A Whole Latte Love

Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd's Jumpstart Your Creativity on-line crop                                     - A Whole Latte Love -

Hello there,

Over the weekend, Scrapbook Nerd will be hosting the first on-line crop of the year, "Jumpstart Your Creativity".  As part of their design team, i have created a pair of layouts to challenge all  to put your thinking caps on, and reignite your crafty skills.

This first challenge is called:  " Be Creative with no Patterned Paper", and it is all about creating a project without the use of patterned paper (a scrapbooker most beloved item).    For this I used the Cut Shoppe's Welcome to Fall cut file to create a title for the page.  Once that was ready, i used the same shades of watercolor to add a strip of watercolor splashes to the layout.

I was true to the challenge, and chose to use ink, card stock, wood veneers, die cuts, chipboard stickers, labels, paper clips and vellum to layer and create clusters around the picture of my favorite Holiday drink,  " Peppermint Mocha, no whip, extra curls from Starbucks".   The picture was then placed next to the title, along the strip of watercolor splashes.

To balance the page, I created a series of banners along the top of the page, using die cuts, vellum, wood veneers, and  the left over red cups from this year's Starbucks holiday campaign.  I simply ask the baristas (they know me by my first name at the local shop -i am there quite often), for a few extra cups, tore them apart, and used a circle cutter to get different size circles i stitched together with some die cut pieces.   Here is what the completed layout looks like:

As you can see, I did not use any patterned paper in the layout, instead, i was inventive with the little red cups and a lot of items from my stash.

You are all welcomed to join us for some fun at the Scrapbook Nerd Friends and Family Faceboook page, or the forum.   There are some prizes to be won!

As always let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for visiting!
