Chic and not to shabby!

As I discussed in my last post I tend to gravitate towards bright colored scrapbook papers. As I have tried to find my “signature” style I explored the vintage shabby chic look that is so popular among the “artsy and inky” scrapbook crowd.  The scrapbook paper lines that I find perfect for that shabby chic look is Graphic 45, Prima and Crate Paper.

These next two layouts are a drastic contrast to the two I shared in my last posts. They both take on a more vintage look and utilize fibers to build more texture.

First up- A layout using the Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk collection.

Second up- A layout using a Die Cuts wth A View Mariposa paper stack.

Thanks for stopping by. More to Come. Celia.


Papers so bright gotta wear shades!

While the distressed vintage look is very popular in scrapbook papers these days, I tend to gravitate towards those bright happy paper collections. In my earlier scrapbooking attempts way back in 2009 (hah!), I hoarded American Crafts paper collections: Teen, Metropolitan and Craft Fair.  These next two layouts showcase these wonderful American Crafts paper and one of my favorite subjects- friends! So put on those Raybans because its about to get real bright.

Both layouts have an excessive use of bright colors. As my style has evolved, I still love bright scrapbook paper collections but utilize more eye resting room. Hope you enjoyed this blast from the past.

Thank you for stopping by. More to come. Celia.
