3-to-Inspire with Shannon


Hello, crafty friends! Shannon here with a 3-to-Inspire post to get your ideas flowing this weekend. I had a ton of fun pulling together this Life Crafted spread. Coming up with 3 product/idea/technique prompts to share with you always leaves me feeling inspired! Here are my prompts for you this week:

1. Mix and match your title

2. Use a digital file

3. Journal in a timeline

1. Mix and match your title: The script "life" in the Summertime Florals Ephemera pack is perfect for a title! I used some older Citrus Twist alpha stickers for add the word "work" before it. A sans serif font (one without anything "hanging off" the ends of letters) is a perfect match for a script font. I also enjoy how it looks to mix a smaller font with a larger font. You could mix different alpha stickers, die cut words, or word/phase stickers or ephemera.

2. Use a digital file: When I saw this paper with the assortment of notecards on it in the May 2021 Digital TN Basics & Patterns I knew it needed to be in my album. It reminded me of office supplies, which are one of my favorite things (right after scrapbooking supplies, of course). Plus, the colors are fantastic. If you didn't know, Citrus Twist has a huge variety of digital supplies to choose from with new releases each month!

3. Journal in a timeline: You could take this very literally and make a timeline on your page. Or you could do what I did and add the journaling all over your page with years as headings to show the passage of time. Your timeline could cover years or it could cover days. It could track milestones or vacation activities or progress toward a goal. The possibilities are endless! I chose to journal about all the jobs I've had since my very first jobs as a babysitter. It was so fun to take a walk through memory lane! 

Even though my journaling is a walk through the past, I chose to use a photo from today. This is a picture of me working in my home office so it still fits the theme of the page. I used a whole bunch of ephemera from the Florals, Hearts, and Tags ephemera pack and the One of a Kind Cardstock Tiny Words stickers to layer behind the photo.

I hope that I've inspired you to try something different on your next page! I can't wait to see what you create!
