The Naturally Gilded 12" x 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper looked really pretty in the online store and I thought I could use it for some neat scrapbook layouts. But when I first opened the pack to create a layout I was stumped! A great tip to remember when you're not sure what layout design to use, sign up to receive my free 3 Fun Scrapbook Sketches to use one of the sketches with inspiration to create your scrapbook layout or you can look back at previous layouts you've made for inspiration. I found a layout created in 2017 when Lemon Lime Twist was one of the In Colors. It was paired with Basic Black, Basic White and a dark green (I chose Shaded Spruce). I'll post the photo of the inspiration below.

Griffin's birthday is coming up really soon! He turns 11 on May 1 and he is the best dog ever! Since his birthday is the next one in the family it was the best opportunity to create a layout to not only be ready to print the photos and add them with some journaling but to use new products! The Bright & Beautiful 6" x 6" designer series paper has some fun designs and contains 10 of the 11 new core colours. The stripe band was created using two pieces of the designer series paper and the two smaller photo layers are from the same pack. The larger photo layer is Blueberry Bushel cardstock. This layout is one of my 3 Fun Scrapbook Sketches and you can receive them here:

With Easter fast approaching, make sure to create a few layouts ahead of time to make saving those memories easier! Then you know whether you need landscape or portrait photos to put onto your pages when you are snapping cute photos Easter weekend.

A scrapbook layout with 3 photo layers, the base is a star design with a strip of trees. A punched label with stamped trees and a title "stars" are stamped and added to the layout.

A few years ago we bought a fire pit for our backyard. A pretty round stone one with a wire dome. It's so fun to sit around the fire, put sticks in, poke the fire back up to flames and see how long some of the logs last. When I saw the pretty star design in the Enjoy the Journey designer series paper (DSP) I remembered sitting around the fire in September with my head titled back looking up at the stars! Starting with pretty DSP is an easy way to start creating your scrapbook layout. You can pull colours from the list on the pack and I've used the coordinating Greatest Journey stamp set to add accents to my layout.
