Hello everyone! Welcome back to 31 Pages in 31 Days, my annual scrapbooking immersion blog series! Every day in August 2022 I'm posting an inspiration layout for you to see the possibilities for using your Stampin' Up supplies to make fun pages for your family photos.
Today's inspiration layout is another fun non-traditional Christmas spread, this one in a combo of black and white with Shaded Spruce, Flirty Flamingo and Coastal Cabana.
The background papers (from Celebrate Everything by Stampin' Up) are hand colored by yours truly! They started off black and white, and the cute scribbly style of artwork made me want to color in the trees. So I spent a very satisfying 10 minutes adding my chosen colors in with Stampin' Blends markers in these colors.
It was fun to just play up the whimsical feel with some scraps of glitter paper and punches and keep a casual layout for this one. I used the new Halloween washi tape set in glitter black for one of the fastest and easiest photo frames ever!
I am getting so much more good out of the In Color 6×6 Ombre Glimmer Paper stack than I ever dreamed! It's just the right size to cut out headlines, and I can get totally different looks if I use only the darker or lighter ends of each pieces. Below, the word "merry" is cut from red Sweet Sorbet glimmer paper, but the light end, so it matches my Flirty Flamingo pink perfectly. Fun!
I promise I know how to make traditional red and green Christmas pages : ) I just really haven't dug in to Christmas papers yet this year. Plus I have a ton of scraps from Scrapbooking Summer School packet prep to use up and they're all laying out where I can see them and get inspired. So you get what you get!
See you tomorrow for Day 29 of 31 Pages in 31 Days! Can't wait for that final page count.
