Countdown to National Scrapbooking Day!

To kick-off  National Scrapbooking Day this Saturday {May 4} the Dream Team, Contributing Writers, & Contributing Editors at CK will be dropping by the Creating Keepsakes blog all week to share some scrap-lifted inspiration. 
The May/June 2013 issue of Creating Keepsakes is full of great scrapbook pages!
 Everybody looked through the issue and designed a new layout using a technique or design principle based off one of the layouts that inspired us.
I was inspired by Hanna Long's "Love this Life" layout in the Simple Solutions for Fast Pages article on page 23.

{geez I hate how small 2-page layouts look on here! click to see if you can make it bigger!}
I love how much hand-written journaling she was able to get on her 2-page layout. 
I only wanted to make a 1-page layout, but I did want to dedicate a lot of the page to journaling too. 
I grabbed a sheet of lined patterned paper (from Glitz!) to use as the background of my page. 
It made for easy journaling! 
I added a little patterned paper, a few stickers, and some die cuts to the top half of the layout. 
Then I added the title and picture. 
The rest of the layout I saved for all my journaling. 

Patterned paper: Close to my Heart, Fancy Pants, Glitz
Stickers: Bella Blvd, Fancy Pants
Die Cuts: Elle's Studio
Chipboard: Echo Park
Pen: American Crafts
Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives (3L Adhesives)

Thanks, Hanna, for the inspiration!
Make sure to stop by the CK blog all week for all kinds of fun scraplifts and inspiration!
Have an awesome day!

I hope you have gotten your shoelace tying thing down to a science by now. Freaking hilarious that you think those aero helmets look ridiculous. You'll convert to them one of those days. Tri bikes are very nice, not that I have ever seen one with my own eyes, but I have a co-worker who started doing tri last year and won rookie of the year and got a prize bike that was $5K. nice eh? really awesome project!!
