It’s been a fun-filled day celebrating our love of papercrafting! Whether you’re a scrapbooker, card maker, do pocket pages, minis, decor pieces or more, we are great community brought together by our love of creating things that will be loved for a long time to come. Give yourself a little credit and a pat on the back for that! As we connect with readers around the world through our magazine, our Crop & Create events, online classes, SCT Delivered kits or SCT Sampler we are grateful to be in your company! Let’s wrap up this day with more inspiration from design team member Meghann Andrew and our Art Director Cathy Zielske is also popping in with a little something too. To end this day with a big finish we have a $100 prize package from our friends at American Crafts!
Hello there! It’s Meghann Andrew, and I am so excited to be here with you for interNational Scrapbook Day! The SCT spring issue is packed with tons of inspirational projects, and when I find only a limited amount of time to create, getting inspiration from inside its pages is SO helpful! I was especially inspired by Tammy Ziolkowski’s “Amazing” layout on page 71 in the Inspiration Gallery.
I loved the idea of having multiple photos on a diagonal line with a BIG title! I pulled together a series of similar photos of my daughter to create this page:
Supplies: Patterned paper, stickers, chipboard, stamp, die-cut: American Crafts; Enamel dots: Pinkfresh Studio
As you can see, our pages are very different. I chose a saturated and vibrant color scheme by using the colorful Box of Crayons collection from Shimelle and American Crafts. I also printed my photos larger than Tammy at 2″ x 3″ and created a shelf for my title with contrasting patterned paper.
However different, the design of my page was totally inspired by Tammy’s beautiful layout, and I absolutely love the result! Don’t forget to turn to your latest issue of SCT magazine for creative inspiration when you are short on time. Happy interNational Scrapbook Day, and happy creating!” ~ Meghann Andrew
