During April in the Inspired Scrapbooking course at Big Picture Classes, Stacy Julian asked, “What inspires you?”

“Hmmmm,” I thought, “what does inspire me? What actually prompts me to sit down and scrapbook?”

As I took a look at several of my latest pages, I realized that I am first and foremost inspired by paper. Yes, paper! Since I was a child, I have loved the look, feel, and touch of paper–all kinds of paper. And now I am able to play with beautiful patterned paper!

So when I sat down to make a page for this month’s challenge, I looked at all of the paper currently sitting on my desk. The papers were from a recent Studio Calico kit. One paper, Now is Now, is not the type of paper that I normally use. I almost pushed it aside, but something inspired me to keep it out in front of me. The colors in the paper reminded me of a photo that I recently took of my daughter. So I printed out the picture and used just a few embellishments to finish off the page.


This layout is truly a result of pure inspiration.
