My LEAP with Picture Perfect Daily Diary Kit

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the month of March and a brand NEW kit!
Exciting stuff.

This week's theme is all about taking a leap...taking on a new page design, or new technique...something out of my personal norm.

So as much as I do love trying new things....it definitely was a bit intimidating! Change...always a struggle, right?!?


So, what I did come up with for the challenge is a fun new way (for me) to use pocket page cards.  I decided to essentially create my own background pattern paper by combining the various cards and turns out...I love it!


Usually as much as I love bold colors, patterns and designs...I often find I do not implement them too often in my own scrapbooking.  However, after this challenge I think that might change!  I loved playing with the patterns and pops of color.  It really was fun and I think also a great way to use up those extra cards we all have lying in our stashes.


Once my background page was complete, I even added some subtle machine stitching.  Then I had fun adding in my photo along with some of the many awesome embellishments that made up the kit this month.  I am obsessed with the type word strip stickers! You will definitely be seeing them on everything this month.  I really had fun mixing and matching the embellishments and playing with colour.


I truly love challenges such as these that push me out of comfort zones.  I have definitely learned to "embrace colour more"...and patterns!  Really work at mixing and matching...it's fun!  I am loving all of the possible combinations and this challenge really has helped me creatively.  It was really fun bringing everything together.

See you next week!
