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.
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:
