Love You Most | Scrapbook Layout

I finally got my crafty groove back and I have been a making-machine! I feel SO inspired and I cannot stop pumping out layouts. Honestly, this is such a great feeling and I hope it sticks around, I'm really enjoying it! The other day I sat down with a few pieces from my stash and from the new Crate Paper Carousel collection from Maggie Holmes. I didn't have a plan, I just let the products inspire my layout. The finished product is so fun and so "Suzanna" that I just can't get enough of it. I love when that happens!


 This new Crate Paper collection by Maggie Holmes, Carousel, is so fun! I'm actually not a big fan of fairs or carnivals, but I've decided it can be used for anything. This layout is a great example of how you can take a collection with a very specific theme, but use it for a photo that is completely unrelated to that theme.

You may noticed, I tried something a little different this time - taking my layout photos on my wooden desktop rather than a white backdrop. As a reader, do you like this change? I'd love to know what you prefer! The white background felt a little boring, but I want to make sure the layout photos are coming across well for you, so let me know your thoughts!


I'm so excited to get back to creating and sharing the things I make with y'all!

Tell me, do you ever just sit down with some products you love the look of and let them dictate where your project goes? If not, I totally recommend giving it a try! Let's chat about it in the comment below.
