For this issue’s inspiration I have a very sweet and simple quote image. There is so much inspiration in this one image, the words, the colors, the hearts, the typography… Wow!
Inspiration Image is from Stephanie Ackerman at homegrownhospitality.typepad.com
Editor's Note: Stephanie is a serious doodler; check out her blog and catch some of her wonderful inspiration!
Now let's see how these five designers approached this inspiration. Isn’t it amazing that the same image can be interpreted in so many different ways?
I love how Michelle turned the words from the quote into her scrapbook pages’ title. Sweet and simply beautiful! For her layout’s title, Nirupama drew inspiration from the words, but she also included different textures and fonts to make a stunning layout!
Sweet, Simple, Real By Michelle McClung
Supplies: Paper, Alphabet: Webster's Pages, Stickers: Webster's Pages, October Afternoon, Twine: We R Memory Keepers, Liquid Pearls: Ranger Industries.
Design Note: I had these everyday pictures to scrap, but never had the right inspiration for them. When I saw this quote, I knew they would go well together on the Webster's papers which had the same theme. Thanks for the inspiration!
Journaling: I am beginning to learn that it s the sweet simple things of life which are the real ones after all.

Design Note: I was inspired by the print to choose for Inspiration way to use a sweet and simple photo and include a long quote from my brother as my entire title. I mixed colors and shapes similar to the print you choose.
Journaling: My absolute favorite picture is her sitting up in the monster outfit. I look at it to make me smile.
