Happy National Scrapbook Weekend! The Bazzill Basics design team is excited to celebrate with you! Today we want to share some inspiration to help kick off your weekend creativity! Start at the Bazzill Basics blog for maximum inspiration!
Thank you for visiting my blog today! I am so grateful to have scrapbooking in my life! It has opened up many possibilities for me and most importantly has connected me to so many other women who share the same passion. From all over the world. Isn't that amazing about our community?
We are united by our passion for creating and documenting memories and also pretty things. Earlier this year I travelled to the USA to attend the amazing CHA trade show. While there I stayed with the most amazing group of people. We all connected and talked and laughed and I feel like I've known them my whole life.
The number of people I also saw at CHA after knowing them online was also quite surreal. It was such an awesome experience. I almost cannot put it into words.
I'm grateful for each and every one of you!
Today I want to share with you all an older layout that has been shared on the Bazzill Basics blog previously, but not on mine, and it is celebrating those connections.
I decided to create a pie chart effect on my background, with 6 pieces of “pie”, one for each of the beautiful personalities in the photo. For two of the “slices” I used patterned paper (from Heidi Swapp’s September Skies collection) and then pulled out some Bazzill cardstock to match, for the other 4 slices.
I used a different embossing folder for each colour of cardstock. I just love the effect! I ended up pulling colours from different Bazzill collections, that best suited the patterned paper.
I also die cut and embossed a couple of accents from the gold foil cardstock, such as the butterfly in the photo above!
