Scrapbook Challenge

Life Is An Adventure

Plaid And Flags

Do you ever find yourself using a certain element in your layouts over and over because you just love how they look? For me it's strings of pennant flags. I love how they look and there's something meditative in measuring, cutting and arranging lots of little triangles. Plus, it's a great way to using up little paper scraps! This is the first time I have used them in a circle though! Tip: put down a bowl or a plate and arrange your circular elements around it for a perfect circle!


I started with basic white card stock and and since the challenge called for paid, I raided my entire collect looking for anything plaid. It just so happened that both plaid papers were from Recollections Regent Street paper pad and bother patterns matched the color palette for the challenge.


I embellished with some matching scraps from my paper stash, some wooden buttons by Prima Marketing, chipboard cutouts from Cottage Farms' Pink Paislee collecton, and some MAMBI puffy stickers. I used a hashtag sticker by Little B for the appropriate "selfie" subtitle.

I used Stuck?! Sketches March layout for this page. I knew I didn't want to cut paper circles to fulfill the challenge, because no matter how carefully I cut, my circles are never perfect. Instead I decided to combine an element from another challenge and framed the photo with a string of pennant flags.


This page was also done for Color, Story, Inspiration's 249th case file. Beside matching the color scheme, I used the following suggested elements:

  • Plaid
  • Banner
  • Arrows
  • Wood
  • Sign

I used Mini MAMBI Banners as a sign to journal in, and The Paper Studio's Inspirational Phrase stickers as the page title.

Thank you for dropping by my page! I'll see you all next time!
