Saturday Scraplift: I Love Office Supplies!
My secret’s out: I adore any type of office supply product. I can’t go into Office Depot or Staples without buying something, whether I need it or not. I’m pretty sure that’s what drew me to Mel’s (britgirl) fun page about her cute reading companions, Winnie and Juno. I also love to read, so the attraction was instant. Several of my fellow Creative Team members jumped at the chance to lift Mel’s page; here’s how she inspired us.
Addie (agoymerac) scrapped an adorable photo of her nieces and used stitched tags and word art to let them know how much she loves them. I really like how she arranged her photo and the tags in a loose grid pattern (love a grid!) and then supported it at the bottom with heart brush work and her title. Great spot coloring on that title, too!

Rachael (myssp) did a fabulous job with layering on her page featuring a sweet shot of Miss Molly and Drake. Every time I study her page, I find something else tucked in – a frame, a tag, a piece of note paper, a bit of twine. That black and white photo really stands out amidst the pink tones.

Valerie’s (nana_vg) page is all about the sweet relationship between a big brother and his two little sisters. The pink and blue color choices are perfect as are her use of the file labels and slide frames. Valerie did a wonderful job of including several photos and lots of journaling on a page that isn’t the least bit crowded.

I loved the labels and the subject matter of Mel’s page, so I decided to do a little recap of the books I read in 2020. The screen shots of the book covers dictated my color scheme – it’s amazing how many book covers are black and red with a spot of blue. I’m sure there’s some color psychology research involved there.
