NSD Countdown: Scraplift Inspiration with Dream Team Member Jana Morton

Dream Team Member Jana Morton

Make Your Title Bold and Beautiful

Hello. This is Jana Morton. I am ALWAYS excited to see the latest Creating Keepsakes magazine. I feel like each page is packed with inspiration and I’m always on the lookout for new ways to document the everyday stories of our lives.

The latest May/June issue is loaded with ideas. As a scrapbooker, I think it is so fun to follow someone’s lead and scrap-lift their page. I love that I can follow their page exactly or incorporate their ideas into my style.The page possibilities are endless.

When I saw Jen Jockisch’s fabulous page, I knew immediately that this page was calling my name.

Inspiration layout:

Wishbone by Jen Jockisch, as seen in the May/June 2013 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.

Her bold and beautiful title work captured my attention. I couldn’t wait to lift it. I love how she created negative space with the text and then filled it in behind with various colors of patterned paper.

My layout:

Life is About Using the Whole Box of Crayons by Jana Morton. Digital Supplies:Color My Love Kit, Spiral Bound Paper No. 2, Hey Missy Kit, Word Labels Love, Scrpbbling Brushes, Notebook No. 5, and Winter Woods Solids: Katie Pertiet; Heart Brush: Ali Edwards; Feltboard Friends: Chalktalk: Patti Knox.

When I saw Jen’s page, I thought of this quote that a friend recently shared with me. I thought it would work perfectly for the theme of my page. My children love to create art just as much as I do. I adore their drawings. Each piece reminds me of how precious this stage is and gives me a glimpse into their sweet, little hearts. I frequently scan their work into the computer because I just love to have it on hand and I don’t want to ever lose it. I always enjoy creating scrapbook pages that showcase their artwork. Using Jen’s great title work, my daughter’s drawing, a fun quote, a couple of photos and a few digital accessories….well, I’ll just say that I love it when a plan comes together quickly. Jen’s title treatment immediately drew me right into the page. I encourage you to give it a try. It is such an easy and fun way of capturing the viewer’s attention.

Have fun and I look forward to seeing your work in the Club CK gallery!
