3-To-Inspire with Marsha
Hey friends! Marsha here today with this week's 3-to-Inspire challenge. This is one of my favorite challenges, because it's such a great way to get your creativity flowing by focusing on three key elements.
Here are the prompts:
1. Play with hexagons
2. Use a cut file
3. Add PURPLE
Here is my take on the challenge:
For my project, I used the October Scrapbooking Add-on Kit, the Life Crafted "At My Table" Kit, and a subscriber exclusive cut file- Screen 4. I love the bright colors in the kits this month, especially the gorgeous purple! In my opinion, it's not used nearly enough in scrapbooking products!
I decided to create a layout in my Life Crafted album documenting a fun photo taken at my grandmother's 90th birthday party earlier this year. I began by cutting out the cut file using white cardstock. I layered it over a piece of grid patterned paper from the Add-on kit, trimmed to 5"x8.25" (to fit in the LC album). Next, I backed several of the hexagons with patterned papers from the Life Crafted kit, also adding foam behind one of the hexagons for added interest. For the title, I used some puffy phrase stickers from the Pink Paislee Truly Grateful collection, found in the Add-on kit. To embellish the page, I added some ephemera pieces, a butterfly, and a puffy heart sticker, all from the kits.
For the other page, I added a piece of purple patterned paper behind my photo. I trimmed out a couple more hexagon shapes and added them around the page. This made the spread more cohesive by using this shape on both sides of the layout. Next, I used some puffy stickers and ephemera pieces to embellish. Using the Life Crafted Stamp, I added some stamping to some of the clusters. I also added some hand-written journaling to each side of my photo. I prefer the look of typewriter or computer printed journaling, but it's nice sometimes to use my own handwriting, even if it is imperfect.
I love how this layout came together using these amazing kits!
Here's one final look at the spread:
