scrapbooking starting point
Are you ready to be amazed? I have not completely abandoned starting points! I had just a tiny bit of time to do some just-for-fun scrapping before the moving boxes arrived, so I started with this starting point for a new page: one full sheet of a subtle single-colour patterned paper, like a stripe for the background. Then everything else is arranged on the top third of the page – one 4×11 inch box, one 2.5×11.5, a smaller 4×5 box and a border-punched strip just shy of the full page width. I used my dwindling stash of Garden Cafe for this start – I love all those turquoise tones in that collection from last autumn.

Finished, it looks a bit like this! Some crocheted trim, that lovely rose ribbon from the first Dear Lizzy collection (I’ll admit it: I was afraid to use it and now I’m slightly ashamed that it’s still in my ribbon drawer. It may appear on a few more projects soon to make me feel much better about that situation!) and lots of paper elements from Dear Lizzy Neapolitan and 5th & Frolic (out soon!). Very pink Bella Blvd chevron tape. Plus those turquoise Amy Tangerine letters I’m using on pretty much anything that stands still at the moment.
