Welcome to Day 1 of our week long National Scrapbook Day Celebration here on the 3 Birds Studio Blog! Each day this week, one of our design team members will be sharing a scrapbook page focusing on ways to scrapbook different kinds of photos and memories.
To celebrate this week, we will be having a giveaway on National Scrapbook Day Saturday, May 3. You will have the chance to enter to win one of our new products BEFORE you can buy it! Also, throughout the week, we will be sharing sneak peeks of our new products that will be released on HSN on May 14. Make sure you stop by each day so that you don’t miss a thing!
Hi Everyone! Jana Eubank here. Do you have a specific holiday or occasion that you love to scrapbook over and over? For me, I love working on school-related pages. I love the first day of school, school pictures, class pictures, class activities, you name it! This time I have a page featuring photos of my kids sneaking out of their building on the last day of school last year. (Don’t worry, I really checked them out, but they had fun pretending to escape. Ha! Ha!)
Normally, when we approach school photos, we tend to reach for traditional Primary colors of red, yellow, blue, and green. Why not do something different? Here, I lightened the traditional primary colors up a notch by incorporating the soft colors and patterns of the Graceful Season collection.
In the top left corner of the page I placed my journaling surrounded by darling accent elements from the Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil Set. I used three sheets from the 6 x 6 premium paper pad. I cut a small journal block from one of the sheets, and then used the yellow polka dot sheet and pink/orange circles sheet to create two pennant shapes.
I cut the large floral element from a sheet of the Graceful Season 12 x 12 Premium Paper Pad to accent the bottom right corner of my page, adding my photos right on top. The photos are playfully matted with the pink/white diagonal stripe from the same paper pad.
I used another cut out section from a sheet of the small 6 x 6 paper pad as a word in my title. I used a circle punch to punch out the word “routine” and then added it to a chipboard circle (from the Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil set) to give it more presence.
Stars scattered throughout the page tie everything together.
