July Simple Scrapper Layouts

Hi All! It's a new month, which means new Simple Scrapper layouts. The theme this month is all about music. My layout is about a most magical performance i saw of Tom Odell at a local music festival last summer. If you aren't aware of Tom Odell, you should really check him out. 

i also made 2 layouts using sketches this month. This is a rather silly photo of me and it's paired with journaling about how i never really had any plans of what i wanted to do with my life and how i still employ the 'go with the flow' attitude now. i'm in a phase of life where everyone i know seems to be planning a wedding, buying property (or cats!) or starting a family and i am most definitely not ready for any of those things! So i think i just needed to get this layout out to reassure myself that that is ok. This layout is what i like to call 'scrap therapy' :) 

i think my favourite thing about this page design wise is the title. It's such an easy way to add stamping without the fear of messing up your entire page. i am going to employ this trick again for sure. Love how the sketches always push me to try new things on my pages. 

This last layout also includes stamping, and quite a bit of it. Lately i am really into creating my own pattern papers or 3x4 cards by repeating stamps. It's such a good way to add themed product to your page and get mileage from your stamps. i also used a polka dot stamp for some added pattern and the 'Happiness is' stamp for the title. This colour combo is a current fave. i am so enjoying the beautiful weather we are having on the south coast lately. 

Stash Bash is on the way and starts on the 14th of July. Registration is now open! i think this is probably my most favourite event that Jennifer organises. Last year i got really stuck in and i can't wait to see what she has in store for us this time around. This is a week long event that helps you use up, declutter, and organise your supplies. You could think of it as a kind of organisation party. Or you can choose to use this week to focus on using up your stash, which is what i plan to do. Jennifer is also offering the event with 3 months membership included, which is an absolute bargain!

The Premium Membership at Simple Scrapper provides skills and shortcuts to help you simplify and find more meaning in your memory keeping.

I really love the design of the second one with the journalling on the base and the photo on the pp. I've been going through a phase of working the other way round (so I can fit a journaling page in the typewriter), and now this has inspired me to think about working in a different way :)
