Weekly Scrapbook Challenge – Society 52

I found a really fun challenge on Instagram called Society52 – They give a prompt Monday and add a fun twist on Thursday. This is my 2nd time to participate and I wanted to share here on my site.  On Monday we were challenged to use a monochromatic color scheme.  I chose lavender. I haven’t used it very much in my scrapping so I wanted to see what I’d do with this color. I started with the patterned paper. I found a great pack in my stash from Maple Brook Studios called Caesilia. (available at Designer Digitals) I started pushing blocks of patterned paper around and then I added my frame and photo. The fun part came next with the embellishing, layering, stitching, painting, etc.  I totally got lost in this page which is what I love to do. After all, college football just began and that is my favorite time to scrapbook!!!!  I love hearing the noise in the background, the cheers, and yes, even the rants and the kicking from my guys.  I just scrap away during these games, but I secretly LOVE that I live with a house full of football fans!

The twist was to add a die cut. That was easy for me. If you read my last post, you know I am totally crushing on these new cutting files. I’ve even purchased a die-cutting machine so that I can use them on paper pages that I plan to make soon. I added these die cut flowers to my page and I was done! I love the result and I am loving the other pages that have been posted for this challenge too. #society52  Check them out on Instagram!
