I'm back for one last jumpstart example. I was thrilled to be able to get all four of yesterday's layouts done within just a couple of hours by working on them all at the same time, and basing them all around the same basic design. So I made another set of three layouts, but this time instead of basing them on the same design, I based them on the same supply. Remember how I asked you Monday to find some new or unused products? Pull them out for today, and choose one supply that just gets you excited. (When I say supply, I mean one sheet or rubons or stickers, or a digital kit, on some other pack of embellishments you’ll be able to use for three different layouts.)
I chose this poking fun digital kit by Betsy Tuma available at twopeasinabucket.com. I love the look of the poked holes, and I loved the variety of shapes included. I knew I could easily make three layouts using this kit as my inspiration.
I saw those squares and immediately envisioned them with small pictures inside each one. I decided it would be perfect for a baseball layout, since I had the journaling written and pictures chosen, but none of the pictures were really fantastic. I pretty quickly came up with this:
For my next layout from this kit, I decided to use some of the poked holes circles instead of squares. I cropped my photo into a circle, added a circular date tag, and tried out different combinations of poked holes circles until I was happy with the final design.
For my third layout I combined the poking fun kit with a digital patterned paper kit I’d purchased but hadn’t used yet (Wishing for Sunshine kit by Holly McCaig at twopeasinabucket.com). I just loved looking at the papers next to each other, so I decided to use them in strips above a photo. The “boxiness” of the entire design was again inspired by one of the square poking holes shapes. This simple layout came together extremely quickly.
There you have it: three layouts all inspired by one supply—another three layouts completed in a couple of days, jumpstart fashion. Again, since I had pre-written all the journaling and picked out photos before I even started, these layouts came together extra quickly.
So get going! See if you can’t get three layouts done in the next few days – if you’ve already made a list, written journaling, and chosen some photos, you’re nearly there. Take a look at those favorite layouts from years past, or pull out some new supplies, and jumpstart your scrapbooking!
