I have a fun announcement to make! Today the Scrumptiously Creative Team welcomes a new member, scrapper extraordinaire Bina Greene.
Welcome, Bina!!! We’re so excited to have you join us!
February was Winter Layout Madness month at Pixel Scrapper. All month long Pixel Scrappers completed challenges and made layout after layout. I sponsored a challenge using my designs (folks could use designs from the site or use freebies from this blog) and had such a great time seeing all their creative uses for Scrumptiously kits. There’s really nothing that brings me more pleasure than to see people scrapping with my designs. It was also great to see people getting caught up on their scrapping, being super productive, experimenting with challenges that took them out of their comfort zone, and getting back into scrapping again after a long time away.
One of the prizes for participating in my challenge was a spot on the Scrumptiously Creative Team, and Bina was the winner! I’ve admired her layouts in the Pixel Scrapper gallery for a long time, so I was thrilled to invite her to the team. Bina scraps both pocket and traditional layouts, so she’s a fantastic fit for my design style. She’s also a master of the clean & simple, lots-of-white-space style I’ve been drawn to lately and I plan to learn a lot from her. I hope this will be the start of a beautiful creative partnership!
Speaking of clean & simple, minimalist style, I have a new Spring kit, Fresh Start, and it’s my first foray (as a designer) into a more minimalist look. Fresh Start was created as part of the Pixel Scrapper designer Pick Your Pixels collaboration for March, which has the overall theme of Fresh. Fresh Start is full of lovely light springtime colors, plenty of white space, and an overall peaceful yet playful vibe.
Fresh Start has elements, patterned papers, cardstock papers, and a set of journal cards that come in multiple colorways and orientations. The journal cards were made using my Pocket Basics 2 Minimalist Journal Card Templates and are a great example of how journal card templates can be used again and again to make unique, fresh-looking (pun intended!) journal card sets for different kits.
Here are a couple more lovely layouts from other creative team members – a tale about a bee from Paddy and an adorable pocket page from Emily.
