A Peek at My Process

I love seeing how others create scrapbook pages and what goes into their thought process. So I thought I would share a bit of my process with you today. I hope you enjoy it!

Usually I start a page with photos, but sometimes I want to play with my supplies. I'm beginning this layout with all I have left of the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection. I've loved this line so much that I want to use every last scrap! Cardstock, patterned paper, ink and thread are all I need to get going.

I also used a border punch on the striped strips, and came up with this background. Plenty of possibilities from here! I have not selected my pictures yet, but the colors give me plenty of ideas.

I make sure my photo, title and journaling have a home, and then I start embellishing.

Here's the final page. I really enjoyed doing a layout about our house in the spring, and think every season should be represented. So I'm considering this the first in a series!

You can see more about my scrapping process here. Do you tend to start your pages from the same point (like photos) or do you like to mix it up? Here's a challenge: Start your next page with something you usually do at the end!

What a pretty layout and what a great idea. Having one from each season is a wonderful idea and you could do it through the years too. Beautiful!
Some of us were just talking about this the other day. I always start with my pictures and go from there. They were talking about taking a class or making a layout from kit and I have a tough time with that. When I make a layout that way, it ends up sitting and doesn't get used. I just never seem to find the pictures to go onto the "pre-made" layout.
So start with pictures, choose my paper/s, figure out where the pics go, then journal and embellish.
