CREATE magazine - September Edition

Hi Scrappy Friends,  Today I am sharing the pages I made for the September edition of the Scrapbook Generation CREATE magazine.  Remember this magazine is free for download HERE and you can download the free sketches HERE.  Here is the page:

Supply list:  Cardstock:  American Craft; Patterned papers:  Jillibean Soup; Stickers: Stereo Stickers; Title and diecuts; Silhouette Cameo; Other: Texture paste; Ranger Distress Inks, Prima Stamps.

One little close up:

I love working with bright colors when I do pages of my grandchildren.  I usually look for the photo that I want to use before thinking about the design.  I found that beach photos with relative neutral colors work perfectly when you want to use some bright colors.  

This photo was the inspiration for the colour challenge. 

I also used the card sketch that you will find in the magazine as inspiration for this page:
Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Teresa Collins (Urban Market); Gold foiled paper: Fancy Pants; Gold foiled vellum: My Minds Eye Necessities; Star sequins: Teresa Collins (Something Wonderful); Brads: Teresa Collins (Urban Market); Gold brad and arrow: My Minds Eye Necessities; Other: gems from stash, Prima stars template, Tim Holtz Distress Marker, Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer, Silhouette Cameo.

Some close ups:
 I took this photo at an angle to show you the lovely effect of the gold papers and embellishments.

 I really have an addiction for Teresa Collins papers.  Every single new line is a must have.

Thank you for your visit...I appreciate your comments.

  12. Such lovwely warm familyphotos. They just pop on your pages. I find a good photo is quite important on a page. I don't mean that it always has to be a 'perfect shot' technically, but there should be something a little extra to draw you in. -Like the 'pure joy' in the first photo. :-) TFS!
