I'd like to wish you all a Happy Memorial Day tomorrow! While you're enjoying the extra day off, don't forget to thank a veteran or active serviceman/woman for their service to our country.
It’s time to share my latest Scraptastic Club layout and I'm going to mix things up today. I decided to use my Weathered Spring kit to scrap a snowy Winter photo. I wanted to inspire everyone to think outside of the box with their themed kits. Just because a kit includes Spring colors or embellishments, doesn't mean it won't work for something else.
My design on this page was inspired by Vivian Masket's layout in the June 2012 issue of Scrapbooks Etc! magazine. Her layout was Spring themed and that was the direction I originally planned to go with my lift. That was until I found this photo and thought, "Hey... What if I make a Winter page with the Spring kit?" The only thing I added to the kit was a few rub on snowflakes. The snowflakes helped the Weathered Spring kit work perfectly for my snowy photo.
This is a closer look at the title work. The entire design on this page is clean and simple. I love the tiny little polka dot pattern on the letters. It adds and unexpected bit of interest to an otherwise simple design.
My favorite aspect of this page is the way I was able to lift the banner that Vivian used. The Lily Bee banner stickers worked really well to form this colorful, fun page element. To finish the layout, I made sure that I used yellow gems in the center of all of the snowflakes to unify them on my page.
We’ve been crazy busy this weekend. I’ve been working on MORE projects with the June Scraptastic Club kit. I am glad I get another day off with Ronnie tomorrow. We’re gearing up for Alexis to start Summer school in a few days. I’m going to have to drive her to and from school every single day for a month. There will be no sleeping in for us! All because she failed the 4th grade LEAP test by three measly points. She was so disappointed. I’m really hoping that the LEAP remediation and the IEP accommodations that were put in place help her pass. If not, she’ll have to repeat 4th grade. We’re all trying very hard not to freak out at that prospect.
