When Valerie O’Neall pulled out the Every Little Piece scrapbook kit from Little Black Dress Kit Club in January 2013, I like to think she said, “Oh MY!” and that was the inspiration for this scrapbook page. Of course, that’s ridiculous, but it’s a fun thought. But when you look at the scrapbook layout at hand, it’s obvious that Valerie used something else as inspiration: shoes. It’s a classic inspiration for me, too. So I completely understand. I once created an entire mini album of shoes. (It was fabulous!) You should try it.
For today…check out Valerie’s Oh My Scrapbook Layout:
Favorite bits and pieces on Valerie’s Oh My Scrapbook page: The wood grain (it’s been an amazing showpiece on several layouts from different designers this month. You’re going to love it), the teensy “cute shoes” subtitle, the clear and simple use of the “oh my” for the title, the date stamp (bottom right), the hidden envelope/pocket peaking out from the side of the photo layering for journaling, and highlighted on this page….the buttons and trim from the January 2013 scrapbook kit.
Here’s a closeup of the scrapbook page:
Shoes….oh shoes. They are so lovely and so necessary at the same time so it’s hard for anyone to knock your love of them because…you NEED them. And what’s even better? TINY shoes. You got it. Tiny shoes are just cuter than any other version.
Have you scrapped any shoes lately? Think about it. You might be missing a great opportunity for inspiration.
