Hello SCT friends, Virginia here on the blog today to share with you a scrapbook page I created without using any pattern paper.

I was at a crop and one of the challenges was to create a page without using pattern paper, hmm…hard to resist pattern paper but I was up to doing this! I do think that some photos are better suited to a solid backdrop and so taking hints from the colours in my photos I created a cardstock only foundation.


To dress up the page I dipped into my stash of ephemera and alphabet fonts.  I didn’t worry about using the embellishments from the same company as the colours (not patterns or theme) worked together.


Tip: The subtitle at the bottom of the page is a mix of alphabets so I created a pink banner as an underline to pull it together.


Why not challenge yourself to create a no patterned paper layout! Give it a try!
