Two Page Tuesday: A Home Decor Trend for Scrapbooking

Home decor trends can be a creative source of ideas for scrapbook page design.  In 2013, one of the evident trends is punchy flowers with stripes. My Get It Scrapped! assignment was to use this pattern combo on a layout.
Choosing a coordinated product line takes the guess work out of mixing patterns and colors. This collection from Pebbles contains a pleasing variety of stripes and florals in bright, "punchy" colors. I especially like the contrast of the white and grey backgrounds.


Collection Featured: Pebbles Seen & Noted

To create the title, I cut the script word with my Silhouette, paired it with Pebbles letter stickers and added Doodlebug Mini Pearls.
Then I layered paper, stickers and more mini pearls to create my own dimensional embellishments. It took a little time, but I got exactly what I wanted and likely saved some money over buying a pack of premade stickers. (not that there's anything wrong with that!)

There are more examples from the design team and links to articles with information on mixing patterns right here. What is one of your favorite home decor trends? Have you ever tried using it on a scrapbook page?

  7. Love how you used the floral papers. I can never use them because they look so wild but cutting them down mutes them.

  13. I like your title with all those mini colorful pearls around it. Very festive. You did a great job using this floral paper. Chevrons and other geometric patterns are popular in both paper and fabric for the home these days.

  15. I like your embellishments. the other advantage is that you only make what you use and don't have odd ones floating around after you've used the rest of thepack!
