It’s funny how creative inspiration can come from anywhere. As I sat down to create some new scrapbook pages with the Close To My Heart Some Kinda Wonderful Paper Packet, I was listening to music and the Justin Timberlake song, “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” came on in the background. Have you heard that song? It’s such a fun, upbeat kind of song, and one particular line kept going through my mind. It’s says, “I got that sunshine in my pocket…” Well, there you have it! Here I was looking at this wonderful, brightly colored, happy paper and that song set my whole creative process into motion. As you will see in the first layout, I used that lyric for the title, too. It seems like a great title for preserving all kinds of different photo themes and memory making moments.
I made four layouts all together with the Some Kinda Wonderful Paper Packet and the Some Kinda Wonderful Coordinating Cardstock. I really had fun mixing in some stamping, Cricut die-cuts, Black and White Dots, and White Twine. The Coordinating Cardstock pack did not include Lemon Cardstock, so I did add that in. I just had to have that bright, “sunshine” kind of yellow to go with the title. What do you think?
If you follow my blog, you know how I love alphabet fonts, especially mixing and matching alphabet fonts. To make the title on the first layout, I used the font that is on the Close To My Heart Flower Market Cricut Cartridge to spell out the word “POCKET,” and then used a pre-made word from the same cartridge for “Sunshine,” adding a script look to that word. The “IN MY” is actually stamped with the Close To My Heart Pen Pal Alphabet Set.
Then I used the Some Kinda Wonderful – Scrapbooking Stamp Set to add some extra details. It is made to specifically coordinate with this paper and has designs that are terrific for scrapbooking with accent pieces, titles, journal boxes, etc. These are the ten different designs that come in the set. Can you find where I have used some of these pieces on the pages?
I love the bright colors in these layouts. They make the pages cheerful and sort of toe-tapping happy, just like the song that brought the initial inspiration to the pages. I think there are so many different types of photo themes that would be perfect on them. Unfortunately, we have a very small window to get the Some Kinda Wonderful Paper Pack, because it is retiring on April 30th. That means it is only available for three more days! Wow!
I will not be creating full Workshop Guides for these pages, however, I do have Workshop Kits available. The Workshop Kits include the everything pre-cut and pre-stamped, all of the accessories, with instructions and photos to put them together. That will make is so quick and easy for you to create these pages and add them to you albums. There are even two Scrapbook Workshop dates if you live in the Boise area and would like to come make them at my house.
