Layout: Create Your Own Dream

Urban Scrapbook September 2018 Design Team

I was thrilled and honoured when Nicole from the Urban Scrapbook asked me to join her design team. I’ve loved shopping at her store in Edmonton, AB, Canada for YEARS!!!

I told her that I’d never met a scrapbooking supply that I can’t appreciate, although there are a few things that aren’t really my style. I don’t buy a lot of Graphic 45, distressed papers, or paper with cream instead of white.

Nicole started laughing and told me that this month kit had Graphic 45 paper! 😉

This kit was basically full of things I normally wouldn’t purchase to scrap with.

Challenge accepted!

Here’s the kit:

  • 5 sheets of Graphic 45 Imagine collection papers
  • 1 sheet of black cardstock
  • 1 sheet of cream cardstock
  • 5 chipboard gears
  • some brown ribbon
  • some blue fibre

The rules of the game:

  1. Use some of everything in the kit.
  2. No adding extras except for mixed media supplies.
  3. Have fun!

It turns out that being restricted to using only the supplies in the kit was a lot of fun. It challenged me to get creative.

I really wanted this layout to be in my style, even if the products going into it were not. I was able to pull it off and create a page that I truly love to tell a story about the dream home we built.

You can pick up a kit from the Urban Scrapbook in Edmonton or give them a call and they’ll mail it!

Have you ever used supplies that you didn’t consider your style and have a great result? Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear about it!

 

I challenge you to try using a supply you normally wouldn’t and see if you can still create something in your own style.

Happy scrapping!

Alice.
