3 To Inspire with Emma

Hi friends!  I'm back again with another 3-To-Inspire challenge!  I think it's fair to say I'm addicted to these challenges; they are my favourite!

We offer this challenge every Saturday for those who are looking for a little extra push to get scrapbooking, to keep scrapbooking, or for those of you just looking for a challenge (and the chance to win a little something is an added bonus!).

I hope you'll join in with me this week using the following prompts:

1. Create your own hand-cut title
2. Use more than one photo
3. Use a punched shape

 And here's a look at the page I created:

My title was actually inspire by something I found on Pinterest.  Now I know that's a pin for 3D letters but when I first looked at it, I thought the letters were on "hinges" on the sides.  So I set about creating my own version.  I actually love that the inspiration piece for this page is something completely different - just shows that we can interpret what we see in such different ways :)

I picked a few favourite 6x6 papers from the Pocket Life kit and folded a small section on one side, then I just used a pair of scissors to cut the letters out free-hand.

I picked a few of the best photo's I managed at night.  I'm still trying to figure out how to get the best photo's using sparklers at night.  I had planned to put the photo's to B&W but with the softer tones in the papers I used they actually got a little lost.  So back to colour they went!

I used modelling paste to add some textured stars to my background, they're a little hard to see because I went with white on white.  Then I used my hand punch to cut a few tiny stars out of paper (I used the same ones I'd used for the letters) and scattered them around my page.  I literally stuck them down where they fell :)

Now it's your turn! Use the three prompts to create your own projects and share them with us here in the gallery and/or our Facebook Forum.  I really can't wait to see your pages!

Thanks, Em xo
