It’s been a while since I created anything in my scrapbook, so this weekend, whilst Shaun was watching the football, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to grab my scissors and start cutting. In February, I shared with you Create Your Own Inspirational Scrapbook and all the bits and pieces I used. It’s cool to see the difference between the two posts and which colours I am loving and what inspires me at the moment.
My cuttings are from In The Moment magazine and Project Calm. My two favourite magazines, they all full of positivity, creativity, inspiration and calm. I was feeling inspired by plants, tea, travel, yoga, art and food which is a pretty accurate summary of my life.
There are no rules to scrapbooking. Just cut and stick in whatever you are drawn to. I start with patterns and colours and layer things on top. It’s awesome to see the pages take shape and if you don’t like the look of something, simply find something to stick over it.
I have a box of random stickers which came in very handy for my afternoon of scrapbooking. Anything works when it comes to scrapbooking, I have used travel, quotes, tea and food stickers.
I had some spare Polaroid photos from my Greece Travel Scrapbook and the Santorini pic was perfect for the summer theme I had going on. I found a sticker to layer on top and ta-da!
You can have a theme or keep things completely random. Or just see what happens as you go along.
Doing something creative? Washi tape is never far away. A couple of strips of different washi tapes here and there add in that extra splash of colour.
Here is my finished scrapbook page! The fun thing about scrapbooking is that you can let your creative side run wild. There are no mistakes in scrapbooking. It’s an enjoyable and relaxing way to spend a few hours on a lazy Saturday. Do you like scrapbooking? What are your favourite magazines? I’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions!
