3-To-Inspire with Emma

Hi CTK friends!  It's Emma on the blog today to share this weekend's 3-To-Inspire challenge!   We love to share this challenge every Saturday for those of you that are looking for a little extra push to get scrapbooking, to keep scrapbooking, or those just looking for a challenge (and the chance to win a little goodie  is a fun  little bonus!).

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

1. Give yourself a "colour challenge" - focus on using a colour you normally wouldn't on your project.
2. Use a cut file (this could be one of the awesome free cut files from our store).
3. Include more than one photo.

And here is the page I came up with!

For my colour challenge I focused on using purple!  I actually love purple as a colour but I really struggle using it on my layouts  Just seems so..odd haha.  The June Main kit has quite a few  pops of purple in it, so it was a great opportunity to challenge myself!

For my layout I teamed one of the papers from the Main (Noteworthy No.2 by Elle's Studio) and the Heart Doodle cut file (designed by our amazing DT member, Nathalie!).  I cheated a little for my multiple photo's by creating a collage on my phone and then just printing that :)

I used the white cardstock as my background but after laying it all together (before I stick everything down) I realised it was a bit too "plain" so I added one of the pattern papers (Noteworthy No.4 by Elle's Studio) on top but trimmed it slightly shorter so the white cardstock became my border around it.

I had to add a bit of machine stitching on my page so I grabbed my purple cotton and added  a few zig-zags at the top and bottom.

Once that was done it was just a matter of getting all the other purple pieces included in the Main kit and popping them around the page.  As I was putting all the purple on the page I thought it really needed some contrast - hence the pops on green on the page! I think they pair up nicely :)

Those expoxy stickers from Elle's Studio are gorgeous, loved using them on this page! 

Between you and I, I'm still not in love with using purple on my layouts but I do have to confess I think this one is kinda cute!  Do you struggle with using a particular colour on your projects?  Please tell me I'm not alone! ;)

Now it's your turn! Use the three prompts to create your own project/s and share them with us on our Facebook Forum.  I can't wait to see your take on this one!

Take care, Em xo
