Hey y’all! I’m back with a super fun scraplift of one of our amazing Facebook Group’s members! This is a stunning layout by Lisa Johnston for the mood board challenge on International Scrapbooking Day and it just grabbed my attention! It was so lovely, layered, and filled with butterflies, so of course it was calling to me! I decided to take on her grid style, but add some extra photos and a masculine theme.
I started with the Offbeat patterned paper for the background. So, for each part of the grid, I essentially created a mini layout with a background, focal image, and detail work. On this top right corner, I was super excited to use this bear face as these animals were a brilliant inclusion in the Legendary Collection! I layered in some stars and cut-apart pieces, then some Nuvo, enamel dots, and ink splatter.
For this bottom right area of the grid, I did a bit of layering along with another bear ephemera piece (because my son was in the Bears level of scouts). The outdoorsy theme of this collection is perfect for camping photos and scouts, which I needed! With three kids in scouts, this has been such a fun collection to scrap both my daughter and my sons’ photos!
My favorite part of the grid, however, is this center left section. I have wanted to get a compass and mountains onto a layout every since I first opened this collection! Such cool icons and together they make a brilliant cluster for a camping layout.
I hope Lisa’s layout inspires you as much as it did me! If you’d like to see this layout come together, I have the process video below. Be sure to check in each day to see what the rest of the team has created based on our wonderful followers inspiration.
