Inspired By... Scrap Page Re-Do

The assignment from Get It Scrapped!: Make a page about bikes or biking.


My page is about getting a new bicycle for my 7th birthday and again on my 50th birthday. I originally created this layout awhile back, but never really liked it. Perfect opportunity for a re-do!


Collection Featured: Basic Grey Bow Ties
 The dominant color in my photos is green, so I chose red, the complementary color, to bring energy and contrast to the layout. Small doses of blue add harmony and point out my blue bicycles. For interest and dimension, I used a variety of products: twine, chipboard, stickers, Thickers, flair, mini pearls and wood veneer.



I challenged myself to use 3 different materials for the title. The twine, Silhouette die cut and Thickers are a fun and eye-catching combination!



You can read the rest of the scrapbooking bikes article here. There's also a great article on using square photos here. Have you ever re-done a scrapbook page?

  7. I've only ever re-done one scrapbook layout because I didn't like the way the paint came out. My philosophy is that when I get everything scrapped that's on my to-scrap list, then I'll go back for re-dos. (Obviously that's not going to happen! LOL)

  13. Fab redo Sue! Although that floral paper on the original has always been a fave of mine - Cosmo, isn't it? While it is fun to see how our styles evolve, I don't want to go down the road of redoing too many - not even on a bike!
