Scrapping after a long break

IMG_0715

After a few months of radio silence, I’ve finally dived back into my scrapbook supplies. I thought I would start with a challenge.

The page above is for Scrapbook Circle’s technique challenge┬ácalled “heart strings”. I was trying to think of some creative way to mix up string and heart shapes and come up with something special and complicated. Eventually I settled with something simple just to get my creative mojo back on track.

I mixed some stamping into the layout as well. I’ve been slowly amassing a collection of clear stamps and I really wanted to put them to good use so I promised myself to include at least 3 stamped elements onto each layout from now on.

Supplies: Patterned papers (October Afternoon, American Crafts, Stickers (October Afternoon, Bella Blvd), Alphabet stickers (Studio Calico), Clear Stamps (Studio Calico) and punces (Marvy Uchida).
