January 2017-Pinspire Me

Thursday, January 5, 2017

Hello there! Yes! I'm back again! 4 days in a row sharing yet another new page!  Today the new  Pinspire Me challenge is up at Paper Issues. Isn't it beautiful?

This board spoke to me in so many ways. I had several ideas, and at the very last minute the "page 1 of 365" inspired the story of my page. The gold and black inspired the colors and products.  I grabbed some black and white prints from my Bella Blvd Stash to create the background and all the layers. I wanted a little bit of color, so I dug into the embellishments from the Oh My Stars collection choosing the turquoise pieces. I found some gold frames so I tucked those in there to for good measure. From there I just added some enamel and epoxy stars, a few brads and called it a day. I love the pop of color, but mostly I love the black and white. It's clean and fresh. 

My scrap space became the holiday dumping space during the month of Dec. I couldn't take it anymore. I snuck away to tidy it up. One of the items in the dump was my new WRMK silver album I chose for this years pages of memories. After I cleared out the boxes, picked up the stuff off the floor and cleaned off my desk, I set up the album and laid it on my nice clean desk. There. Now I am ready to start 2017. 

Thanks for joining me  and my creative view again today. Did I give you any ideas? Need some other inspiration? Head to the Paper Issues shop to pick up some new things for yourself and use my coupon code DEVRA for 20% off your order.

  1. I love your layout but I really love your story and how you chose to take an image of your space to make a layout about.
