HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE!!
Today, we are diving into the February kit, “So This Happened” with the Scrapbook Circle exclusive for this week’s spotlight. It is the 2 word script phrase “big day” in a black dimensional acrylic. These acrylic embellishments are perfect for not only a page Title, but as a jump start for journaling or page theme!
Rebecca shared her use of the Exclusive, but customizing them for her page; a contrast in color and black & white!
“I used an American Crafts Jane Davenport Paint Over Pen in white to add tiny dots to my acrylic words and and added a wood button over the ‘I”. Then I layered them over one of the 4×6 cards to create a space for the title.”
Next up is Neela, using the exclusive as another large title, but centered. She describes her creative thinking below.
“I love the acrylic words that we get with the scrapbook circle kits every month. They are the most perfect page starters as I usually use them as a title of the layout. I look at the word and then pick my photo. I had multiple themes that I was thinking of when I saw this word – birthdays, awards, the day the kids were born, the day we got married, the day we moved to our house and so on. Finally I settled on one of the recent birthday’s of my older son. It was a happy and sad day. I decided to document that in my journaling. I love how these words evoke stories for the layouts. The rest of the layout is pretty simple. I love the soft colors and the blacks included in our kits this month. I decided to mix both types of patterned papers up. I then finished my layout with the Maggie Holmes word stickers and Hazelwood one canoe two thickers.”
I love the differences in the two layout, but I love the similarities, too. Both designers used black and white photos and obviously, the acrylic words, yet they are very different pages. This is one of the reasons I love this post assignment! Looking at how everyone approaches the same product diffferently shows the diversity in this hobby we all love so much!
Thanks for stopping by the Blog today! I hope this inspired you to get out some black & white pics and an inspiring title to document some memories!
