I went through a diecut heavy phase, back when I used to scour the internet searching for hours for the perfect free file:
(I posted that one in May of 2010) Which also was the beginning of a flowery phase-I didn't like a layout unless it had some sort of flowers on it!
During April of 2011 sometime, I realized that bigger pictures=a good thing on my blog, so my pictures got bigger, and my layouts just kept getting heavier.
I still love this page, though!
After that, I went through a phase for about a year where I used a sketch for nearly every layout or card that I made. Partly because I wanted to enter a bunch of the contests that the websites ran, partly because I felt that I could scrap more quickly that way. Until I discovered Shimelle's classes/Glitter Girl videos on 2Peas, and I finally started to find a style that just flowed for me. I loved layering, I loved using up my bits and pieces, and she was just so easy and inspiring to listen to. Here is the first Glitter Girl inspired layout that I shared on my blog:
Pretty Paper Party class:
One of several that I made inspired by her Scrapbook Remix Class:
One of many inspired by Shimelle's Return to the Collection class:
Shimelle got me interested in watching all of the other garden girls videos on two peas, as well, and then I fell in love with Wilna's dreamy, artsy style.
Here's one of my favorite pages inspired by her Art and Design class:
And finally, one of my most recently completed pages, using my April Fantastic&Fabulous kit:
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have been inspired as I have reminisced through at least my online scrapbooking history today!
