DT Inspiration with Aphra!

Today I wanted to share with you my inspiration behind these two journals that I made for my sons, Jonathan and Ethan.

First, there was this Studio Calico sheet in the patterned paper add-on kit. I immediately thought of school and making some sort of ABC book for my youngest. However, once I got started, I decided to create a little journal for him to practice writing his letters. He LOVES playing school.

Then, I came across these Studio Calico Phrases Rub-Ons from the Embellishment Kit. Immediately, I thought of the writing prompts that I used to give my students for their daily journals. I decided to make my oldest a journal using each of the statements on a page. I can't wait to see what he'll write. That will make for a great scrapbook layout later on, too.

I hope I've inspired you to let your scrappy supplies lead the way. You might just be surprised what you end up creating. See you soon!
