, I found this picture of a too-gorgeous-to-eat ombre cake.

I knew immediately that I wanted to create a scrapbook page based on the cascading ombre in this photo.  I first thought about mimicking the ruffles, but I decided to go with butterflies instead (I’m a little obsessed with clusters of butterlifies!).  Here is the resulting page.

Adore sized

I first used a variety of complimentary colors of distress inks on watercolor paper, then I proceeded to punch out a ton of butterflies.  It definitely took a long time to punch out all the butterflies and glue each one individually to the paper, but I was satisfied with the result in the end.

Take a look through Pinterest and see what non-crafty pins you might be able to translate into a scrapbook page! 

Before I go, I wanted to remind everyone that the fabulous new SCT Delivered Fall Kits are now available for preorder here.  I had an absolute ball working with the Sweater Weather layout kit.  It is chock full of so many wonderful goodies!  Here are a few sneaks of the layouts and card I created with this kit:
