September at Simple Scrapper #1

Late (as ever) but before I start sharing my October team makes, I'd like to share my September layouts.

In September, instead of having new sketches for our designs, we were asked to go back through the huge collection (over 300 sketches) and choose a particular one for a particular reason. 

With so much choice and so many fabulous designs, it took me some time to settle on #234 from March 2015 which features three Instax/Polaroid style photos. I have a small pile of Instax photos which need a home so it was a great excuse to use up these three which were taken of me and my two wonderful brothers from a few years ago. The sketch also gave me the possibility to include a good chunk of journalling while still showcasing pretty products from my Counterfeit Kit Challenge July kit, Scooped (lo#2). I combined the sketch with the Simple Scrapper Story Starter©️ Connections from March 2015 to talk a little about the relationship I developed with these two pranksters during that time. 

I liked that I could use some happy colours and even a few feminine items on this page because of the summer theme. The pinks and yellows don't feel out of place at all.

I don't really do summer holidays so it can be hard for me to find a way to incorporate traditional summer themes but the fussy cut trio of ice-cream cones reminds me of heading into town for ice-cream one evening when the boys were visiting.

To find out more about the many resources and inspiration - including the sketches and story starters I use each month - available to inspire you to create beautiful pages and tell meaningful stories in a supportive, communicative community environment, check out the Simple Scrapper premium membership here.


  1. It's nice to see a pretty summer page while I'm looking out my window on a gray, windy day with leaves blowing all around the yard. I agree that the ice cream and pinwheel embellishments can be hard to use sometime but they definitely look at home here. I also like the pretty glittery blue letters.

  2. Lovely page, that pinwheel definitely took me back to July! I am so impressed that you continue to use your older kits.

  3. Great page--lots of depth which I love!


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
