Prompt 1 - Use an unexpected pop of colour
Sometimes when I'm scrapping I get into a colour slump. There are colour combinations that I tend to be drawn towards and use over and over again. There's nothing wrong with that, believe me, but sometimes it's fun to kick it up a notch and add a contrasting colour to a favorite combo!
Prompt 2 - Use craft cardstock or products
Craft products and cardstock has been popular for the past few years, though I feel it may have reached its peak. That doesn't mean though that we should stop using it. Craft is a great neutral tone to use in almost any scrap layout. I like how it can add a pop, or create a focal point without going over the top.
Prompt 3 - Use some ribbon or fabric
I have it, you have it, we all know we have it. Tons of ribbons or little fabric bits. I have a whole container of them, but I never get around to using them so I decided to just go for it and add some ribbon onto my layout.
Prompt 4 - Use a favorite piece of paper
Yes that's right, use it, stop hoarding it! I am guilty of it too. I used to hoard so much paper, just waiting for the perfect picture to pair it with. I have even been guilty of taking photos with certain colours in them or with a certain theme just to go with my favorite papers. I have been trying more often to use up my favorite papers, and sometimes, yes, even cut them up!
Prompt 5 - Scrap a hard to scrap photo
This is something I do quite frequently and another habit I've been trying to break. I have so many photos that I am just scared to scrapbook. Whether you have a hard time scrapping themed photos or aren't sure what to do with some sweet summer portraits it's time to get them scrapped. I myself have quite a few photos that are just so sweet and perfect, but I'm not even sure where to begin when it comes to scrapping them so I have decided to just go for it.
So here is my layout using my 5 new prompts.
Thanks for the inspiration, Cathy!
