Welcome to my part of the Young Scrappers blog hop!
Young scrappers is a group on 2peas made up of scrappers anywhere from their teens to their thirties. Every month we have a new forum, where we talk about our lives, our pages and help each other out any way we can. It's definitely a fun place to be, and I've grown a lot with these ladies in the 6-ish months I've been there.
This month, to celebrate the leap-year, we decided to do a blog hop! My theme is "Pinterest Inspired" since Pinterest has definitely affected the way I scrapbook. We have some giveaways and fun challenges along the way so make sure you visit all the blogs and enter comments to win goodies or participate!My page was inspired by these three pictures from Pinterest. I wanted a page of what friendship means to myself and my two best friends in their own words and this layout with the three circle pictures was the perfect starting point. I also loved the colour scheme in the second picture with the cake decorations, and I thought it would be cool to incorporate the petal type design around each of the pictures. Continuing with the circle theme, I wanted the grey middle stripe to have an overlapping circle pattern like the third picture.
Here's my planning page. Whenever I scrap using inspiration pictures I like to have them ordered according to the individual page. That way I can focus on just the pictures that I want to use as inspiration rather than having too many irrelevant things to look at.
And here's the final product! As you can see, there were a couple minor changes to the sketch I made, but I stayed pretty true to my plan. I changed the title and the layout of it, and added in a couple of hand stitched hearts, but that's about it!
Products used (all from memory, I don't really keep very good track of what all the products I buy are called):
Teal paper: Poppy Seeds collection by K and Company
Orange paper: Don't remember, but it was a birthday/celebration pack
Lime and Peacock paper: DCWV stack (either brights or basics)
Grey circles paper: Made it myself using Photoshop :)
Thickers: American Crafts Lullaby in Teal
Scallop punch: Martha Stewart Double loops punch around the page
My post challenge is to see how you can use the overlapped circles inspiration. I want to see what you create, so please comment with a link to your creation! The deadline for all challenges and giveaways is Sunday at Midnight so get goin! :)
Your next stop is Monica!
