Hello, welcome to Inspiration Station with Becki Adams. Today, I have an awesome Creative Scrapbooker Magazine GIVEAWAY to share with you. Recently, our friends at Creative Scrapbooker Magazine sent me a copy of their Summer 2017 issue. As soon as I opened the envelope and saw the magazine, I fell in love with the layout on the cover. I knew I had to create a layout of my own inspired by the layout on the cover. The first thing I noticed about the gorgeous layout on the cover was the beautiful yellow background. I love yellow! The yellow patterned paper on the background of the cover layout made the photo pop off the background, I wanted to use a yellow patterned paper for the background of my layout as well.After choosing a photo for the layout, I chose patterned papers that would compliment my photo and coordinate with the yellow background. Then, I created lots of layers behind my photo to mimic the layers found under the photo on the cover layout. If you’ll notice, there is a banner shape below the photo on the left side, I chose to add a dark blue banner to my layout to match my nephews pajamas in the photo.
The title on my layout is a bit larger than the title on the cover layout. I really wanted to emphasize the word “smile” on this layout because my nephew’s smile is so adorable! Under the title, I did add a bit of journaling. Adding journaling is an absolute MUST for me on all of my layouts. If nothing else, I add the names of people who are in the photo and the date. (I did add the name and date to this layout as well. I just did it after I took the photographs for privacy reasons.)Now, it’s your turn to be inspired by this incredible magazine. This issue is packed with SO many amazing Summer projects! Creative Scrapbooker Magazine has generously offered to share a copy of the Summer issue with one of my readers, yay!!!
